Liquid masterbatches are a mixture of additives or pigments which are utilized for the coloring or imparting other desirable properties to polymers. Such desirable properties may include UV stabilizing, antistatic, flame retardation and antilocking properties. Various technologies used for manufacturing of polymers can be used by masterbatches like blow, spinning, injection molding and others. The market for liquid masterbatches is experiencing steady growth due to a number of factors that include the growing end user markets like automobile, healthcare and packaging. In addition, there is a heightened demand of plastics from the packaging of luxury goods and the construction industry which consequently is boosting the market for liquid masterbatches. Moreover, there is an augmented demand for light weight vehicles so that the greenhouse effect can be checked and to reduce the emissions coming out from vehicles. To achieve this, the content of plastic in the vehicles is increased, thereby reducing their weight and the carbon emissions. Hence, metal parts in vehicles are being replaced by plastics and this presents a great opportunity for the liquid masterbatches market. However, the rising prices of oil and strict environmental regulations concerning with non-biodegradable plastics are hampering the growth of the plastic industries which consequently is having a negative impact on the market for liquid masterbatches.
