The masterbatch market is estimated to be worth USD 8.35 Billion in 2014 and is projected to reach USD 12.61 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 7.0% between 2015 and 2020. In this study, 2013 has been considered as the historical year, 2014 as the base year and 2015 to 2020 as forecast period for estimating market size of masterbatch. The global masterbatch market has been segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. Color is expected to play a key role in fueling the growth of the overall masterbatch market owing to its unique properties, which makes them suitable for use in various industrial applications. Color masterbatch is mainly driven by the need of end-use industries to differentiate their products in the market. These end-use industries rely heavily on color for their marketing and branding strategies. Many products and brands are recognized based on their color and logos.

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for each product type (white, black, color, additives, and filler), for various regions (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and South America), and countries have been identified using secondary and primary research. The overall masterbatch market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual markets. Regional level masterbatch market sizes have been further segmented on the basis of application, using percentage split gathered during the research. For future growth (CAGRs) trends of the masterbatch, application industry packaging, building & construction, consumer goods, automotive, textiles, and others have been analyzed.Findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives.

The major masterbatch market players include A. Schulman (U.S.), Cabot Corporation (U.S.), Clariant AG (Switzerland), Polyone Corporation (U.S.), Plastika Kritis S.A. (Greece), Ampacet Corporation (U.S.), and others.

This study answers several questions for the stakeholders, primarily which market segments to focus in the next two to five years for prioritizing the efforts and investments. The target audiences for the masterbatch market report are as follows:

- Masterbatch manufacturers
- Masterbatch suppliers
- Masterbatch formulators
- Raw material suppliers
