Ever Increasing Fishing Industry Has Paved the Way for Growth of Nylon Monofilament 

The global rise in demand for nylon monofilament for fishing nets, along with the rise in application in the automotive and commercial and technical textile sectors, are the key driving factors for the growth of the nylon monofilament market. The rapidly growing fishing industry in India, Japan, and China is likely to drive the demand for the nylon monofilament market. Globally, India is the fourth-largest fish producer due to its vast seashore. Nearly 20% of people live near the seashore, and more than 4,000 coastal regions are involved in fishery activity. Novel applications in the healthcare industry, especially in surgeries and treatment of diabetes, contribute to the growth of the nylon monofilament market. A rise in the old ager population along with a significant increase in diabetic patients across the globe, specifically in the Asia Pacific region, propels the market growth in the near future.

Availability of Substitutes and Stringent Regulations to Hold Back Growth of Nylon Monofilament

However, stringent regulations and guidelines of the Environmental Protection Agency for the use of nylon monofilament may hamper the market growth. In addition, further instability in the raw material prices of nylon monofilament may hamper the growth of emerging countries. Most of the leading players are available in emerging countries like India, China, Indonesia, and Russia.

Impact of COVID 19

The sudden coronavirus outbreak has an adverse effect as major application areas of the nylon monofilament are automotive and consumer goods. Due to the attack of covid-19, major end-user industries of nylon monofilament are affected and facing challenges such as sudden shutdown production, supply chain disruption, and reduced consumer demand. Furthermore, automobile manufacturing has declined in all the major automobile-producing emerging countries, such as China, Japan, and India. This sudden supply chain disruption is anticipated to affect the nylon monofilament market over the forecast period.

Large Chunk of Demand Stems from the Asia Pacific

The global nylon monofilament market covers the regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa, Latin America (LATAM), including all the key economies in these regions. Asia Pacific market is expected to account for the largest market share in the global market due to rising demand for nylon monofilament in the automotive and textile industry. In addition, the rising demand for fish food, along with the rapidly increasing fishing industry in emerging countries like India, china, and japan expected to witness moderate growth and will continue over the forecast period.

Furthermore, increasing demand for nylon monofilament for medical applications boosts market growth in the Asia Pacific region. In diabetes patients, monofilaments are broadly used to detect foot sensitivity. Asia Pacific region dominates diabetes owing to containing a large number of diabetic patients in major emerging countries such as China, India, Japan, and Russia. North America is anticipated to register rapid growth in the target market due to the increasing disposable income of individuals and the presence of a technologically advanced medical industry.

Nylon 6 is Major Growth Avenue for Nylon Monofilament Industry

The nylon monofilament product includes Nylon 6, Nylon 66, and Others. In 2020, the nylon six segment dominated the nylon monofilament market, followed by nylon 66 owing to its favorable properties such as lower cost, high tensile strength, lower heat resistance, and other advantages that propel demand over other products. Further, these products have a wide range of application areas such as medical uses, automotive, textile industry, and consumer goods. However, the nylon 66 segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Consumer Goods to Retain its Share in Nylon Monofilament Consumption

The nylon monofilament is used for various automotive, medical, aircraft, consumer goods, and commercial textile applications. However, nylon monofilament is used in consumer goods for various purposes, specifically trimmer lines used in gardening, furniture, and racket strings. Nylon Monofilament industry manufacturers are majorly focusing on research & development. Furthermore, technological innovations in the medical industry and increasing minimally invasive surgery will increase the demand for nylon monofilament. The nylon monofilament is used for cardiovascular surgery as well as for the treatment of diabetes, which in turn contributes to market growth in the near future.

Prominent players are focusing on the consolidation of their market to strengthen their foothold in the global marketplace. Some companies such as BASF SE and Domo Chemicals have gone the inorganic way to perceive their growth by acquiring Ticona and Solvay, respectively. While Invista focused on organic growth strategy by investing in manufacturing capacity expansion of its plant located at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park.
