Caprolactam market is expected to grow at a steady rate in the forecast period owing to its use in the manufacture of nylon 6 polymers that constitute a wide range of applications. Caprolactam is primarily employed in the manufacture of nylon 6 in the form of resins and fibers. Nylon 6 resins are used in the manufacture of astextiles, industrial yarns, and carpets, while nylon 6 fibers are employed in various end-use segments including engineering plastics, packaging, and electronics. Nylon 6 fibers are primarily used in threading of automobile tires due to its great tensile strength, durability and light weight. Nylon 6 resins are used in the manufacture of apparel, swimwear, sportswear and fashion wear. When dissolved in water, caprolactam may be utilized for various medicinal purposes.
