Global molded plastics market was valued at $529,845 million in 2016, and is expected to garner $690,158 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 3.9% from 2017 to 2023. Molded plastics are synthetically produced non-metallic compounds, which can be molded into various shapes for commercial use. These are highly versatile, efficient, malleable, and can be hardened to obtain the desired consistency. These are used for designing small components with tremendous amount of detailing and refinement. These are used in various applications such as building & construction, automotive & transportation, consumable & electronics, packaging, and others such as medical, stationary, and textiles, owing to their high ductility, tensile strength, impact resistance, moisture resistance, and greater design flexibility. In addition, these are used in the manufacturing of car fascia, bumpers, grilles, headlight pods, panels, fenders, wheel wells, engine cover, table components, air flow ducts, equipment, exterior fascia & decorative panels, and other components. These are used to produce electrical conduits, rain water & sewage pipes, plumbing, gas distributions pipes, storage tanks, flooring tiles & rolls, PVC sheets, insulating membranes, and other construction materials.

Packaging segment generated the highest revenue in 2016, owing to increase in adoption of molded plastics for packaging industrial and consumer goods. Polyethylene is primarily used in packaging materials to increase the shelf life and durability of products, owing to its high ductility, tensile strength, and impact resistance. High tensile strength and better design flexibility have increased its adoption in manufacturing various automotive components. Polypropylene was the leading product segment in 2016, due to its widespread applications in the packaging and automotive industry. In the automotive industry, molded polyethylene is used in automotive dashboard, bumpers, grills, bottle caps, music systems, wire spools, storage containers, one-piece chairs, seat panels, mechanical parts, and other components. Injection molding technology is the most popular technology used for producing molded plastics. This segment accounted for the highest revenue in 2016. It uses automated processes to reduce the manufacturing cost. It reduces waste production during the manufacturing process. Low production waste, faster production processes, and ability of mass production are expected to foster the market growth during the forecast period.

Rapid consumption of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) in emerging economies such as India, China, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, and others has led to higher consumption of molded plastics in the packaging industry. Thus, growth in packaging industry is one of the major factors driving the global molded plastics market. The implementation of fuel economy regulations towards achieving 2025 Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards to reduce CO2 emissions have enforced automotive manufacturers to focus on developing lightweight materials such as molded plastics. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2015, the registration of electric cars increased by 70% in 2015, with sales staggering at 550,000 vehicles. Thus, growth in the automotive industry is expected to drive the molded plastics market. Rapid economic growth and rise in the disposable income have led to increased consumption of consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, computers, and TVs in the emerging economies such as India and China. The consumer electronics industry is expected to grow, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, is expected to drive the demand for molded plastics, as majority of these products are made of molded plastics. Volatile prices of raw materials such as ethylene and propylene are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

The global molded plastic market is segmented based on product, technology, application, and geography. Based on product, the market is divided into polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, polystyrene, low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate, and engineering plastics.

Molded Plastics Market Report, forecasts that the global market was valued at $529,845 million in 2016, and is projected to reach $690,158 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 3.9% from 2017 to 2023. In 2016, the molded polypropylene segment accounted for about one-fourth share of the global market in terms of revenue.

Molded plastics are synthetically produced from non-metallic compounds, which can be molded into various shapes for commercial applications. These are highly versatile, efficient, and malleable, and can be hardened to achieve the desired consistency. These molded plastics can be modified by adding pigments to their polymers. Polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyethylene, and others are some of the compounds that can be used as molded plastics in building & construction, automotive & transportation, consumable & electronics, packaging, medical, and other applications.

Stringent government regulations to reduce CO2 emissions have led to increase in the consumption of lightweight materials such as molded plastics in the automobile industry. Rapid economic growth and rise in disposable income have increased the consumption of consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, computers, and TVs in the emerging economies such as India and China. The consumer electronics industry is expected to grow, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, owing to extensive use of molded plastics. This in turn is expected to drive the demand for molded plastics.

Polypropylene was the leading product segment in the global market in 2016, owing to its wide range of applications in the packaging and the automotive industry. Polypropylene is used for packaging of various industrial and consumer goods, owing to its flexibility, strength, and high resistance to chemicals, bases, and acids. In the automotive industry, it is used in automotive dashboards, front bumpers, rear bumpers, bottle caps, music systems, wire spools, storage containers, one-piece chairs, seat panels, mechanical parts, and other components. However, the market is affected by factors such as volatile prices of raw materials prices such as ethylene and propylene.

Key Findings of the Molded Plastics Market:

Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its dominant position in the market in terms of value during the forecast period, followed by Europe.
Polypropylene segment generated the highest revenue in 2016, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
