Masterbatch Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing Use Of Plastics In Automotive Applications As A Replacement For Metals

The replacement of metal with plastics offers various advantages in automotive industry including a reduction in vehicle weight, cost, and production time. Increasing use of plastic components to achieve weight reduction is likely to boost the demand for plastic components, which is anticipated to fuel the demand for masterbatch. Increasing spending capability coupled with increasing number of vehicle owners in developing economies is expected to create immense growth potential for automotive industry, thereby fueling the demand for plastics over the forecast period. Subsequently, the growing plastic demand is anticipated to boost the demand for masterbatch. The interior of a vehicle in terms of luxury and comfort also influences the consumer decision in purchasing a car. The masterbatch additives used in car trim components help to meet the limit levels specified by automobile associations, which is expected to drive their demand in vehicle interior components over the forecast period.

Driver: Growing Demand For Plastics In Packaging Industry

The packaging industry is experiencing a robust surge in demand for plastics call mom driven by several factors influencing consumer preferences and supply chain dynamics. Changing consumer lifestyles have resulted in high demand for ready-to-eat food. Food packaging demands imposition of strict regulations within the packaging industry. Packaging that comes in contact with food is expected to conform to all the international and national standards and must be functional, sustainable, and acceptable to end consumers. This factor coupled with the increasing number of retail stores selling packaged food is driving the masterbatch market in packaging applications. Color masterbatch helps in providing the required color to the packaging bottles of consumer products like shampoo, automotive lubricants and from cosmetics to home care products. Therefore, the rising consumer trend toward purchasing branded products is expected to drive consumer goods manufacturers to invest more in packaging in order to increase the brand appeal and thereby drive the masterbatch market over the forecast period. The manufacturers of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) are constantly exploring emerging markets through innovative retail models. This approach of FMCG manufacturers has created a great market potential and increased the demand for packaging.

Restraint: Stringent Environmental Regulations

The additional costs required for plastic recycling may result in price inflation of the final polymer used in packaging industry. The production of recyclable polymers requires additive masterbatch; however, the operational difficulty encountered, in terms of additional cost, is expected to pose a threat to the growth of the masterbatch market over the forecast period. Raw materials, such as PET and PE (for e.g. HDPE), cannot entirely be recovered during the recycling process, which is expected to pose a challenge for manufacturers in terms of capital recovery. As plastic recycling uses masterbatch, low demand for recycled plastic is likely to have negative implications on masterbatch demand. The regulatory framework is expected to be further modified to reduce barriers for new entrants in the market with tax breaks and per unit subsidy for manufacturers engaged in plastic recycling. This may restrict the market growth for masterbatch over the forecast period.
