Global Compression Molding Market: Overview
Compression molding is a process used to manufacture a wide range of composite products. It is a closed molding process with high pressure application. During the process of molding, a preheated polymer is placed into an open, heated mold cavity. The mold is then closed and is compressed so that material to be molded, touches all the areas of the mold. The compression molding process is used to produce various parts with wide range of complexities, lengths, and thicknesses. The obtained products offer characteristics such as high strength, higher automation, shorter time cycles, good reproducibility, and better dimensional stability. Thus, it is an important process that is used for a number of industries. Compression molding is suitable for mass production and is not economical for production of small parts or for prototyping applications. Along with that, the process requires lower cost of maintenance. Additional features of the process include higher rate of production, good surface finish, and high uniformity of parts. Thermoset composites such as polyesters, phenolic, melamines, and other resin systems are the commonly used materials in compression molding.
Manufacture of various parts of automotive and electronic products has increased due to the rise in demand for automotive and electrical products, particularly mobile phones and tablets. Compression molding process is primarily used in fabrication of these parts. This is expected to boost the demand for compression molding market during the forecast period. However, the initial capital investment is anticipated to be high due to high cost of machinery and parts. This can hamper the compression molding market across the globe.
