Europe Predicted to Take the Lead in Solid Masterbatches Market
On the basis of geography, Europe is leading in the solid masterbatches market on account of the rising demand for contamination free packaging for pharmaceutical products. During the forecast period from 2017 to 2022, Europe is anticipated to exhibit a 5% CAGR. North America is another region which is anticipated to show a considerable rise in the demand for solid masterbatches. In 2017, the North America solid masterbatches market was worth US$4.9 bn. In the years to come, on account of the thriving construction and automotive sectors, Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to provide immense growth opportunities for solid masterbatches.
Thriving Automotive Sector behind High Demand for Solid Masterbatches
As per the lead author of this report, the growth in the automotive sector is the principal reason behind the growth of the global solid masterbatches market. Solid masterbatches are used for the production of plastic products which are required for seat cushions, safety airbags, bumpers, radiator shrouds, filler tubes, clips, and connectors all of which are important components of automobile. The plastic made by solid masterbatches increases the fuel efficiency, safety level, and cost efficiency of automobiles and thus the demand is anticipated to continue to increase from the automotive industry. The groqing preference for biodegradable resins will also work in favour for the solid masterbatches market. On the other hand, volatility in the pricing of raw materials will impact the market negatively.
