Market Overview

Polyamide 12 Market is anticipated to display a CAGR of 5.23% to accomplish around USD 1,419.2 Million by the culmination of 2024. Polyamide 12 or Nylon 12 is a thermoplastic made from either laurolactam or ω-aminolauric acid, each containing 12 carbon atoms, so the name polyamide 12. Nylon 12 initially became accessible on a semi-commercial level in 1963. With a lower strength of amides than any other commercially offered polyamide, Nylon 12's material features offer outstanding abrasion forbearance. The vital applications of polyamide 12 consists of sports shoes, glasses, interior and exterior designs on automobiles, and permanent antistatic elements such as conveyor belts, electrical housings, and paint spray hoses.

COVID-19 Analysis

The viral infection's global effect has resulted in falling profits for stakeholder companies and considerably reduced global production. The halt in numerous automobile manufacturers' production facilities has led to a steep fall in the supply of tires in the automotive industries has been observed in the coming period. The disruptions in global supply chains have contributed extensively to developing the market share of polyamide 12. The time required to initiate COVID SOPs has also considerably slowed down the production of polyamide 12, the construction of new plants to expand current manufacturing capacities is estimated to restrict the development of the polyamide 12 markets in the forecast period.

Recent Developments

Jan 2021 Ineos Styrolution has declared the first results of the PolySLS project, which is determined on developing a novel energy-saving styrenics-based material for additive manufacturing, otherwise identified as 3D printing. The project has shown meaningful overall energy savings of up to 67% have been accomplished when taking the entire life cycle of a novel styrenic polymer compound into account as associated with traditional polyamide 12 (PA12). A direct energy saving of 25% was attained from the 3D-printing equipment when exploiting the novel styrenics polymer, stemming from lower process temperatures and quicker heating and cooling phases. This also amended the time required for comprehensive printing jobs, with processing times 7.5 % shorter than PA12.

Nov 2020 Evonik Germany's construction work on the principal investing to date by the specialty chemicals corporation at more than USD 473 million is progressing well. The first plant was accomplished on schedule in mid-October and is presently being made to order. Other plants will follow by the first quarter of 2021, with full completion expected in the first half of 2021, a statement said. Evonik will increase its overall capacity for the polymer by more than 50%. Polyamide 12 is an essential part of their unique applications' strategic development. Polyamide 12 is used in attractive growth markets such as gas piping, sports, automotive engineering, and 3D printing.

Oct 2020 AerosUSA is offering its PA 12 highly flexible and PA12-D heavy grade flexible conduits in stock that are ready for delivery. AerosUSA is also revealing a synergistic product to these conduits recognized as the RQMR-Move. The RQMR-Move is a single addition to its conduit clamping systems, allowing greater flexibility at the clamp in continuous vibration and movement usages. The PA12 conduit is very flexible and mass-produced from high grade, mainly devised polyamide 12 materials. This product has been executed in robotic applications requiring constant bending and flexing in the course of manufacturing production processes.

June 2020 Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) and AM Polymers GmbH (AMP), a new German materials start-up business, have entered into a select joint development and commercial business agreement on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) powder product for industrial 3D printing. This partnership offers MCC and AMP an opportunity to expand their product portfolio for 3D printing further. SLS/PBF is a process by which users can achieve complex geometries at a short production lead time. Coupled with good mechanical properties, PBT powder has much lower moisture absorption characteristics than polyamide 12, a common material for SLS and PBF processes. Therefore, MCC and AMP imagine new PBT powder products for industrial applications such as aerospace and automotive. This unique collaboration enables MCC and AMP to accelerate development in 3D printing further.
