Analysts’ Viewpoint

Given the importance of the delicate nature of medical devices, the need for precision and care during their production has been heightened during the COVID-19 outbreak to ensure timely supply of test kits and other supplies. The 2-shot injection molding market is projected to clock a modest CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period. However, restraints such as improper use of release agents, poor welding techniques, and sometimes overdose in the use of lubricants are causing defects in products. Hence, companies should invest in innovative injection equipment and processes that sufficiently meet specifications of increasingly diverse, high quality, and value-added products.

2-shot Injection Molding Market: Overview

  • Manufacturers of plastic products have expanded their production capabilities due to the decrease in prices of crude oil, which is the primary source of raw material for plastics. Several manufacturers of plastic products have invested significantly in the expansion of their production facilities in the past few years. Investment in development of polymer materials has increased due to the decline in prices of raw materials as well as increase in global consumption. These factors are expected to propel the 2-shot injection molding market during the forecast period.
  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global 2-shot injection molding market for the actual year 2020 and the forecast period 2021 to 2031, rise in usage of 2-shot injection molding in plastic manufacturing is a key factor that is anticipated to boost the global 2-shot injection molding market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global 2-shot injection molding market is expected to cross US$ 14.9 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period

Rise in Consumption of Plastic Products: Key Driver of 2-shot Injection Molding Market

  • Usage of 2-shot injection enables designers to design product parts with a range of value-added features. Generally, in 2-shot injection molding, soft-touch materials are molded in combination with strong substrates to improve the product design ergonomically and esthetically. The bonds between the two materials are strong, and the product part has high surface quality. Plastic products can be molded in various color combinations. This increases the value of products.
  • 2-shot injection molding enables production of highly precise parts with high level of repeatability using a single tool. The added functionality imparted to product parts through 2-shot injection molding is likely to induce OEMs to design more products that would need to be manufactured through 2-shot injection molding. This, in turn, is estimated to drive the global 2-shot injection molding market.
  • Two component parts are manufactured in a single operation in 2-shot injection molding. This eliminates or reduces the need for expensive secondary joining or assembly. Furthermore, the rate of rejection of components manufactured by 2-shot injection molding is low, as chances of misalignment between two components, as seen in traditional inserts or over molding processes, are less. This increases the cost competitiveness of 2-shot injection moldings.
