Polyamide Market by Application (Engineering Plastics, Fiber), Type (PA 6, PA 66, Bio-based & Specialty Polyamides), and Region (Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, South America) - Global forecast to 2021
“The global polyamide market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021”
The global polyamide market is estimated at USD 25.14 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 30.76 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021. The applications of polyamide in the automotive sector have increased significantly. High demand of polyamide parts from the automotive industry propels the growth of the polyamide market. Polyamide is used in the electrical & electronics application segment in various forms, starting from varnishes to insulation and from coating to casings of equipment. China is a leading consumer of domestically produced and imported polyamides. China has been a driver for the rapid growth in last couple of decades, globally. However, it is now showing an early sign of relative economic slowdown. Its GDP annual growth rate was 6.7% in the first quarter of 2016, which was the lowest in the last six years. This will adversely impact polyamide market and could impede the continued investments and expansion in the polyamide market for a few years.
“PA 6 is the largest type segment of the global polyamide market”
The PA 6 segment contributed the largest share in 2016 and is projected to be the largest segment in the polyamide market, by type, from 2016 to 2021. PA 6 is used to form molded products. It has specific applications, such as manufacturing of toy cars, gun frames, and bristle brushes.
“Fiber application is the fastest-growing application in the global polyamide market during the forecast period”
The fiber segment is the fastest-growing application segment of the global polyamide market. Polyamide fibers are mainly used in artificial leather and ropes, carpets, fishing nets, and packaging materials. Textile made with polyamide fibers offer good strength, quality, and durability and can be used in swimwear and outdoor garments.
“Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing polyamide market during 2016 to 2021”
Asia-Pacific dominated the polyamide market in 2016, with increased usage across industries such as automotive, consumer goods, electrical & electronic, building & construction, and textiles. There has been a rise in the demand for polyamide in recent years due to large-scale investments in automobile sector, where it is widely used. Asia-Pacific has experienced a rise in demand for luxury cars due to the increase in purchasing power of consumers, which has led to increased polyamide consumption in this region. Polyamide is increasingly being used to replace metal with plastic in automobiles, which has led to a surge in its demand in this segment.
