Trends, opportunities, and forecast in masterbatch market to 2026 by product type (color, white, black, additive, and filler) end use industry (packaging, consumer goods, electrical and electronics, transportation, fiber and textiles, building and construction, and others), resin carrier type (PE, PP, PS, PC, and Others), by process (film extrusion, blow molding, injection molding, pipe, conducit and tubing, extrusion coating, sheet and thermoforming , wire and cable, rotational molding, and other extrusion) and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World)

The future of the masterbatch market looks promising with opportunities in packaging, building and construction, consumer goods, transportation, electrical and electronics, and fiber & textiles end use industries. The global masterbatch market is declined in 2020 due to the global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, the market will witness recovery in the year 2021, and it is expected to reach an estimated $12.0 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 4.7% from 2021 to 2026. The major drivers for growth in this market are increasing demand for light weight plastic as substitutes for various materials like metal, concrete, and steel in various end use industries.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the masterbatch industry, include growing use of silicone masterbatch in automotive PP/TPO compounds and increasing demand for biodegradable masterbatch. LyondellBasell, Cabot, PolyOne, Ampacet, PlastiBlends, Tosaf, Polyplast, Poddar Pigments, and Gabrie-Chenie are among the major masterbatch manufacturers.
