Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102374 | Status : Ongoing



A polyamide is a macromolecule with repetitive amide linkages i.e., CO-NH-. Polyamides occur both naturally (wool and silk) and artificially (nylons and aramids). Polyamide is a major engineering and high performance thermoplastics class because of its broad range of properties and uses. Exhibiting properties like high temperature and electrical resistance, high durability and tensile strength, and abrasion resistance, polyamides are widely used in textile markets, consumer goods and electrical appliances among others. Growing demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry to provide increased efficiency and design flexibility has paved its way for the growth of polyamide market. Bio-based polyamide is gaining demand in the market owing to its eco-friendly nature.

The key market driver for the global polyamide market is the increase in demand from automotive industries. Due to the rising prices of raw materials in automotive industry, manufacturers are shifting towards polyamides for applications such as coatings and films.
