Masterbatch Markets in Asia

Masterbatch Markets in Asia

Date of publication: July 2017

Continuing AMI’s ongoing programme of research into global masterbatch markets, this report updates developments in this important and fast changing region. The strong growth in the region is forecast to continue although the prospects for individual countries display very differing trends (from significant slow down to very strong growth). This report looks in detail at recent trends within China and the rest of Asia, identifying masterbatch usage by the plastics processing industry and assesses the supply situation in terms of local production and trade.

Although the masterbatch industry is one of the great success stories of the plastics industry over the last 30 years, the next ten years also promise to provide significant change in both the market dynamics and the industry structure. The plastics industry will see a prolonged consolidation of the industry structure in both moulding and extrusion areas, customer industries are also adjusting to global dimensions in many of their markets. These challenges will also confront the masterbatch industry with companies facing the need to adopt to survive. It is likely that a more streamlined industry structure will emerge with some players falling by the wayside. The new study gives you the tools to fully understand and exploit the opportunities in the market for your company’s profitable expansion.

This study is part of AMI’s ongoing evaluation of international markets for thermoplastic compounds and concentrates (masterbatches).  It provides a current, comprehensive and authoritative analysis of this large, growing market.
