Injection molding machine is the plastic machinery variety which owns largest output and application volume, and also is the main export force of Chin’s plastic machinery industry. In 2011, China’s export volume of injection molding machine was 24,535 units, increased by 125.71% compares with 2010. And this number reached 19,378 units from January to September of 2012, and the export amount reached $ 675 million. With the increasing demand for plastic, plastic machinery industry has large market potential. From the global perspective, the top three plastic machinery varieties are injection molding machine, extruder/extruder production line and blowing machine, they account for more than 80% of the plastic machinery total output value, of which, injection molding machine accounts more than 50% of these three main varieties.
In 2011, China’s injection molding machine’s annual output was 76,235 units, increased by 5.98% over 2010. As for the overall situation, from 2006 to 2011, China’s injection molding machine industry slowed its growth speed, but the annual production volume continued to maintain the growth trend year by year and the annual growth rate was 4.13%.
Huidian Research forecast that the supply volume of China’s injection molding machine market will reach 79,284 units in 2012,, and this number will reach 82,456 units and 96,462 units in 2013 and 2017 respectively.
