Nylon Monofilament Market Analysis

The Nylon Monofilament Market size is expected to grow from USD 1.59 billion in 2023 to USD 2.08 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.50% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the nylon monofilament market. Nylon monofilaments are mainly used in the manufacturing of fishing nets. The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. However, the market is expected to achieve a positive growth rate over the coming years.

  • The major factors driving the growth of the nylon monofilament market are the growing demand for nylon monofilament in fishing nets, the surge in adoption in automotive applications, and novel applications in the medical sector.
  • However, government restrictions related to the use of nylon monofilament and volatility in raw material prices are hindering the growth of the nylon monofilament market.
  • Significant increases in demand from industrial textile applications and the development of bio-based nylon monofilament are estimated to offer various opportunities for market growth over the forecast period.

Nylon Monofilament Market Trends

Growing Demand for Nylon Monofilaments from the Fishing Net Segment

  • Nylon monofilament is a single, continuous-strand filament of synthetic fiber, and the most commonly recognized monofilament is a nylon fishing line. Nylon monofilaments have higher melting points than polypropylene and are generally extruded at temperatures in the range of 260 °C.
  • Nylon monofilament is used to produce a variety of fishing nets owing to its cost-effective and durable properties. Expansion in the fishing industry and increasing demand for fish are likely to boost the demand for nylon monofilament for fishing net applications over the coming years.
  • According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, by 2030, the total production of aquatic animals is projected to account for around 202 million metric tons. Moreover, owing to reduced waste and losses and improved resource management, the capture fisheries are projected to grow by 6% from 2020 to 2030 in order to reach 96 million metric tons.
  • According to the Biannual Food Outlook of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, in 2022, global aquaculture and fisheries production will have increased by 1.2% to 184.1 million metric tons, with capture fisheries decreasing by 0.2% and aquaculture increasing by 2.6%. The global production of capture fisheries was estimated at 92.1 million metric tons in 2022.
  • The Aquaculture Magazine stated that, according to the Biannual Food Outlook of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the average per capita consumption of seafood is projected to reach 21.4 kg by 2030, owing to shifting dietary habits, growing urbanization, and a surge in income. The increase in the production and consumption of seafood and capture fisheries is further boosting the demand for fishing nets.
  • Hence, the demand for nylon monofilament is increasing in fishing net applications due to the abovementioned factors.
