Injection molding is a manufacturing process in which plastic products are produced by injecting molten materials into a mold, where it is melted, cooled, and solidified to form the final product. Thermoplastic as well as thermosetting injection-molded plastics are used for the production of several parts and components that are used in various applications. The prime thermoplastic polymers used in injection molding, include polypropylene, high-impact polystyrene, low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, polycarbonate, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polyurethane, and high-impact polystyrene. In addition, epoxy resin, polyester, and melamine formaldehyde are some of the prominent thermosetting polymers used for injection molding. There is an increase in the demand for injection-molded plastics in the market over the last decade. Furthermore, there is a raise in demand for injected molded polypropylene and high-impact polystyrene in various end-user industries across the globe.
Wide range of application of the materials in various end-user industry and low waste production during the production process majorly drive the global polypropylene & high-impact polystyrene market for injection molding. Moreover, low labor cost and bulk production advantages supplements the growth of polypropylene & high-impact polystyrene market for injection molding. However, high initial tooling cost and limitation on design of the finished product as the injection molding is specified to only one single design limit the market growth. Technological advancement leads to the adoption of automation in the injection molding process, which is expected to make future opportunities for the market growth.
