The German polyamide market:
Brisk demand for PA 6 for packaging applications

02 Aug 2021 − 

The market for PA 6 for packaging applications was characterised by particularly brisk demand in July in Germany.

As in previous months, the strong demand continued to collide with low supply. The force majeure declaration issued by a polyamide producer in Germany for the upstream product caprolactam - and thus also for the plastic itself – was fueling the already tight supply situation, according to EUWID respondents. Other suppliers were currently also more or less unable to deliver.
