Polyamide markets' regional differences in supply/demand dynamics and cost/price in 2023 are outlined by Tecnon OrbiChem's lead business manager William Bann and senior consultant Javier Rivera. This new eBook explores each region's distinct challenges and threats.
China is emerging out of its Spring Festival and crippling restrictions designed to contain the country's elevated Covid threat. As it re-establishes itself and business practices normalise, what will the ripple effect globally be?
Bann’s and Rivera’s insights are previewed here, with more detailed analysis in the free-to-download eBook below.

The graph above (and pie chart below) shows how China has been racing ahead with its caprolactam output capacity this past decade. But what do its producers' plans for its distribution entail? Will the markets that require PA 6 recover quick enough in 2023 for this output to be absorbed in the domestic market? Or will there be a surplus that makes its way into global markets? And if so, what will that mean for prices?
How markets get held back
The eBook considers China's PA 66 market and the factors that have held its market back. How might new developments help overcome them? Will a rebound in the PA 66 markets trigger new trends in selling tactics?
Meanwhile in Europe, how will the recent decrease in energy costs impact PA 6 markets? How will caprolactam markets balance if there is no healthy export outlet? And what do current production to capacity ratios look like?
