- Demand for automotive molding is not decreasing, and scale of automotive mould industry is expanding steadily.
With upgrading of people's consumption experience, demand for automobiles is constantly improving, prompting car companies to continuously upgrade their original cars or develop new models. Demand for automotive molding will only increase. According to “China Automotive Mould Industry Production and Demand Forecast and Transformation and Upgrade Analysis Report” issued by Prospective Industry Research Institute, China’s automotive mould account for about 1/3 of China plastic injection molding industry’s market share, according to statistics of National Bureau of Statistics, 2017. Sales revenue of automotive mould in China is 266.342 billion yuan. According to this calculation, scale of China's automotive mould market reached 88.8 billion yuan in 2017. It is expected that scale of automotive mould industry will continue to expand in 2018, and market size will exceed 90 billion yuan. In the future, with further acceleration of automobile replacement speed, automotive molding will usher in a larger development space, and development prospects are worth looking forward to.
- Lightweight of automobiles is trend of times, and prospects for plastic injection molding are good.
However, as far as current domestic development status is concerned, China's plastic injection molding account for less than 40% of the total, far below foreign level. However, lightweight of automobiles is an inevitable trend. For example, in October 2016, “Energy Saving and New Energy Technology Vehicle Roadmap” issued by China Automotive Engineering Society predicted that overall vehicle quality will be 40% less than that in 2015 by 2030. It can be seen that under trend of China's automobile lightweighting, there is still huge room for development of china plastic injection molding.
Many domestic enterprises are promoting development of plastic injection molding. For example, “large-scale composite tailgate mold” developed by Kunshan Yinbaoshan New Technology Co., Ltd. replaces metal tailgate inner plate with hot-pressed SMC automobile tailgate inner panel, uses plastic instead of steel to realize lightweight of automobile; “automobile wheel cover injection mold” of Ningbo Far East Mould Co., Ltd. is used to produce thin-walled automobile wheel cover products. Wall thickness of parts is only 1.0mm, compared with traditional wall thickness (1.6- 1.8mm), it can greatly increase level of light weight. It is worth mentioning that lightweight of interior and exterior of car is an important part for lightweight of car. Lightweight of interior and exterior trim can not only reduce energy consumption of the whole car, but more importantly, bring improvement of safety and comfort. Therefore, all OEMs attach great importance to lightweight of interior and exterior trim, and plastic injection molding will be widely used in automotive interior and exterior.
Of course, in addition to lightweight of automobiles, with development of vehicle networking technology, degree of motorization and intelligence of automobiles is constantly improving, development of automobiles in the future will be driven by automotive electronics. Technology development of core technologies for core actuators in various electronic control systems, such as injectors, solenoid valves, VVTs, clutches, hydraulic valves, etc., has also put forward higher requirements for auto parts companies and automotive electronic mold companies. Also it will also bring a broader market prospect to China plastic injection molding industry.
