Specialty Polyamides Market: Snapshot

Specialty polyamides are fabricated materials that provide comparable amounts of durability and mechanical strength as conventional materials while weighing significantly less. Specialty polyamides are also notable due to the lower carbon footprint their production generates, which has emerged as a key driver for the specialty polyamides market due to the vast environmental consequences of the production of conventional materials such as plastics.

The automotive industry is the leading consumer in the global specialty polymers market and is likely to retain a dominant share in the coming years due to the rising acknowledgment of the benefits of lighter cars in terms of minimizing their environmental impact. Using lighter materials in car construction leads to lower fuel consumption, as the same amount of power is distributed over a smaller mass, helping enhance the environmental footprint of the automobile. Lighter cars also provide better handling, since the momentum of the vehicle is reduced. This has also been a key factor in leading to lighter materials, including specialty polyamides, becoming popular in the automotive sector.

Several government bodies, including the U.S. EPA, have also come out in support of the use of lighter materials in car construction due to their significant cumulative potential to reduce man’s impact on climate change. The specialty polyamides market has benefited significantly from such initiatives and is likely to rely on government support in the coming years, particularly due to the higher prices of specialty polyamides in comparison to conventional automotive construction materials. Government support will also help the global specialty polyamides market overcome one of its key restraint: lack of awareness in developing countries. The booming automotive industry in developing countries such as China, Japan, and India is thus likely to have a significant impact on the global specialty polyamides market in the coming years. 

Global Specialty Polyamides Market: Overview

Specialty polyamide manufacturers are preferring eco-friendly and high-quality alternatives as raw materials to conventional petroleum.
