Updated to Q1 2021
Supply of US nylon grades will remain tight entering Q1 with supplies scarce and end-use demand robust. Plant outages in the US and Europe have limited supplies. Lanxess was rebuilding stock levels through the end of 2020 after an outage at its plant in Belgium. Ascend Performance Materials said it expects to lift a force majeure on nylon 6,6 from its Pensacola, Florida, plant in early January after operations are fully restored.
Demand is expected to remain strong in Q1. Producers see continued improvement for autos, electronic appliances, and compounding. The automotive sector—which accounts for about half of US nylon demand and a third of global demand—is expected to remain healthy. Low interest rates and work-at-home situations are driving existing home sales, new home construction and remodeling. A strong housing market is good for nylon demand, especially nylon 6, which goes into carpeting.
