DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 10, 2018--The "Global Additive Masterbatch Market 2018-2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The analysts forecast the global barley market to grow at a CAGR of 6.39% during the period 2018-2022.

Masterbatch is an additive compound predominantly used in plastic manufacturing. It generally exists in either solid or liquid form. The product comprises a carrier material with a high concentration of additives and pigments submerged into it. The additive master batch is generally used to enhance the performance and functional properties of plastic products. It also helps in producing high strength and durable plastic products.

The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the growing demand for biodegradable resins. Bio-based resins and renewable raw materials have emerged as an alternative to conventional raw materials, particularly, in the emerging economies with the growing need for waste management.

One of the major drivers for this market is the high demand from the automotive industry. With growing use of additive masterbatches in plastic products used in modern automobiles such as handles, connectors, safety airbags, switches, armrests and others, the demand for additive masterbatches is expected to increase considerably in the forthcoming years.

The report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is the volatility in raw material prices. Since the carrier compounds and resins in masterbatches are often derived from petroleum derivatives and the prices of these materials vary in tandem with natural gas and crude oil prices, the demand for additive masterbatch is likely to fluctuate during the next few years.
