Identify growth opportunities and make informed investment decisions
Compared to biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) or biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film markets, the global market for biaxially-oriented nylon (BOPA) film is very much a niche segment in terms of volume. Its major use is within mainstream flexible packaging where its superior puncture resistance, higher tensile strength, better temperature tolerance, and superior gas and odour barrier give it an advantage over competing film substrates.
Whether you are a nylon film or nylon resin supplier who needs film market forecasts, a substrate converter looking for growth opportunities or a flexible packaging company needing to make strategic sourcing decisions, our studies of the global nylon film industry provide a detailed analysis of the factors driving the market, allowing you to identify growth opportunities and make better investment decisions.

Webinar: Polyamide and PBT investment horizons H2 2022 long-term update
Wood Mackenzie Chemicals is very proud and pleased to update and improve our polyamide model (“Yellowbook”) once more. While the H1 report (global polyamide strategic planning outlook) was focused on the strategic outlook, the H2 report is an analysis targeting the polyamide investment cycle. Therefore, our experts are going to look in more detail at the drivers and market considerations that could impact any business plans for capacity investments in polyamide. In this webinar we will explore: - What changed between H1 and H2 scenario’s vision in polyamide and PBT? - What is the current polyamide and PBT investment landscape outlook? - How to get the best advantages of the data and improvements of the LT data?
