Polyamide intermediate is a thermoplastic silky material also known as nylon. It is available in a fibrous state as well as in plastics. Polyamide intermediates are used for an array of applications, including fabrics, tyres, and carpets.
Many manufacturers are engaged in developing bio-based methods for developing the polyamide intermediates. With the introduction of bio-based polyamide intermediates, the global polyamide intermediates market is expected to see healthy growth, as it is recyclable and is being adopted by a range of end use industries including automotive, electronics, textiles and consumer goods.
The use of polyamide intermediate chemicals in the automotive sector now includes replacing some alloy parts such as nuts and bolts to reduce the weight of vehicles. This demand is fostering growth in the market. However, the moisture absorption properties of the polyamide intermediates chemicals decreases the tensile strength of the material which might pose as a restraint, in addition, they are subjected to shrinkage.
Based on type, the market can be segmented into:
- Synthetic Polyamide Intermediate Chemicals
- Bio-Based Polyamide Intermediate Chemicals
Based on applications, the market can be segmented into:
- Musical Strings.
- Conveyor Belts.
Based on the end use industries, the market can be segmented into:
Based on the geographic regions, the market is segmented into:
- North America.
- Latin America.
- Western Europe.
- Eastern Europe.
- Asia Pacific.
- Middle East & Africa.
The Asia-Pacific is the largest market, where China holds the largest share followed by India, the growth of polyamide intermediate chemicals in these countries are attributed with the growth of the automotive, chemicals and textile industries.
Some of the major players identified in the market includes, BASF SE, DuPont, DSM, Segetis, Inc., Solvay, Arizona Chemical Company, LLC., and Genomatica, Inc. among others.
