Nonwovens production triples in Asia

September 1st, 2011 / By: / Industry News

For decades, nonwoven fabrics were produced only in the U.S. and Europe. Numbers provided by “The Rupp Report” in Textile World show that the machinery has landed overseas and that Asian nonwoven manufacturing is way up. China has increased output nearly five-fold within 10 years, in part because of infrastructure investments. Japan, Korea, Taiwan, India and other Asian nations have all increased nonwoven production in the past year, despite the economic crunch that crippled other industry segments. Jürg Rupp, executive editor of Textile World, indicates that nonwovens are developed “for new market applications virtually every day.”
