The global nylon market size is expected to reach USD 28.79 billion by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 6.0% between 2020 and 2027. This is attributable to the increasing focus on developing innovative products and the growing demand for nylon 66 in the packaging industry across the globe. Fortune Business Insights™, in its latest report, titled, “Nylon Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Nylon 6 {resin & fiber} Nylon 6,6 {resin & fiber}), By Application (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Appliances, Film & Coating, Wire & Cable, Consumer, Industrial & Machinery and others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027,” observes that the market stood at USD 24.26 billion in 2019 and is projected to experience significant growth in the forthcoming years.


COVID-19 Results in Temporary Shutdown of Production across Industries

To contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, the global government agencies have announced a lockdown that has led to the complete halt of operational and production activities. Owing to strict regulations to follow social distancing and avoid contact, several industries such as packaging, food & beverage, and automotive, among others are experiencing unprecedented economic loss that is anticipated to hinder the market growth to some extent. However, supportive initiatives by the government to work with minimal workforce and adhere to strict social distancing to resume partial operations are expected to positively impact the market growth in the near future. 

Nylon is a type of polymer that is produced by the reaction between carbon-based chemicals that are usually found in petroleum and coal under high pressure. It is widely adopted to manufacture plastic machine parts and electronics owing to its high tensile strength, non-conductivity, heat resistance, and low-cost properties. Additionally, it is used for manufacturing bolts, screws, nuts, and washers in the automotive industry across the globe.
