Thermoplastic Masterbatches in Latin America

Thermoplastic Masterbatches in Latin America

Published: April 2018


Since our last report, the region has been overtaken by many significant events that have substantially impacted the size, structure and growth prospects for the region.  Indeed, the market continues to be volatile with some markets growing strongly while others have struggled with a combination of low economic growth and political instability. However, the basic characteristic of the market of being a young and high potential region for plastics growth remains. Issues of country growth, maturity in some markets and rapid growth in other segments has been thoroughly investigated in the new report. Also of major consideration was the rapidly changing structure of the local industry as new suppliers emerge and external investments by global players increases.

One clear fact of the last ten years is that each individual country market has reacted in differing ways, and it is a surprise to some, that the overall Latin American market has in fact continued to grow in the period to 2017.

In our new study, we provide new information, along with much greater depth on all key aspects of market supply and demand situation.

The main focus of the report will be the four major categories of masterbatch:

  • Black
  • White
  • Colour
  • Additives

The study will segment each category of masterbatch in great detail by the sub-categories: film, blow moulding, fibre, injection moulding, pipe, wire and cable, sheet, rotomoulding, monofilament/tape, extrusion coating, and others.

Thermoplastic resin

  • HDPE                              
  • LDPE/LLDPE                      
  • Polypropylene                 
  • PVC           
  • Polystyrene
  • ABS/SAN          
  • PET            
  • Others

The study will also include detailed profiles of over 25 leading manufacturers of masterbatch in the region. 

Reporting basis

The study will provide data for the following years: past 2013, present 2017 and future 2022.

On an individual country or regional basis, the study will detail the market for each masterbatch type within the following Latin American countries/areas:

  • Brazil
  • Argentina
  • Chile
  • Venezuela
  • Columbia
  • Peru
  • Other Latin American Countries
  • Other near markets (including Caribbean)

The report is supplied as a downloadable PDF with an enterprise-wide license agreement. One printed hard copy of the report is also provided and one review meeting to discuss the report’s contents.
