Polyamide -6 (PA6)
is a semi-crystalline polyamide which occur naturally in form of wool, silk among others and can be synthesized artificially by polymerization of caprolacta. Polyamide -6 (PA6) commonly known as Nylon-6 is used in various industries, owing to its properties such as, strength, durability and elasticity. Globally, development of efficient and advance technology, rising demand from electronics and coatings industry, increasing automotive industry across the globe, increasing government initiative across the globe, and higher usage in numerous application sectors such as automotive, electronics & electrical, packaging, textiles, and others are the prime growth drivers of global polyamide-6 market. In addition, rising popularity of bio-based polyamide, increase in adoption of polyamide-6 for application in newer industrial verticals, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global polyamide-6 market. However, higher cost of the research and development, fluctuating prices and supply of crude oil, and complex manufacturing process are the key restraints for global polyamide-6 market.
