Market Dynamics.


Robust demand from the automotive industry 

The demand for thermosetting polyamides is multiplying in the automotive industry due to their high strength, flexibility, and thermal conductivity attributes. Furthermore, thermosetting polyamide is widely preferred in manufacturing various auto components. This is projected to propel the growth of the thermosetting polyamide market in the automotive industry. 


High price and entry of competitors 

However, the production process for thermosetting polyamide is highly capital-intensive. In addition, fluctuation in raw materials prices and sometimes unavailability of raw materials is expected to hamper the market. In response to this, thermosetting polyamide becomes a waste landfill as TP material that cannot be recycled. Such factors hinder the growth of the thermosetting polyamide market.

Global Thermosetting Polyamide Market 2023–2032 (By Technology)


Robust demand from the industrial sector 

Factors such as the rise in population across the globe and well established industrial sector in both developed and developing economies have enhanced the performance of thermosetting polyamides in the industrial sector, wherein it is used in the gaskets, pipes, inserts, insulation coatings, seals, and other manufacturing equipment. This factor is expected to increase the potential sales of thermosetting polyamide, thus, offering the most remunerative opportunities for the future.


Higher-cost manufacturing process 

Over the forecast period, thermosetting polyamide leads to complexity in manufacturing requirement of huge capital expenditure, and expertise is expected to dampen the market. Furthermore, replacing the TP’s with other PVC-based TPs is expected to hinder the market. In addition, government norms and regulations on some TPs are expected to challenge the call.

Report Highlights.

Based on technology type, they segmented into extrusion molding, hot compression molding, direct forming, isotactic pressing, and others.

The extrusion molding-based technology type segment dominated the market in 2021 and held 36.56% of the total market share over the forecast period. Extrusion molding-based technology is widely used in the automotive industry, where it is used to manufacture different shapes of various auto components. Polyamide is an excellent source of thermal insulation, resistance to chemicals, and temperature. It possesses high strength & flexibility, due to which it is the most preferred TP’s in various industries, including aerospace, adhesive & sealants, fabric, and the automotive sector has enhanced the growth of polyurethane-based thermosetting polyamide during the forecast period.

Depending upon the application, the thermosetting polyamide market is segmented into aerospace, automotive, electronics appliances, construction, adhesives, and others. It is expected that the global automotive industry segment to hold a dominant position during 2022 -2031 and account for 43.67% of the total market share. 

Thermosetting polyamides mainly use extrusion-molding technology for producing different shapes of auto-components. In addition, it is resistant to chemicals, temperature, and high flexibility used to monitor air inlets and/or exhaust for improved engine operation. For instance, according to a report published by for India Brand Equity Foundation in July 2022, India’s annual production of automobiles in FY22 was 22.93 million. These factors are expected to enhance the demand for the thermosetting polyamide market.

Furthermore, the building and construction sector is expected to grow over the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing young population, rise in demand for building, and advancement in infrastructure development have driven the demand for TP, which is used for thermal and acoustic insulation purposes.
