DSM is the leading player in the global injection molding polyamide 6 market. In November 2019, the engineering plastics business of the DSM company entered a partnership with Nexeo Plastics. The partnership was done to enhance its distribution network of DSM engineering plastic products, including Akulon PA6/66 for automotive, electronics, and industrial manufacturers throughout the North American region. The DSM produces wide range of injection molding polyamide 6 under the brand name Akulon.
Another important player in the global injection molding polyamide 6 market is DOMO Chemicals. DOMO produces polyamide 6 under the engineering plastics business segment. Polyamide 6 offered by DOMO engineering plastic division is used in end-use industries such as automotive and the electrical and electronics (E&E), and consumer goods. In August 2019, DOMO Chemicals signed an agreement to acquire Solvay SA’s performance polyamides business in Europe. This acquisition will significantly strengthen the DOMO Chemicals downstream polyamide-based engineering materials business in Europe. Further, in March 2020, DOMO Chemicals announced to invest USD 13.28 million in a new polyamide plant in China. The new plant will be in the convenient transportation port area of DuShan, Pinghu city. The new polyamide plant in China is expected to strengthen the position of DOMO Chemicals in the polyamide market of China.
