Liquid injection molding (LIM) is an industrial fabrication process, generally used to make broad range of products. LIM differs from normal injection molding processes, as it depends upon mechanical mixing rather than impingement mixing by pressure. Mixing process in LIM is mainly focuses on liquid silicon rubber (LSR), fluoro silicon rubber (F-LSR), and similar elastomeric materials. Due to the superior quality of end products with durability, flexibility, accuracy, and tensile strength, the demand for LIM has increased among many producers of rubber parts.
Silicon rubber has the highest demand in medical equipment such as flow control valves, syringe stoppers, and infusion pumps. This drives growth of the liquid injection molding market. Properties such as chemical inertness, ability to withstand high temperature, and electric resistance, make LSR (Liquid Silicon Rubber) a unique raw material in liquid injection molding process, for adoption in many industries such as automotive, electrical & electronics, medical. This in turns, drives the liquid injection molding market growth. High demand for medical equipment and advancement in molding technology are expected to fuel growth of the market for liquid injection molding over the forecast period. Fluctuation in prices of raw materials pose as a major restraint for market growth.
