Focus on polypropylene plastics, ABS, polystyrene, HDPE, polycarbonate, polyamide (nylon) and polyurethane

Dublin, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Added Injection Molding: Global Markets and Technologies 2020-2025 report to offer.

The global market for plastic injection molding is expected to grow from 121.40 billion US dollars in 2020 to 157.70 billion US dollars by 2025, with an average annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% in the period 2020-2025.

Injection molding of plastics continues its dominance in the processing of polymers into everyday products, including kitchen appliances, toys and packaging, as well as other end-use industries.

Amid the recovery of the major global economies in the post-COVID phase in early 2021, mold makers are gradually moving towards meeting pre-COVID performance standards. However, the demand for plastic resins is increasing with massive demand in the world market. In the current phase, partnerships with trusted experts should drive growth. Market participants are increasingly investing in the acquisition of new machines and systems and relying on skilled workers in order to meet the increasing demand, particularly in the medical sector.

Rapid globalization, growing consumption and rapid technological progress have opened up a wealth of opportunities for market participants around the world. The industry consistently pursues extensive (R&D) activities to develop innovative and efficient materials. In addition, an increase in implementation, the achievement of economies of scale and operational efficiency will continue to help market participants to achieve the desired performance targets.
