Polyamides are characterized by amide groups (CONH) and include a range of types such as PA66, PA4/6, PA6, PA6/12, PA12 and others.It is used in the manufacture of fiber and film and is also available as a molding compound.

Polyamides are the biggest family of engineering plastics, with a wide range of applications.It is often molded into fibers that are later used for yarns and monofilaments.

Normally, polyamides are highly resistant to abrasion and wear, and they typically have high mechanical properties even at high temperatures, low permeability to gases and good chemical resistance.

In 2017, the global polyamide market witnessed significant growth due to a number of factors such as low crude oil prices and increasing demand from various end users in sectors such as such as automotive, construction, electronics and fabrics.These factors, along with high and increasing demand in China for polyamides due to higher demand for engineering plastics in automotive and construction, are creating opportunities for polyamide manufacturers worldwide.

The demand for polyamides is high, particularly in the automotive segment, and leading manufacturers continue to benefit from research and development strategies that create additional value and increase market demand.

The global polyamide market is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED throughout the forecast period (2018 to 2023) in terms of value.Market growth is supported by new applications that are being developed to improve conventional metal designs.

This factor is particularly relevant in the automotive industry, where polyamides are used for improved fuel efficiency, styling, durability and safety performance.Polyamides are usually the ideal polymer in automotive applications,where heat endurance, mechanical durability, and fuel and oil resistance are of the utmost importance.

In the automotive industry, structural and under-the-hood applications such as engine oil pans, engine mounts, strut mounts and transmission oil pans are prominent examples of parts now being made of polyamide compounds.

The report includes polyamides in terms of types, such as PA6, PA66 and bio-based and specialty polyamides such as PA11, PA12, PA4/6, PA6/10, PA6/12, PPA (polyphthalamide) and several other types of polyamides.While the polyamide market has reached maturity in the fiber market, it has seen considerable technological advances in the films and engineering plastics segment.

The demand for polyamide resins, mostly PA6 and PA66, in the manufacture of engineering plastics is likely to grow at a significant rate.The key suppliers of PA6 resin are BASF SE, DSM Engineering Plastics BV and Lanxess AG.

PA66 resin is manufactured by DuPont, Solvay (the former Rhodia SA) and BASF SE.

PA6 and PA66 are the most important types of polyamides. These polyamides are increasingly used in the manufacture of engineering plastics, filaments and fibers, which are ultimately used in industrial filaments, carpet and staple fibers due to advantages such as tearing and abrasion resistance coupled with shape stability and high elasticity.

In 2017, polyamide fibers accounted for a market share of REDACTED of the total revenue of synthetic fibers manufactured globally.The synthetic fibers market is dominated by polyester fibers with a market share of REDACTED.

Polyamide fibers are witnessing robust competition from polyesters in various applications as polyesters penetrate all segments of the textile market and cost less to manufacture than polyamides.
