Report Scope:
Micro-molding is a dedicated manufacturing and production process which yields exceptional precision in small components and parts which have micron tolerances.The process starts with creating a mold that has a cavity like the shape of the desired part.

Various types of molds such as resin or thermoplastics are injected at a high speed into the cavity to create the component or part precisely. Micro injection molding is widely used in medical devices, healthcare devices, implants, surgical instruments, various automotive parts, electronic parts, small machine parts and other industries.

This report offers insight on the types of polymers used during the molding process and is segmented by type -
- Polyethylene (PE).
- Polycarbonate (PC).
- Polyether ether ketone (PEEK).
- Others (polyoxymethylene, liquid crystal polymer, polymethylmethacrilate, polyamide).

This micro injection molding market report offers insights on the end-use applications where these parts are used and is segmented by end user, including -
- Medical and healthcare.
- Automotive.
- Telecom fiber optics.
- Micro drive systems and controls.
- Others (aerospace, defense).

The market has been defined by segments and regions and further bifurcated into regions and countries. In addition, the report offers comprehensive factors, including drivers, restraints, challenges and opportunities, which provide an overall picture of global trends and market opportunities.

The global micro injection molding market was valued at REDACTED in 2019 and is estimated to reach REDACTED in 2025, growing with a CAGR of REDACTED during the forecast period.Micro injection molding is an extremely specialized manufacturing process which is used to produce small, highprecision metal and thermoplastic components and parts with micron tolerances.

Micro molding starts with a mold cavity in the structure of the desired part, where resin or thermoplastic is injected with desired speed into the hollow cavity, producing the component at a high speed.

PE, or polyethylene thermoplastic material, is primarily being used for micro injection molding processes, especially in the healthcare segment.Surgeons and doctors use micro injection molded parts made up of PE and micro instruments to perform less-invasive procedures and offer swift recovery timed to patients.

PEEK materials are estimated to be the fastest-growing type for the micro injection molding market. With devices moving toward more complex designs which are compact and offer highprecision, manufacturers are investing in innovation, research and design activities in order to enhance minimally invasive device designs and reduce the size of various parts through micro molding, which is
expected to fuel the demand over the forecast period.

The medical and healthcare segment held the largest market share in 2019 and is expected to be the fastest-growing end user segment during the forecast period.The growing use of advanced medical devices and micro parts for surgery coupled with the increasing trend of minimally invasive surgeries and the trend to offer more comfort to patients with implants and medical devices is fueling market growth during the forecast period.

Additionally, medical components and devices which are manufactured with medical injection molding using durable, reliable medical grade plastic materials which and meet the FDA regulations are becoming more prominent.

Increasing use of micro molded precision parts in the automotive industry is also driving the market.Several types of high-precision plastic micro parts such as interior buttons, switches, clips and washers, micron-tolerance door lock components, gears and encoders for electronic modules, and electric motor components are widely used in the automotive industry.

Due to growing automotive production and sales, there is a rise in demand for precision components such as switches, buttons, clips and knobs, which is further driving the micro injection molding market.

North America dominated the market share in global micro injection molding market with revenues exceeding REDACTED in 2019, followed by the Asia-Pacific region.There is a rise in interest from manufacturers and designers to produce and procure micro-featured, high precision components and parts.

Micro injection molding is capable of manufacturing billions of components and parts with constant and consistent precision. Micro-components are frequently smaller than a distinct of salt.
