Benefits of Black Masterbatch Driving its Demand

Black masterbatches are granular form of carbon black pigments incorporated on virgin resin. Black masterbatches provide multiple benefits over other coloring pigments. Unline other pigments, black masterbatches are in granular form which provide great dispersion. Black masterbatches disperse more evenly on the surface of products as they consist of virgin resins unlike powdered color pigments. This has increased their demand in the plastic manufacturing industry. Moreover, black masterbatches can also be incorporated with specialty additives that improve their properties including UV resistance, abrasion resistance, and overall mechanical properties. Thus, the immense benefits of black masterbatches are driving their demand across various industry verticals such as automotive, geomembrane, and plastic & polymer.

Within the report, the market is segmented into end-use industry and geography. By end-use industry, the market is segmented into automotive, packaging, electrical & electronics, consumer goods, agriculture, and others. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Rising demand for black masterbatches from various end-use industries

Black masterbatches are widely used in the automotive industry as a coloring compound for exterior applications such as bumpers, tires, vehicle bodies, window sealing profiles, headlamp lenses, and bodyside protection strips. Black masterbatch provide high-level color permeance and preserve the color for a longer period. With the rising use of engineering and high-performance plastic in the automotive industry to reduce the overall weight of the automobile and reduce carbon emission, the demand for black masterbatches from the automotive industry has increased significantly. This factor is driving the market growth. Black masterbatches are also widely used to manufacture packaging films and materials. Garbage bags, shopping bags, and other packaging materials are colored using black master batches as they disperse evenly on the surface. Further, black masterbatches are also used to make pipes, tubing, conduits, and deck railings. There is a rising demand for black masterbatches from various end-use industries owing to their diverse applications. This factor is propelling the growth of black masterbatch market over the forecast period.

Surging popularity of recycled black masterbatches

Over the past few years, there is a rise in sustainability concerns owing to climate change, increased environmental pollution, high carbon dioxide emissions, and rise in industrial waste. The rising sustainability awareness has compelled manufacturers to develop black masterbatches with 100% recycled content. They are made with 100% recycled carbon black from post-consumer tires and recycled polyethylene resins. Such products are expected to gain significant momentum in the coming years which will drive the market growth.
