Global Nylon 6 Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A synthetic polymer made from the monomer 6-aminohexanoic acid, it is used in a variety of applications including fabrics, ropes, and plastics. Nylon 6 is important because it is strong and durable, making it ideal for use in a variety of products.

Standard Nylon 6:

Nylon 6 is a polymer, which is produced from the reaction of phthalic anhydride and hexane. It has high tensile strength and flexural modulus.

Reinforced Nylon 6:

Reinforced nylon 6 is a type of polymer that contains carbon and hydrogen in the same ratio as found in natural rubber. The product has high impact resistance, good elasticity, and low thermal stability. It also has a low melting point which makes it suitable for applications where lower temperatures are desired such as molding and casting.

Application Insights:

The global nylon 6 market is segmented by application into automotive industry, electronics & electrical, packaging industry and others. The automotive application segment accounted for the largest share in 2016 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Automotive applications of nylon include body panels, hoods/bonnets, door panels/tailgates and frames for vehicles.

Nylon has excellent properties such as lightweight; high strength-to-weight ratio; good impact resistance; weather resistance; chemical stability etc., which make it suitable in automotive applications where weight reduction is important. Nylon also finds a wide range of applications in electronic & electrical components owing to its superior mechanical properties such as flexibility, tensile strength & toughness along with excellent dimensional accuracy when compared to other materials used in the same category.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global nylon 6 market in terms of revenue with a share of over 45.0% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth due to the rising demand for automobiles and electronics products, especially from China and India. In addition, increasing construction activities are projected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe wherein nylon 6 accounted for a major share owing to high production volumes generated by well-established automotive and packaging industries located in Germany, France, Italy, U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and textile industries
  • Growing use of nylon 6 in medical implants and prosthetics
  • Rising popularity of nylon 6-based composites for lightweighting applications
  • Proliferation of nanotechnology-enabled products that contain nylon 6 fibers or particles
  • Growing demand for sustainable materials with low environmental impact
