By 2020, global plastic injection market will reach 162 billion dollars.
Polypropylene market will continue taking the lead position on plastic injection market in 2020. Most growth of plastic injection market will mainly come from the demands of packaging industry for the materials. Besides, the increasing demands in other application in other industry including auto, packaging, electronic products and daily consumer products, construction and medical field will further promote growth ability of plastic injection market. However, fluctuation of oil price and high initial processing cost of plastic injection molding
will be the obstruction for the whole market growing.
The data showed that polypropylene market offered 51% of market income for the whole plastic injection market. Its features such as heat resistiveness, expediting setting, wearing resistance and high surface gloss are the main factors that the material occupies the dominant position on plastic injection market. Moreover, ABS had already widely been used for auto, construction, consumer products and electric industry. It is estimated that the material will become the fastest growing part on the market. Annual rate of increase will reach 6.8%. Besides, from 2014 to 2020, packaging industry will still occupy the dominant position on market.
