The global Nonwoven Fabrics Market is predicted to witness substantial development. Demand for personal protective equipment such as gloves, facial masks, facial covers, and gowns, is mounting, leading to high demand for nonwoven fabrics. But the scarcities are leaving healthcare workers riskily ill-equipped to care for COVID-19 patients. The world needs about 89 million medical masks and 76 million gloves per month to respond to COVID-19, as per the WHO. Coronavirus concerns have 86% of health systems concerned about PPE shortages. During January and February, demand for N95 face masks surged, up 400% and 585%. These statistics are demonstrating the need for nonwoven fabric required for manufacturing PPE kits.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended government and businesses to promptly escalate protective masks and gloves to meet the increasing global demand. WHO predicts that the firms must upsurge their production by approx.40%. An extensive range of PPE manufacturers operate as close to 100% capacity and prioritize the countries’ orders with a high demand-supply gap. The nonwoven manufacturers worldwide are intensifying their production capacity and heavily investing in advanced machinery to manufacture healthcare necessities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thereby, continually rising corona cases and the rising need for healthcare workers are predicted to augment the demand for disposable hospital supplies and nonwoven materials during the estimated period.
