Compounds, additives & masterbatch

An essential link in the supply chain between plastic converters and the polymer producers is the production of compounds and masterbatch. The compounding and masterbatch industries are highly diverse and are difficult to segment because of overlapping definitions and the broad range of business models which are deployed. For instance, it is often difficult to understand the extent to which a compound or masterbatch is a product or a service. The subtleties and nuances of the compounding and masterbatch industries require in-depth expertise to navigate the issues that these industries address.
