Global Injection Molded Plastics Markets, 2020-2027 - Growing Demand from Automotive, Packaging, and Construction Industries

24 September 2020

Dublin, Sept. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Injection Molded Plastics Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Raw Material (Polypropylene, ABS, HDPE, Polystyrene), by Application (Packaging, Automotive & Transportation, Electronics, Medical), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global injection molded plastics market size is anticipated to reach USD 374.8 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.0%, over the forecast period

Growing demand from key applications including automotive, packaging, and construction particularly in countries including Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS), is likely to drive the market. The high-growth regions such as the Middle East and the 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 the 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 application, 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. 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 stepping up 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 fishing and medical industry, started the production of personal protective equipment such as face shields and face masks.
