Color Masterbatch Market by Type (Standard Color, Tailor-made Color, and Specialty Color), Carrier Resin (PE, PP, PS, and Others), End-use Industry (Packaging, Building & Construction, Consumer Goods, Automotive, Agriculture, and Others) - Global Forecast

Color Masterbatch Market by Type (Standard Color, Tailor-made Color, and Specialty Color), Carrier Resin (PE, PP, PS, and Others), End-use Industry (Packaging, Building & Construction, Consumer Goods, Automotive, Agriculture, and Others) - Global Forecast to 2021

The market size of color masterbatch is expected to reach USD 4.75 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 5.6% between 2016 and 2021. The growth of the color masterbatch market is primarily triggered by the rising demand from the packaging segment. Growth of the masterbatch market can be directly attributed to the increasing use of plastics in several applications. India and China are noteworthy markets owing to the mass exodus of manufacturing activities to these low-cost countries in the region.

“Standard color masterbatch expected to dominate the market”
Standard color accounts for a major share of the color masterbatch market, as it is used to process polymers. They are used in a wide range of applications due to its mechanical, heat resistance, and weather resistance properties. Some of the applications of standard color masterbatch are packaging sheets & films, plastic bottles & containers, and cables & wire. The specialty color masterbatch is used for high-visibility applications.

“Asia-Pacific projected to be fastest-growing market during the forecast period”
Asia-Pacific is the largest and fastest-growing market of color masterbatch, in terms of volume. The growing packaging industry coupled with the increased demand from the retail industry drives the market of color masterbatch in the region. End-use industries are witnessing a high growth in developing nations such as India, Indonesia, and Brazil due to the growing economies.
