The global injection molded plastic market was valued at US$ 316.7 billion in the year 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 415.9 billion by the year 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.6%. In terms of volume, the market was valued at XX KT in the year 2018 and is expected to reach XX KT by the year 2023, growing at a CAGR of XX%.

Injection molding is the most commonly used method for manufacturing plastics products in which plastics are heated until they are converted into a liquid form, and then with the help of the injection molding machine, they are injected into a mold of the final desired part. In the mold, the plastics solidifies to form the final desired product.

The injection molding process allows the use of multiple plastics at the same time and the creation of intricate and complex parts of high strength. Injection molded plastic products require less finishing which helps in cost reduction. Apart from this, the process is quick and has a high output rate, and can be automated, which further reduces the overall cost of the manufactured products. All these benefits of the injection molding process will help drive the growth of the injection molded plastic market.

The increasing demand for plastic components from various end-user industries such as packaging, automotive, and medical is expected to drive the growth of the injection molded plastic market during the forecast period. However, rising environmental concerns regarding the use of plastics and volatile prices of raw materials are expected to hinder market growth.
