The masterbatch is cost-effective and easy to use, owing to which it finds applications in the production of plastic products, which are utilized in the textile, packaging, electronics, automotive, construction and pharmaceutical industries worldwide.

Global Masterbatch Market Trends:

Rapid urbanization, in confluence with the escalating demand for environment-friendly and innovative coloring agents, represents one of the major factors strengthening the market growth. Apart from this, there is a significant rise in the demand for masterbatch, which is emerging from the automotive sector. Automobile manufacturers nowadays are replacing heavy metal parts with lightweight plastic components that are fortified with masterbatches to obtain the desired colors and mechanical properties. Furthermore, the growing awareness about the advantageous properties of the product, which includes providing enhanced color consistency, opacity and dispersion rate, acts as another growth-inducing factor. Other factors that are projected to fuel the market growth include the rising utilization of black masterbatch for infrastructural applications and the increrasing demand for bio-based plastic products, such as agricultural films. On account of these factors, the market value is projected to reach US$ 16.9 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
