The market CAGR for high-performance polyamides is being propelled by a rise in the need for lightweight and fuel-efficient materials across a number of sectors, including the automotive, aerospace, and electronics industries. Because of their superior mechanical qualities and resistance to heat and chemicals, high-performance polyamides like nylon 6,6 and polyphthalamide (PPA) are frequently utilized in the manufacture of automotive components like engine covers, air intake manifolds, and fuel systems. Due to the rising demand for lightweight materials to increase aircraft performance and fuel efficiency, high-performance polyamides are also anticipated to see increased use in the aerospace sector. Additionally, the demand for high-performance materials in electronic components like connections and switches is predicted to increase usage of high-performance polyamides in the electronics sector. In the upcoming years, the market for high-performance polyamides is anticipated to expand due to the rising need for lightweight and fuel-efficient materials.


High performance polyamides are widely used in the manufacture and maintenance of electrical and electronic components such as circuit insulation boards, wear strips and chain guards, wire and cable insulation, connections in mobile phones, electronic test components, and others. As a result, the increased demand for high performance polyamides in the  electrical and electronics sector is moving the industry forward. According to the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), the worldwide Electronics and Information Technology Industry is expected to reach a record US$ 3,175.6 billion by the end of 2021, a 7% rise from 2020. As a result, the expanding electrical and electronics sector is a significant driving driver for the high performance polyamides market.


High performance polyamides are in high demand in a variety of end-use industries, including automotive, electrical and electronics, industrial, medical and health care, and others. This is due to the fact that high performance polyamides are excellent thermoplastic materials with higher tensile strength, superior flow properties, greater dimensional stability, improved chemical resistance, lower water absorption, and greater processing versatility than other thermoplastic materials and metals. As a result, high performance polyamides are favoured over metals and other plastics in car underhood engine parts and engine covers, wire and circuit board insulation, electronic housing & components, and other applications. High performance polyamides' exceptional properties prove to be an excellent driver for the high performance polyamides market.
