The global caprolactam market size is anticipated to expand at a robust CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to growing production capacity of nylon 6 across the globe.

Caprolactam is an organic and a colorless solid compound. Most of the caprolactam is synthesized from cyclohexanone, which is first converted to oxime. The chemical treatment of the oxime with cyclic amide acid produces caprolactam.

Caprolactam Market Key Takeaways

Caprolactam is used in the manufacturing of synthetic fibers. It is primarily used as an intermediate in the production of nylon 6 fibres and resins. Around 68% of total caprolactam production is consumed in the manufacturing of nylon fibers, which is latter used in textiles, carpets, and industrial yarns. The remaining production is utilized in engineering resins and films.

Caprolactam applications includes industrial purposes as well as polyamide fabrics. Polyamide fabrics have properties such as high elasticity and resistance. These properties has increased its usage in nets, stockings, female underclothes, parachutes, and sporting garments.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:

  • Growing awareness about caprolactam properties such as lightweight and increasing usage in production of advanced materials are some of the major drivers that is contributing to the growth of the global caprolactam market.
  • Ease of mass production and effective supply chain can augment the caprolactam market growth.
  • Lack of awareness about the caprolactam uses and advantages can restrain the growth of the market.
  • Increasing number of alternatives can impede the market growth.
  • The products containing polyamide absorbs moisture, thereby, decreasing their physical properties, which in turn, increases product stiffness. Thus, such factors can create challenges for the growth of the market.
  • The use of biomass for the production of caprolactam can control the emission of harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide and ammonia. This, in turn, can reduce the overall environmental impact of caprolactam production, driving the market growth.
  • Rising focus on recycling caprolactam can create lucrative opportunities in the market.
