Increasing Focus on Manufacturing of Smart Machines to Fuel the Market
Growing Demand from Packaging and Automobile Sector to Drive the Market

COVID-19 Impact

The injection molding machine market growth has been harmed by the COVID 19 pandemic outbreak, which has resulted in severe lockdown measures in various countries and delays in machine manufacturing and development. Molding machines have recently seen an increase in demand from makeshift hospitals and healthcare institutes worldwide for the manufacture of medical equipment. The coronavirus epidemic has brought attention to the healthcare industry. The need for medical devices such as syringes, air systems, and other medical instruments grew exponentially as the number of COVID-19 cases increased dramatically in 2020. Countries such as India and China became the global hub for the manufacturing of molded plastic equipment for the healthcare industry.

Drivers and Restraints

Increasing Promotion of Sustainability in Molding Operations to Fuel growth

Energy costs are becoming a highly critical component in injection molding processes. Apart from raw materials, which can account for up to 70% of an injection molded part’s manufacturing costs for packaging applications, the 10% share for energy is also a significant cost. As a result, the adoption of electric-powered machines is increasing in molding applications. For example, the electric drive of the plasticizing device is one of the most critical hardware components in a high-performance hydraulic system for reducing energy consumption.

Energy savings of up to 30% are possible, according to measurements. Intelligent hydraulic controls can also help with energy conservation in injection molding machines. For example, the GreenLine energy-saving kit contains a module that keeps track of how much energy has been used. For accurate quantification, the module’s software displays the energy consumption of each process phase.

Production efficiency, shorter injection times due to dynamic servo-motors, higher repeatability, reduced noise, and enhanced acceleration output are some of the more prominent advantages of an all-electric injection molding machine. Thus, the promotion of sustainability in molding operations is opening new growth avenues for this market.
