Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, March 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Molded Plastic Market. 

The global molded plastics market size is USD 395.06 Million in 2022 and is expected to grow till USD 726.22 million by 2029, at a Compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.20%

Molded plastics are less expensive and lighter than alternative materials, such as metals, and are thus preferred in commercial and industrial applications. They are usually made from fossil fuels like crude oil, natural gas, and naphtha. The environmental impact of petroleum-based molded plastics on the ecosystem has prompted the development of bio-based plastics. Bioplastics include a wide spectrum of materials. The first-generation bioplastics were made from traditional renewable and agricultural resources such as soybeans, corn, and sugar cane. Second-generation sources shifted from food to non-food renewable sources like hemp, sawdust, switchgrass, and castor beans, as well as first-generation feedstock waste like peels and husks.

  • Disposal of Molded Plastics
  • High Cost of Recycling

The following section goes into more detail about some notable developments and factors that are assisting the Molded Plastics Market in projecting its anticipated growth during the forecast period.

  • The rate of increase in construction output is impressive. According to recent research, these volumes would rise by 85% by 2029, generating USD 15.5 trillion in revenue for the industry. It is important to note that only three nations—India, China, and the United States of America—will be at the vanguard of this development.
  • There would be a rise in demand for construction, building, and transportation due to an anticipated 2 billion more people expected to live on the world over the forecast period, increasing the current number of 7.7 billion to 9.7 billion by the year 2050. By 2050, there will be more people living worldwide, which will increase demand for homes, workplaces, recreation areas, and public amenities, fueling development in the global market for moulded plastics. To conduct their everyday activities, they would also need transit tools and modes, which would increase the demand for cars. Again, over the cited time span, this would be a key growth driver in the industry.

Molded polyethylene plastics are expected to lead the market.

During the forecasted period, polyethylene is expected to be the most valuable sector of the Molded plastics market. Extrusion, injection moulding, blow molding, and rotational moulding are some of the molding processes used to make plastic components for use in the packaging, construction, automotive, and electronics & electrical sectors. Due to its abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, flexibility, and exceptional low-temperature toughness, polyethylene is favoured in the aforementioned applications.

Molded plastics recycling difficulties are hindering the market’s growth.

Molded plastics are employed in a variety of industries, including packaging, vehicles, construction, and agriculture. These goods are used in particular industries, Due to their low weight, durability, high strength-to-weight ratio, shock resistance, and low toxicity. As a result, there has been an upsurge in the demand for plastic objects. However, their present levels of use have resulted in huge rubbish disposal, which has resulted in a plethora of environmental problems. Hazardous compounds are created as pollutants when plastic products are discarded and released into the environment. The most frequent pollutants include benzene and dioxins, as well as heavy metals like lead and cadmium. These chemicals and heavy metals unleash toxic toxins into the environment.

Market Dynamics

Global molded plastic market is expected to witness a dynamic growth in the forecast period owing to growing packaging and petrochemical industry. These sectors use plastics extensively in the production of consumer electronics, household care items, and a rise in the use of plastics in the automotive business. For instance, the Organization Internationale des Constructeurs Automobiles (OICA) estimates that the car sector grew at a pace of 4.5% between 2023 and 2029. Vehicles with low VOC emissions and environmental sustainability are made using polymers, which are in higher demand. Additionally, the expansion of the healthcare industry is raising the demand for polymers due to their many benefits, including moisture resistance, sturdiness, and flexibility in restorative devices, pharmaceutical containers, and liquid medicines.

Molded plastic also exhibits a number of other qualities, including elasticity, adaptability, insulation, affordability, high chemical resistance, superb processability, and design freedom, all of which are crucial for automotive and building component components. Additionally, the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) (France) forecasted that the world's automobile output would reach 97,302,534 vehicles in 2022, representing a rise of 2.36% from 2023 to 2029.

Packaging is expected to be the most popular and fastest-growing use of Molded plastics.

In terms of value, packaging is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing application. The growing need for alternatives to traditional packaging materials like metals and glass is primarily to blame for the sector’s growth. Due to their design flexibility, chemical and moisture resistance, lightweight, and cheap cost, moulded plastics are expected to gain appeal in the packaging sector. In the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries, moulded plastics are used to make cans, containers, bottles, and packaging sheets. Such factors are anticipated to boost the segment’s growth.

Agriculture makes extensive use of Molded plastics. The rising need for plastics in this industry is projected to boost the Molded plastics market.

Farmers have benefited from the rising usage of plastics in this industry by increasing crop yield and enhancing food quality. PE, PP, PVC, and PET are some of the most often used agricultural Molded plastics. These polymers may be found in greenhouses, tunnels, mulching, reservoirs and irrigation systems, silage, fitting and spray cones, and netting used to shade the inside of a greenhouse. Water and nutrient waste may be avoided by using PVC irrigation lines. Reservoirs made of plastic help in the retention of rainfall. Greenhouses and mulching help to decrease pesticide consumption by keeping crops enclosed within a controlled enclosure. Plastic tunnels are used to grow plants like watermelon and asparagus effectively.
