The global Medical Injection Molding Machines Market Size was valued at $685.9  million in 2020, and is projected to reach $1,128.9 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.8% from 2021 to 2030. The medical injection molding machines is used to create products made up of rubber, plastic, and other substances. The manufacturing technique permits large quantities of medical devices to be manufactured. It operates by injecting molten materials into a mound. This is utilized to make thousands of identical components as part of a mass-production process. Metals, glassware, elastomers, and confections are some of the materials utilized in injection molding, although thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers are the most often used. Rubber, plastic, metal, ceramic, and other materials are injected into injection molding machines to make items. The medical injection molding machines are utilized in a wide range of sectors, including automotive, packaging, toy manufacturing, construction, consumer products, and logistics.

Market Dynamics

The growth of the global medical injection molding machine market is majorly driven by the increase in investment in the industrial sector and the strong demand for injection molded plastics goods in the healthcare sector. Moreover, medical suppliers have discovered that plastic injection molding medical parts, components, and devices are the most cost-effective and efficient ways to achieve the quality and standards they require. Furthermore, to ensure energy efficiency, key companies are creating fully automated injection molding machines for medical applications, which notably contributes toward the medical injection molding machines market growth. For instance, in November 2020, Nissei Plastic launched injection molding machines in the completely electric FVX Series. As a result, the medical injection molding machines market is expected to develop due to increased energy savings from the usage of electric injection molding equipment.

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing enormous impact on lives of people and overall community. Originating as a crisis to human health, it now poses significant threat to worldwide trade, economy, and finance. Owing to the continuous lockdown in key global countries, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted the medical injection molding machines business. Key players in medical injection molding machines market can afford a complete lockdown only for a limited period, after which they would have to alter their investment plans. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases is expected to reduce in the near future, as vaccine for COVID-19 has been introduced in the market. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of injection molding machines companies at their full-scale capacities, which would aid the medical injection molding machines market to recover by the beginning of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases start to decline, equipment and machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Cyclic olefin copolymer segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR

One of the major factors boosting the global medical injection molding machines market growth is material selection. High molecular weight, appearance, durability, and relative smoothness of polyethylene make it suitable for the surfaces of prostheses and wearable devices. It is a high-strength, low-cost option. Similarly, polypropylene exhibits enhanced heat resistance, which make it ideal for components that must be sterilized frequently in an autoclave. In addition, it possesses high radiation resistance. Thus, all these factors collectively are expected to provide significant opportunities for the expansion of the global during the forecast period.

However, high initial tooling and machinery costs associated with medical injection molding machines are likely to limit the industry expansion. A big and complicated mold machine, for example, costs approximately $80,000 or more. It further has high maintenance and installation cost associated with it. Furthermore, the availability of alternatives such as 3D printing, urethane casting, and thermoforming acts as a key deterrent of global medical injection molding machines market.
