Injection Molded Plastics Market: Industry Demand, Analysis and Future Trends 2028
The global Injection Molded Plastics Market size is anticipated to reach USD 390.3 billion by 2028, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2021 to 2028. Growing demand from key applications including automotive, packaging, and construction particularly in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) nations, is likely to drive the growth. The high-growth regions such as Middle East and Asia Pacific have witnessed a surge in capacity addition over the last few years.
The increasing presence of plastic injection molding companies in China on account of low manufacturing costs and ample availability of skilled labor is anticipated to benefit the regional market. Major foreign companies are increasing their production capabilities in the region, owing to growing demand for plastic products. Government support in the form of tax benefits and financial incentives in China and India to increase the FDI flow has helped develop the market for plastics in these countries.
In packaging applications, High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is extensively used in thin wall injection molding. Growing packaging demand from food, bin liners, and thing gauge bags is anticipated to drive its growth over the forecast period. The rising penetration of injection-molded HDPE in shipping containers, industrial pails, and houseware applications is anticipated to further drive its demand over the forecast period.
The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the revenue generation of the companies operating in the market owing to the halt or slowdown in the production facilities. Thus, the companies are focusing on upgrade of their resources and production capabilities to help in the fight against the pandemic. For instance, G&C products, a U.S.-based plastic injection mold making company that produces plastic products for the fishing and medical industry, started the production of personal protective equipment such as face shields and face masks.
