Alternatives to polyamide 6.6 (PA66)

Many discussions with customers and suppliers during Fakuma 2018 confirmed the assessment of our experts: The PA66 market will remain notoriously undersupplied in the next 3 – 5 years, with continued high demand on the customer side.

Market prices for the coveted material are reaching one record high after another, and customers large and small are increasingly facing the risk of not being able to pass on the price increases or even not receiving enough material to maintain production. Market experts expect the situation to worsen again significantly in the coming months and that a significant easing through new production capacities is not to be expected until between 2021 and 2023 at the earliest.

Clear signals, therefore, to start looking at alternative materials now at the latest in order to alleviate one’s own dependence on the PA66 market. The great interest shown on the occasion of Fakuma 2018 confirms that this message has been received by many PA66 users.
