    What is Polyamide-imide resin (PAI resin)?

    Polyamide-imide (PAI) resin is a high-performance thermoplastic that is known for its exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. It is classified among amorphous high-temperature polymers like polyether ketone, and polyphenylene sulphide, etc., that can be melted, moulded, and treated at consistently elevated temperatures.

    The resin is generally polymerized either with aromatic diamine and aromatic acid chloride anhydride (acid chloride route) or with aromatic diisocyanate and anhydride (Diisocyanate route).

    Currently, PAI resins account for less than 5% (volume basis) of the total high-performance thermoplastics market and less than 1% of the overall thermoplastics market.

    Market Drivers

    Polyamide-imide Resins are a good choice for applications that require low fatigue and wear with exceptional chemical properties. The expansion of the PAI resin market is largely dependent on the organic growth of end-use industries like automotive, electrical and electronics, and aerospace sectors. A few factors likely to spur the growth of the PAI resin market in the foreseen future are –

    • The market growth will be driven by the increasing demand for glass-filled PAI resins.     
    • The growing need for lightweight materials in the automotive and aerospace industries to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions is expected to boost the demand for Polyamide-imide resin.
    • The increasing demand for non-stick cookware is attributed to growing consumer awareness about the benefits of using fuel-efficient cookware.

    Key Players

    Some of the major players in the market are-

    Market Segmentation

    Product Trends

    The market is segmented into molding resin and coating/binder.

    Molding Resins lead the total market with a mammoth share. Molding resin is further segmented into grade types as high-strength PAI and wear-resistant PAI. Concurrently, the molding resin is also broken into process type as extrusion, injection molding, and compression molding. Wear-resistant PAI resin captures a large chunk of the pie.

    Coating/binder resins typically have solvent content and are formulated into liquid thermoset resin form, being used extensively in electrical & electronics; cookware and home appliances coatings; and to some extent on automotive and industrial coatings or binder applications.

    End-Use Industry Trends

    The market is segmented as aerospace, electrical & electronics, automotive, industrial, and others. 

    The Automotive segment holds the largest market share of >35% in 2021 and is estimated to remain the leading consumer of PAI resins in the years to come. Transmission and under-the-hood areas are of key application areas of PAI resins with some key applications such as piston seals, wear pads, thrust washers, engine cams, bearings, and seals.

    An expected recovery in automotive production in the post-pandemic market developments and increased penetration of high-performance resins is estimated to resuscitate the demand for PAI resins in the coming years.

    Filler Trends

    The market is segmented as graphite-filled PAI, glass-filled PAI, carbon-filled PAI, and others. 

    Graphite-Filled PAI is likely to maintain its dominance with a share of >40% in 2021. Graphite-filled PAI resin is gaining momentum in wear-prone automotive applications.

    Glass-filled and carbon-filled PAI are preferably used in high-strength and high-performance applications, such as the aerospace industry. 

    Regional Analysis

    North America holds a market share of >45% in 2021 and is estimated to maintain its irrefutable lead in the global PAI resin market over the next five years. The region has the highest penetration of high-performance thermoplastics including PAI resins. The USA is the powerhouse of the market in the region.

    Asia-Pacific is the largest market for engineered or standard thermoplastics but has a low penetration of high-performance thermoplastics. The emergence of well-known molders for PAI resins in the region is likely to spur the growth of the region’s market in the foreseeable future.
