Electric injection molding machines are highly efficient, which require less start-up time and run-time as compared to hydraulic injection molding machines.

A hybrid injection molding machine combines the best of both hydraulic and electric injection molding machines. Hybrid injection molding machine provides high clamping force of hydraulic machine and high precision, energy efficiency, reduced noise, and repeatability of the electric injection molding machine, resulting in a better performance for both thick- and thin-walled parts.

By End-use Analysis

The automotive end-use segment led the market and accounted for over 29.2% of the global revenue share in 2020 on account of the factors such as repeatability, material compatibility, fast prototypes with rapid tooling, and high precision and surface finish.

The advent of electric vehicles worldwide can also be seen as an opportunity for injection molding machine manufacturers. Electric drive trains, braking, and clutching system have parts such as gears, seals, magnets that are manufactured using injection molding.

The manufacturing of smartphones, tablets, laptops, connectors, sensors and various other electronic components require injection molding. These parts require high levels of accuracy and quality which injection molding machines can deliver, making it the fastest-growing end-use segment with a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period.

The growing electronics industry in China, South Korea, and Taiwan with the presence of technology-driven companies is expected to play a key role in the growth of the injection molding machines market. 

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific led the market and accounted for 41.8% of the global revenue share in 2020. Increasing investments in packaging and electronics, coupled with a strong consumer base in countries such as China, Japan, and India, are expected to play a crucial role in triggering the demand for injection molding machines over the forecast period.

The European injection molding machine industry plays a crucial role in the overall injection molding machine market. Germany, Italy, France, and Spain are notable countries in the European region contributing significantly to the European injection molding machine market.

France is expected to be one of the fastest-growing economies in the market. Rising research initiatives, technological advancements, and growing demand for packaging and automotive industries are likely to attract new players to tap opportunities in the country, augmenting the demand for injection molding machines.
