Lucintel anticipates that Asia Pacific will be the fastest growing region for the global masterbatch market
The major driver for growth of this market is increasing demand for plastic as substitutes for various materials like metal, concrete, and steel in various end use industries. In this market, packaging, building and construction, consumer goods, transportation, electrical and electronics, and fiber and textiles are the major end use industries.
Color masterbatch is expected to be the largest market by value and volume because it’s used for special effect and colors to distinguish products. By carrier resin type, polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and polystyrene (PS) are the major carrier resin utilized to manufacture masterbatch.
PE resin is expected to be the largest market by value and volume due to growth in demand of PE based plastic products. Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to remain the largest region by value and volume; APAC is also expected to experience the highest growth over the forecast period due to growth in end use industries.
Increasing urbanization, rising construction and infrastructure activities, changing consumer lifestyles, economic development, and demand for plastic products especially in China and India are the major growth drivers. Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include growing demand of anti-shrinkage and flame retardant masterbatches for PP pipes and PC sheets, and increasing demand for biodegradable masterbatch products.
