High performance polyamides are engineered thermoplastic materials that exhibit excellent strength, high chemical resistance, and high dielectric strength. The raw materials used for manufacturing of high performance polyamide are adipic acid and caprolactam. They can be either bio-based or petroleum-based, depending on the source used to manufacture.
The global high performance polyamides market was valued USD 2400 million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 3473.0 at a CAGR of 5.52% by the end of 2023. The key factor driving this market include the high demand for automotive weight reduction owing to the stringent regulations for environment protection and CO2 emissions. The market is also driven by the increasing demand from the consumer goods industry in sportswear, cosmetic, and personal care products. The demand for high performance polyamide in electrical & electronics industry is due to its excellent tear resistance and flex fatigue. The increasing demand for these products can be attributed to the changing lifestyle trend coupled with the high per capita disposable income. Furthermore, the inclining trend towards bio-based products is expected to offer lucrative opportunities to the polyamide manufacturers in the coming years.
However, stringent regulations on the use of synthetic polyamides that may prove hazardous to the environment and human health may challenge the market growth.
