Nylon 6 Filament Yarn Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Application (Sports Apparels, Fabric, Sports & Adventure Equipment, Travel Accessories, Fishing Nets), And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2025

The global nylon 6 filament yarn market size is expected to reach USD 33.58 billion by 2025 progressing at a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period. The global textile industry has been undergoing rapid changes owing to increasing focus of market participants on introducing sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics.

In order to achieve the same, the industry is expected to witness technological advancements in the coming years. Spiraling demand for high-quality apparels at an affordable price and changing fashion preferences are driving nylon 6 filament yarn market.

Rising adoption of nylon for manufacturing textile accessories ranging from automotive textiles to smart textiles, which are employed in military and defense applications, is anticipated to support the growth of the market. Apart from being lightweight and versatile, nylon also facilitates higher design flexibility, which enables production of advanced shapes without compromising the safety and stability of products.

Growing prominence of nylon substitutes such as polypropylene, bioabsorbable polymers, para-aramid synthetic fibers, and polyvinylidene fluoride is anticipated to hamper growth prospects of the market. Over the last few years, PVDF has been experiencing widespread acceptance as a significant substitute of nylon, especially in fishing lines.

Compared to nylon, polypropylene is smoother and more elastic.It has high tensile strength, low elongation, and better handling characteristics.

It is used in various applications such as textile, medical, and fishing. Other environment-friendly substitutes such as bioabsorbable polymers pose a significant threat due to lack of environmental viability of nylon.
