Masterbatches are manufactured by the combination of pigments and additives, and are used to impart color and other desired properties to plastics during a manufacturing process. Masterbatches are broadly classified into four categories - white, black, color and additive. In Europe, masterbatch consumption in packaging industry has increased significantly over the last five years due to rising popularity of small pack sizes, expanding sales and distribution network of plastic processors and plastic products, as well as growing flexible packaging market. Moreover, they are also being used in automotive industry during the manufacturing of light weight vehicles on account of increasing government regulations on rising CO? emission levels in the region. Moreover, leading food & beverage companies are constantly exploring new packaging materials for attracting more eyeballs, which is further fueling masterbatch demand in the region.
