Polypropylene & High-impact Polystyrene Market

Injection molding involves the production of plastic products by injecting molten materials into a mold, where it is melted, cooled, and solidified to form the final product. Thermoplastic as well as thermosetting injection-molded plastics are used for the production of several parts and components that are used in various applications. The prime thermoplastic polymers used in injection molding, include polypropylene, high impact polystyrene, low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, polycarbonate, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polyurethane, and polysulphone. In addition, epoxy resin, polyester, and melamine formaldehyde are some of the prominent thermosetting polymers used for injection molding. There is an increase in the demand for injection-molded plastics in the market over the last decade.

Injection-molded plastics are used in the production of complex and intricate-shaped parts to ensure precision and minimize wastage. Hence, injection-molded plastics are used in the production of automotive components, interior wrapping, and numerous assembly parts. It is majorly used in packaging applications to manufacture packaging parts and components to increase the aesthetic value and consumer friendliness of packaging products. Popularity of injection-molded plastics in building and construction applications is on the rise, owing to strength, durability, and texture of the injection-molded plastic parts. These plastic parts or components are mainly used in building and construction, for piping systems, insulations, wall boards, and roofing purposes. The healthcare industry is anticipated to be the fastest growing application segment for injection-molded plastic industry during the forecast period. Moreover, blood sample analysis cuvettes, pregnancy test devices, housings for needles, and medical devices components are the other application areas of these plastics, owing to their light weight and cost-effectiveness.

Injection-molded polypropylene and high-impact polystyrene use automated processes to reduce the manufacturing cost. It also reduces the waste production in production process.

The low density and recyclability properties are expected to drive the use of polypropylene and high impact polystyrene in the automotive industry during the forecast period.

Polypropylene & High-impact Polystyrene Market by Region

Region-wise, the Asia-pacific segment accounted for around 55.6% of the polypropylene & high-impact polystyrene market for injection molding share in 2021.  Polypropylene’s can be engineered into a wide range of packaging that help protect products users rely on every day, from medicine to yogurt to baby food. High-impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a low cost, tough plastic that is easy to thermoform and fabricate, and is often used for countertop point of purchase displays and indoor signs where ease of fabrication is essential.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Polypropylene & High-impact Polystyrene Market for Injection Molding

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities that do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries, including the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It led to either closure or suspension of production activities in most of the industrial units across the globe.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic stagnated production activities in various areas, such as consumer goods & electronics, household, packaging, horticulture & agriculture, construction, automotive, and textile making. Supply chain disruptions of raw materials to these industries led to decline in the demand for polypropylene & high-impact polystyrene.
  • In addition, the price of crude oil fell significantly due to decrease in demand for oil from various industries, subdued production activities in various industries, and increase in restrictions due to lockdown globally, which further reduced operating rates.
  • However, the demand for plastic products from the healthcare and food packaging industries is on the rise again due to the rise in preference for single use healthcare products and packaged food & beverages.
