Plastic Welding Equipment Market By Welding Method (Electric Socket, Ultrasonic, Hot Plate, Spin, Hot Gas, Extrusion, Injection, High Frequency, Laser and Others (Induction, Solvent etc.)) - Growth, Share, Opportunities, Competitive Analysis and Forecast 2016 - 2023

Plastic welding refers to joining flexible plastic materials through heat and pressure. Plastic welding uses the base plastic as the fastening material to grip the parts together. This distinguishes plastic welding from other joining processes such as adhesives, seam tape, sewing, or other fasteners. Plastic welding equipment can consistently create airtight, watertight, durable, and abrasion-resistant seals without any joint deterioration.

The technique can be used with a wide range of thermoplastic materials, including the following:

  • Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
  • Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified (PETG)
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPUR)
  • Polyurethane (PU)
  • Low-density polyethylene (LDPE)
  • Others

The overall plastic welding equipment market is highly driven by the ever-rising plastics manufacturing industry. Plastic materials such as PET, PVC, PP, and others have replaced conventional materials in a wide range of applications. Some prominent applications include consumer products, automotive parts, electronics, electrical products, and others. Due to the low prices of plastic materials (as compared to their counterparts), the trend is only estimated to rise in the coming years. The plastic welding equipment market is hence projected to continue witnessing robust growth during the forecast period. Another major factor fueling the market growth is the availability of various methods used for plastic welding. This enables the welding of plastic materials in different working environments.

Virtually there are a few factors restraining market growth. One of the major challenges is the limitation of plastic welding methods. Although the overall plastic welding equipment market is driven by the rising plastics manufacturing industry and the availability of a wide array of welding methods, there are significant limitations for each of the welding methods.
