Injection molding is the manufacturing process for the fabrication of plastics. A wide variety of plastics products are produced with the help of injection molding, which varies with size, application, and complexity. In the injection molding process, plastic is melted in the injection molding machine and further injected into the mold, where it solidifies into the final part after cooling. The injection molding process is mostly used to produce thin-walled plastic parts for various end-use industries.

Injection-molded plastics parts are made up of various plastic resins such as polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polystyrene (PS), and others depending upon their applications, physical properties, cost-effectiveness, and environmental impact. Some of the major applications of injection molded plastics are automotive, packaging, building & construction, electrical & electronics, medical, and others.

Injection-molded plastics are majorly used in the packaging industry for making containers, food packaging, bottles for cosmetics and pharmaceutical products, and different types of closures. In 2018, packaging accounted for over 35.41% of the share in the injection molded plastics market. Plastic is also an ideal material for electronics products as it can be conducive as well as non-conductive plastic, UV resistance, rigid and flexible, and also available in various colors. Additionally, injection-molded plastics also have considerable demand in applications such as LEDs and assemblies, inkjet printers, electric tools housing, computer boards and housing, switches, and many others.

MARKET DRIVERS

Growing Demand from Packaging Applications Likely to Drive the Market
Injection-molded plastics are extensively used in the packaging applications, especially in food packaging, as they do not react with food and keep it safe. The most common applications are caps, closures, containers, bottles, and many more. Injection-molded plastics containers packaging is clear and leak-resistant and thus keeps food fresh for a long time. These plastics are also reusable, washable, and microwavable, and thus have the highest demand amongst people.

Additionally, the latest innovations in injection-molded technologies are expected to have a positive impact on the injection molded plastics market growth, as the new packaging coming in the market is eco-friendly and 100% recyclable. Also, various government bodies are supporting the recyclable packaging as it will reduce carbon footprint and is expected to drive the injection molded plastics market trends.

SEGMENTATION

By Resin Analysis

Polypropylene Segment to Generate the Highest Revenue During the Forecast Period
Polypropylene holds the largest share in this market. Polypropylene is the most preferred resin for automotive, building, and construction industries as they are lightweight and shock-resistant, which are the essential properties in terms of safety. Polypropylene is amongst the lowest density plastics and is safe for food containers as it does not leach chemicals into food products. Polypropylene plastic injection molding is used to produce various parts and products of all the shapes and sizes. Some of the significant reasons for polypropylene to be widely used in injection molding include moisture-resistance, high molding capability, available in food-grade, excellent food grade, chemical resistance, and low cost.

The acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) segment also holds a significant share in the injection molded plastics market, as it has high strength, good toughness, and easy moldability. ABS has substantial applications in automotive parts, packaging, consumer products, industrial parts, and others. ABS is majorly used for the material as it has high impact resistance, toughness, and high resistance to scratch and provides excellent dimensional stability. The market for ABS is expected to rise in the near future due to its significant applications in the making of automotive parts.

By Application Analysis

Packaging Segment to Exhibit a Significant CAGR During the Forecast Period
The packaging segment held the largest share in this market. This segment is driven by food & beverages, pharmaceutical, and retail applications. Plastic closures and caps demand is driven by the long-term shift in consumer packaging as people moved from glass and metal to plastic because of the excellent properties of plastic packaging. Many injection molding companies work closely with the manufacturers of food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and other manufacturers as these companies have to deal with government regulations and legal liabilities. The packaging segment is also driven by demand from personal care & beauty, biomedical, and other industries, the injection molded plastics market analysis says.

The demand for electrical & electronics applications is increasing exponentially as these materials are widely used for the manufacturing of electrical and electronic devices. Manufacturing of various electronic devices, such as meters, sensors, and industrial test equipment, requires high accuracy. To meet this demand, components are made by injection molding method, which provides high accuracy.

Injection-molded plastics have applications in the manufacturing of automotive parts. Exterior, interior, decorative interior, and various components such as resonators, fuel tank systems, and electrical covers are the primary examples of parts made from the injection molding method.

REGIONAL ANALYSIS

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to remain a key region in the market during the forecast period owing to the rising demand for injection molded plastics from the packaging and automotive industries. China is a major consumer of injection-molded plastics due to the increase in the population along with rapid urbanization and will, thus, have a significant impact on the growth of the regional market. Moreover, increasing economic growth in Asia-Pacific and consumer inclination towards efficient and smart buildings have urged manufacturers to develop high-performance products in the building and construction industry.
