Report Overview

The global extrusion machinery market size was valued at USD 8.33 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% over the forecast period. Growing demand for plastic and metal products and high investment in the construction industry is likely to be the key drivers for market growth over the forecast period. The well-established players in the market have been concentrating on cost cutting to achieve economies of scale as the COVID-19-induced crisis has hampered their economic growth and reduced their discretionary expenditure. The pandemic has resulted in global unemployment, risen inflation rate, and increased interest rates on loans. These macroeconomic variables have slowed industrial expansions, thereby impacting the growth of the market for extrusion machinery during the forecast period.

U.S. extrusion machinery market size, by material, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The automotive industry undergone a stagnant phase due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, the advent of electric vehicles is likely to disrupt the automotive industry with OEM companies such as Ford, General Motors, and Chevrolet launching or planning to launch electric vehicle models. The growing EV industry is estimated to increase the demand for aluminum-extruded parts and in turn, is likely to boost the market growth for extruders.

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the U.S., the manufacturing sector of the country contributed a share of 10.8% to its GDP in 2020. The growth of the manufacturing sector in the country is likely to fuel the demand for extrusion machinery used in the automotive, consumer goods, and packaging industries during the projected timeframe.

Rising fuel prices have triggered the requirement for fuel-efficient vehicles across the globe. Extruded products are most widely utilized in the automotive industry owing to their high strength-to-weight ratio. Growing environmental concerns, along with the imposition of stringent regulations regarding pollution control, have forced automobile manufacturers to enhance their technologies and develop vehicles with low pollution.

Factors such as lightweight, increased corrosion resistance, high tensile strength, easy moldability, and high-temperature endurance lead to the increased adoption of extruded plastics in the automotive industry. Moreover, the rising production of electric vehicles in the U.S. is also projected to increase the demand for extruded products in the country. This, in turn, is anticipated to contribute to the demand for extrusion machinery over the forecast period.

Material Insights

The plastic material segment led the market and accounted for 76.9% of the global revenue share in 2022. Plastic materials are extensively used in the extrusion process owing to their ability to be formed into complex shapes and their relative ease compared to metals or ceramics.

Plastic extruded parts provide a solution for high-volume and cost-efficiency. The recent trend of light-weight material in the automotive industry to enhance fuel efficiency has resulted in increased use of plastic extruded parts. Furthermore, the growing adoption of extruded products in the packaging industry is projected to drive the market of extrusion machinery over the forecast period.

The metal material segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period. Metal extrusion is used to produce numerous products including rods, bars, pipes, channels, square tubes, rectangular tubes, and I-beams. In addition, metal extrusion has a wide range of applications in the production of consumer goods including furniture, refrigerators & freezers, toys, sporting & athletic goods, and other major appliances.

Other materials include rubber and ceramic. Commonly used rubber materials for the extrusion process include butyl rubber, nitrile rubber, EPDM rubber, neoprene, viton, silicone, and polyisoprene. Growing demand for rubber-extruded products in the automotive and transportation, consumer goods, and construction industries is projected to drive the demand for the rubber extrusion machinery market over the forecast period.

Type Insights

The single-screw segment led the market and accounted for 63.2% of the global revenue share in 2022 as they offer continuous output, compact design, low noise emission, low cost, and easy operation. Single screw extruders are mainly used in plastic forming. Thermoplastics are the largest group of plastic materials extruded through single screw extruders.

Single screw extruders have a wide range of applications in the production of numerous products including rubber sheets for conveyors, automobile tires, plastic film/sheet, cling films, thermal insulation board, food storage bags, rotor blades for wind turbines, window frames, weather stripping, house siding, pipe, and tubes.

The demand for twin-screw is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period. Twin-screw extrusion machinery has a high level of process flexibility along with the capability to handle numerous processes including mixing, melting, cooking, cooling, and venting. This machinery is highly energy-efficient as it has about 30% lower power consumption than a single screw extruder.

Twin screw extrusion machinery offers numerous advantages such as excellent compounding ability, easy material feeding, excellent exhaust ability, and high productivity. The above-mentioned factors are projected to drive the demand for twin-screw extrusion machinery over the forecast period.

End-use Insights

The construction segment led the market and accounted for 31.7% of the global revenue share in 2022. The growth of the construction industry has resulted in an increased demand for extruded products including window frames, curtain walling, door frames, roofing & exterior claddings, canopies, space frame systems, and arches, thereby driving the demand for extrusion machinery in the construction industry.

Extrusion machinery has a wide variety of applications in the production of numerous consumer goods such as televisions, computers, lighting, refrigerators, music players, ladders, toys, furniture, bottles, sporting goods, pet accessories, and containers. In the past few years, most of the traditional materials such as glass, wood, and metal have been replaced by high-quality plastics, thereby augmenting the demand for plastic extrusion machinery.

Global extrusion machinery market share, by end-use, 2022 (%)

The packaging segment is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period. Increasing demand for processed food, consumer goods, and beverages is a major factor driving the packaging industry.
