Polyamide (PA) is one of five engineering plastic materials which has good mechanical properties and competitive price compared to other engineering plastics and it has various applications including in the areas of automotives, electronics and aerospace industry. Even though PA market grows fast compared to other engineering plastics, it has few organized literatures regarding researches and applications. In this paper, we review overall background, characteristics, formulation, current market trends and technology development of PA resins and their composites.
