The injection molding process is categorized into three types namely organic rubber injection, liquid injection molding, and thermoplastic rubber. Organic rubber injection offers benefits such as elimination of operator placement of pre-forms, easy flow into the cavities owing to decreased viscosity of materials, and quicker cycle times than compression and transfer molding. Liquid injection molding offers benefits such as reduced contamination, optimized cycle times, biocompatibility, inertness and stability, flexibility, and superior heat resistance. The features offered by thermoplastic rubber include simplified processing, and recyclable scraps and parts.
Asia-Pacific generated the highest revenue in the rubber molding market in 2018, and is expected to lead the global market throughout the forecast period.
