Asia Pacific Caprolactam Market : Current Business Trends, Size & Growth Opportunities 2019-2025

Author : Ronak Bora | Published Date : 2019-07-04 

Asia Pacific Caprolactam Market will emerge as the fastest growing region which is chiefly driven by increasing number of manufacturing industries in China, India, Japan, and South Korea. Rising automobile & transportation, and textile industry coupled with growing demand of electronic gadgets will augment the demand of caprolactam in the region. Caprolactam Market Size is likely to witness a steady growth from 2017 to 2024 pertaining to high growth in nylon 6 applications in end-use sectors such as automotive, electronics, textiles, packaging, etc.

Caprolactam, is a cyclic amide or lactam of caproic acid. It is a colorless organic compound which is a raw material to nylon 6, an extensively used synthetic polymer. Caprolactam is usually manufactured from three different sources such as cyclohexane, phenol and toluene. The most commonly used raw material to produce caprolactam is cyclohexane via converting it to oximes by using hydroxylammonium sulfate followed by Beckmann rearrangement. The product’s mechanical properties such as light-weight and high strength makes it an aptly endorsed material to produce nylon fiber and resins. The caprolactam manufacturing plant requires less technical complexity coupled with low initial infrastructure investment which will encourage new participants to enter the market. The product industries generally exhibit high degree of forward integration as most of the caprolactam producers are also involved in production of nylon 6 products.

Increasing application of nylon 6 in the form of fiber and resins will spur the market growth in next seven years. Nylon 6 fibers has a myriad end-use application owing to the unique characteristics including light weight, fatigue & heat resistance, and high tensile elastic strength. Various application of nylon 6 fiber including textile, carpets, industrial yarn, etc. is likely to augment the demand of nylon 6 which will further spur the caprolactam market during the forecast spell. The use of nylon resins in automotive industry to manufacture air bags, doors, windows, tire cords, gear, under the hood components, etc. and in electronic industry to manufacture electrical & electronic components will contribute to the product’s market growth. Rising disposable income of consumers and changing technologies to manufacture light weight vehicle owing to their fuel efficiency will upscale the demand of nylon 6 which will lead to humongous growth of caprolactam market in next seven years.

On the basis of grade, the market is diversified as caprolactam and anionic polymerization caprolactam. AP caprolactam is gaining more endorsement pertaining to its low moisture characteristics. This gathered enough substantiation to widen the end-use domain such as blocking agent for isocyanate, processing auxiliary for polyamide film extrusion, impact modifier for melamine coated chipboards and others. Increasing use of AP caprolactam will further spur the product market during forecast period.
