Market Overview

Introduction to Injection Molding:

Injection molding process in the plastic industry has evolved itself as one of the most dynamic technology in the recent decade. Injection molding is one of the most commonly used method which can fabricate almost any plastic type. Processes, technologies and materials used in the injection molding method continue to advance, allowing producers better insights to designs and help in development and production of efficient and cost effective plastic products. The products manufactured using injection molding technique may vary in dimensions, complexity and applications. Various kinds of plastic products are produced using injection molding such as jars, containers, body panels for cars, domed caps, lids, and closures among others.

Injection molding containers includes products such as plastic bottles, food containers, and cosmetic containers. The packaging industry heavily depends on injection molded plastic containers. For instance, food storage and packaging is highly dependent on injection molded plastic containers. Plastic containers find useful applications in various industries such as food & beverages, cosmetics, healthcare and pharmaceuticals. Due to multiple applications of injection molding containers, the type of plastic used is different. These containers are made up of different plastic types such as polypropylene, polyethylene and others. The advantage of containers made up of injection molding method is that it is repeatable, which means the second part produced is going to be practically identical to the first one.

Uses of plastic containers:

Plastic injection molding containers are used on daily basis, from household to industries. Containers manufactured using injection molding extrusion method are highly used. This containers are employed to pack containers, dairy products, personal care products and other household products. Also, the material which is being used in the manufacturing of injection molding containers have high acceptance in recycling centers and the growing demand for recycling packaging solutions which fuels the global demand for these containers.

Injection molding containers are very useful for storage purposes. Plastic is durable, as breaking of plastic containers is not an issue. Also, injection molding containers are cheaper than its counterparts such as glass, and metal. It provides cost effective solutions. With injection molding method, containers can be manufactured in bulk. The growth in global trade is increasing and it is also increasing the capacity of goods being transported, which creates an absolute need for packaging solutions in order to reduce chances of quality deterioration and ensure product integrity during transportation. Injection molding containers are known for its impact resistant properties. Injection molding containers such as drums, pails, and crates, among others are used widely across the globe.

Market Outlook:

The demand for cheaper packaging products, which can be possible by process such as injection molding is expected to fuels the growth of global injection molding containers market. Also, the demand of products for domestic and household purposes and growing global packaging industry is expected to drive the market over the next decade.

The pricing can be taken on the basis of container type. It is feasible to consider pricing as per container type because size and type of container vary according to applications.
