This report is the third in a series of three in which the world's top 40 producers of nonwovens are profiled. The report provides updated information and data about the activities, investments, marketing strategies and product strategies of Georgia-Pacific, Halyard Health, Jinjiang Xingtai Non-woven Products Co, KNH Enterprise, Kuraray, Mogul, Saudi German Nonwovens, Tenowo, Toyobo, and Unitika.

Saudi German Nonwovens has developed anti-static and alcohol repellent materials while Unitika has developed a new type of medical gown.
