Market Definition

Global injection molded plastics market is estimated to reach $477.3 Billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 5.3% from 2019 to 2025. Injection molding is a common process adapt in industries for the manufacturing of fabrication of plastic parts. The injection molding process requires the injection molding machine, raw material as plastic, and mold. The plastic is melted in an injection molding machine and then injected into the mold and which gets solidified. The processing time required for injection molding is approx. between 2 seconds and 2 minutes. The assembly for the injection molding machine consists of an injection unit, power supply, clamping unit, and mold assembly to perform different stages of the process cycle. The injection-molded plastic market is poised to grow strong over the forecast period owing to technological advancements in the injection molding process with the incorporation of robotics to perform different operations such as finishing and assembling in injection molded parts and loading components into the injection molding.

Industry Forces

Rising packaging demand from the food industry, gauge bags, & bin liners, rising demand for raw material HDPE in shipping containers, housewares, and industry pails applications are the major driving factors of the market. In addition, low cost incurred by labor and bulk production is another factor boosting the market growth. On the other hand, injection molded plastics are used with automated process thereby reducing manufacturing cost which is also projected to spur the growth of the injection-molded plastic market. Moreover, modern innovative techniques to minimize the rate of faulty products manufactured have enhanced the injection-molded technology in mass production. This factor is also likely to contribute to significant market growth. However, fluctuations in raw material prices and environmental concerns regarding their disposal, and surge in the initial cost of tooling might hamper the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements leading to the application of robotics in injection molding and plastics manufactured from wood pulp as a renewable resource would provide lucrative opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Market Segmentation

The global injection molded plastics market is classified based on raw material type and application. Raw material type is further segmented into polypropylene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystyrene, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and others. Based on raw material, polypropylene is the most lucrative segment of the global injection molded plastic market exhibiting the highest potential due to rising consumption across automotive components, household goods, and packaging applications. Rising penetration of polypropylene finished product in electrical contacts & battery housings, followed by food packaging is also expected to augment the market growth over the forecast period. Polypropylene components are widely used in food packaging with properties to prevent corrosion and electrical insulation properties. Further, on account of the aforesaid details, the segment has the potential to make the biggest impact in the market. By application, the market is divided into the automobile, consumer goods & electronics, packaging, building & construction, and healthcare.
