Molded plastics are non-metallic compounds that are synthetically produced. They can be molded into different shapes for commercial use. These are highly efficient, malleable,versatile, 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.

Market Dynamics

Molded plastics facilitate resource efficient mobility and improved functionality by substituting heavier, outmoded materials by lightweight plastic materials. The increase in use of molded plastics components in automobiles has enabled the manufacturers to address increase in environmental concerns by reducing CO2 emissions that threaten the environment. Moreover, the use of molded plastics in automobile provides high design flexibility, cuts the overall weight, reduces CO2 emission, increases passenger safety, and provides resource efficient solution, which is expected to further propel the molded plastics market growth in automotive industry.Rise in construction activities, such as housings, commercial, and infrastructural projects in emerging economies, is also projected to drive the growth of global molded plastics market in the near future. However, continual volatility in prices of raw material such as ethylene and propylene is anticipated to restrain the growth of global molded plastics market over the forecast period. In addition, stringent environmental regulations are expected to increase in the coming years, affecting the growth of molded plastics market during the forecast period.
