Global Caprolactam Market is valued approximately at USD 13.1 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 3.59% over the forecast period 2019-2026.
Caprolactam is an organic compound, that is basically a colorless solid and is a lactam of caproic acid. Caprolactam finds extensive application during the production of nylon 6 fibers and nylon 6 resins. Nylon is chemical resistant, damage resistant from oils and abrasion resistant thus finds its application in across the textile, automotive, and electrical and electronics industries. Further, the mechanical properties of the product such as high strength and light weight makes it appropriately endorsed substantial material to make resins and nylon fiber. Growing demand for lightweight automotive vehicles, growth of films and coatings applications coupled with growth of emerging economies are key driving forces of market growth. According to Center for Automotive Research, light vehicle sales globally are expected to increase from 92 million units in 2016 to 110 million units by 2026. Whereas, Development of Bio-Based Caprolactam in Regions with Strict Regulations is expected to create lucrative growth opportunity in the market over the forecast period. However, moisture absorption resulting in degradation of properties impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2019-2026.

The regional analysis of global caprolactam market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World. North America is facing sluggish market growth. Whereas, Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to exhibit highest growth rate / CAGR over the forecast period 2019-2026.
