Nonwoven Fabrics Market Size is projected to reach USD

Gerard Ortiz

New York, United States, Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global Nonwoven Fabrics Market is predicted to witness substantial development during the COVID-19. As the 2019 coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) pandemic is continually rising, international health care facilities have become overloaded by people requiring treatment and services that are possibly infectious. 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{05995459f63506108ab777298873a64e11d6b9d8e449f5580a59254103ec4a63} of health systems concerned about PPE shortages. During January and February, demand for N95 face masks surged, up 400{05995459f63506108ab777298873a64e11d6b9d8e449f5580a59254103ec4a63} and 585{05995459f63506108ab777298873a64e11d6b9d8e449f5580a59254103ec4a63}. 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{05995459f63506108ab777298873a64e11d6b9d8e449f5580a59254103ec4a63}. An extensive range of PPE manufacturers operate as close to 100{05995459f63506108ab777298873a64e11d6b9d8e449f5580a59254103ec4a63} 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.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a lack of understanding among consumers who consider nonwoven fabric goods detrimental to the environment (without considering the positive qualities of polypropylene used to produce nonwoven fabric) is projected to drive the growth of the studied industry.

Key Highlights

  • The global nonwoven fabrics market size was valued at USD 39,500 million is expected to grow at 5.6{05995459f63506108ab777298873a64e11d6b9d8e449f5580a59254103ec4a63} CAGR during the forecast study period. The mounting application base in the healthcare and personal care industry, coupled with surging applications mainly for COVID-19, is predicted to augment the market growth in the coming years.
  • Polypropylene nonwoven fabrics accounted for the most extensive product segment.
  • The Spun-bond segment dominated the market, by technology, and it is also probable to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast timeframe.
  • The increasing need for healthcare assistance and incontinence products and increasing current healthcare availability to developing markets is anticipated to propel nonwoven fabrics. Besides, the rising potential of as COVID- pandemic, Avian Influenza, SARS, and Swine flu is likely to impact the demand for disposable products positively.
  • Asia-Pacific dominated the nonwoven fabrics market. The Middle East and Africa is a comparatively small market for nonwoven fabrics; however, increasing nonwoven application in construction and hygiene is likely to register significant growth over the next few years. North America and Eastern Europe are relatively mature markets, and over the projected period, are projected to experience modest growth rates.
  • The nonwoven fabrics market is dominated by a few globally established players, such as Glatfelter Company, DuPont, Lydall Inc., Ahlstrom-Munksjo, Berry Global Inc., Fitesa, TWE Group, Suominen Freudenberg Group, PFNonwovens, among many others.
  • Industry leaders are progressively engaged in research & development activities to meet the rising demand in the market for nonwoven polypropylene fabrics. Berry, for example, released an expansion to its Synergex line of facemask application products in March 2020. The newly released mask will offer an alternative to conventional facemask layer construction with a multilayer of nonwoven fabrics within a single sheet.

Market News

In May 2020, the Johns Manville plant, South Carolina, initiated production to manufacture nonwoven fabrics that will be used for the manufacturing of disposable medical gowns. The new-fangled polyester spunbond nonwoven is intended for the production of Level 3 medical gowns. The fabric also provides superior liquid barrier performance compared to other materials used for level 1 and 2 medical gowns and comfort and stitch strength.

In April 2020, Ahlstrom-Munksjo amplified its nonwoven manufacture across its entire protective materials portfolio, in response to COVID-19. The firm has extended its product offering of protective materials for all three face mask categories such as surgical masks, civil masks, and respiratory masks.
