Caprolactam is an important polymer having host of applications across
different industries. Caprolactam is the key raw material for nylon 6.
Caprolactam is used to produce nylon 6 fibers and resins that are used
extensively in various applications. The growing demand of nylon 6 in
engineering and automobile applications as well as rapid economic growth in
Asia Pacific is expected to remain the major driving force for the caprolactam
market. Volatile raw material prices are expected to be a key challenge for
Nylon 6 fibers dominated the consumption of caprolactam and accounted for over
66% of total demand in 2012. Superior chemical as well as physical
characteristics such as light weight and high tensile strength, nylon 6 fibers
have become materials of choice in various textile and carpets application.
The use of caprolactam in nylon 6 resin production employed in engineering
plastics and electronic applications is anticipated to be the major growth
market over the next few years. Similar surge in demand is expected to be
witnessed from industrial yarn applications where nylon 6 fibers are used as
tire cords for enhanced wear resistance and high strength characteristics.
Asia Pacific accounted for about 51% of the total caprolactam market in 2012,
followed by Europe and North America. Asia Pacific is also expected to be the
fastest growing regional market in terms of both caprolactam consumption and
production. This can be attributed to the growing economies in this region.
Skilled labor, cheap availability of raw materials, equipments, and land has
resulted in Asia Pacific emerging as a key destination for caprolactam
producers. Recently various manufacturers have concentrated on capacity
expansion in Asia Pacific to increase their production capacities. Europe is
the other major region where caprolactam consumption was very strong and is
expected to grow in demand with a CAGR of about 6.4% in terms of volume from
2013 and 2019.
