Key Market Trends

Injection Molding Technology to Dominate the Market

  • Injection molding is mostly done using virgin or high-quality processing resins. High-performance plastic pallets are usually injection molded. Injection molding is a relatively capital-consuming process, but offers the advantage of high-speed processes.
  • Therefore, injection molding is found to be beneficial in the bulk production of plastic pallets. Injection molding processes are used in wire spools, packaging, bottle caps, automotive dashboards, pocket combs, etc.
  • The explosive growth of local automotive, packaging, and chemical processing industries, across the world, is expected to provide  a favorable market for injection molding.
  • Owing to the advantageous geographical location of Philippines, with easy access to the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific end users, the consumption of injection molded plastic pallets is expected to increase drastically. However, China leads the market, and holds a competitive edge, thereby hindering the growth of the Philippine plastics market to an extent.
  • Philippine government legislations and recycling reforms, in order to reduce plastic litter, further strengthen the market scenario for injection molding manufacturing processes.
  • Owing to the increasing demand from various end-user industries, the market for injection molding is projected to increase over the forecast period.

Construction Industry to Drive the Market Growth

  • Plastic hardware are corrosion resistant, which allows it to survive harsh weather conditions. They can also be recycled without losing any chemical properties. Most importantly, plastic materials are quite economical, which makes it an attractive option for applications in the construction sector.
  • In the building & construction sector, plastics are used as screws, hinges, electrical wiring, flooring, water proofing, decorative purposes, windows, door, sound & thermal insulation, roofing materials, sealants, cladding panels, lamination etc.
  • The rise in building and construction activities is the prominent factor augmenting the demand for plastics in the country.
  • Owing to the acceleration in both public and private construction, coupled with the initiatives like ‘Build, Build, Build’ program, the government is building more projects in the country. This, in turn, is likely to increase the construction industry growth in the country.
  • The Filipino government is largely focused on promoting various infrastructure development program and maintaining a steady economic growth in the upcoming years. Increasing growth in the Philippines building & construction industry is expected to drive the market for plastics.
