Polyamide Market
Polyamide Market


The global polyamide market was stood at USD 30 billion and is expected to showcase growth of around 6% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Over the years, polyamides have made strong uphold in the large number of industries owing to its characteristics like good chemical and temperature resistance; provide strength, toughness, and stiffness; and resist wear and abrasion. Industries like automobile including transportation, electrical & electronics, and packaging are some of the major consumers of polyamides owing to its industry preferred properties like lower weight couple with help in reducing the cost without compromising on quality. In automobile industry, polyamide is used mainly as engineered plastics in underhood parts, intake manifold, fuel system, airbag container, and it is also used in exterior parts. The use of polyamide in automobile helps in cost cutting, weight reduction, and higher fuel efficiency. Moreover, polyamides are widely used in electrical & electronics industry owing to its excellent thermal, electrical, mechanical properties. Thus, increasing investment in electrical & electronics industry to improve the transmission & distribution of power and increasing semiconductor production boost the demand of polyamide. However, currently, most the polyamide is derived using crude-oil based raw materials owing to which price of polyamide raw materials is highly dependent on international crude-oil market, which is highly fluctuating, thus manufactures finds difficulty in maintaining profit margins.
