China's Masterbatch Market is one of the world's fastest growing, most dynamic market. In the past 10 years thegrowth rate of more than 20%, and is expected to continue tomaintain rapid growth. A new report from AMI consulting company described the market leader in China, and the impact they may have on the global market.
The AMI report showed Cabot plastics company is the largestproduction, the company has already established a blackmasterbatch factory in Hongkong, and to the whole of Asiasupply. However, black is the production of household products, leading producers are Ngai Hing line, it is the mainproducer of Color Masterbatch, while the White Masterbatchproduction is very big. These products than blackmasterbatch can attract more premium. Ngai Hing Bank inChina has the most extensive network of factories, 7 factories. The main white masterbatch manufacturer isGuangdong AP Chemistry Based, mainly supply to the blow molding industry. Guangdong Heng chemical additivemasterbatch production.
Different from the plastic production, China's Masterbatch production is more concentrated in the hands of the leader,the top 50 companies listed in the report output occupies theoutput of 2005 year 3/4. In addition, China there are hundreds of companies producing masterbatch products, but it is obvious that most of them are very small, simple operation, of which 30 for the production of fiber industry.
It is also important to note that, China's plastics industry is to improve the supply structure and the more mature products and raw materials demand. These are affecting themasterbatch industry, making the company more ahead in technology, better product development. However, the application of local market various departments of thematerial are not the same, some continued high application of dry coating and mixture, some general application of masterbatch.
The use of powdered pigments is still dominant in manyprocessing methods, such as toy manufacturing and thequality and density is not important in other industries. There are many companies supply the pigment products from the processor directly to the molding or extrusion equipment forfeeding.
This method is used for cost reasons in China, the methodtends to local markets rather than export.
Another feature of China's Masterbatch Market is most factory (even those who are part of major international group)are related to the local market service. Logistical difficulties and local rules and regulations for the batch supply influenceChina not long distance. This also explains why some manufacturers to develop the factory network, rather than a factory to serve the whole market. The mainstream companyClariant, Ngai Hing line and PolyOne were adopted in thisway.
