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 Vietnam, 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.
  • However, Vietnam is also becoming increasingly competitive in the field of injection molding. Many Japanese companies has moved their production of automotive plastic parts from China to Vietnam where technologies such as injection molding is used at the highest level.
  • Owing to the increasing demand from various end-user industries, the market for injection molding is projected to increase over the forecast period.

Electronics Industry to Drive the Market Growth

  • There are several applications of plastics in electrical and electronics, some of them include use of plastics in all forms of display products, audio devices, cables and wires, circuit breakers and switch gears, fuse boxes, switches and knobs, transformers, food processing units, electrical kettles, refrigerator, microwave grills, and numerous other electronic goods. Apart from safety, durability, and efficiency in electrical and electronics products, plastics provide resistivity from electrical sources and mechanical shocks.
  • Use of plastics in electronic products have been existing since the longest time. New innovations and continuous development of smaller circuit boards and components are taking place almost every day, and the demand for high-performance plastics is increasing, owing to the property of plastics to withstand stress in assembling operations. Plastics help in increasing the functionality of the circuit in use, while also contributing to the decreasing size of the circuit.
  • Vietnam is identified as one of the top-five fastest growing technology equipment markets in the world, and one of the fastest growing markets in Southeast Asia. The electronics sector grew rigorously in the early half of the decade. Globally, the country ranks 12th in electronic exports. According to the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade, for the first 10 months of 2018, the production index of electronic goods increased by more than 17% and the overall industrial production index (IIP) grew by 7.85%. This is because of the rise in consumer demands and growth in investment in chip technology, electronic boards, and semiconductors.
  • Vietnam has captured market share from many other countries in the region. The country’s electronic and refrigeration engineering products consumption level is expected to rise from the current 7.3% to 11.9% in 2019.
  • Apart from the smartphone or tablet products, the country has also witnessed a fair share growth in other electronics items, including refrigerators, other display products, and various electrical appliances. The Vietnamese electronics sector is attracting several opportunities from the foreign markets, which is boosting the growth of the electronics market, thus fuelling the demand for plastics in the country.
