Market Dynamics

  • The increasing demand for Nylon 6 from the automotive industry is a primary driver for the market. Nylon 6 fibers are extensively used in the automotive industry, including tire cords, engine covers, gears, and bearings, because of their intrinsic properties like high tensile strength, durability, and fatigue resistance.

  • As the automotive sector is flourishing worldwide, it will increase the demand for Nylon 6 which in turn will boost the global caprolactam market.

  • The volatility in raw material prices can hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Industry Analysis

  • The global caprolactam market report segments the market by end product and application. The End-product segment includes Nylon 6 fibers, Nylon 6 resins, and others. Nylon 6 fiber is the significant segment in this category. Nylon 6 fibers are extensively used in the production of textiles, carpets, industrial yarns, and so on owing to their superior chemical as well as physical properties such as lightweight and high tensile strength.

  • The market for Nylon 6 fibers is primarily driven by its applications in the textiles and carpet industry. The textile industry is anticipated to witness high growth in the coming years.

  • The value of the global textile mills market totaled 667.5 billion in 2015, and it is estimated to reach 842.6 billion by 2020. Thus, the high growth in the textile industry will continue to augur the demand for Nylon 6 fibers during the forecast period.

Geographical Share
