Country-wise, China is the top consumer of masterbatch products globally, and is also the largest market for masterbatch products registering a CAGR higher than the global average till 2019. The U.S. is the second-largest masterbatch consumer in the world. Diverse end-use markets range from automobile, construction, package, consumer goods, wire & cable, and electronic appliances among others. Growing GDP, rapid pace of industrialization, ballooning production and industrial bases, increased output of plastic components, consumer goods and packaging products and continuing penetration of masterbatch vis-à-vis competing coloring methods remain key growth driving forces in the post-recession period. Future growth in the international market hinges heavily onto developing economies in Asia-Pacific, South America, and Eastern Europe. China and India, especially, stand out as noteworthy markets, given the mass exodus of production activities (automotive & industrial) from developing countries to low-cost Asian countries. The ensuing increase in foreign investments and rise in the number of new manufacturing establishments will witness Asia-Pacific emerge into a prime driver of growth.
