Nonwovens in the US by Product and Market, 8th Edition

US demand for nonwovens is expected to increase 3.4% per year to $8.0 billion in 2021. Continued penetration of nonwovens into many products, as well as ongoing development of nonwoven formulations, will boost demand for nonwoven materials such as spunbond and meltblown.

This report covers nonwovens demand by Product and Market, including both disposables and nondisposables markets, along with data on raw materials consumption. Data are given in dollar value, area, and weight for products; in dollar value for markets; and in dollar value and weight for raw materials.

Nonwoven products covered by the study include:

Spunmelt (including spunbond and meltblown)

Carded

Wetlaid

Airlaid

Disposables markets for nonwovens include:

Consumer markets (wipes and personal hygiene)

Filtration (air and fluid filters)

Medical

Nondisposables markets for nonwovens include:

Construction (building construction and geotextiles)

Electrical and electronics

Motor vehicles

Furnishings

Carpets & Rugs
