The Europe Masterbatch Market was currently valued at 4 billion USD and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% in the forecast period 2020-2025.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Europe Masterbatch Market

COVID-19 has exposed severe challenges for the masterbatch market by impacting end-user applications. Major nations of Europe like Italy, Germany, etc., are affected due to pandemic. The Masterbatch market also suffered huge losses due to the halt in production and manufacturing activities across the continent. The automotive sector suffered the most and the demand for the same was at an all-time low. Eastern European countries such as Poland and Belarus which were expected to register high growth rates experienced a slowdown in the market demand thus, in turn, a slowdown in production. Experts believe that the recovery of the market is expected to start in late 2021 with an expected growth rate of 5% CAGR.

Europe Master batch Market Recent Developments in the Industry:

  • In August 2020, Avient announced that they are developing new dairy packaging additive to meet the Titanium Dioxide restrictions.
  • A.Schulman, Inc. is developing innovative products, which will enable it to stay competitive and cater to the specific needs of customers. The company aims to manufacture masterbatches along with engineered plastic compounds, color concentrates, and additives. A. Schulman has a worldwide presence with over 50 manufacturing plants.
  • In March’2019, Ampacet started a new production line situated in Belgium aiming to improve the overall consumer experience through their expansion.

Drivers and Restraints of Europe Master batch Market:

The use of plastics as a substitute for metals has been the driving force for the growth of the European Masterbatch market. The demand for high performing, advanced-materials is continuously growing and the Masterbatch market has been at the positive side of the growth. The demand for colored pigments has also increased across various sectors which furthers improves the growth opportunities for the Masterbatch color segment market. The market opportunities for bioplastic materials are continuously growing in the European region. An increase in investments towards research and development is also a key factor for the growing market in the European region.

The high cost and complexity associated with color masterbatches, the demand for more manufacturing capacity, large tools, long lead times, and other elements are foreseen to impede the growth of the European market over the outlook period.  In addition, the growing preference of industries for composites is also acting as threats to the European Masterbatch industry.

Europe Masterbatch Market has been divided into the below categories

On the basis of Type

  1. Color
  2. White
  3. Filler
  4. Additive

On the basis of Polymers

  1. PP
  2. LDPE
  3. HDPE
  4. PVC
  5. PUR
  6. PS

On the basis of Application

  1. Building and Construction
  2. Paper and Cardboards
  3. Consumer Goods
  4. Automotive
  5. Textile
  6. Household
  7. Personal Care

The personal care market has grown rapidly in the European region during the COVID-19 pandemic. The building and construction sector has flourished in these times and as a consequence, the masterbatch industry has also gained a lot.

The color segment is expected to lead the market during the period of 2020 to 2025. This is due to the fact that colored pigments are heavily used in the packaging, consumer goods, and construction sector.

Bioplastics are being increasingly being used in the pharmaceutical, automotive, and agricultural sectors, they require bio-additive masterbatches to provide durability and color. Thus, in the coming years, we can expect a high growth rate in this segment.

Europe Masterbatch Market Regional Analysis:

In Europe, Germany is expected to dominate the masterbatch market. It has become one of the production powerhouses of the world and is one of the strongest economies. Automotive sectors in the region are planning huge investments in the Masterbatch industry in the upcoming years which will increase its demand.

Europe is the second-largest market for the Masterbatch, behind the Asia Pacific region Purchasing power of consumers in Europe is significantly higher than majority of the other countries, therefore, more investments are being made.

Eastern European countries such as Poland and Belarus are expected to outperform the rest of the European nations in the upcoming years.

There are several players that are asserting their dominance in the European Masterbatch Market, some of the big names are:

  1. Ampacet Corporation
  2. A Schulman Inc.
