If you do not know masterbatches, it does not matter as masterbatches are primarily aimed at adding color and many desired qualities to the plastic material like plastic packing materials. There is no doubt that color can range from black, white, and red to transparent colors and shades. Then, the heat resistance, UV protection, and other characteristics to the final plastic products like heat resistant plastic film are offered by the use of appropriate masterbatch such as white plastic masterbatch.
In order to give any desired color to the plastic products, pigments or additives are necessary. These functional additive masterbatches can provide pigments which can be black, grey, and white. The blending of these pigments can display different colors. The masterbatch can be of plastic or rubber.
To be basic, there are chiefly two types of masterbatch. The color masterbatch and additive masterbatch. The color masterbatch gives color to the plastic product such as PET white masterbatch. The additive masterbatch can add other merits like resistance or decide the texture of the plastic. Additive masterbatch can make the plastic anti-static, anti-fouling, and lubricating just like the anti-static masterbatch. Apart from the basic colors, the manufacturers should also produce products with a lot of shades and special effects which can influence the plastic. This special effect can be marble, pearl, metallic, sparkle, granite, and phosphorescent. The granular form of masterbatch can be in pellets and mini pellets. The rough cut form should be in shreds and tiny chucks.
It is predicted that the masterbatch market will grow up to 12 billion in the next 4 years. The global masterbatch market is roughly segmented on the basis of color, region, and application. The color component of the masterbatches like the aging-resistant masterbatch is deemed to play a major part in boosting the growth of the market since the color of the masterbatch has many distinct and unique features. The properties of the color will help a plastic material to find a role in various applications and industries. Nearly all final products have got to rely on color for their marketing strategy. The brand of one firm is differentiated from another by the use of specific colors in the logo and company branding.
Generally speaking, the growth of the masterbatch market will happen in the major developing countries and countries in South East Asia. Without any doubt, the growth of the economy in these countries will expand the plastic industry. This expansion in the plastic industry will proliferate the demand for masterbatches such as colorful plastic functional masterbatches. What’s more, the change in the manufacturing industry, where plastic is replacing the use of steel is a major driver of the demand for plastic as raw material.
As the consumers goods are made with different colors and properties, the demand for masterbatches like color granule masterbatch is bound to increase because the consumers’ goods industry will continue to grow to cater to the needs of a growing population in developing countries. Therefore, the big shift towards the use of plastic in the consumer industry will greatly enhance the demand for color pigments such as masterbatches.
