Impact of COVID-19 on masterbatch market

The demand of these masterbatches were impacted due to outbreak of COVID-19, globally. In the beginning of 2020, many countries witnessed the COVID-19 and its adverse impact on human as well as industrial operations. The production in different end-use industries were temporarily stopped and resulted in decline of masterbatch demand in their respective applications. Color masterbatch are prominently used to impart different colors in packaging materials, automotive components, consumer goods and so on. Similarly, other type of masterbatch witnessed the downfall due to slowdown in demand of finished products. However, the market is expected to recover from 2021 onwards with industries resuming their operations with full capacity and generating the demand for masterbatch for numerous applications.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Replacement of metals with plastics in automotive applications

Plastics provide superior technical  properties than those of metals. Engineering plastics are widely used in the automotive application for various components such as steering wheel, airbags, seatbelts, bumpers, and dashboards. The  reduction in the weight of vehicles will increase the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.  In addition, plastics offer better design, safety, and environmental sustainability than those of metals. Automotive and airplane manufacturers utilize lightweight plastics such as PP and PC for windows, hood, and interior applications.
Furthermore, increasing stringent regulations for reducing vehicular emissions are currently propelling the use of lightweight materials in vehicles. The increase in consumption of plastics in automotive applications will drive  the growth of the masterbatch market. Masterbatch, especially color and additive, is widely used in coloring automotive plastics for use in the interior and exterior components of vehicles. Hence, companies produce customized masterbatch for their vehicles.

Restraints: Availability of low quality and cheaper products

Cheap product offerings from emerging countries, especially China, act as a restraint for the growth of the masterbatch market. Although high competition in the market restricts the entry of new entrants, it is possible for manufacturers of low-quality masterbatch to challenge these barriers. The overall masterbatch market is highly unorganized, which makes it difficult for market players to cater to the growing domestic demand. Emerging countries such as India and Indonesia have several small plastic processing players that manufacture plastic products at a lower cost to tap the local market. These players use low-quality masterbatch to produce plastic products at lower costs. These masterbatch provides uneven mixing in the plastic mixture giving it a poor look or uneven grade.

Opportunities:Growing demand for biodegradable masterbatch

Biodegradable masterbatch is widely increasing in daily consumer good applications, especially in food packaging industry. Bio-based resins which have the base material as soybean, wood pulp, sugarcane, coffee, castor, plant seeds and corn are used in additive masterbatch in packaging segment. The waste management of the petroleum based carrier polymers in conventional masterbatch are a major challenge. It takes several hundred years for conventional plastics to degrade. The food plastics should use masterbatch which are US FDA compliant. The stringent regulations  and demand from the Europe and North America will be an opportunity for the masterbatch market in the packaging industry.

Challenges: Non-biodegradability of plastics

Masterbatch that is currently used in recycled plastics is harmful to the environment, as they are mixed with certain additives such as stabilizers, flame retardants, and coloring agents. Recycled plastics are non-biodegradable, imposing a challenge on the manufacturers of plastic products. Moreover, there are certain regulations related to the use of plastics. For instance, Europe has already imposed a ban on single-use of plastics due to wastes and pollution occurring due to plastic recycling. This will impact the use of plastics in high growth applications such as packaging.

Additive  masterbatch is the second largest type for masterbatch in 2019

 Additive masterbatch is used to improve the property of polymer to offer better-finished products. Additive masterbatch is segmented into seven sub types, namely, antimicrobial, antioxidant, flame retardant, UV stabilizers, foaming agents, optical brightener, and nucleating agent. Antimicrobial additive masterbatch restrains the growth of microorganisms and enhances freshness & hygiene in the plastic products. Antioxidant additive masterbatch prevents thermal degradation and oxidation at high temperature.It has a wide range of applications such as pipes, BOPP films, tapes, cables, geotextiles, injection & blow molded parts, and rotomolded tanks. Flame retardant additive in plastics helps delaying the ignition time. It is used in end-use industries, namely, building & construction, agriculture, automotive, and packaging. UV stabilizer-based masterbatch is formulated with polymers, such as LDPE, LLDPE, and HDPE, to provide high-quality products. It is used to protect the end-use products from discoloration, chalking, and degradation.  Foaming agent masterbatch is also called as blowing agent masterbatch. It is used to increase the volume and reduce the weight of plastic. Optical brightener masterbatch is used to impart brightness in various plastic products. And nucleating agent increases transparency, reduces the cycle time of the molding process, and improves the dimensional stability of end-use products
APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing additive masterbatch market during the forecast period. The emerging countries of APAC, such as China, India, and Indonesia, have a high consumption of plastics, since the last five years, which increases the demand for additive masterbatch. Presence of emerging industries in India and China is expected to generate high demand of masterbatch owing to increasing construction activities, huge population base creating demand for consumer goods.

PP  is estimated to be the largest polymer in masterbatch  market between 2020 and 2025.

PP is a thermoplastic polymer having lower density and higher softening point as compared to PE. PP is used in rigid packaging, which includes caps & closure of PET bottles and thin-walled containers of yogurt. It is also used in automotive, flexible packaging, consumer products, fibers, BOPP film, carpets, and reusable products such as containers, papers, laboratory equipment, furniture, and medical instrument.

PP-based masterbatch offers greater efficiency, smoothness, and dispersion ability to the applications of plastic goods. The increasing consumption of PP in the packaging, textile, and building & construction industries is attributed to its developments in APAC. The growth in the use of PP masterbatch is mainly attributed to its demand in the growing end-use industries of APAC.

Packaging is projected to account for the largest market share of the masterbatch market between 2020 and 2025.

Packaging is widely for the protection and transportation of goods utilized at the retail, industrial, and institutional levels. The availability of a wide variety of plastics and their adherence to regulatory standards make them the most extensively used material for packaging. Plastics can be modified in various shapes. It also provide better aesthetic appeal to the packaging, as they provide the required color, shape, size, utility, printing, weight, and protection. Growth in the use of plastics in the packaging industry is driving the demand for masterbatch. The growing importance of color in marketing and branding activities is further fueling the growth of the masterbatch market. Packaging is of two kinds the rigid packaging and the flexible packaging. The flexible packaging will take a greater market share for its flexible property and its nature to retain moisture and fragrance. Flexible packaging is mostly used for frozen food, beverage, pharmaceutical products, dairy products, shopping bags, and confectionary packaging.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest masterbatch market during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.

APAC is the largest consumer of masterbatches in the automotive application and is expected to dominate during the forecast period. The increasing automobile production facilities in the region and shift of European automobile manufacturers to low-cost markets of Asia are expected to support the growth of the masterbatches market in automotive application. APAC ranked first in terms of vehicle production, thus contributing to the increased demand for masterbatch in the automotive sector.
