Caprolactam Market
Caprolactam Market

According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, the global Caprolactam Market was valued at USD 12.6 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 19.27 billion by the year 2026, at a CAGR of 5.4%. Caprolactam is a cyclic amide or lactam of caproic acid. Nylon 6, which is an extensively used synthetic polymer, is the raw material used in Caprolactam. It is a colorless organic compound that is manufactured using three different sources, such as cyclohexane, phenol, and toluene. Cyclohexane is the most prominent source used for fabricating caprolactam. Its mechanical properties such as being lightweight and high strength make it the best choice of material to produce nylon fiber and resins. Another added benefit in production of caprolactam is that its manufacturing plant requires less technical complexity along with low initial investment in its infrastructure which has encouraged new participants to enter the market.

Rapid urbanization and an increase in consumer’s disposable income is also contributing towards the market growth. The increased per capita income has resulted in the growth of the middle-class population having high purchasing power. As a result of this, the clothing industry has witnessed significant growth, which in turn, has boosted the demand for caprolactam in fabric production. Its usage in electrical and electronic equipment industry has also expanded caprolactam’s market significantly. Caprolactam also has a usage in the automotive industry, and with automotive sector on a global rise, it has contributed to proportional growth of caprolactam market as well. All these factors have contributed towards a definite dynamic growth curve of this market, and it is expected to keep growing in the coming years.
