Masterbatch Market: Summary

The Global Masterbatch Market is estimated to reach USD 12.9 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 5.2%.

Masterbatch is a solid product in which additives or pigments are optimally dispersed at a high concentration in carrier materials. Masterbatch are a type of additives which are produced in black, white, and various other colors. These variations in color additives are used to combine and form the desired color in target applications. Plastic is devoid of color and masterbatch is used to impart color and strengthen the properties of plastics in various applications. Masterbatch has become an integral part of polymer and aplastic manufacturing. Cost-effective, easy to use, less amount of waste, and similar other properties are some of the benefits offered by the masterbatch.

Masterbatch Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Rising Demand of Plastics from the Automotive Industry

Plastic is being used in the design and manufacturing of automotive vehicles. It has become more essential with growing stringent regulation and changing consumer demand for lighter, more affordable, and fuel-efficient vehicles. Fuel efficiency has become a vital characteristic in the automotive industry owing to rising fuel prices and stringent government regulations for lower gas emissions. However, a masterbatch is used for the manufacturing of plastic products which are been used in the manufacturing of automotive vehicles.
