  • 3 min read

When it comes to scaling up your gummy manufacturing business, it's common for entrepreneurs to feel a sense of unease as they witness the significant investment required to meet growing demand.

But make no mistake: it IS growing.

According to a recent Market Analysis Report from Grand View Research, the cannabis extract industry is expected to have a 20% compound annual growth rate over the next 7 years.

The upshot? The extraction industry alone is set to balloon from a market size value of $4.3B in 2023, to bringing in revenues upward of $15.5B by 2030.


But while the market potential is ever-expanding, some may still feel that it is nonetheless difficult to justify the start-up costs.

In particular, the cost of molds often raises concerns, with some considering them mere accessories rather than essential equipment. 

However, it's important to shift our perspective and recognize the true value that quality gummy molds  bring to the table. 

Today, we will delve into the crucial role of molds in driving profitability and operational efficiency. 

Let's explore how investing in performance molds can yield remarkable returns on investment (ROI) and provide peace of mind.

Cost per Cavity

It's natural to scrutinize the expense of molds, especially when evaluating their impact on the bottom line. 

However, by breaking down the cost per cavity, we can uncover a more accurate picture of their value. 

Consider a mold with 234 cavities, priced at $250. Each cavity effectively costs a mere $1.06.

This means that to justify the investment, you only need to generate a profit of $1.06 from each cavity.

Although it's true that cheaper materials may seem enticing initially, when we examine the savings on a per-cavity basis, we realize they often only equate to the difference of one or two batches.

Profit per Gummy

Let’s put a finer point on that.

Suppose you're making a profit of $0.25 to $0.50 per gummy (a lowball number, to be sure. This can easily be higher – especially if you have your own brand.) 

By filling a your Rose Pro mold just once, you can quickly recover the cost difference between performance materials and cheaper alternatives. 

Fill it twice, and the mold is fully paid for – no further calculations needed. 

This rapid return on investment simply cannot be matched by other equipment.

Considering the pivotal role molds play in your operations, it's paramount to have peace of mind knowing that you're utilizing the  best performance materials available

By investing in quality molds, you can focus your attention on optimizing labor and other operational aspects, knowing that you have the foundation for success in place.
