Nonwovens demand expected to rise

Industry News, News | April 7, 2016 | By:

Global demand for nonwovens is forecast to rise 5.4 percent annually to 11.1 million metric tons in 2019 according to a new study from Freedonia Group, an industry research firm based in Cleveland, Ohio.

The study, World Nonwovens, anticipates that demand will be driven by an expected increase in the manufacture of key products made from nonwovens such as baby diapers, adult incontinence products, filters, wipes, disposable medical gowns and various automotive components. Additionally, higher penetration rates of many of these end products, such as baby diapers in developing countries and adult incontinence products in developed countries, will promote rising nonwovens requirements.
