Updated to Q4 2020
US nylon supply should be ample in the fourth quarter, with no planned turnarounds. Supply levels are also likely to stay elevated because of the gradual return of demand after shutting the economy because of the coronavirus, specifically from the automotive sector. Sales of new vehicles continue to lag last year’s levels as the industry attempts to recover from a production halt caused by the pandemic and fewer buyers because of high unemployment.
Demand should continue to show improvement as the economy restarts after shutting down to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. About 50% of domestic demand for nylon goes into automotive production, so the slow recovery of that industry should continue to weigh on demand. Demand for nylon 6 is likely to hold steady as commercial and residential construction activity has returned to near pre-pandemic levels following the restart of the economy.
