Report Description

The Germany masterbatch market is anticipated to observe an impressive growth during the forecast period, 2024-2028. The market is expanding quickly due to many key drivers, including an increased demand from various end-user industries such as automotive, transportation, building & construction, consumer goods, among others. A masterbatch is a type of liquid or solid additive used to tint or color polymers. It is utilized to improve the qualities of the plastics as well as their appearance. Besides, a masterbatch is available in both solid and liquid forms and is used for imparting color. Additionally, a masterbatch also enhances useful properties of polymers such as flame retardation, antilocking, antifog, among others.

Increasing Adoption and use of Plastics in the Automotive Industry

The automobile sector is increasingly using plastic instead of metal, which is boosting market expansion. In order to reduce vehicle weight and carbon emissions, plastic materials are increasingly being used in the automobile sector. Furthermore, as personal vehicles become more popular, plastics are being used more and more in the automotive sector since they have completely changed how safe, effective, and useful vehicles are built. Plastic goods dominate the automotive electrical & electronics industry. The interiors of cars and other vehicles are one of the important factors that consumers consider when making product purchases, and plastic is frequently employed in these interiors. The need for technical polymers used in cars has increased as a result of rising disposable income, which has also boosted the demand for cars. The German automobile sector, for instance, sold 2,051,958 units passenger Cars and Commercial vehicles by September 2022.

Increasing Demand for Biodegradable Masterbatches to Foster the Market Growth

The medical industry in Germany has a significant demand for biodegradable masterbatches. The masterbatch industry is expanding overall due to the rapidly expanding uses of polymers in a variety of medical implants, packaging, disposable equipment, and gadgets. The demand for medical polymers and other bio-degradable polymer goods is increasing due to factors such a rising incidence of chronic illnesses and an ageing population, which is also having a favorable impact on the market. The geriatric population of Germany (population 65 years and older) as of December 31, 2021, was around 18.44 million.

Increasing Focus on Plastic Packaging

The market is booming due to the increasing use of plastic packaging across several industries, including food & beverage, personal care, and home. This is due to the convenience and changing lifestyles that are driving the demand for packaged food as well as the expanding penetration of the e-retail sector. The demand for packaged food has significantly increased after the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
