World Analysis - Nylon Engineering Resins
IHS Chemical World Analysis - Nylon Engineering Resins is an annual study that covers historical trends and forecasts for nylon 6 and 6,6 supply/demand fundamentals over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast). Clients receive detailed data on nylon 6 and 6,6 and their major end use markets by country and region with ten-year market forecasts.
The growth in production of durable goods in Asia in recent years has led to China becoming known as the world’s workshop. In a move toward self sufficiency, investment in nylon intermediates and polymer capacity in China is addressing structural shortages in feedstocks and polymers. The new capacity will add a significant increment to global production and has the potential to cause tectonic shifts in the nylon business. This will reshape the patterns of trade in nylon 6 and 6,6 resins in the near term. The new facilities are coming on stream in a time of lackluster demand and are likely to depress global operating rates for a time, forcing some restructuring of current assets.
IHS Chemical World Analysis - Nylon Engineering Resins examines historical trends and long term projections for supply/demand, production, capacity, and trade of the global nylon 6 and 6,6 industries over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast).
Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - Nylon Engineering Resins is 12-month's access to IHS Chemical's online capacity and supply/demand databases, with updates to the capacity database as they occur and one update to the supply/demand database. The study's conclusions, with text and graphs, are provided online; as are the Excel files for the supply/demand flat file and the regional supply/demand graphs.
End use markets for nylon 6 and 6,6 engineering resins covered in the analysis include:
- Automotive and Truck
- Electrical and Electronics
- Film and Coatings
- Wire and Cable
