One of the key advantages associated with the use of hot runner systems is their speed. The cost savings along with part production in lesser amount of time boost the demand for hot runner systems globally. In addition, by using hot runner, costs are greatly reduced due to generation of less waste. Further, hot runner technology qualifies a diversity of augmented process efficiencies, in addition to the ability for extreme precision. An illustration of how precise these systems can be is the electric valve gate. Electric valve gate uses variable pin positioning in 0.001” increments, thereby offering a fundamental level of control to molders. Moreover, hot runner systems when installed properly, deliver faster speeds, lower labor costs, less scrap, a better part quality, increased efficiency, and mass production.

Automotive industry segment to maintain its dominance through 2026

Based on machine type, the automotive industry segment accounted for more than one-third of the total market share and is expected to lead the trail during the estimated period. As one of the most demanding and challenging sectors in plastics, automotive industry demands just-in-time (JIT) production conditions, technological advances, and exclusive customer service. This, in turn, provides opportunities for hot runner system manufacturers to develop injection-molded plastics on a frequent basis. The same segment is also expected to register the fastest CAGR of 8.5% till 2026.

Valve gate hot runner segment to retain its top status by 2026

Based on process type, the valve gate hot runner system contributed to nearly three-fourths of the total market revenue and is anticipated to dominate during 2019–2026. This is attributed to the array of benefits offered by the system such as perfect finishing on the injection point, lower pressure, less shearing of plastic material, and better injection flow. The same segment is also projected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 8.1% throughout the study period.

Asia-Pacific region garnered the major share in 2018

Based on geography, the market across the Asia-Pacific region held the major share in 2018, accounting for two-fifths of the total market. The presence of many small to mid-level manufacturing sectors such as consumer goods, packaging, automotive, and others requiring high quality and complex injection-molded plastic products in economies such as China, and India drive the growth of the segment. The region is also projected to showcase the fastest CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period.
