The global black masterbatch market was valued at USD 2,135.9 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 3,263.1 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 5.14%.
Black masterbatch is the is a combination of black carbon pigment, incorporated with virgin resin and specific additives in a granular form. These are made of high carbon black compounds with dispersed in thermoplastic resin. Styrenics, polyolefins, and engineering resins are commonly used for black masterbatch manufacturing process. Black masterbatches are commonly used in polymer processing to incorporate color pigments or additives and antimicrobials into the polymer resin or other liquid. A masterbatch is a concentrated mixture of an additive encapsulated in a carrier material, such as PE or PP.
The use of black masterbatch in various end-use industries is projected to boost the demand during the forecast period. It is an intermediate and raw material in manufacturing plastic, automotive, construction, and others. Its application as a raw material in various industries such as packaging, building & construction, automotive, and others is a major driver of the global black masterbatch market. The construction industry uses applications such as roofing composite fabrics, geotextile, plumbing, electrical fittings & other critical applications. Due to its additional properties such as UV, thermal & electric resistance, and low cost, black masterbatch has various applications in other industries
COVID-19 Impact on the Black masterbatch Market:
COVID-19 has affected various markets severely while some markets got a boom due to its occurrence. Even during the pandemic, the whole world was using fuel as before. There was a moderate effect of the outbreak of a deadly virus and the imposition of a complete lockdown around the globe. Moreover, the value of black masterbatch depends on the production of crude oil and natural gas. Uses of natural gas and products of crude oil do not affect the black masterbatch market directly as the black masterbatch serve their purpose during the process of production. And demand for fuel is running high in the world. The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the production of global black masterbatch market and exposed various challenges for oil & gas industry. The production of black masterbatch declined amidst the COVID-19 pandemic as the market players had to shut production facilities or operate the facilities below the optimal production capacities to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. However, Tier-1 market players have continued operations at their production facilities.
Since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been massive pressure on the chemical distribution supply chain. Ports across several countries suffer from intense congestion, causing cargo ships to encounter substantial delays in unloading cargo and, finally, supplying products within a certain period. Black masterbatch occupies a small but lucrative niche of the global chemical industry, a closely interlinked market that depends on supply dependability.
