Report Description


Polyphthalamide (PPA) is an aromatic and semi-crystalline polyamide. It possesses competitive physical properties compared to its counterparts such as nylon 6/6. PPA is stronger and stiffer compared to other polyamides and possesses high thermal capabilities. Furthermore, it is less sensitive to moisture and has substantial creep resistance and chemical fatigue. PPA resin is used in an extensive range of applications due to its exceptional thermal, electrical, and physical properties. The resin offers resistance to infrared soldering environments, unlike many other resins. Moreover, PPA is cost-effective compared to other polyamides. The competitive advantages of PPA mentioned above are expected to drive the polyphthalamide resin market during the forecast period.

Polyphthalamide Resin Market: Drivers and Restraints

Polyphthalamide resin is used as a substitute for metal in numerous applications such as automobile and electronics.  PPA resin allows cost effective production of lightweight automotive components that can handle high mechanical loads. This is expected to drive the demand for PPA resins in the next few years. Manufacturers are focusing on light weight components and miniaturization in industries such as electrical & electronics. Electrical & electronic components are getting smaller in size and are expected to offer good performance even at extreme temperatures. Rise in consumer demand for lightweight electronic and electrical products with added flame retardant and temperature resistant performance is anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period.

Polyphthalamide Resin Market: Segmentation

Based on end-use industry, the polyphthalamide resin market can be segmented into:

  • Automotive
  • Electrical & Electronics
  • Sports & Leisure
  • Oil & Gas
