Moreover, key players in the country are developing bold new strategies to capitalize on growth as well as partnering with or acquiring other companies to gain a larger consumer base and leverage market solutions. These factors are expected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

Product Insights

The high-temperature specialty polyamide segment dominated the industry in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of more than 47.20% of the overall revenue. The product segment includes high-temperature polyamides, long-chain polyamides, and MXD6/PARA specialty polyamides. The segment is expected to maintain its dominance over the coming years. High-temperature polyamides are highly crystalline polyamides that differ from other specialty polyamides, such as PA 6/10, PA 11, PA 6/12, and PA 12, due to their thermal and mechanical properties.

High-temperature polyamides include PA6T/6I/66, PA6T/66/DT, PA6T/66, PA46, PA9T, PA4T, PA6T/6, PA6T/6I, PA6T/DT, and PA10T. High-temperature polyamides are high-performance materials that are cost-effective and offer ease of processing, strength, and durability. Manufacturers of end-products from a variety of applications prefer high-performance polyamides for better strength, enhanced thermal performance, reduced weight, durability, and simplified processing.

Application Insights

Automotive & transportation was the largest application segment in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of more than 37.45% of the overall revenue. Specialty polyamides are commonly used in the automotive industry as they meet the needs of automotive thermal management components. They maintain excellent toughness and strength when exposed to hot automotive fluids. It finds important application in the above fields due to its excellent balance of oil resistance, toughness, mechanical strength, design flexibility, and thermal stability.

Global specialty polyamidesmarket share, by application, 2022 (%)

In automotive & transportation applications, the demand for products is expected to be driven by its PA 12, PA 11, PA 4/6, and PA 6/12 grades. These grades are typically used in automotive cooling systems, engine covers, air intake manifolds, tire cords, headlamp bezels, airbag containers, hoses & tubing, exterior automobile parts including door & tailgate handles, fuel caps & lids, wheel covers, and front-end grilles, among others.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of more than 43.00% of the overall revenue in 2022, followed by North America. Led by China, India, and Japan, the Asia Pacific region is projected to expand further at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The availability of low-cost raw materials and labor along with increasing consumption capacity are the major drivers for the growth of the market in this region. Moreover, supportive government policies and a huge untapped market are attracting global specialty polyamide manufacturers to set up production and distribution facilities in the region.

Content Services Platforms Market Trends by Region

Voltage and load fluctuations are common in the Asia-Pacific region compared to developed economies in Europe and North America. Power fluctuations create more demand for power protection devices that can minimize financial losses. Specialty polyamides are gaining more and more attention from electrical and electronics manufacturers because plastic parts are more compact and can be easily integrated with other components, simplifying the design process. The growing middle-class population, rising per capita income, and high living standards in emerging economies will also support regional growth. The rapidly growing automotive manufacturing industry is also supplementing the product demand in the region.
