Demand for High Performance Polyamides to be Bolstered by the Auto and Electronics Sectors, Projected to Reach 271k MTs by 2022

Wednesday 19 Oct 2016

Industry Experts has released the global market report on High Performance Polyamides. The new report titled ‘High Performance Polyamides – A Global Market Overview’ reveals that the Automotive sector is the largest global volume market for High Performance Polyamides, which is also anticipated to record the fastest CAGR of 4.2% between 2016 and 2022 and reach a projected 116.9 thousand metric tons by 2022 from a forecast 91.5 thousand metric tons in 2016.

Bridging cost and performance gap between engineering polyamides and other high performance polymers, high performance polyamides (HPPA) are widely used in automotive, electrical & electronics and various other demanding applications. High performance polyamides withstand extreme conditions such as long term exposure to heat, chemicals, and moisture. Compared to standard polyamide technologies including PA 6 and PA 66, HPPAs can offer improved dimensional stability due lower moisture absorbsion.

Mega trends in the automotive, electrical & electronics and oil & gas sectors are expected to spur the demand for high performance polyamides in the future. In the automotive industry, growth is supported by metal replacement to reduce vehicle weight, while thinner and smaller components in electronic devices. Further, the development of unconventional oil and gas technologies to spur the demand for the specialty polyamides.

Global volume consumption of High Performance Polyamides is forecast to be 217.4 thousand metric tons in 2016 and is projected to reach 271.1 thousand metric tons by 2022 at a CAGR of 3.7% between the two years. Asia-Pacific is the largest volume consumer of High Performance Polyamides, forecast to be 105.4 thousand metric tons (48.5% share) in 2016, which is also expected to record the fastest 2016-2022 CAGR of 4.6% and reach a projected 138 thousand metric tons by 2022.
