Polyamide 11 & 12 Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Polyamide 11 & 12 Market was worth US$  3,117.5 Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period. The market is expected to hit US$  5,560.0 Mn by 2030 end.

POLYAMIDE 11 & 12 are lightweight and have excellent thermal and chemical resistance, dimensional stability, and chemical resistance. These are effective fire retardants and emit little smoke, making them popular in the aircraft and automotive sectors.

They offer minimal water absorption, and molded parts show no dimensional change with variation in the atmospheric humidity. It makes them an attractive option for the molded parts in the automotive.

Market Dynamic


The utilization of polyamide 11 & 12s in various sectors is critical to market growth. The applications of polyamide 11 & 12s are many. Polyamides are commonly utilized in the textile industry to replace silk and cotton.

Polyamide 11 & 12 demand is predicted to rise during the forecast period as its acceptance grows among end-use industries. Polyamide 12 is a fine yellowish powder widely used in additive manufacturing. Polyamide 11 is used in the oil and gas sector for umbilical lines and hoses, gas pipes and fittings, and flexible liners for offshore and onshore applications.

Polyamide 11 and 12 offer strong heat and chemical resistance to various chemical substances such as aldehydes, ketones, hydrocarbons, and others.


Due to a more sophisticated process than any other plastic, such as standard polyamides, producing Polyamide 11 & 12 necessitates a significant investment. Polyamide 11 & 12 products are made at high temperatures and need technological skills.

Plastics’ high cost adds to production costs, restricting their application and stifling market expansion. The high cost of production also prevents small and mid-level competitors from entering the market, limiting the development of the Polyamide 11 & 12 industry.

COVID-19 Impact

The Polyamide 11 & 12 market is expected to contract in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This lethal virus has wreaked havoc on the world, particularly in North America and Europe. Companies shut down their operations and production facilities to prevent the virus from spreading further. It has decreased polyamide use throughout the automotive, electrical & electronics, industrial, medical, and other end-use industries.
