Impact of COVID-19 on global HPPAs market

The HPPAs market is has witnessed a decline in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This deadly virus has adversely affected the entire globe, especially the North American and European regions. To prevent the further spread of this virus, companies have shut down their operations and manufacturing facilities. This has led to a reduction in the consumption of HPPAs across automotive, electrical & electronics, industrial, medical, other end-use industries.

Market Dynamics of global HPPAs market

Increasing demand from the automotive end-use industry to drive the demand for HPPAs

In the automotive industry, HPPAs is used to manufacture multitudes of under the hood components, such as hoses and gear shift modules. HPPAs are lightweight, offer good thermal and chemical resistance, dimensional stability, and chemical resistance. These are good fire retardants and emit low smoke and hence preferred in the aerospace industry as well.

The automotive industry requires high strength-to-weight ratio, as it determines the vehicle's performance. This is why the industry relies on advanced materials such as HPPAs to replace metals without compromising the strength and safety of the vehicle. The recovery in automotive industry post Covid-19 era is expected to drive the HPPAs market.

Higher costs compared to traditional substitutes is a major restrain for the HPPAs market

Manufacturing HPPAs requires high investment due to a more complex process than any other plastic, such as conventional polyamides. HPPA products are manufactured at high temperatures and require technical expertise. The high cost of plastics adds to the production cost, limiting their applicability and restraining market growth. The high cost of production also restricts the entry of small- and mid-level players into the market, which acts as a deterrent to the growth of the HPPAs market.

Emerging applications in automotive and electrical industries is one of the major opportunity for the HPPAs market

For the past years, HPPAs have been gaining wide acceptance in the automotive and electrical industries. Due to continuous R&D in both HPPAs and application industries, the application range of HPPAs is on the rise. These developments open new opportunities for application on HPPAs in the automotive industry. HPPAs are used to make many under the hood components in vehicles, such as fuel systems, cooling systems, and fuel injector nipples. Recently, Audi tested HPPAs as a material substitute to metals in its gearbox assembly. This will prove to be a turning point in application range of HPPAs in the automotive industry.

In electrical industry, HPPAs were used for high voltage application and microelectronics. Excellent thermal, electrical, mechanical, and chemical properties combined with high thermal stability, high glass transition temperature, low dielectric constant, and overall good electrical insulation properties make them optimal for electrical applications. With the need for novel electrical applications, HPPAs have proved to be optimal solutions suitable even for many types of integrated circuits.

Difficulty in processing is a major challenge for the HPPAs market

One of the major challenges faced by HPPA manufacturers is the lack of quality compounders and distributors. A high level of technical expertise is required for the compounding or processing of HPPAs. The compounding of HPPAs is much more complex than that of conventional polyamides or any other type of plastic and requires specialized equipment and setup. HPPAs also absorb moisture during the manufacturing process; hence the humidity of the manufacturing plant is to be maintained carefully. HPPAs tend to show volumetric shrinkage when cooled, especially for thickness above 6mm.

Market recovery post COVID-19

The COVID-19 outbreak has drastically altered the demand for HPPAs across the globe due to a decline in demand from the automotive, electrical & electronics, industrial, medical, and other end-use industries. The pandemic has abruptly interrupted the operations and global supply chain across various industries, which in turn has slowed down the growth of the HPPAs market. Various countries have imposed lockdown to prevent the further spread of the virus. Europe and North America are the most severely affected regions due to COVID-19. Companies need to cope with this sudden impact brought by the pandemic and have to efficiently work on their supply chain and improve their distribution network to capture the demand for HPPAs in the near future and tackle the sudden fluctuations in the market.

Need to maintain uninterrupted supply chain and operate at full capacity post COVID-19

The global automotive, electrical & electronics, industrial, medical and other end-use industries have witnessed adverse and immediate consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. These are some of the worst-affected industries, and the biggest challenge for HPPAs manufacturers is to resume the projects and production at their original capacities and make up for the revenue loss and damage caused by the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has created ripples across the global HPPAs industries due to the closure of national and international borders, leading to disrupted supply chains. The challenges in the current and future scenarios for the HPPAs industry are to ensure the smooth flow of global supply chains, responsible for rapidly transporting materials and components across borders. These applications have to make up for the delays or non-arrival of raw materials.
