Global Non-woven Fabrics Market 2016-2020

About Non-Woven Fabrics

Non-woven fabrics are manufactured by aligning various webs in parallel, cross, or random fashion and bonding with the help of various mechanical, thermal, or chemical processes. Non-woven fabrics are fabrics that are not woven or knitted. Non-woven fabrics can have specific properties such as higher absorbency, repellence to liquids, stretchability, strength, washability, softness, cushioning, filtering ability, providing a barrier to microorganisms, and flame retardancy.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global non-woven fabrics market to grow at a CAGR of 6.84% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Non-Woven Fabrics Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global non-woven fabrics market: Berry Plastics, Freudenberg, Kimberly-Clark, DuPont, and Ahlstrom.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Fitesa, Glatfelter, Johns Manville, Bonar, Georgia-Pacific, Lydall, Toray Advanced Materials, Hollingsworth & Vose, First Quality, Avgol, PEGAS NONWOVENS, Fibertex, Dalian Ruiguang, Asahi Kasei, Japan Vilene, Mitsui Chemicals, and Propex Fabrics.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Several innovative and novel hygiene products have been introduced to the market that can increase sales in the coming years, especially in the developing countries. The Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA) has listed a few novel products as the final nominations for the Hygienix Award, 2016. The trend of launching innovative products in the market can influence the customers, thus affecting the market size.”

According to the report, durable non-woven fabrics are being extensively used in geotextiles for the construction of durable roads and railways, filtration, drainage construction, and civil engineering construction projects. The use of polypropylene fibers and polymers is driving the consumption of durable non-woven fabrics in the geotextile and construction sector.

Further, the report states that one of the major problems associated with non-woven apparels is the size issue faced by the consumers. The current fabric technology greatly depends on elastic bands that aid in the adjustment of the apparels to different-sized populations. However, the apparels are available in a few basic sizes mainly due to a lack of innovation in the fabric used and the technology incorporated. Thus, customers have very few size options to choose from.
