World Plastics Processing Machinery

Growth in the world plastics processing machinery market will total 4.0% annually through 2019 in value terms. Gains will be fueled by healthy increases in plastic resin demand. Strong growth for smaller volume products such as 3D printing (additive manufacturing) and thermoforming machinery will also boost demand.

This report segments the world plastics processing machinery industry by Product & Market. Data is provided in million dollars.

Plastics Processing Machinery Products include:
Injection Molding Machinery
Extrusion Machinery
Blow Molding Machinery
Plastics Machinery Aftermarket Parts

Injection molding machinery will remain the largest of these through 2019. Fastest growth will be for extrusion machinery, driven by solid growth in global construction activity.

Major Plastics Processing Machinery Markets include:
Packaging
Consumer/Institutional Products
Construction

Packaging was the leading outlet in 2014. The most rapid gains through 2019 are forecast for the construction market, fueled by an improved outlook for construction spending in North America and Western Europe.

World regions and countries covered in the study include:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

The Africa/Mideast region will see the strongest advances through 2019, as the region builds up its processing capabilities. China will continue to be the largest market, although growth will slow from the pace of the last decade.

A number of multinational firms participate in the world plastics processing machinery industry, but most companies active in the industry are small- to medium-sized firms that only operate in one or a few countries. Leading suppliers include: ARBURG, Brückner Group, ENGEL, FANUC, Haitian International, Husky Injection Molding, Japan Steel Works, KraussMaffei Technologies, Milacron, Stratasys, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, and Toshiba Machine.
