The European Caprolactam Market Projected to Reach 1 Million Tons by 2023

According to a recently published report about the European caprolactam market, it was equal to 752 thousand tons in 2013. The largest country market within the region was Germany, which in 2013 accounted for a share of 32% of the total in volume terms. Until 2023, the European market is forecast to reach 1 million tons, thus growing at a CAGR of about 1.1% per annum in the period 2018-2023. This is a slight slowdown, compared to the growth at a CAGR of around 5.8% per year, registered in 2013-2017.

The analytical research projects that the European production of caprolactam is likely to grow to around 1.1 million tons in the medium term. Downwards dynamics of the overall installed production capacities are also expected. However, the annual average utilization rates in the region are expected to remain relatively flat in the next few years. In addition, the market is forecast to remain relatively unbalanced in terms of supply and demand, also showing mixed dynamics in the medium term.

During the last several years, the development of the automobile industry is one of the major factors, driving the global caprolactam market. This is due to the variety of applications of nylon 6 in different automotive parts such as door handles, air bag containers, radiator grilles, relay boxes, air intake manifold and engine covers, among others. Furthermore, automakers are focusing on light weighting of vehicles in order to improve fuel efficiency and performance. Therefore, metallic parts of automobile are being rapidly replaced by nylon 6 due to high temperature and chemical resistance. In addition, innovation in the field of electronics along with increasing consumption of smart phones, tablets, laptops and TVs has resulted in driving demand for engineering plastics, subsequently driving the growth of the global caprolactam market. The growing demand for convenience food across the globe is also a major contributor for the demand growth for specialty films for packing. Since nylon 6 is a key constituent in specialty films, the latter is driving the global caprolactam market.

When it comes to corporate restructurings, most of the large companies within the chemical industry have been following the principle “small is better than big” over the past few years. Renown companies such as Dow Chemicals, BASF, Bayer among others have been looking at divesting as a strategic tool, allowing them to focus on specific businesses. Particularly on the caprolactam market, Honeywell International Inc. completed the spin-off of its Resins and Chemicals business. As of 2016, the new publicly traded company AdvanSix Inc. has been focused on the manufacture of nylon 6 and caprolactam.
