The global caprolactam market, along with its end products, has witnessed a linear growth in the past few years. 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 6, and the upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques for its use will be the key influencing factors for the global market with the increased emphasis on its different types and applications.

Considerable amount of investments are made by the caprolactam and polyamide 6 players to serve the end-user applications industry in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the most important market that accounted for about 47.5% market share of the total global demand in 2012. The region is further estimated to show a high growth in the future, mainly due to the high growth potential of polyamide 6 in the automotive market in China and India.

Almost 29.6% of the total industry 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 their 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 to improve the standard of processing and manufacturing end-products.

The caprolactam market volume is estimated to be 5,663.0 thousand tons by 2019, signifying a firm annualized growth rate of about 3.7% from 2014 to 2019.

The global market, along with its end use in polyamide 6, witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to continue in the coming years. Quality, durability, lightweight nature, excellent energy absorbing property, an upsurge in the demand for durable polyamide 6, the demand for recyclable caprolactam, and the upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques developed for its use will be the key influencing factors for the global caprolactam market with the increased emphasis on its different types and their applications.

Currently, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumer in the global market. Among all the countries in the region, China and Japan lead the market, with the largest share in the regional volumetric consumption in 2012. The market volume is comparatively low in the RoW region, and is estimated to grow with a low CAGR of 2.9% from 2014 to 2019.

Almost 29.6% of the total demand in the market was for the automotive segment in 2012, followed by consumer goods application as the fastest growing end-user segment. As an end-user, automotive is the largest segment of caprolactam, primarily due to its high penetration in all the regions and the increased demand for lightweight polyamide 6 from auto component manufacturers.

The 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 automotive end-user industry led this rapid growth in the polyamide 6 market, backed by the global automotive vehicle production which is estimated to reach 81 million units in 2013.
