Rapid industrialization and infrastructure development in developing economies is one of the significant factors driving the growth of the global masterbatches market

Asia Pacific was the leading region, and accounted for over 45% of the global demand of plastics in 2014. Rapid industrialization and a growing population have contributed to the economic growth in China and India. With the increasing workforce and subsequent industrial infrastructure development in the region, many industries, such as automotive, construction, electrical and electronics, and consumer appliances, have witnessed a rapid growth of masterbatches in various applications. Latin America is expected to witness a significantly high growth rate in terms of consumption of plastics over the forecast period due to its increased usage in construction in Mexico and Brazil to meet industrial as well as public infrastructure needs. The rapidly evolving transportation sector and rising automotive production in the region are expected to further complement the Latin American masterbatches market over the forecast period.

The demand for plastics and masterbatches is growing rapidly in the construction sector, in insulation materials, floorings, performance safety windows, storage tanks, pipes, doors, and cables. Growing commercial and residential projects in developing economies are driving infrastructural development. Moreover, rising consumer awareness about attractive interiors is driving the demand for masterbatch material types. The thriving construction industry is likely to balance the masterbatches market in the forecast period. This industry would create a significant demand in terms of growing end use application in the market. The growing use and consumption of PVC and CPVC in numerous products, such as wires and cables, pipes, wood PVC composites, water proofing membranes, food, and medicinal packaging, results in the growth of the global masterbatches market.

Packaging segment by application is expected to grab more than 30% revenue share in 2017

Among all the application type, packaging is estimated to account for just under 34% value share in the global masterbatches market followed by consumer products with about 22% value share by 2025. Transportation is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period to account for 8.7% value share by 2025.
