Nylon 66 Market - Overview

Nylon 66 is a major type of Nylon or polyamide resins, which is popular due to its durability, ductility, high strength, and resistance to high temperatures.It is used for producing engineering thermoplastic compounds and fiber yarns.

Nylon 66 is extensively utilized in metal replacement applications.

Nylon synthesized by poly-condensation of hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid yields Nylon 66.Nylon 66 has higher heat resistance and superior mechanical properties compared to Nylon 6.

It can be reinforced with impact modifiers, fibers, internal lubricants, and fillers to improve its physical properties such as stiffness, ductility, strength, friction properties, and wear resistance.Nylon 66 is widely used in various machine parts, tires, ball-bearing cages, carpet fibers, electro-insulating materials, pipes, conveyor belts, airbags, ropes, and apparels.

Good appearance, high resistance to temperature and chemicals, processing flexibility, and toughness make Nylon 66 suitable for several engineering applications. Nylon 66 is extensively used in applications such as industrial, automotive, consumer goods, and electronics & electrical.

Among grades, the resin grade segment is anticipated to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. Resin-grade Nylon 66 enhances performance characteristics of glass fibers, which makes them suitable for producing lightweight components of car engines and electric components.

Among applications, the automotive segment held a major share of the market in 2017.This trend is likely to continue during the forecast period.

Moreover, the electrical & electronics segment is projected to expand at a significant CAGR between 2018 and 2026, due to high demand for Nylon 66 in connector manufacturing.

In 2016, BASF and ContiTech Vibration Control developed A3WG10 CR, a specialty Nylon 66 filled with 30% of glass fiber, which was optimized to sustain high mechanical load. It was used to manufacture the world’s first plastic transmission crossbeam in the rear-axle sub-frame of the Mercedez-Benz S-Class model.
