As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the world, our analysts are constantly tracking the impact of this rapidly evolving situation on the markets and the consumer purchase behaviours. Thus, our latest estimates and analysis about the current market trends and forecast will exhaustively reflect the effects of this emerging pandemic.
The global nylon market demand reached a volume of about 8.4 million metric tons in 2019. The demand is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% in the forecast period of 2020-2025. It is projected to attain a volume of 10.3 million metric tons by 2025. The automobile industry is significantly supporting the growth of the nylon market. Nylon is used in the production of lightweight vehicles, which is one of the most popular innovations lately. Nylon’s excellent strength and durability have also increased its demand among consumers.
The Asia Pacific is the largest supply market, accounting for almost 60% of the global capacity of the product. It is also the market with the highest demand growth of the product. The region has a capacity of over 5 million metric tons per year. The demand in the Asia Pacific, as well as Latin America, is majorly driven by nylon 6 and nylon 6,6. Asia is the hub of production in the market and is also one of the major importers of the product. However, with the expected increase in capacity, Asia is most likely to reduce its imports in the coming years. China imports a significant volume of the product from Taipei, the United States, and others. Japan also imports a high volume of nylon, and its imports were more than China’s imports in 2018. Japan has become the largest consumer market owing to the growing markets for electronics, automobiles, and appliances, among other industrial sectors.
Europe is also a major exporter of the product and is a major regional nylon market for the product, accounting for over a fifth of the total global capacity of the product. Europe primarily exported to China, the United States, and Turkey in 2018, with the countries account for nearly half the region’s exports. Germany is the largest exporter of nylon, along with the United States, accounting for over 30% of global exports. Belgium is also a leading exporter of the product. Europe also enjoys healthy domestic demand growth for nylon due to the growing end-use industries like film and coatings, consumer goods, and automobiles, among others.
Properties and Applications
Nylon refers to a thermoplastic silky polymer, which has extremely long and dense molecules made up of small and multiple repeated atoms combined. It is quite similar to a metal chain comprising of repeated bonds. Nylon does not refer to a single material or substance. It is actually a term given to an entire family of like material, which is referred to as polyamides.
The types of nylon can be categorised as:
It finds its end-uses in the following segments:
The EMR report also covers the regional nylon markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The market is significantly driven by the automobile industry, which is one of the largest as well as the fastest-growing industries in the world. The increased use of nylon in the production of innovative lightweight vehicles is providing further impetus to the growth of the industry. The nylon market is also supported by the growing electronics industry, which is likely to grow even faster in the coming years due to the increased use of appliances and other electronic machines globally. The demand for nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 is growing at a much faster pace than the other types. The demand for these types is majorly focussed in the Asia Pacific region. The nylon market for automobiles is also thriving in the Asia Pacific region, supporting the demand for the product.
Nylon is witnessing a rising demand due to its durability and strength. Other major factors that are driving the demand for the product include the growing packaging, consumer packaged goods, and coating industries. These industries are growing in almost all the regions and are providing a further push to the nylon market growth.
January 2017- BASF’s (OTCMKTS: BASFY) purchase of Solvay’s nylon 6,6 business for USD 1.8 billion, which was declared in September 2017, was approved by the European Commission.
