The global Nonwovens Market is anticipated to accrue good revenue by 2021. The market is expected to exhibit a remarkable CAGR over the forecast period (2012 to 2021). High demand for nonwoven fabrics from the healthcare sector is the primary market driver.
Nonwoven fabrics possess high filtration capacity and high elasticity. These fabrics are absorbent in nature. All these properties are anticipated to augur demand from different end-use applications. Demand for hygiene products such as diapers and wipes due to rise in population is projected to bode well for the market over the forecast period. The resurgence of the automotive sector and use of geotextiles in construction are other factors expected to turn the tide in favor of the market in terms of demand. However, sustainability is expected to be one of the major challenges faced by the market.
Manufacturers are considering developing bio-based polymers to reduce environmental damage caused by their production methods. In August 2016, Swedish company Innventia decided to experiment by designing nonwoven fabrics using woodpulp and polylactic acid (PLA). While the softness normally associated with cloth was achieved but other factors such as tensile strength and thickness still needed further development. In December 2017, Indian manufacturer Deepanjali Dalmia introduced sanitary napkins derived using bamboo fiber and corn. Such initiatives are expected to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels for materials and encourage adoption of organic materials.
