Looking to buy the report?

The North American plastic color concentrates market is expected to witness a CAGR of approximately 6% during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023, majorly driven by the increasing demand for plastic from the building & construction industry. The rising usage in the consumer goods sector such as electronics goods, and furniture is also likely to stimulate the market growth.

Demand from Building & Construction Industry Driving the Market

The commercial construction in the United States has been picking up pace in the form of offices, malls, restaurants, etc. Residential and non-residential construction increased significantly in 2017 and is likely to grow in 2018. The residential construction in 2016 and 2017 has increased year-on-year by 10.52% and 10.58%, respectively. The major growth in the commercial construction was witnessed in healthcare, commercial, and office buildings. This is likely to drive the plastic color concentrates market in North America during the forecast period, as they are widely used in construction boards and coverings.

Liquid Color Concentrates Expected to Witness Highest Growth

The solid color concentrates segment is leading the color concentrates market, owing to its low price, less cost of installation, ease of transportation and storage, reduced waste, etc. The liquid color concentrates segment is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period. The high growth can be attributed to the rapid color development, reduced energy consumption in their manufacturing, increased color consistency, and low material costs.

Plastic Products Contributing to Huge Demand in the United States

In terms of consumption, in 2017, the United States accounted for the largest market share in the North American region. Master batches are widely used to manufacture various plastic products, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, polyvinylchloride (PVC) products, and several others. The demand for PVC products in the United States is consistently increasing, owing to the recovery of the construction industry.  PVC manufacturers have also benefitted from the recent drop in natural gas prices, owing to the shale gas boom in the country. On the other hand, PET bottles are exhibiting significant growth in demand in applications such as packaging. Overall, the plastic color concentrates are expected to have a moderate growth in the United States during the forecast period.
