The black masterbatches market is projected to reach USD 3.0 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.4 % from USD 2.4 billion in 2021.
This growth is mainly supported by the increasing need for innovative and attractive plastic products from the packaging industry. Most of the polymer manufacturers have switched the processing method of plastics from compounding to masterbatch. This process is cost-effective and saves processing time as compared to compounded materials. American and European black masterbatch manufacturers are focusing on expanding their manufacturing facilities in emerging economies owing to cost-effective labor, low setup cost, tax benefits, and high demand for black masterbatch.
