Long-chain Polyamide Market Trends

  • Increasing use in the automotive industry is driving the market growth

Many automobile components, including as air intake manifolds, rocker covers, radiator end tanks, fuel rails, and electrical connectors, are mostly comprised of polyamides. They exhibit exceptional mechanical strength, toughness, thermal stability, and grease resistance. As the emphasis on vehicle weight reduction to improve performance and efficiency has grown, heavy metals and other materials have been replaced with suitable lightweight materials including PVC, polyamides, and elastomers. The demand for lightweight materials is also supported by the severe rules of regulatory authorities, such as the US Environmental Protection Agency, European Law, and Bharat Stage Emission Standards, to safeguard the environment and lower CO2 emissions. The typical modern automobile has about 100 kg of plastic components. The key elements affecting the rising demand are weight reduction, production improvements (better assembly, integration of parts and systems), and enhanced design freedom.

Numerous industrial products, including hoses, tubes, rollers, and conveyor systems, utilise long-chain polyamides. Since PA 12 complies with USP Class VI, is sterilisation resistant, lightweight, has a wide range of flexibility, is chemically resistant, and is straightforward to create, it is used in many small-diameter medical tubing applications, including interventional cardiology and neurology catheters. In the manufacturing industry, PA 11 is widely used as a barrier layer for air, water, and spray painting hoses. The globalization of the industrial industry is a further factor boosting the growth of the market and rising demand for polyamide components. Over the projection period, potential in Asia-emerging Pacific nations, including India, will probably increase demand for cast elastomers.

Due to its exceptional dimensional stability, fatigue and crack resistance, and chemical and chemical resistance, long-chain polyamides are employed in a wide variety of applications. Furthermore, long-chain polyamides are capable of withstanding strong chemicals and incredibly high temperatures. In order to produce items like rollers, pulleys, conveyor systems, connectors for houses and tubes, and filaments, they are aggressively employed. The primary factor driving the market growth rate is an increase in demand for long-chain polyamide from the electrical and electronics industries in both developed and developing nations. Growing end-user sectors, particularly in developing economies, and expanding long-chain polyamide application areas will both have a direct and positive impact on the market's growth rate. Favorable regulations for using long-chain polyamide, a surge in the demand for lightweight materials from the automotive and transportation sectors, a growing emphasis on technological advancements, and modernization of production methods will all contribute to the market's expansion.Thus, driving the Long-chain Polyamide market revenue.

Long-chain Polyamide Market Segment Insights

Long-chain Polyamide Type Insights

The Long-chain Polyamide market segmentation, based on type, includes PA11, PA12, PA610, PA612, and others. PA12 segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2022. The chemical compound laurolactam, also known as 12-aminolauric acid, is the source of polyamide 12 (PA12). It performs better than other polyamides in terms of its superior impact strength (even at extremely low temperatures), lower melting point, decreased moisture absorption, superior abrasion resistance, excellent chemical resistance, resistance to cracking under stress, higher elongation, lightweight design, and noise and vibration dampening properties. Polyamide 12 offers superior creep resistance than nylon 6/6 while having a lower modulus. The segment is also developing as a result of the rising demand for polyamide 12 in the automobile industry. The shift towards employing bio-based products is expected to provide the market with profitable growth potential.

Long-chain Polyamide End Use Insights

The Long-chain Polyamide market segmentation, based on End Use, includes automotive, electrical & electronics, industrial applications, and others. Industrial applications segment dominated the Long-chain Polyamide market in 2022.Long-chain polyamides are employed in many industrial applications because of their remarkable abrasion resistance, strength, and toughness as well as their low water absorption characteristics. Filaments, houses and tube connectors, conveyor systems, pulleys, rollers, and pulley systems make up the industrial category by application. In addition, the fast industrialization, economic growth, and growing consumer awareness of the advantages of adopting bio-based products are the main drivers of the demand for long-chain polyamides in the industrial sector.
