Nylon Industry Report by Regional Category Spend, Price Analysis, Key Demand, and Price Indicators, and Best Buying Practices

The global Nylon market reached a value of about USD 33.03 billion in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 5.7% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of about USD 46.37 billion by 2027.

The global Nylon industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. Nylon is a synthetic polymer employed in various sectors, including automotive, sports, and others driving the market demand. In the industry report, the key demand indicator is the highest category spender by region—Asia Pacific.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

The common name for Nylon is for a set of polyamide-based synthetic polymers (replicating units linked by amide links). It is a kind of material that can be readily spun into fibres, and it is a silk-like thermoplastic that may be melt-processed into fibres, films, or forms. It is often manufactured from petroleum. The Nylon industry report comprises segments by type (Nylon 6, Nylon 6,6), application (Automotive, Film & Coatings, Industrial, Consumers, Electrical & Electronics, Appliances, Wire and Cable) and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America).

Asia Pacific Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

The Asia Pacific holds a significant share in the market due to Infrastructure development and increasing socio-economic trends. Furthermore, favourable rules, labour availability, and government attempts to provide attractive FDI regulations have led to big firms relocating their manufacturing bases to countries like China, India, and Indonesia furthering the market's expansion. Global corporations flock to the Asia Pacific region to build up production and distribution facilities, raising the regional market.

A primary driver for regional market expansion is the availability of low-cost raw materials, labour, and rising consumer purchasing power. Automobile manufacturers employ nylon on a broader scale due to its environmental benefits and advantages, per global emission rules propelling the industry forward. Over the projected period, the electrical & electronics application category is expected to increase significantly. This expansion may be attributed to the extensive range of products used in these applications, including tubes for cables and wirings, connectors, contactors, circuit breakers, and low voltage switch gears. Other factors such as rising disposable incomes, population growth, increased demand for passenger and commercial autos, and booming transportation industry across continents due to increased trade activity are further augmenting the market.

However, the alternatives of the product, such as polypropylene (P.P.), bioabsorbable polymers, para-aramid synthetic fibre, and polyvinylidene fluoride, and their biodegradable nature, is expected to hamper the market growth.

Category Management Studies

Nylon 6, 6 is a hexamethylene diamine and adipic acid-based linear condensation polymer. To make nylon salt, certain proportions of the two chemicals are mixed in a solution. This salt is purified, polymerized, extruded in ribbon form, and chipped into small flakes or pellets. The nylon filaments are created by melting and extruding these flakes or pellets into cold air through a spinneret. The polymer chips are liquefied and pushed to the spinneret in an autoclave. The spinneret is pushed with a hot syrupy fluid. It appears in the form of strands and is the size of the perforations, and the speed with which the fibre is extracted defines the fibre's length. Air is blasted over the threads to cool them. Filament or staple fibres are produced during the drawing process.

Growing Demand for Nylon 6, is Further Driving the Procurement of Nylon

The glossy surface quality and high impact strength of Nylon 6 resin boost demand in the packaging industry, which is growing its use in the production of films. It is used in films and coatings to protect raw materials against corrosion. Furthermore, Nylon 6's aesthetic appeal and ease of processing by extrusion are increasing its demand in the packaging business in Southeast Asian nations such as Indonesia and Vietnam. It is also used extensively in the production of industrial yarns and textiles. Nylon 6 has strong abrasion resistance, high melting point, high tensile strength, and excellent photodegradation resistance. As a result of these features, the material is well-suited for industrial applications such as machine components, electronic equipment, and metallic devices, fueling market expansion. Nylon 6 is a lightweight material that may be used to create parachutes. Nylon is an essential component in the automobile sector since it is used to make hydraulic clutch lines, wheel covers, front-end grilles, and external mirrors, among other things, boosting the market growth. Furthermore, the growing demand for wires and cables in the building and construction industry is expected to drive the nylon market in the forecast future.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
