“Capacity additions around the world are falling “a
little short” of the forecast growth in global nylon 6 demand. It
expects this to cause a modest rise in plant operating rates over the
next five years. Global demand for nylon 66 engineering resin is
forecast to grow at an average rate of close to 6% per year up to 2015.
In 2010, global nylon 66 supply was constrained by raw material supply
concerns related to butadiene availability and production issues for
key intermediates” .
