Injection Molding Machine Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Rising in demand for bio plastics

Since years, the injection molding technology has emerged as the novel technique for production and molding of the plastics. Plastics has gained attention from all industrial domain owing to light weight, durable, flexible, and versatile material. The growth of the injection molding machine market can be attributed to the rising demand for plastics across the globe. As per European Bioplastics, the production capacities dedicated for bioplastics is projected to escalate till 2,616 thousand tons by 2023 owing to soaring demand for bio plastics. Hence, the demand of the bio plastics, is projected to boost the market growth in the years to follow.

  • Increasing Demand of Injection Molding from Packaging Sector

The demand injection molding technology for the packaging application is growing consistently owing to the increasing demand for more efficient, durable, easy to handle packaging solutions. Growing demand for sustainable packaging is the prominent factor driving the market growth. The changing consumer demands and preferences, advancement in packaging designs and patterns to boost convenience, rising adoption of advanced packaging materials has driven the growth in the packaging sectors, which is further expected to drive the injection molding machine market during the forecast period.   

Market Restraints:

  • High Set Up and Maintenance Cost

Injection molding machine market is growing due to various advantages associated with the injection molding machine. However, the growth of this market is hampered owing to high set up and maintenance cost. The high cost is associated with the mold used, which is crafted from metals such as steel and aluminum. As each mold is a complex piece, and requires specification that makes it expensive, this escalates the overall cost of the injection molding machine. Also, large mold requires additional injection press that increases the overall price of the injection molding machine. The high set up and maintenance cost of the injection molding machine is anticipated to act as a roadblock for the market growth.
