Role of Plastic Injection Molding in the Automotive Industry
Whenever we talk about Automotive Industry, the first thing that automatically comes to our minds is the usage of metal and steel. The automotive industry is related to manufacturing vehicles like cars and trucks, etc. Most parts of automotive vehicles have been made of steel and metallic materials since the establishment of this industry, but now the trend has changed. The automotive industry has started to use plastic materials to produce parts of vehicles. There're many reasons behind the gradual shift from the usage of metal to the usage of plastic materials. The foremost reason why plastic materials are being used in the automotive industry is that they are durable and cost-effective. Estimates show that automobile parts made with plastics cost 50% less than the parts made with metal or steel.
Plastic Automobile parts are not only easy to produce but also offer high fuel efficiency and comfort to the automotive industry customers. Most plastic parts that are used in the automotive industry are produced through an ultramodern process called Plastic Injection Molding. This process has ensured the economical production of plastic automobile parts to exceed customers' expectations.
After building & construction, and Packaging, the Automotive Industry is the third-largest consumer of plastic polymers nowadays. This has put immense pressure on the financial capacity of polymers' producers and increased polymers' demand in the market. In this article, you'll learn what are the expected changes in plastic materials usage in the upcoming days and how electric vehicles have impacted it.
The current stringent traffic regulations have compelled customers to change their driving habits. Fuel prices are consistently rising with every passing day, which made the customers look for fuel-efficient vehicles. Most drivers like to drive inexpensive and lightweight vehicles nowadays. All these new trends have enhanced the significance of plastic materials by many folds. Automotive industries are now producing fuel-efficient, economical, and less heavy vehicles by using plastic automobile parts instead of their metallic counterparts. Vehicles' parts made with plastic materials are fuel-efficient, eco-friendly, and, more importantly, durable, long-lasting, and lightweight. The rising usage of plastic materials is discouraging the use of metallic and steel in building vehicles.
With the evolution of Plastic Injection Molding, the Automotive Industry has built a standard automobile with almost 30000 automotive parts, among which 33% are made with plastic materials. If we stay with facts and figures, approximately 39 different types of plastic materials and polymers are used in the production of automotive plastic parts. Most plastic materials that are used to build these parts are composites of the following polymers:
● PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
