Renewable plastic mold industry ushers in new opportunities for development


The requirements of modern industry for plastic molds not only require high precision, but also excellent internal quality. In order to meet this requirement, we must develop and utilize new technologies of plastic molds. At present, the new technologies of plastic molds introduced from abroad are gradually being popularized and utilized in the southern coastal areas, which has played a great role in improving the quality of plastic parts. On the whole, the world mold market is in short supply, and the market demand is maintained at US $60 billion to US $65 billion. At the same time, China’s mold industry has also ushered in a new round of development opportunities.


However, because plastic products are high molecular polymers, how to deal with waste plastic products has become a scratching problem. With simple landfill treatment, plastic products are difficult to decompose and pollute the soil environment. If incineration is carried out, the auxiliary materials added in the plastic production process will produce toxic and harmful gases and pollute the air environment.

It is understood that the emergence and development of recycled plastic molds is expected to solve the pollution problem of plastic products. In recent years, people have paid more and more attention to the quality of living environment, and the people’s awareness of environmental protection has been continuously strengthened. In addition, the rise of crude oil prices has pushed up the price of plastic raw materials. The clean and environmentally friendly recycled plastic industry has obtained a good opportunity for development. According to industry experts, China’s recycled plastic industry has made great progress through the adjustment of products and industrial structure through technological innovation, It is developing towards the direction of high quality, multi variety and high technology.



Some experts pointed out that in the future, China’s mold industry should not only continue to improve its production capacity, but also focus on the adjustment of internal structure and the improvement of the level of technological development. It mainly refers to the professional adjustment of enterprise structure, the development of product structure towards medium and high-end molds, the improvement of import and export structure, the forming analysis and structural improvement of medium and high-end automobile panel molds, the application of multi-functional composite molds and composite processing and laser technology in mold design and manufacturing, high-speed cutting, ultra precision machining and polishing technology and informatization.


Experts believe that under the background of vigorously promoting circular economy, carrying out traditional industrial reform and promoting environment-friendly sustainable development, although there are still various problems to be solved in the domestic recycled plastic industry, the development prospect of the recycled plastic mold industry is still bright. Domestic plastic industry enterprises should seize the opportunity to develop recycled plastic production projects and promote the green development of the industry. Some domestic plastic molds began to replace imported products


In recent years, domestic enterprises have continued to improve mold technology and products. Therefore, some plastic molds or plastic parts began to circulate internationally, successfully entered the supply chain system of some high-end industries, and replaced some imported products to get rid of their dependence. However, it is undeniable that only a few of them have joined the international high-end market.


Mold industry belongs to the basic industry of the national economy, specifically involving machinery, automobile, light industry, electronics, chemical industry, metallurgy, building materials and other industries, with a wide range of applications. With the rapid development of China’s industry, the development of automobile manufacturing, it manufacturing and medical devices has brought development opportunities to the whole mold industry.
