Global Injection Molding Machines Market Size is Estimated to Reach USD 16,964 million by 2030, Growing at a CAGR of 5.9%: Straits Research

Asia-Pacific leads injection molding machines market due to booming packaging industry in China, India & Indonesia. Europe follows with rising adoption of energy-saving electric machines. North America to see strong growth with high demand for all-electric machines.

New York, United States, March 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Injection molding is a mechanism that allows for the mass production of components. It operates by injecting molten materials into a mold. It is typically employed in mass production to manufacture thousands of similar things. Components produced by injection molding include metals, glassware, elastomers, and confections. Although thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers are the most common, other polymers exist. The real benefit of injection molding is its mass manufacturing capability. After initial costs are accounted for, the unit cost of injection-molded items is extraordinarily cheap. The ingredients, such as synthetic resins (plastics), are heated and melted before they are put into the mold and cooled to form the desired shape. This process is referred to as injection molding because it resembles the injection of fluids using a syringe. Materials are melted and poured into the mold, where they solidify before being removed and completed.

Utilizing injection molding machinery permits the actual mass production of injection-molded plastic components. The injection molding machine is the most effective and energy-efficient way of mass-producing plastic products. The rise of the global injection molding machines market is propelled by the multiple qualities of injection molding machines, such as their durability, user-friendliness, higher manufacturing rates and rapid production, and high quality. Rapidly increasing industrial investment and robust demand for injection-molded polymers in the automotive and healthcare industries are driving the expansion of the global injection molding machine market. In addition, industry leaders’ manufacturing of energy-efficient, fully automated injection molding equipment stimulates the expansion of the injection molding market. Market participants provide injection molding machines in numerous sizes and designs to meet customers’ needs.

Advantage of Low Labour Cost and Mass Production Along with Material Flexibility and Low Production Waste to Drive the Global Injection Moulding Machines Market

According to Straits Research, “The global injection molding machines market size had a market share of USD 10,724 million in 2021, expected to advance to USD 16,964 million with a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.” Injection molding is an automated process in which an automatic tool operates efficiently on an injection molding machine. Machines and robots perform the majority of injection molding. These persons are solely accountable for overseeing and managing the process. This automation reduces the labor costs of the process. This drop in labor expenditure is predicted to reduce the cost of manufacturing plastic components. In addition, injection molding can make many identical components every hour.

Increasing production rates and rapid injection molding output are predicted to boost global injection molding machines market growth. In addition, injection molding allows for producing plastic components with various finishes, including light texture, medium texture, pad printed, smooth, and screen printed. Consequently, it is projected that cheap labor costs and mass manufacturing associated with injection molding machines will promote market growth.

A vital characteristic of the injection-molding process is its capacity to use many types of plastic to make plastic things simultaneously. Manufacturers may use thermoplastics, thermosetting, or a combination of elastomers in injection molding to get the needed properties. This technique allows for producing more complicated objects with various forms and motifs. In addition, once the mold is prepared, the manufacturer can adjust the component’s material and color. This factor is projected to drive the global market for injection molding machines. In addition, injection molding helps to reduce manufacturing waste. The majority of polymers produced by injection molding are recyclable.
