Updated to Q2 2020
US supply of nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 is expected to be ample in the second quarter as there are no planned turnarounds scheduled. Waning demand from the pause in automotive production because of the coronavirus will add to supply, although it is likely that producers have already reduced operating rates. Most North American auto production was halted in March because of the coronavirus, and it remains unclear when production will resume.
US demand for nylon is expected to soften in the second quarter amid the economic downturn created by efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus. About 35% of global nylon resin demand comes from the auto industry, which halted most North American production in March after a United Auto Workers (UAW) worker at a plant in Warren, Michigan was diagnosed with the virus. It remains unclear when production will resume.
