North America Nylon COVID 19 Insights:

The nylon monofilament market experienced a significant decline in terms of growth and demand during the Covid-19 pandemic. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared Covid-19 a pandemic, urging various countries around the world to declare it a medical emergency.


As a result, many countries' economies and countries shut down. Travel, trade, and other activities were prohibited in countries all over the world. This hampered the growth of various markets, causing them to suffer massive losses. The market for nylon monofilament was also severely impacted in terms of production, distribution, sales, and marketing. However, the nylon monofilament market is expected to recover by the end of 2021.


North America Nylon Market Dynamics:

North America Nylon Market Drivers:


1. Growing Agricultural Sector

One of the major factors driving the demand for nylon monofilament market is the growing agriculture sector around the world, as it is primarily used as nylon fishing line. The total value of farm production in Japan in 2021 was US$84,162 million, a 2.63 percent increase from US$81,999 in past years.


Agriculture and food-related industries in the United States contributed about 5.2 percent of total GDP in 2021.


2. The growing number of diabetes patients across the country

Nylon monofilament is used to screen diabetic feet for loss of protective sensation. This is done to see how the nerves react to vibration and temperature changes. As a result, the rise in diabetes cases around the world is increasing demand for the nylon monofilament market. 


In North America, Approximately 163 million adults (20-79 years) have diabetes as of 2021, with the number of cases expected to rise to 350 million during the forecast period. Diabetes also resulted in at least $760 billion in health-care costs in 2021. This will result in an increase in demand.


3. Growing Demand of Nylon Monofilament from Fishing Net Segment

Nylon monofilament is a single, continuous strand filament of synthetic fiber. Nylon fishing line is the most well-known monofilament. Nylons monofilaments have higher melting points than polypropylene and are typically extruded at temperatures between 260 and 270 degrees Celsius.


A wide range of fishing nets is made from nylon monofilament. Because of its low cost and durability, it is widely used as fishing net. Growth in the fishing sector and rising fish demand are expected to drive up demand for nylon monofilament from fishing net applications through the forecast period.


According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States, global fish production in 2021 was 177.58 million tones. The impact of COVID-19 has reduced production by 1.7 percent.


4. Increased demand for sports equipment

Increased demand for sports equipment as a result of the rapid commercialization of racket sports is expected to bolster global market development. Three-dimensional textile fabric composites made of aromatic nylon have high strength and impact resistance and are widely used in sports protection tools such as protective clothing, gloves, leg guards, and knee guards.


North America Nylon Market Restraints:      

The growth of the nylon monofilament market is being hampered by volatile raw materials.Nylon monofilament is created by refining crude oil with naphtha. Because of the constantly changing supply-demand scenario, crude oil is a highly volatile commodity. One of the most significant challenges to the nylon monofilament market is the volatility of crude oil prices. The Regional price of crude oil decreased by 20.54 percent in 2021.


This reflects the volatile nature of crude oil and is thus one of the most significant challenges to the nylon monofilament market. In contrast, substitutes such as linen, which is highly resistant to many extreme conditions and also less expensive, cause a significant challenge to the nylon monofilament market.


North America Nylon Market Segment Analysis:

By Product, Nylon 6 and nylon 66 are two major nylon monofilament products. Because of their large production and widespread applications, these products dominate the North America nylon monofilament market. Nylon 6 has lower heat resistance than nylon 66 but lower costs, aesthetic benefits, and other advantages such as easy color ability.


In 2023, nylon 6 had a 44.0 percent market share in the regional nylon monofilament market, followed by nylon 66 and others with 43.7 percent and 12.2 percent, respectively. The regional nylon monofilament market is expected to be driven by growing medical applications, particularly in the treatment of diabetes, as well as other applications such as fishing nets, consumer goods, and automotive. The ageing population, combined with rising fish food and automotive demand, is expected to boost the overall nylon monofilament market.


These products have numerous applications in consumer goods, medical applications, the automotive sector, the paper market, and the textile market. Specific applications of nylon monofilament products include fishing nets, racket strings, trimmer lines, automobile seat belts, paper machine clothing, technical & commercial textiles, wigs, and concrete reinforcements.


Bio-based nylon monofilaments, specialty monofilaments, nylon 610, nylon 612, and semi-aromatic nylons are also available. These specialty nylons have a limited application scope at the moment, but they are quickly gaining industry acceptance. Bio-based nylon monofilaments are similar to conventional nylon monofilaments in appearance, but they are easily degradable and lack the harmful properties that harm the environment.
