Injection molding involves the manufacturing of plastic products by injecting molten materials into a mold, where it is melted, cooled, and solidified to form the final product. Thermoplastic and thermosetting injection molded plastics are used to manufacture several parts and components for various applications. The major thermoplastic polymers used in injection molding include polypropylene, high-impact polystyrene, low-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene, polycarbonate, polypropylene composites, polyvinyl chloride, polyurethane, polysulphone, and others. In addition, epoxy resin, polyester, and melamine formaldehyde are some of the prominent thermosetting polymers used for injection molding. The demand for injection polypropylene & polypropylene composites has increased over the last decade, as they can attain complex & intricate shape, minimizing wastage of the material.
Surge in demand for polypropylene and polypropylene composites from various application industries acts as the major driver of the global PP and PP composites market. Moreover, low labor cost, advantage of mass production, and better waste management in the injection molding process have fueled the growth of the market. However, high initial tooling cost of the injection molding and availability of other substitutes providing stiff competition to polypropylene restrain the market growth. Conversely, technological advancements have led to the adoption of robotics in injection molding process, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market growth.
