Additionally, these products are manufactured using advanced technology and quality material to provide improved durability and high tensile strength. Furthermore, this rubber molding is adopted by the above-mentioned major industries to make rubber products. Among all the above-mentioned applications, the automotive industry is adopting rubber molding more in the manufacturing of tires, and satisfying the growing demand for vehicles, thereby boost the rubber molding market growth. The rise in automobile production further assists in the growth of the rubber molding industry. On the other hand, adoption of lightweight materials in vehicles, and increasing the use of electric vehicles are acting as the growth-promoting factors of the rubber molding market share. 

Geography - Segment Analysis

APAC dominated the rubber molding market with a share of more than 36%, followed by North America and Europe. The share of APAC is mainly influenced by the developing nations namely China and India. According to OICA, APAC automotive sales witnessed a growth of over 6.52% during 2012-2018, with South East Asian countries having huge potential to grow. Thus, the rise in demand for automobiles in Asian countries coupled with the increasing vehicle production in the APAC region is impacting the APAC rubber molding market revenue. 

Drivers – Rubber Molding Industry Outlook

  • Growing demand for lightweight products in vehicles
Rising adoption of lightweight products to replace metal products in vehicle production to improve the durability and also to reduce the weight and cost of the vehicle. Liquid silicone rubber is one of the versatile material which is mainly used in molding applications. Owing to its flexibility this rubber is suitable for gaskets, lenses, connectors, and provides excellent thermal, chemical, and electrical resistance.   In APAC, automobile manufacturers are experiencing the severe impact of fuel mileage regulations. In order to meet those higher mileage standards, automakers are focusing on preparing lighter cars.  For that purpose, the carmakers are choosing a durable, strong, and ultralight material instead of high-strength steel and aluminum. For instance, in September 2018, a CRIDER was redesigned with a fuel mileage of 4.9L/100km to meet Chinese fuel mileage regulations for 2020. 

  • Technological advancements – Injection molding
Injection molding supports cost-effective production of identical parts. The advanced technologies of injection moulding machine are utilizing rubber materials to produce many packaging products such as toys, caps for water bottles, home goods, components for cars and airplanes, appliances, TVs, electronic parts and medical products. For this, they are using resin molds to make specific molds of the above-mentioned objects. Organic rubber injection is beneficial as it eliminates operator placement of pre-forms and the decreased viscosity of rubber allow easy flow into the cavities. This is because, the machine is equipped with solenoid valves that control the direction of the hydraulic flow of fluids. In addition to this, liquid injection molding reduces contamination and provide enhanced cycle times, biocompatibility, flexibility, inertness, stability and superior heat resistance. 

Challenges – Rubber Molding Market

  • Constraining factors involved in the rubber molding process
Shrinkage of the cured component, mold flash, porosity due to uneven curing, flow marks, surface delamination, short shot, warping, burn marks, set-up efficiency is the list of challenges need to rectified to enjoy the perfect rubber compression molding process. This shrinkage occurs due to the difference in expansion coefficients of mold and component. Whereas incomplete curing resulted in porosity. The fault on the mold surface results in flow marks which leads to a fault in the flow direction.  All these glitches may decrease the growth of the rubber molding market size. 
Market Landscape

Product launches, acquisitions, and Technology launches are key strategies adopted by players in the rubber molding market.
