Polyamide Market Size is projected to reach USD 40 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.0%: Straits Research


The global polyamide market size was valued at USD 32 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow to a value of USD 40 billion in 2030, registering a CAGR of 3.0%. China will have the largest sub-segmental growth in the region, with an estimated value of USD 6,203 million in 2021.

New York, United States, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Polyamide is a long-chain multi-unit molecule that is linked together with amide groups. Amide groups have a chemical composition of CO-NH. Polyamide is formed in natural and artificial states. Examples of naturally occurring polyamides are proteins such as silk and wool, while examples of artificial polyamides include nylons, aramids, and sodium poly aspartate.

Rising Demand from Umpteen Industries to Augment Value

The automotive sector is fairly consolidated, with 49% of the industry being occupied by the dominant player such as Ford, GM, Volkswagen, and Toyota. Integration of Polyamide in the automotive sector towards bearing, bushings, wire harness connectors, oil containers, cylinder head covers, and fuse boxes will increase the value of the global polyamide market growth. Additionally, rising demand from the sector of electrical and electronics manufacturers, garments, and others will further increase the market’s footprint.

Polyamide is also integrated within the electronic and electric sector in manufacturing PCBs and miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). They are also heavily used in cables and wirings, connectors, contractors, and low voltage switch gears, among others. Polyamide also contains a robust set of attributes such as good process ability, thin walls, laser marking ability, lower flammability, higher resistance to stiffness and toughness, higher heat distortion temperature, excellent flow characteristics, and a shorter injection cycle time which make them highly accessible within a wide range of applications. Polyamide is also used within the garment industry and is heavily used for manufacturing sportswear and loungewear.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Market

The global pandemic slowed down the growth of the global polyamide market due to disruption in the supply chains and constant nationwide lockdowns. Demand for PA 6 and PA 66 was lowered as production costs were raised due to fewer workforces being optimized due to the pandemic and increasing restrictions on the general population. Due to a fragmented transport sector, the pharmaceutical and consumer goods sector was affected owing to a huge demand-supply cycle.

As the tenure of the pandemic moved on, the competitive landscape of the market changed as companies began investing in developed regions. Investments towards the R&D departments to improve the product offerings. Government bodies worldwide further choose to support the market’s growth by incentivizing middle-class income groups.
