Updated to Q3 2021
Supply is expected to remain tight for nylon 6 and very tight for nylon 6,6. Currently, there is a shortage of raw materials and additives used in the production of nylon 6,6. Several force majeures in both the US and Europe remain in place for ADN and adipic acid – crucial to nylon 6,6 production – as well as capro, used in making nylon 6. Several producers have declared force majeures for nylon as well.
Demand is likely to remain strong for automotive and construction applications in the near term. Construction and remodelling still show strength, even as some consumer spending increases for travel and entertainment. Auto demand for nylon is expected to remain strong, as there is a shortage of both new and used cars.
