The global nylon market has been estimated to register a significant growth on account of increasing demand of light weight fuel efficient vehicles. The primary factors driving growth of the market are the rising use of the light weight vehicles, growing demand for light weight, heat resistant and durable material in numerous industrial applications, and ever increasing demand of the product from textile industry. The global automotive market is estimated to grow at higher CAGR to mark over USD 90 billion revenue in 2017. The production and use of light weight cars and other automotive, as projected by Morgan Stanley analysts, is set to rise to 2.9 percent of 99 million new vehicles in 2020 and to 9.4 percent of 102 million new vehicles in 2025, from 1.1 percent of 86.5 million this year. This is anticipated to fuel demand of the nylon in manufacturing light yet durable parts. Additionally, there is growing demand for the demand for organic materials which is expected to rise globally due to the rising prices of petrochemical-based raw materials. Bio-based polyamides are a high-quality alternative to substitute petro-based materials. They can be used in automotive, electronics, and sports applications. As a result, it has been projected that in future the demand of nylon may surge manifolds. Moreover, surging demand for and use of consumer goods and electronic devices is expected to further boost growth of the market.
