Blow Molding Benefits from the Eco-Trend

The global blow molding market will grow by 6% this year. The current market volume amounts to around 565 million euros. A similar growth can be seen in blow molding machines (+ 5.3%). Overall, the world market will keep its momentum in the next few years, thanks to rising global income and urbanisation, which in turn cause an increase in consumer spending.

USA is Speeding Up

Blow molding is a manufacturing process by which hollow plastic parts are made from thermoplastic materials. Blow molding is one of the injection molding processes. North America has been able to significantly increase its growth over the past few years (8.0%), thanks to a change in consumer behaviour that calls for sustainable types of packaging. Growth in India was even stronger at 9.2%. Drinks, food and household applications were the main drivers there. Southeast Asia & China recorded stable growth in 2018, with growth in beverage packaging also being a focus here. Despite challenging market conditions and continuing debates on the regulation of plastics, Europe remains the largest blow molding market with a market volume of €116 million and a continued growth of + 5.8%. Only Latin America was not quite able to achieve its predicted high level of growth, due mainly to the region’s political instability, especially in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, which represent the region’s largest markets. Consumers there opted for smaller soft drink packaging, which increased the sale of blow molds. Overall, the region reported a growth of 6.4% for 2018.

Beverage Segment Dominates the Market

Beverage bottles hold the largest market segment by far, at 52.7% of the market. Both beverage bottles and the food market (the second largest segment at 16.3%) continue to show high growth rates. These markets are predicted to increase by 6.7% and 6.5% annually until 2022. This growth is caused by a growing middle class, globally increasing urbanisation and higher incomes.

Blow Molding Machines: Southeast Asia is Catching Up Fast

Europe is the largest market for blow molding machines, closely followed by China and Taiwan. However, Europe reported a significantly more dynamic growth (8.7%) than China and Taiwan (3.0%). Above all, the South and Southeast Asian economic region is on fast lane in this segment, with growth of 10.2% in recent years, and is putting pressure on the major markets such as Europe, China and North America.

Global Flooring Market Benefits from Renovation Activity

The global flooring market will grow by 4.3% annually over the next few years. Sales are predicted to grow by 2.4% until 2022, as shown in a study by Interconnection Consulting. In total, over 12 billion square meters of flooring were sold globally in the key markets.

China on the Fast Lane

The market is driven mainly by the renovation sector, which is seeing more growth globally (+ 2.5% annually until 2022) than the new construction sector. In terms of sales, China has become the world’s largest flooring market in recent years and is now more than twice the size of the previously dominant US market. Almost half of all global sales are made in the Chinese market. Up to now, the US remains the market with the largest total revenue, but China will soon catch up here too, as the forecasts show. There are some reasons for the discrepancy between the US and China, explains Jan Hudak, the author of the study: “On the one hand are the different material preferences, then the price sensitivity which is more pronounced in China than in the USA and of course the different price level in the two countries”.

Russia’s Renaissance

The European market is very heterogeneous in terms of growth prospects. While Eastern and Central Europe show relatively dynamic growth, Western Europe is predicted to have only very low growth rates. Eastern European growth is based on a growth spurt in Russia, which is expected by Interconnection. This is mainly due to an increase in renovation activity, whereby price sensitivity plays an important role in both Russia and China, leading to a preference for cheap soil types.
