The Middle East and Africa Masterbatch Market are likely to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the outlook period. The color segment is expected to be valued at around 500 Million USD by 2025.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Middle East and African Masterbatch Market:

COVID-19 has exposed severe challenges for the masterbatch market in the MEA. Major economies of the Middle East and Africa are affected due to pandemic despite this region being the least affected by the pandemic. The Masterbatch market also suffered huge losses due to the halt in production and manufacturing activities across the continent. On top of this, the foreign investments in African regions were halted and this hindered the growth of the Masterbatch industry. Experts believe that the recovery of the market is expected to start from late 2021 with an expected growth rate of 7% CAGR.

Recent Developments in the Middle East and Africa Masterbatch Market Industry:

  • In 2020, Israeli based company Tosaf opened its first operation plant in a North American country, expanding its business outside the middle east region.
  • In January 2020, Cabot International bought a Chinese nanotube supplier in a deal worth 115 million USD. Shenzen Sanshun Nano New Materials was the leading carbon nanotube producer in China.
  • 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 the MEA Masterbatch Market

The use of plastics as a replacement for metals has been the driving aspect in the growth of the MEA 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 call for colored pigments has also increased across various sectors that further improves the growth opportunities for the masterbatch color segment market. The growth of the construction sector in the Middle East countries such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia and rapid urbanization in the African region has spiked the demand for composite materials and colored pigments. This is one of the major driving factors for the Masterbatch industry in the Middle East and African region.

However, there are some limitations in the growth of the MEA masterbatch market, such as their high cost and complexity of color masterbatches, along with the demand for large types of machinery, huge production space, long lead times, and others. The African region sees a very low spending power of the consumers and thus bio-plastics are not so popular in these regions due to their high costs. On the other hand, Middle East countries have socio-economic problems that result in civil war and regions plagued by terrorism which drains a lot of the country’s resources preventing investments in other sectors.

The Black Masterbatch market is expected to acquire the majority of the market share accounting for 27% of the total market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% in the forecasted period.

The building and construction sector has grown rapidly in the Middle East and African region. The personal care sector has flourished in these times and as a consequence, the masterbatch industry has also gained a lot.

The color segment is also expected to grow during the outlook 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.
