Global Caprolactam Market Analysis, Global Size, Share, Demand, Opportunities And Forecast To 2025

Press Release

Caprolactam is a cyclic amide or lactam of caproic acid which is colorless organic compound and widely used as a synthetic polymer. Caprolactam manufactured from three different sources, include cyclohexane, phenol, and toluene. The nylon made from caprolactam is a high-performance plastic.

According to BlueWeave Consulting, the Global Caprolactam Market is projected to exhibit significant growth during 2019-2025. Owing to their preferred properties like high strength, dimensional stability, high creep resistance, and chemical resistance. The growth attributed to augmented usage of these products in various industries such as Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Industrial & Machinery, Wire & Cable, and Carpet Filament. Increasing disposable income of consumers and advancement of technologies to manufacture lightweight vehicle will fuel the demand of nylon 6 which will lead to the massive growth of caprolactam market in next five years. More than 60% of caprolactam is consumed in the production of nylon fibers in the textile industry, for carpet and industrial yarns and also utilized in engineering resins and films across the globe.

Growing demand for engineering plastics and films in manufacturing of numerous automotive parts including engine covers, gears, and bearings owing to their resistance to oils and greases is expected to drive product growth. Technological innovations geared at improving the manufacturing process of caprolactam, in order to minimize the production of ammonium sulfate as it is hazardous to the environment, is anticipated to have a positive impact on the product demand. A rise in the fabrics industry will increase the growth opportunities for the market. Other than this, the growing use of nylon 6 in engineering plastics and films, floor coverings, and in the production of industrial yarns will push the sales in the coming years.
