Opportunities for polyamide resin in the global composites industry to reach $6.4 billion by 2021


   January 16 2017

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of polyamide resin in the global composites industry looks good with opportunities in the industries of transportation, consumer goods, and electrical/electronics. The polyamide resin market in the global composites industry is expected to reach an estimated $6.4 billion by 2021 and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016 to 2021. The major drivers for the growth of this market are growing demand for thermoplastics with high thermal stability in under-hood applications and increasing focus of automotive OEMs to reduce weight without compromising vehicle performance.

In this market, transportation, consumer goods, and electrical/electronics are the major end use application. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the transportation segment is expected to show above average growth during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021.

Within the polyamide resin in the global composites industry, the transportation segment is expected to remain the largest application by value and volume. Expected increase in global automotive production and increasing demand for high temperature thermoplastics in under-hood applications are the major driving forces that spur growth for this segment over the forecast period.

By product form, short fiber reinforced thermoplastic (SFT) is expected to remain the largest market for polyamide resin consumption due to its demand for small and complex shaped components in the different end use industries.

The Rest of the World (including Asia Pacific) is expected to remain the largest market for polyamide resin consumption for composite applications.

The Rest of the World (including Asia Pacific) is likely to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to expected increase in vehicle production and growing consumer goods and electrical/electronics industry in the region.

For business expansion, Lucintel’s report suggests innovation and new product development to achieve higher strength and stiffness, weight reduction, better long term thermal and heat resistance, and improved aesthetics.

Emerging trends which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry include the increasing use of post-consumer recycled polyamide resins, increasing use of bio based resins for various applications, and growing inter-material competition. BASF, DuPont, DSM, Solvay, and LANXESS are among the major suppliers of polyamide resin in the global composites industry.
