Bio-Polyamide, Specialty Polyamide & Precursors Market – Global Trends & Forecasts to 2019

Asia-Pacific and the European regions are the most active markets in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demands respectively

The global bio-polyamide market, along with its end products, has witnessed a linear growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. The quality, durability, lightweight nature & excellent energy absorbing property, an upsurge in the demand for durable polyamide; and the upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques for its use will be the key influencing factors for the global polyamide market with the increased emphasis on its different types and their applications.

The bio-based and specialty polyamide market is experiencing enormous growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing North America, Asia-Pacific, and European regions and the intense efforts at country level to promote environment-friendly and recyclable products. Considerable amount of investments are made by various market players to serve the end-user applications industry in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the main bio-polyamide market that accounted for about 41% market share of the total global demand in 2012. The region is further expected to show a high growth in the future, mainly due to the high growth potential of the automotive market in China and India.

Almost 36.2% of the total polyamide demand was for the automotive applications in 2012, with the consumer goods and appliances segment also being the fastest growing end-use segments, primarily due to high penetration in all the regions.

The drivers of the industry are: stringent government regulations, increasing pressure for clean air and water, and the need for improving the standard of processing and manufacturing end-products. Recyclability is a growing concern which could push the market, as bio-based polyamide are 100% recyclable among the competing polyamides available in the market.
