Caprolactam, with the molecular formula (CH2)5C(O)NH, is a colorless
organic compound. Caprolactam, a cyclic amide of caproic acid, is a raw
material used to produce Nylon 6, which is a widely used synthetic polymer. It
has a density of 1.01 g/cm3 with a melting point at 270.8 ⁰C. This compound is
mildly toxic and can cause irritation and burning sensation in eyes, nose, skin,
etc., when mildly exposed. Caprolactam demand
stood at 144 KTPA in 2018 and is projected to grow at
a CAGR of 5.63% during 2019-2030 to reach 278 KTPA by 2030. Increasing caprolactam
use in various applications such as tire-cords, engineering plastic production,
nylon-6 and nylon-66 based textile industries is expected to drive the demand
for caprolactam during 2019-2030.
