Single cavity molds are designed to produce one part per cycle.  They are a cost-effective approach when part volumes are low as they are less expensive to build.  They also have a shorter lead time.  The disadvantage is a higher piece part cost in molding production.

Multi-cavity molds produce more parts per cycle.  The major advantages are increased capacity and lower piece part costs as more parts can be produced within a comparable cycle time.
