Polyamide is found both naturally (silk and wool) as well as through synthetic sources like aramid, polyamide 6, and others. It is being increasingly adopted due to artificial polyamide’s characteristics like strong mechanical qualities, wear resistance, chemical resistance, and low gas permeability along with natural polyamide’s eco-friendly characteristics. According to this analysis, the global polyamide market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach ~US$ 50 billion by 2028.

The rising demand for polyamide as a substitute for metals to reduce weight is boosting the demand for polyamide in various end-user industries like electronics & electrical, automotive, consumer goods & appliances, and various other sectors.

The global polyamide market is largely driven by an increase in demand from the construction and coating industries, growing demand from other end-use industries, and the waterproof characteristics of polyamide.

Polyamide is being increasingly adopted in different industries for its waterproof nature and ability to withstand moisture. Waterproof polyamide textiles are being used by several industries to create various goods. Due to its waterproof qualities, it is frequently used to produce athletic and outdoor clothes.

During the projected period, increasing demand for sports apparel, home textile materials, ropes, narrow woven materials, swimsuits, backpacks, and hiking apparel is anticipated to fuel the demand for polyamides.

Increasing demand for substitute products and volatile raw material prices limits the market growth.

The increasing threat from substitute products like polypropylene and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), is anticipated to slow the rate of expansion of the global polyamide market. When compared to its counterpart, PVDF is a non-reactive thermoplastic that possesses finer qualities.

Conversely, polyamide has a lesser degree of elasticity, a higher degree of wear resistance, a tougher surface, and a higher degree of UV resistance. In contrast, polypropylene is easier to handle and has higher elasticity, tensile strength, and smoothness, along with a lower elongation percentage. In recent years, PVF is significantly being used as a replacement for polyamide fishing lines.

Due to supply chain disruptions and nationwide lockdowns, the COVID-19 pandemic hindered the growth of the worldwide polyamide market. As production prices increased as fewer workforces were employed as a result of the pandemic and expanding limitations on the general population, demand for PA6 and PA66 decreased. The consumer goods industries were impacted by a fragmented transportation industry due to a significant demand-supply cycle.

However, with time, businesses started investing in developing regions, changing the market's competitive landscape, and investments were made in the R&D divisions to enhance the product line.

Key Trends by Market Segment

  • By Product: The Polyamide 6 product segment held the largest share of the Global Polyamide Market in 2021
  • PA 6's special qualities make it a suitable product substitution for materials like bronze, gunmetal, steel, brass, aluminum, and plastics, among others. The producers of electrical protection devices are promoting segmental expansion
During the projection period, the demand for polyamide 6 is also estimated to rise as a result of the incorporation of PA 6 for its tensile strength. It is adopted in the premium carpet industry, fishing nets, and travel accessories. To make automobiles lighter and more fuel-efficient, polyamide is used to replace metal parts.

By Application: Automotive application segment held the largest market share in the Global Polyamide Market in 2021.

The increased use of polyamide in place of metal in the automobile industry to create the interior, structural, and technical parts of vehicles can be attributed to the growing demand for polyamide in the industry.

The production of cooling systems, rock valve covers, air intake manifolds, airbag canisters, and structural elements made of glass-reinforced plastic based on polyamides is a significant driver driving the market's expansion.

By Geography: The Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2021 within the total Global Polyamide Market.

The automotive sector has rapidly expanded in recent years, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. The sector has grown as a result of changing socioeconomic patterns.

Major corporations are moving their developed bases to nations like India, China, and Indonesia due to the availability of cheap labor, beneficial regulations, and government efforts to give attractive FDI legislation.
