Global Injection Molding Machine Market 2016-2020

About Injection Molding Machine

Injection molding is the most commonly used manufacturing process for the fabrication of plastic parts. Injection molding is used to manufacture a wide variety of products, which vary considerably in their dimensions, complex structures, and end-use applications. The injection molding is done by an injection molding machine and requires plastic and the typical raw material, and a shaping mold. The molding machine melts the plastic, which is then injected into the mold, where it cools and solidifies into the final part.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global injection molding machine market to grow at a CAGR of 2.52% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Injection Molding Machine Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global injection molding machine market: ARBURG, Haitian International Holdings, Husky Injection Molding Systems, NISSEI, and Sumitomo Heavy Industries Ltd.

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Asian Plastic Machinery (Chen Hsong Group), ATEC Plastics, BMB, Dongshin Hydraulics, ENAIVIV Machinery Industrial, ENGEL AUSTRIA, FU CHUN SHIN MACHINERY MANUFACTURE, HUARONG PLASTIC MACHINERY, HWA CHIN MACHINERY FACTORY, IMS Deltamatic (Turra), Inyectora Para Plasticos Arsa, JACO Manufacturing Company, Japan Steel Works, JINHWA GLOTECH Machinery, Jon Wai Machinery Works, KAWAGUCHI, KING'S Machinery and Engineering, KraussMaffei, L.K. Machinery, LIEN FA INJECTION MACHINERY, Mateu y Sole, MEIKI, Milacron, Miniature Plastic Molding, MULTIPLAS ENGINERY, Negri Bossi, Netstal, Niigata Machine Techno Company, NINGBO HAITAI PLASTIC MACHINERY, OIMA, OJSC Litmash, Photonike Group (Sandretto), Presma, Romi Machines UK, Sanjo Seiki, Smargon, Stork IMM, Tat Ming Engineering (Dongguan), Tederic Machinery, TMC Technology, TOSHIBA MACHINE, Toyo Machinery & Metal, U-MHI Platech, VICTOR Taichung Machinery Works, Wabash MPI, Welltec Machinery, Windsor Machines, WINTAL MACHINES (Italtech), WITTMANN BATTENFELD, WOOJINPLAIMM, YIZUMI Group, and Yuh-Dak Machinery.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of latest trends in the market is aluminum metal injection molding. For several decades, metal injection molding has been considered as the most suitable method for a wide variety of metals and alloys. However, when it comes to aluminum, the process has been deemed unsuitable. With years of R&D carried out at the Technical University, Vienna, researchers have developed a unique powder injection molding technique for aluminum metal, which can solve the previous problems and aid in the manufacturing of complex-shaped parts; this saves on weight and ensures that the material is used in an efficient manner. The technology will be of particularly high interest in sectors like automotive, aerospace, and space technology, where the weight of the final components is of utmost importance.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is GHG emission reduction targets spur demand for light-weight vehicles. he global automotive industry has grown over the past five years. After being affected by the economic instability, especially in the US in 2009 and more recently in China in 2015, the profit margins for the sector are in the process of recovery. Technavio expects the industry to revive significantly by the end of the forecast period. The year 2015 was a mixed year for the automobile industry as more production, but less revenue has been one of the major highlights within the industry. The industry gained its much-needed boost in 2015 due to record sales of vehicles in the US. Automotive OEMs are currently driven by the demand for lightweight vehicles that ensure greater fuel efficiency and lower CO₂ emissions.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is high cost of tooling. In the majority of injection molding projects, arriving at an accurate and appropriate budget estimate poses a significant challenge. Injection molding tools involve a high initial cost despite having a comparatively low cost of production. These two factors have a huge impact on the entire process as well as the lifecycle of the product. Injection molding tools are quite expensive.
