The global nylon market has reached an all-time high during the forecast period (2018-2028). The increasing demand for polyamides in textile, tire, and military supply applications coupled with the growth of the household appliance industry are major factors propelling the market. The Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth owing to its huge potential for textiles and apparel applications.

Nylon is a type of polymer which is made up of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. Nylon has high strength and durability due to its poly-amide structure. Nylon is often mixed with other materials such as cotton, wool, or silk for enhancing the textile properties of the fabrics. Nylons are used in many industries such as the textile industry for making clothes, the tire industry for manufacturing tires, the military supply where they are widely used to make parachutes, and the household appliance sector for the production of electrical cables.

On the basis of type, the global nylon market is segmented into nylon-66, nylon-12, and nylon-46.


Nylon-66 is a polymer with the chemical formula of C11H14O (C=carbon, H=hydrogen, O=oxygen). Nylon 66 is an engineering plastic that has been used for over 70 years. This material was one of the first high-performance polymers produced and remains in common use today. The elastic properties are superior to those of nylon-12/nylon 12.


The Nylon-12 is the newest type of nylon that was developed 20 years ago. The main difference between Nylon 12 and other types of nylons are its higher stiffness, strength, and toughness coupled with lower elasticity which makes it suitable for a variety of demanding applications including industrial gears, vehicle parts, sporting goods, etc.


Nylon-46 is a polymer of nylon obtained by heating naphthalene or coal tar. It has been used as an agricultural herbicide and insecticide, but it's not widely available in North America since its major use today is to make artificial silk fibers for textiles. In the textile industry, nylon-46 was once used to make artificial silk, but it is no longer in widespread use because of its poor strength.

On the basis of application, the global nylon market is segmented into textile, tire, military supply, household appliance.


Nylon is a durable, strong material that can handle high-stress applications. It has many different uses in textile manufacturing due to the strength and durability of nylon fibers. Textiles typically require these properties because they are worn constantly with everyday wear and tear from washing or other activities such as exercise. The average home would use Nylon fabrics for clothes, upholstery materials for furniture and curtains.

Uniforms are a good example of where nylon is used in the textile industry because they see constant wear from everyday use. The most popular material for manufacturing uniforms is durable Nylon fabrics that provide excellent protection against abrasion and high-stress applications such as chemical spills. They also offer a degree of flame-retardant protection that is important for military staff and law enforcement.


The tire is the most common application for nylon. The majority of tires are made from natural rubber, but all-synthetic polymers such as nylon and its copolymers have been used since 1965 when they emerged in competition with steel-belted radial tires. Nylon is used to make tire cord fabric, tire cord plies, and reinforcing fabric in radial tires.

Military Supply

Nylon is a synthetic fabric that has been used extensively in military supply, due to its strength in many different environments and also for the lightweight nature of nylon. For example, it can be used as the canvas on tents or rain ponchos because they are resistant to water; but if you need something strong enough for harsher conditions, such as in military supply, nylon can be used for these purposes also.

Household Appliances

Nylon is a synthetic polymer that has found many uses in the manufacture of household appliances such as vacuum cleaners, washing machines, and refrigerators. In addition to being used for insulation purposes, nylon can be blended with rubber or plastic materials which act as shock absorbers where needed.

Nylon is a type of polymer that has an immense amount of uses. However, one of the most common applications for this material in the household appliance industry is wire coating (Miller). Wire coatings are typically used to protect wires and other devices against corrosion or abrasion. These coatings are typically sprayed onto the surface of copper wire to protect it from damage (Miller).

On the basis of region, the global nylon market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America: North American region is expected to have a significant contribution to the global nylon market during 2018-2028 owing to increasing demand from the textile industry. The U.S will continue to remain a leading player in this regional segment as it accounted for more than 12% of the revenue share globally due to its supportive government policies towards innovation and development of new products related to nylon such as insulated urethane rubber hose, flexible metal cable jacketing, etc., which are used extensively in military supplies by various countries including the United States Canada Mexico among others. Furthermore, the NAFTA agreement has bound these three countries together economically providing an edge over other regions with respect to the trading environment that could be a major driving force to sustain the growth of the North American region during the forecast period.

Growth Factors

The growth factors for the global Nylon market are increased demand from downstream industries such as textile, tire, and military supply sectors. The increasing consumption of nylon in textiles is expected to drive the regional production trend during the forecast period. In addition, emerging economies such as China, India, and Southeast Asia are gradually adopting a consumerist approach to their lifestyles which will cause more expenditure on products like toys or clothing made with synthetic materials that include nylons.
