Which are the Potential Segments for Thin Wall Containers Market?

As polystyrene can cause critical environmental concerns it has been banned from key countries. The largest share of thin wall containers market is derived solely by polypropylene both in terms of volume and value. This is because of the various benefits attached with its usage such as, heat resistance due to its high melting point, enhanced transparency, high stiffness and food protection by controlling steam.

The injection molding of thin walled containers requires four essential things: maximum acceleration, maximum speed, high injection pressure and maximum precision. Only when these four factors works optimally, high quality parts can be achieved.

The major benefits attached with injection molding technology includes faster production speed, optimal production, low production cost, and uniformity. In comparison, the thermoforming segment is projected to register declining growth, in terms of volume. It is majorly used in manufacturing of polystyrene thin wall products.
