Invention of plastic drastically changed the way the global consumer lived, before it. The worldwide rapid penetration of plastic products led to the invention of sophisticated high-end plastic moulding technologies. Injection moulding is the method by which almost all plastic products and parts are manufactured, which vary greatly by size, shape and application. Generally the injection moulding process requires injection moulding machine, plastic raw material and a mold. Low cost, flexibility in production, lightweight and high durability are the factors drove the rapid plastic penetration into almost all the applications and end-use industries. The injection moulding solutions market is expected to witness the lucrative growth rate in coming years. The higher demand for plastic products from increasing applications influences the growth of injection moulding solutions market. This market has stakeholders such as injection moulding machine designers and manufacturers, consultants and injection moulding service providers.
