Latest News on Global Caprolactam Forecast To 2022 Industry Analysis


Global Caprolactam Market-Segmented by Raw Material, End Product, Application, End-user Industry, and Geography-Trends and Forecasts (2017-2022). The market is expected to gain in emerging markets rapidly, especially the Middle East and Asia-Pacific due to an increase in demand


The global caprolactam market has been estimated at USD XX Billion in 2015  and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2020, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020.

The conventional way to manufacture caprolactam is dependent on its intermediate cyclohexanone, which is produced by the oxidation of  cyclohexane.

However, baprolactam can also be produced from phenol or toulene.  Separately, hydroxylamine sulphate is reacted with the cyclohexanone to produce cyclohexanone oxime, followed by a beckmann rearrangement using oleum  to produce caprolactam.  The typical use of caprolactam is in the formation of nylon-6 fiber. The engineering plastics too find an extensive use of this compound. The nylon is abrasive resistant, highly resilient and finds extensive use in the production of carpets, seat belts and other daily textile needs. The amazing property of nylon being its ability to melt on burning keeps its market always on a high demand.
