Nylon Engineering Resins (PA6/PA66) Market Prices, Forecasts, and Analysis

Market Update

July 2023

European PA6 and PA66 prices witnessed a substantial contraction in July, with PA66 prices experiencing a sharp decline due to overcoming historic resistance.

This downward trend was facilitated by lower costs, reflecting current industry conditions and market pressures.

Despite some stability in the automotive sector and lower inflation rates, a recovery this year appears uncertain.

The market faces an oversupply issue, exacerbated by competitive imports and decreased domestic demand.

The reduced operating rates, coupled with declining costs, have failed to offer a significant advantage due to intense market competition.

Prices are expected to continue falling, with a slight recovery anticipated by spring next year.
