Rising Automotive Production to Bolster Nylon Market Growth, Opines Fact.MR

by Team Fact.MR

Surging automotive and electronics production to cater to a proliferating consumer demand is projected to propel the global nylon market to grow 1.7X during the forecast period (2019 – 2029). Nylon is employed in the manufacturing of automotive and electrical components that require high tensile strength, heat resistance, and high elasticity. The material offers superior abrasive resistance which positions it as a viable alternative to steel, aluminum, rubber, gunmetal, brass, and bronze. The superior finishing of nylon products even when reinforced makes it a suitable alternative for aesthetically appealing applications. Its compatibility with polyester, spandex, and cotton impels demand from the textiles industry. Nylon 6 and Nylon 66 will provide remunerative growth opportunities for market players during the forecast period.

Key Takeaways of Nylon Market Study

  • Nylon 6 accounts for a majority share of over 60% of the total market value, whereas, nylon 66 offers remunerative growth opportunities with a promising 6.7% CAGR during the forecast.
  • Automotive application will grow 1.6X from 2019 to 2029. This can be attributed to synergetic characteristics of the material for engine parts and internal components of automotive.
  • East Asia is in the vanguard of global sales with a majority share of 57% of the total market revenues. Booming automotive manufacturing in East Asian countries heightens product demand in this region. East Asia will grow 1.8X through 2029.
  • South Asia & Oceania offer the most lucrative growth opportunities with a strong 7% CAGR from 2019 to 2029. Developing economies such as Indonesia are witnessing an impressive spurt in electric vehicle manufacturing that employs nylon for its light weight and high tensile strength.
