Plastic molding is the process of shaping plastic using a rigid frame allowing for the creation of custom products of myriad shapes and sizes. Molded plastics are utilized in a wide range of applications ranging from large commercial-grade storage containers to small travel-size shampoo bottles. They are commonly used in the agricultural, pharmaceutical, electronics, automotive, and medical fields, to name just a few.
The global molded plastics market size is projected to reach USD 390,950 million by 2026, from USD 292,400 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2026. Rapid industrialization, increasing adoption by diverse industries, and manufacturers’ ability to produce high-quality, cost-efficient parts has propelled the plastic molding industry to new heights.
