Market Essence

Masterbatch facilitates a convenient way of adding color and/or performance enhancing additives to natural or base polymers. In this market research study, we are covering two major masterbatch markets- color masterbatch and additive masterbatch. Replacement of metals and other materials by plastics in automotive, construction, and consumer goods application is driving the market for color and additive masterbatches globally.

The report qualitatively and quantitatively analyzes revenue drivers, restraining factors, and opportunities present for active companies in this market. Increasing use of plastics as a substitute for conventional materials and growing demand for colored and performance plastics from emerging economies is projected to drive the market in the coming years.        

We analyze the market attractiveness with help of Porter’s five forces model. This model is based on the qualitative and quantitative inputs from primary respondents and secondary data sources such as annual reports, press releases, company websites, and Industry Essence’s paid databases. This model analyzes most influential factors for the market and assists companies in taking key decisions such as exploration of investments avenues, expansion plans, production enhancement, market strategy building, pricing and product positioning, revenue enhancement, and deciding backward/forward integration steps.

Color Masterbatch Market is segmented on the basis of color types- standard color, specialty color, and tailor made color markets. Specialty color market is further sub segmented as- Metallic, Pearlescent, Fluorescent, and Phosphorescent masterbatches.

In this report, we have segmented Additive Masterbatch Market by product type- Antimicrobial, Antioxidant (primary, secondary, and primary & secondary), Flame retardant, and others (UV Stabilizer, Optical Brightener, Antiblock, Antistatic, Clarifying/Nucleating, Processing Aid, and Slip Masterbatches).   

Color and Additive Masterbatch Market is segmented on the basis of carrier resin. It includes- Polyethylene (PE) (LLDPE, LDPE, & HDPE), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS), and others.
