Here's example the company(High Precision focused) that I work for.
We have around 500 machines from 5t-400t
Magnesium Injection Molding: NISSEI
Plastic Injection molding Machine:
Sodik: Very High (for Plastic Lens only)
Fanuc: Very High (for Plastic Lens only)
Sumitomo: Precision Requirement relatively High.
JSW: Mid-High (Popular in Japan)
Toyo: Mid (relatively cost competitive)
NISSEI: High-Mid (Sold most all over the world)
Haixing: MIddle-Low, but it's getting better.
Your main customer may prefer particular kind over others.
If you pick machine which is different from customer preference,
you might have hard time during validation process.
While NISSEI is pretty good at developing new technology, other followers have price advantages releasing similar features later.
We lately added Fanuc for Lens production over sodik because their late machine is appealing. So, there's also time and location factors put into account for decision making.
