Masterbatches are manufactured by the combination of pigments and additives, and are used to impart color and other desired properties to plastics during a manufacturing process. Masterbatches are broadly classified into four categories - white, black, color and additive. In Europe, masterbatch consumption in packaging industry has increased significantly 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. Moreover, they are also being used in automotive industry during the manufacturing of light weight vehicles on account of increasing government regulations on rising CO emission levels in the region. Moreover, leading food & beverage companies are constantly exploring new packaging materials for attracting more eyeballs, which is further fueling masterbatch demand in the region.

According to Europe Masterbatch Market By Type, By End User, By Country, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2011 - 2021, the masterbatch market in Europe is projected to cross US$ 6.3 billion by 2021. Increasing per capita plastic consumption, growing packaging industry and rising demand from plastic and polymer manufacturers are the major factors anticipated to boost demand for masterbatch in Europe. In 2015, white masterbatch accounted for the largest share in the region’s masterbatch market owing to their ability to provide opacity to the base polymer. This trend is expected to continue over the next five years as well. Packaging industry is expected to remain the largest demand generator for masterbatch market in Europe, followed by construction and automotive sectors.
