Market Definition

Masterbatch is an additive made through heating procedures and utilized for enhancing the quality & performance of polymers. The application of these cost-effective additives is easy, dirt-free, & stable, which minimizes the safety risks associated with using powder pigments. The UAE is witnessing an extensive demand for masterbatches owing to the ever-increased production of plastics & consumer goods across the country.

Market Insights

The UAE Masterbatch Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 20.24% and 8% in terms of revenue and volume, respectively, during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. Most of the market expansion would be driven by the booming packaging, construction, automotive, textile, agriculture, & consumer goods industries in the country that massively utilize plastic polymers, which require masterbatches. The increasing number of manufacturing units of companies like Ashok Leyland, Hafilat industries, W Motors, & Zarooq Motors in the UAE is aiding in the expansion of the country's automotive sector and, consequently, positively influencing the demand for masterbatches.

In addition, due to rapidly increasing carbon emissions, more & more electric vehicles are being produced and sold in the UAE, i.e., leading to the growing utilization of plastics in order to make lightweight components like bumpers, dashboards, car batteries, headlamps, wires, cables, etc., which, in turn, is accelerating the demand for masterbatches in the automotive sector.
