Masterbatch Market: Key Takeaways

  • Market in Asia Pacific region to propel the highest growth
  • The Packaging segment to garner the highest growth
  • Market in Europe region to grow at a highest rate

Integration of Plastic in the Automobile Sector to Boost the Growth of the Masterbatch Market

A typical automobile contains 30,000 parts, almost a third of which are made of plastic. Carburetors, fenders, dashboards, handles, engine covers, interior wall panels, seating, truck bed liners, cable insulation, and other pieces are made of plastic. During the growth of transportation vehicles, producers and makers have made several material adaptations and enhancements to ensure that these vehicles are as efficient as possible for their customers. Since they are lightweight and fuel-efficient, plastics are the principal material used in transportation vehicles. Plastics provide features that allow automobiles to be safe, lightweight, and pleasant for passengers, as well as enabling manufacturers to make their vehicles appear better to consumers.

Masterbatch Industry: Regional Overview

The global masterbatch market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.

Increased Production of Plastic and Plastic Products is to Boost the Growth of the Market in the Asia Pacific Region

In 2021, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region generated slightly more than half of the world's plastics around 52% of 390.7Mt worldwide. Because it accounts for so much of the world's total manufacturing of plastic and is home to some of the world's top plastic producers, APAC has the potential to be a leader in making the switch to a circular economy for plastic packaging. In addition to this, In 2021, China was the world's leading producer of plastic, contributing to 32% of global plastics materials manufacture. Other Asian countries were also important plastic manufacturers, with Japan contributing 3% of world manufacturing of plastic and the rest of Asia representing 17%. Furthermore, the rising creativity in the packaging has also boosted the market growth in the region. Lecka, a Vietnamese healthy snack company, was the first in the region to employ home compostable and biodegradable food packaging with success. Singha, a Thai beer brand, has come up with 100% biodegradable packaging for certain of its products, eliminating conventional plastic film.

Rising Government Efforts to Regulate Sustainable Packaging is to Elevate Masterbatch Market Growth in Europe

The European Commission is proposing new EU-wide packaging regulations. The new regulations are intended to halt this tendency. They will offer reusable packaging options for consumers, eliminate needless packaging, prevent overpackaging, and give clear labels to encourage proper recycling. Europe is becoming less reliant on primary resources and external suppliers. They are going to put the packaging industry on schedule to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The Commission also clarifies biobased, compostable, and biodegradable plastics for consumers and industry. Moreover, a lot of efforts aim to make packaging completely recyclable by 2030. It entails introducing packaging design guidelines, implementing mandatory deposit return systems for plastic bottles and aluminum cans, and making it clear which very restricted forms of packaging must be biodegradable so that consumers are able to reuse them.

Masterbatch Segmentation by Carrier Polymer

  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • HDPE
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
  • Polyurethane (PUR)
  • Polystyrene (PS)

Based on carrier polymer, the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) segment is going to garner notable revenue in the market by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment is attributed to rising demand for polyethylene terephthalate (PET). PET is typically used for carbonated soft drinks (CSD), edible oil, water, and jars, but it is now utilized for almost all end-users. PET resin use has increased by 10-12% each year on average, reaching 1.10 million tonnes per year (TPA) in 2020. It was made up of around 94% bottles and nearly 6% sheets/straps/monofilaments/others. Furthermore, in 2021, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) packaging accounted for nearly 45% of single-serve beverage packaging in the United States.

Masterbatch Segmentation by End User

  • Packaging
  • Building & Construction
  • Consumer Goods
  • Automotive
  • Agriculture
  • Petrochemicals

On the basis of end user, the masterbatch market packaging segment is expected to gain the highest market revenue over the forecasted period. The growth of the segment is majorly attributed to the rising demand for sustainable and flexible packaging. As of January 2023, the number of customers demanding sustainable packaging has climbed to 81%, representing yet another significant step towards eradicating plastic waste. Moreover, in the United Kingdom, around 50% of customers are willing to pay more if the goods are packed in sustainable packaging. Additionally, nearly 33% have completely rejected packaging that is not sustainable.

Recent Developments in Masterbatch Market

  • LyondellBasell's Polybatch 73641 NIR black color masterbatch has received COTREP certification, proving that polymers containing these masterbatches can be segregated using ordinary Near-Infrared (NIR) sorting equipment. Black and dark-colored plastics are challenging to distinguish between in post-consumer garbage because they are undetectable to optical or near-infrared detectors often employed in material recycling plants.
  • Avient Corporation, a leading developer of tailored and environmentally friendly product solutions and services, announced the launch of two new extensions to its MEVOPURTM portfolio of medical-grade materials to assist manufacturers of pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices in meeting sustainability targets. MEVOPUR medical-grade products are manufactured in compliance with ISO13485-2016 methods and tested in accordance with ISO 10993-1, USP, European Pharmacopoeia, and ICH Q3D criteria.
