Increasing demand for injection molded plastics in several ends use industries. Such as automotive, packaging, electronics & consumer goods, building & construction, medical disposal, and technological advancements. (Such as computer-aided engineering and automation in the injection molding process) This is augmenting the growth of the market. Furthermore, low labor costs, minimum waste production, faster production. And the ability to process multiple raw materials simultaneously is further boosting the market growth. However, volatility in crude oil prices and the high initial tooling cost of injection molding impede the overall market growth.
The polypropylene segment contributed to about 41% of the overall injection molding plastic market in 2014. Attributes such as heat and electrical resistance, quick setting. Chemical & abrasion resistance and high surface gloss have led to its sustained dominance in the injection mold plastic market. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is projected to be the fastest-growing segment at 6.8% CAGR, owing to its wider application in the automotive, building & construction, and consumer goods & electronics industries.
The packaging will remain the dominant market application during 2014-2020. This is primarily due to its increasing adoption in consumer goods, healthcare, and cosmetics products. The healthcare segment is the fastest-growing end-use market due to its increased usage in the production of tubes and housings for needles, pregnancy test devices, and surgical blades.
Key findings of the study:
Healthcare to be the fastest-growing end-use industry segment.
Packaging to remain the dominant application segment throughout the forecast period. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene segment to exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period.
Rising demand for packaging in automotive and consumer goods makes polypropylene the most lucrative segment, specifically due to its low cost. Easy to mold nature and heat resistance. North America and Europe are the dominant geographies, collectively held about 66% market share in 2014.
North America and Europe have been prominent consumers of injection molded plastics, largely due to high demand from the packaging and automotive industries. The Asia Pacific hosts one of the fastest-growing automotive, healthcare, consumer goods, and semiconductors industry and hence offer lucrative growth opportunities for injection molded plastics market in the region. Moreover, China, Japan, and India are leading markets in terms of consumption and revenues for injection molded plastics in the region.
The injection-molded plastics industry is fast-moving and continuous product improvement is most required to remain competitive. Continuous innovation in design, specificity and customization has led to the frequent launch of new and advanced products, resulting in the adoption of newer applications. Further, key players have been exploring collaborations and joint ventures as a means to leverage high-growth markets.
