The glass filled nylon market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.8%, in terms of value, between 2019 and 2024.
The glass filled nylon market size is estimated to grow from USD 8.2 billion in 2019 to USD 10.8 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.8% between 2019 and 2024. Glass filled nylon is used in different industries such as automotive, industrial, and electrical & electronics due to their superior properties such as high dimensional stability, high creep resistance, high strength, rigidity, and chemical resistance. However, the shortage of polyamide 66 can hinder the growth of the glass filled nylon market.
’Polyamide 6 based glass filled nylon is projected to register a higher CAGR, in terms of value and volume, between 2019 and 2024.’
Polyamide 6 is manufactured by a continuous process, preferably hydrolytic ring opening polymerization of caprolactam, which is made up of six carbons at 482 ?F to 518 ?F The 6 stands for the number of carbon atoms in a single amino residue, indicating repeated units. It is a semi-crystalline polyamide that has high tensile strength and elasticity. It also has a strong inter-chain bond of amide group polarity and hence exhibits superior properties such as rigidity, thermal resistance, and toughness. Glass filling in polyamide 6 further enhances the properties of polyamide 6. These factors make glass filled polyamide 6 widely used in end-use industries such as automotive, electrical & electronics, and industrial.
The automotive end-use industry segment is expected to register the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2024.
The automotive end-use industry is one of the prime consumers of glass filled nylon, globally, and is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. The use of glass filled nylon in the automotive industry dates back to 1950. Glass filled nylon is primarily used in the automotive industry for weight reduction measure. In new generation vehicles, the strength per unit weight is very critical and hence glass filled nylon is used in applications such as automotive engine covers, parts inside the engine compartment, and under the bonnet of cars.
