Caprolactam Market Overview by Type, Properties, Production, Industry Demand, Revenue, Growth, Business Opportunities,   Competative Landscape & Restraints, Regional Analysis and Global Forecast 2019-

The global caprolactam market size is estimated to be valued at USD 17.02 billion by 2025.
The rise in the economic prosperity of developing countries such as China and India has led to industrialization, thus, giving an exponential growth to the caprolactam market.

Caprolactam industry is anticipated to increase at the substantial speed, as Caprolactam is producing nylon 6 fibers and resins are used in several applications. Because of the superior chemical and the physical characteristics of compound like high tensile strength and light weight, nylon 6 fibers are becoming the materials of choice in several applications of carpets and textile. Even the fibers are utilized in making tire cords because of the tensile strength, fatigue resistance and durability. Thus, the increase in demand for nylon 6 fibers are continuing to support the Caprolactam market growth.

In the year 2017, the size of global Caprolactam market was accounted at 5,659.0 kilo tons. Increase in the use of Caprolactam for production of resins and nylon 6 fibers for the use in textiles, carpets, engineering films and industrial yarns is the main factor responsible for the global Caprolactam market growth.

Nylon 6 fibers segment is biggest and rapidly growing application of Caprolactam. However, Caprolactam is extensively used in polyamide 6 for the production of washable domestic textiles. Thus, polyamide 6 fabrics are dimensionally smooth and stable. Hence, the applications of polyamide 6 in textile industry are categorized into home furnishings, industrial and apparel. Polyamide fabrics are having the properties like resistance and high elasticity to moths and mildew. Because of the properties, it is useful in stockings, nets, parachutes, sporting garments and female underclothes are fueling the growth of Caprolactam industry.

Developments in technology intended at enhancing the procedure of Caprolactam, for minimizing the manufacture of ammonium sulfate on being toxic to environment, is anticipated to show the optimistic effect on the global Caprolactam market demand. Rise in demand for films and engineering plastics in production of several automotive parts involving gears, bearings and engine covers due to the resistance to greases and oils is projected to fuel the product growth.

Asia Pacific is probable to experience the rapid growth at CAGR on the basis of volume. Hence, increase in the economic wealth of the evolving countries like India and China results in industrialization, offering the growth of global Caprolactam market. However, Asia Pacific is the vital region in Caprolactam industry, with Korea, Taiwan and China gathering the share of around 80% of Asian Demand.

Market of Europe and North America are experiencing the lethargic growth in the coming years. European textile fiber producers are continuously losing the shares of market to Asian competitors and the designers, sourcing the products in China and Asian economies due to the affordable labor costs. Conitnuous increase in the capacity of Chinese production, probability of taxes burden on European imports with the lack of ability of current producers to increase the production of nylon in Western Europe are fueling the shift of end-use industries in Asian regions.

Key players in Caprolactam market growth are BASF SE, Sumitomo Chemical Company Limited, Lanxess AG, China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation and more.
