In recent years, benefiting from the rapid development of industries such as automobiles and building materials, the prospects of the mold market have become increasingly clear, which has led to a substantial increase in the demand for plastic mold steel, showing a good upward trend. Moreover, in the next five years, my country's plastic mold steel industry will still have a large development space and a qualitative leap.
Plastic molds are the main processing tools for manufacturing parts in the industrial sector. They have the advantages of high precision, high complexity, high consistency, and high productivity. They are consumables and have a large amount. With the rise of my country's industry, the mold industry has ushered in rapid development. According to statistics, from 2010 to 2015, the average annual growth rate of the mold industry was about 10%. By 2015, the total sales of molds increased to 174 billion yuan, and the self-matching rate of domestic molds reached over 85%. Plastic mold steel is the steel used to make molds.
Under the background of better and better prospects in the mold market, plastic mold steel has also developed rapidly, and the market demand has increased significantly. According to the characteristics, mold steels are generally divided into four categories, namely, carburized, pre-hardened, age-hardened, and corrosion-resistant. Overall, the demand for various types of die steel has increased significantly, and the future development will continue to improve. It is estimated that between 2016 and 2020, the average annual growth rate of the plastic mold industry will reach at least 7%. However, the development direction of plastic mold steel in my country will change in the future. First of all, with the trend of large-scale mold forming, the demand for large-scale plastic mold steel is expected to increase year by year; secondly, the market's requirements for mold accuracy continue to increase, and plastic mold steel will develop toward high-quality, high-precision, and good stability; finally, China High-grade die steel is becoming more popular, and the demand for plastic die steel and die-casting die steel maintains an upward trend.
