Color Masterbatches Market

Global Market Study on Color Masterbatches: Europe to Dominate the Global Market in Terms of High Market Share


Color masterbatch is referred to as a concentrated blend of pigments or additives which is formed with the help of heating procedures by compressing or encapsulating the concentrate in a carrier resin. Color masterbatch is typically used to color plastics. Color masterbatches are also used in applications such as storage containers, roofing, cables, pipes, toys, electronics, cosmetic articles, seat belts, kitchenware and silage sheets.

Persistence Market Research has recently published a new research publication on color masterbatches market. This research study delivers value by providing insights and analytical forecasts pertaining to the market growth during the period 2017-2022. According to this comprehensive research report, the global color masterbatches market is currently witnessing steady growth and poised to register a CAGR of 5.1%, to reach a significant market share by the end of 2022.

color masterbatches market

This steady growth of color masterbatches market is influenced by several aspects. There are various benefits of color masterbatches, to name a few, good distribution and dispersion of color across any type of plastic thus eliminating defects due to uneven color distribution, they come in pellet form which simplifies their use, they are simple to handle, and provide better control on transparency and opacity of a colored product. Moreover, special color effects can be added which can distinguish between different products. Due to these advantages, they are widely used by polymer manufacturers.

Demand of color masterbatches is also driven by the requirement for enhanced performance from polymer material which require properties such as flame retardation, UV stabilization, optical brightness, surface resistivity, enhanced transparency, scratch resistance and prevention of yellowing (thermal or oxidative degradation).
