Caprolactam Industry in Asia – Promising Investments Target and Expansion Prospect According to Merchant Research & Consulting, Ltd.

Jun 23rd, 2011

LONDON – Caprolactam industry is undergoing a stage of gradually falling prices nowadays. This trend has already had effects on the production resources – lots of manufacturing cutbacks and facilities closures took place in the key producing regions. That did not propel the oversupply to disperse on the developed markets which contrasts to the situation in Asia, where the caprolactam industry offers many opportunities for investments and production expansion.

Given the large-scale geographical shift of some industries to Asia (take the engineering plastic resins or nylon-6), this region is expected to demonstrate the highest consumption levels and to drive the global caprolactam market.
