Polymer Microinjection Molding Market Analysis, Size, Share, Trends and Forecast 2019

Microinjection molding is a process in which high pressure machines are required for molding tools and parts in to miniature components. The machines used in the process should be capable of high pressures and speed, steady melt temperature, precise shot control and ultra fine controls. Materials used in micro molding are liquid crystal polymers (LCP), polyester, polycarbonate and acetal among others. Microinjection molding is used in various applications such as medical, electronics, automotive components, watches, telecommunication, micromechanics, optics and sensors among others. The market for polymer microinjection molding is majorly dominated by North America. Asia Pacific and Western Europe are anticipated to be the lucrative markets for polymer microinjection molding in upcoming years.

Growing demand for polymer microinjection molding from medical & healthcare sector has been the major driver for the growth of this market, as it is used in implants, catheter components, hearing aids, blade holders, and dental prosthetics among others. Other applications such as automotive, electronics and telecommunication are likely to provide more opportunities for the polymer microinjection molding market in the near future. Micro optics and micro fluids are anticipated to be potential applications for polymer microinjection molding. Growing demand for micro optics and micro fluids is expected to open new opportunities for the growth of the market in the near future. However, higher costs and lack of awareness about micro molding in developing countries can act as a major restraint for the growth of the polymer microinjection molding market.
