The global plastic extrusion machine market generated $6.5 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $8.4 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5% from 2021 to 2028. Plastic extrusion machines are mechanical systems designed to produce continuous profile extruded plastics products in mass volume. Market players provide plastic extrusion machine of various sizes, types, and variants to meet the requirements of customers.
Factors such as the rapid growth in investment of plastic extrusion machines in the industrial sector, high speed and bulk production advantage of plastic extrusion machines, and high demand for extruded plastics products in the packaging, construction, and healthcare sectors drive the market growth. However, high initial cost of equipment is one of the major challenges faced by the plastic extrusion machine industry. Conversely, technological improvements create new opportunities for growth of the market.
Manufacturing sectors such as automotive, packaging, healthcare, and others, exhibit high demand for various types of plastic extrusion machine. Plastic extrusion is a method used for producing fixed cross-sectional profile plastic products. Polymers such as PVC, PP, and PE, are pressed through a die of desired shape and cross-section to produce extruded plastic products, including weather-stripping lines, pipes, tubes, plastic films, window frames, plastic sheet, wire insulations, and thermoplastic coatings.
Rise in awareness about energy saving globally propels the plastic extrusion machine market growth. Hence, plastic extrusion machine manufacturers are increasingly focusing toward manufacturing efficient and reliable twin-screw plastic extrusion machine to boost the growth of the market.
For instance, The Japan Steel Works (JSW) offers TEX series of twin-screw extruders, which ensures both high degassing and high kneading performance for direct film/sheet processing. In addition, higher manufacturing rates and rapid production through plastic extrusion is estimated to cater to the growth of the global plastic extrusion machine market.
Moreover, hectic lifestyle of consumers has increased the adoption of frozen food, and thereby, the extruded plastic products, which has further led to the rise in demand for plastic extrusion machine.
An increase in consumer focuses on manufacturing energy-efficient innovative blown film extrusion to the market. For instance, Shubham Extrusion Pvt. Ltd. offers a variety of blown film plastic extrusion machine to the market, including 5-layer and 7-layer co-extrusion blown film plant, twin-die blown film plant, and others for varied applications such as lamination films, courier bag films, agriculture film, liner bags, and others.
A rise in need for plastic extrusion machine from the building and construction industry is expected to drive the growth of the market. In addition, increase in demand for extruder machine from the transportation industry, propel the growth of the plastic extrusion machine market.
Blown film extrusion segment to lead in terms of revenue through 2028
Among process types, the blown film extrusion segment was the largest in 2020, capturing nearly two-fifths of the market share and would maintain its dominance through 2028. This is because industries such as automotive, consumer goods, and others opt for blown film plastic extrusion machinery to produce blown plastic films for their packaging applications. However, the tubing extrusion segment would grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.6% through 2028, owing to increasing application of these machines in industries such as food & beverage industry, medical industry, construction industry, and others.
Twin screw extrusion machine segment to be lucrative through 2028
Among machine types, the twin screw extrusion machine segment accounted for 59% of the market share in 2020 and would retain its dominance through 2028. The same segment would also witness the fastest CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period. This is due to the various benefits offered by twin screw extrusion machines over its single-screw counterpart, which includes high productivity, advanced mixing ability, and ability to handle several processing functions such as mixing, melting, and venting in one extruder.
Based on region, Asia-Pacific held the major share in 2020, garnering nearly half of the global market. Simultaneously, the market across LAMEA would grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. The other provinces discussed in the report include Europe and North America.
