Thermoplastic Masterbatch Global Market 2022

Thermoplastic Masterbatch Global Market 2022

Published: February 2022


For more than 30 years, AMI has been analysing and reporting on the trends in the market for masterbatch (thermoplastic concentrates).  Through a series of regularly updated regional reports and a global database of producers we have developed an unrivalled view of the demand for masterbatch and the key trends driving the market.

This is now the second time we have utilised this knowledge to compile an in-depth global overview to provide a current, comprehensive and authoritative analysis of the global thermoplastic masterbatch industry with forecasts through to 2026.

The global masterbatch industry continues to experience unprecedented challenges; from fluctuations in demand to raw material volatility and constant changes in customer service needs. Furthermore, the sector has been impacted by the pandemic, and the ongoing environmental scrutiny affecting the whole plastics industry. The result of this is an ever-present challenge to executive decision making and the management of participating companies.

The new market report provides tools to better understand the implications of recent developments and the impact they have had on the global masterbatch market and the direction the sector will take going forwards.
