Press Release   •   Jan 29, 2018 02:44 EST

Caprolactam Market Size is likely to witness a steady growth from 2017 to 2024 pertaining to high growth in nylon 6 applications in end-use sectors such as automotive, electronics, textiles, packaging, etc.

Caprolactam, is a cyclic amide or lactam of caproic acid. It is a colorless organic compound which is a raw material to nylon 6, an extensively used synthetic polymer. Caprolactam is usually manufactured from three different sources such as cyclohexane, phenol and toluene. The most commonly used raw material to produce caprolactam is cyclohexane via converting it to oximes by using hydroxylammonium sulfate followed by Beckmann rearrangement.
