Market Analysis and Size
Polyamide is a few years older than polyester. Polyamide first produced before World War I, but it wasn’t formed commercially till 1938. Polyamide is also made from water, petroleum and other chemicals. But the way in which the chemicals are combined in polyamide is different than they are with polyester due to this it gives polyamide which is slightly different properties than polyester. Polyamide is common in textiles like carpets and clothing. It also often characteristics in the production of items that require both flexibility and strength which including gears, guitar picks fishing line, electrical connectors, and strings and medical implants.

Polyamide is a polymer which held together with amide bonds. Fabrics like silk, wool and nylon are all the examples of polyamides. Silk and wool are natural polyamides, while nylon is synthetic polyamide. Synthetic polyamide thermoplastics are essential in engineering because they deliver high performance at a reasonable price. Polyamide may yield a woven form when it is produced as a fabric, or it may take a harder and sturdier structure when cast as a resin. It may sometimes be weaved for a unique blend of flexibility and strength
Polyamide Market Dynamics
- Demand in automotive sector
Increase the demand in the automotive sector of polyamide to forms air intake manifolds, valve covers, engine covers, and airbag containers and used for external components such as wheel covers, handles, grilles, and fuel caps. These components can also use metal, but the polyamide makes them lighter, and more fuel-efficient for cars and also cuts down the production costs.
- High demand for bio based polyamide
Bio-based polyamides are one form of polyamide that are gaining traction due to the increasing environmental concerns by the consumption of fossil fuel-based polyamides. Their improved low moisture absorption rate, chemical resistance, and higher impact strength than their traditional counterparts have increased their usage in several applications like tires, sporting goods, cable jackets, carpets, and flexible gas and oil hoses. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the polyamide market.
- Usage in textile industry
Polyamides are used to manufacture the fibres and are produced in a variety of forms, as carpet filament, textile filament, and industrial filament. For example, for ropes. However, for both staple fibres and continuous filament, which are spun from the molten polymer at very high speeds there is great importance on controlling the polymer chemistry and the yarn is produced in order to confirm the production of the high quality material which has required for the particular purposes.
The widespread applications of the polyamide in the packaging industry overall the world will act as one of the major factors that will drive the market's growth. The increase in demand for polyamide in several sectors for example packaging, automotive, electrical and electronics, machinery, textiles, and consumer goods accelerate the market growth. The rise in the inclination towards polyamide comparison to metals in automotive air intake manifolds further influence the market. Moreover, the growth of the research and development and electrical and electronics industry positively affects the polyamide market. Moreover, development is the increasing need for lightweight raw materials in the transportation and automobile sectors to extend beneficial opportunities to the market players during forecast period.
Polyamides are very useful material but sometimes absorb water, which is unfavourable for the market because wetted polyamide has 50% less tensile strength than dry polyamide. Polyamide can also sometimes shrink when cast so these properties will hinder the polyamide market growth rate. Competition from elastomer-based alternatives and fluctuation in prices of raw materials are expected to hinder the polyamide market growth. The presence of stringent government rules is also expected to challenge the polyamide market during forecast period
