Global Nonwoven Fabrics Market Analysis 2020

Global Nonwoven Fabrics Market Analysis 2020

The Global Nonwoven Fabrics market is expected to reach $63.91 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 7.9% during 2019 to 2026. Non-woven fabrics are produced from fibers and bonded together by chemical, mechanical, solvent or heat treatment process. The term used in the textile sector to indicate those fabrics which are neither woven nor knitted, such as felt fabric. Generally, the oil-based materials and some proportion of recycled fabrics are used in non-woven fabrics. This proportion may vary according to the strength of material required for a particular application. In addition, some of the non-woven fabrics can be recycled after usage by using proper treatment upon it.

Factors such as rapidly growing demand for personal care and hygiene products along with a significant change in the lifestyle and convenience across the globe, and increasing demand for the non-woven fabrics among medical application including disposable masks, gowns, drapes, sponges, dressing, incubator mattress, wipes, etc coupled with rising awareness regarding environmental friendly fabrics are driving the market growth. Though, volatility in raw material prices is restraining the market growth.

Based on technology, the spunbond segment is projected to be the largest market for nonwoven fabrics, owing to the increase in demand for these spunbond nonwovens across various applications in hygiene products, construction, coating substrates, agriculture, battery separators, wipes, and filtration. Spunbond is one of the most preferred technologies through which nonwoven fabrics can be produced in higher quantities.
