China Masterbatch Market to Grow at Over 12% through 2020

 Growing demand in packaging, automotive and building & construction industries to drive China masterbatch market through 2020

According to recently published TechSci Research report, “China Masterbatch Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020”, the masterbatch market in China is projected to exhibit significant growth at a CAGR of over 12% during 2015 – 2020. Masterbatches are concentrated mixtures of pigments and additives, used for coloring and imparting specific properties to polymers. In order to use masterbatches for various applications, they are mixed into base polymer resins through different processes such as injection molding, film extrusion, fiber extrusion, profile extrusion, pipe extrusion, calendaring, blown film extrusion, etc. Based on their use and appearance, masterbatches are classified into four major types- black, white, color and additive masterbatches, which are used for diverse applications.

Over the past five years, China has evolved from being a masterbatch importer to becoming a masterbatch exporting country. Growth in China masterbatch market is anticipated on account of continuously rising demand from major end use industries including packaging, building & construction, and automotive industries. Moreover, masterbatch consumption for packaging has increased significantly in China over the last five years due to rising popularity of small pack sizes, expanding sales and distribution network of plastic processors and plastic products, as well as growing flexible packaging market.

“Owing to increasing consumer interest in product aesthetics and rising concern towards the environment, the demand for color masterbatches and additive masterbatches is surging in the packaging industry. While color masterbatches impart attractive colors to packages, additive masterbatches enhance properties like durability, fire resistance, biodegradability, etc. Due to increasing demand for colorful and eco-friendly packaging, color masterbatch and additive masterbatch are expected to be the fastest growing segments in China masterbatch market, over the next five years.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
