The demand for caprolactam largely relies on that of Nylon 6 fibers & resins, which are used extensively in various applications like textile yarn, industrial yarn, engineering plastics, carpet fibers, and staple fibers. The ever-growing requirements for engineering plastics & films in the automotive sector for manufacturing engine covers, gears, & bearings owing to their superior resistance to oils & greases would also create lucrative prospects for the caprolactam industry through 2028.

Market Segmentation

Based on End-Product:

  • Nylon 6 Resins
  • Nylon 6 Fibres

Of both, Nylon 6 Fibres dominate the Global Caprolactam Market, owing to their burgeoning demand for textile & carpet manufacturing worldwide. One of the prime applications of caprolactam is the production of Nylon 6 fibers, which are lightweight & wrinkle proof, exhibit high strength, and superior resistance to abrasion, as well as chemicals like acids & alkalis. These properties of Nylon 6 make them widely acceptable for applications in sportswear, swimwear, hosiery, & fashion wear and provide an excellent stretch-fit when combined with spandex fibers. Hence, the ever-increasing demand for Nylon 6 fibers is significantly contributing to the expansion of the caprolactam industry globally.
