Injection Molding Machinery Market Projected to Hit USD 13.42 Billion at a 3.89% CAGR by 2027 – Report by Market Research Future (MRFR)


New York, US, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a comprehensive research report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “Injection Molding Machinery Market Research Report: Information by Type, Clamping Force, Material, End-Use, and Region —Forecast till 2027” states that the global injection molding machinery market is estimated to grow to USD 13.42 BN by 2027, with a 3.89% CAGR during the assessment period.

Injection Molding Machinery Market Overview

The global injection molding machinery market is growing at a rapid pace. The market growth attributes to the massive adoption of injection molding machinery in the food & beverage packaging and consumer electronics industry. The growing usage of injection molding machinery in the making of lightweight vehicles is another major growth driver for the market. With the rising demand for lightweight vehicles led by stringent emission regulations concerning environmental health, the market value is estimated to escalate further during the next few years

Injection molding machinery is used in the making of lighter-weight parts. These machines can switch from high-pressure to low-pressure, allowing immediate energy savings. The low-constant-pressure injection molding process fills the mold slowly, allowing the material to cool, densify, and pack-as-it-fills. 

Players leading the global injection molding machinery market include,

  • HAITIAN International (China)
  • SUMITOMO Heavy Industries (Japan)
  • JAPAN Steel Works (Japan)
  • Chen Hsong Holdings (Hong Kong)
  • Hillenbrand Inc (US)
  • and Dongshin Hydraulic (South Korea)

Automatic injection molding machines can operate without an operator, adapting to significant melt flow variations to continue to make quality parts. Adding 3D visualization to injection molding systems is the latest trend, which delivers high-quality parts at unprecedented speed. It enables complete automation of injection molding workflows, allowing users to speed up new product design and reduce manufacturing risks & delays.

Industry Trends

The rising sales of ready-to-eat processed food with longer shelf life led by the heady lifestyle augments the demand for sustainable packaging solutions in the F&B industry. On the other hand, growing sales of compact & portable electronic instruments and electrical appliances fuels define the growing landscape of the consumer electronics market.

These factors would support the market growth throughout the review period. Additionally, the excessive use of injection molding machinery in medical device manufacturing and health & hygiene product packaging increases the market size. 

Conversely, price volatility and the demand-supply gap in raw materials required to produce injection molding machines are major factors expected to impede market growth. Nevertheless, substantially rising investments in developing new manufacturing techniques would support market growth throughout the forecast period.
