The masterbatch market continues to be incredibly dynamic, maintaining growth throughout the pandemic in all major global regions, and outperforming the growth of both GDP and the underlying polymer demand. It is now a market worth more than US$ 30 billion. The sector is expected to go from strength to strength over the next five years, with the average annual growth rate exceeding 5%. Unsurprisingly, the fastest double digit growth will be present in the developing global regions, whereas more moderate growth rates will be experienced in the well-established markets of Europe, North America and North East Asia.
