August 09, 2022 | Chemicals & Materials

The global nylon market size is expected to witness strong growth by reaching USD 30.25 billion by 2029. Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled “Nylon Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Nylon 6 {Resin & Fiber}, Nylon 6,6 {Resin & Fiber}), By Application (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Appliances, Film & Coating, Wire & Cable, Consumer, Industrial & Machinery, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029” observes that the market size in 2021 stood at USD 22.08 billion and touched USD 22.83 billion in 2022. The market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period. Robust demand for the material from several industries and rapidly evolving 3D printing technology are likely to fuel market progress.

INVISTS Plans Investment of PA Production Plant to Elevate Brand Image

INVISTS Plans undertook an investment to transform the PA production plant’s logistics and production process in June 2022. The company estimates to finish the plant’s construction by 2024. This strategy may allow the company to enhance its production quality and elevate its brand image.

Reduced Demand from the Automotive Industry Hampered the Industry’s Growth

The market was negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to reduced demand for the material in the automotive sector. The closure of manufacturing facilities resulted in a huge raw material shortage. Further, restrictions on travel and transport disrupted supply chains. However, lockdown relaxations enabled manufacturers to continue production activities, thereby bolstering the market’s progress. In addition, rapid industrial automation, sanitization, and reduced capacities allowed manufacturers to balance costs and recover their losses.
