The future development direction of Masterbatch
Masterbatch is 60s of the 20th century, the development of a plastic, fiber coloring of new products, it is the pigment super constant uniform load attached to the resin and the prepared polymer complexes, known in the US for pigment concentrates or pigment preparation. Masterbatch mainly consists of colorant, carrier, dispersant three part. According to differentiate the use of masterbatch, at present our country can color masterbatch manufacturer of plastic injection molding, blowing masterbatch and fiber masterbatch, masterbatch and other categories.
Enterprise of China 330 production masterbatch, which grade plastic Masterbatch Factory has reached 300, fiber masterbatch plant is 30. The masterbatch production plant mainly distributed in Fujian, Guangdong, Shandong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Liaoning, Tianjin, Beijing, Hebei and other provinces and cities. Annual production capacity of color masterbatch in China in more than 1000 tons of companies have nearly 50, China Color Masterbatch production capacity of 30 million tons per year, demand of colour masterbatch in China in 2001 not to 12 million tons. Production capacity is serious and superfluous, cause domestic masterbatch industry widespread underemployment, in addition to excessive growth of production of new devices, products lack of orders and other factors; one of the most important factors is domestic masterbatch single product structure, breed is not whole, the universal products accounted for a large proportion, and high concentration and super high concentration, multifunctional colored masterbatch and fine denier fiber masterbatch accounted for less proportion. In contrast, color masterbatch technology level is higher, pigment, dispersing agent and other raw materials varieties complete, has formed a series of specialization and product structure.
According to the relevant information was informed that other countries in the region of masterbatch annual demand growth rate of about 7% - 9%, our country of masterbatch annual demand growth rate is about 20%. It is expected that the 2002 Chinese demand will reach 15 million tons, demand in 2005 will reach 22.8 million tons. China will become the color masterbatch demand growth the fastest market. Especially color and add masterbatch, China must rely on imports. China has become the largest market in Asia masterbatch production and consuming countries.
In the development of varieties, color masterbatch in China manufacturers have developed color masterbatch, film masterbatch, masterbatch for wire and cable, polyolefin masterbatch, PVC masterbatch, plastic injection products masterbatch. Relevant experts believe that the future will be towards the functional masterbatch, color high content and high technology content development direction. Color masterbatch in China production enterprises should improve the technological content of products, the masterbatch products to develop in the direction of high quality, as soon as possible to develop new products, broaden the application areas of masterbatch products, the multifunctional and high technical content masterbatch products fully meet the market needs, meet the needs of all downstream users, so that we can in the competition invincible.
