Non-woven fabrics are innovative fabrics like engineered material produced directly from fiber, bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat, or solvent treatment. Such produced fabrics have an extensive variety of applications across various industries. The research report titled Global Non-Woven Fabric Market Overview, 2020-26 categorizes the market to forecast the revenues and analyze the trends in each of the following segments: based on polymer type (Polypropylene, Polyethylene, PET, Wood Pulp, Rayon & Others), by layer type (Single Layer & Multi-Layer), by technology (Spun-Bond, Wet Laid, Dry Laid & Others), by application (Hygiene, Medical, Filtration, Automotive, Building & Construction & others), based on region, countries & major companies.

The growth of the nonwoven fabrics market is attributed to the increase in demand for nonwoven products & solutions for hygiene, medical, construction, and filtration applications. The key growth drivers of the nonwoven fabrics market are the growth of the modern healthcare sector in the emerging markets, rise in birth rate, and increase in the geriatric population in the western countries. The global nonwoven fabric market was valued at USD 32.76 Billion in the year 2015. The nonwoven manufacturers around the globe are expanding their production capacity and investing in machinery to manufacture healthcare essentials in response to the pandemic. COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for single layer nonwoven fabrics. The leading segment was valued at USD 34.63 Billion in the year 2020.

The use of nonwoven fabrics in medical applications is increasing due to the introduction of products with reduced costs for use in cost-sensitive hospitals. Products, such as disposable & reusable surgical gowns, drapes, gloves, and instrument wraps, are widely used in hospitals. Several government initiatives to control Hospital Acquired Infections promote the use of nonwoven medical products, such as disposable patient gowns, drapes, and linens that help reduce the spread of infections. Through the forecasted period, the market is expected to show a value difference of USD 17.72 Billion, while a volume difference of 8.34 Million Tonnes.

Spun bond is one of the most preferred technologies through which nonwoven fabrics can be produced in higher quantities. The market is led by the spun bond technology, which with dry-laid technology accounts for a little less than 3/4th of the market. The dominant market position of the segment can be attributed to the increase in the demand for these spun-bond nonwovens across various applications in hygiene products, construction, coating substrates, agriculture, battery separators, wipes, and filtration. Other than these two major technologies, the wet-laid technology is to have a highly anticipated CAGR in the coming period. The automotive segment is to witness a high usage growth of the product in the coming period, which is to record a CAGR of 8.50%.

Although the fertility rate in most regions across the world is declining at a slow pace, the child population in the Asia Pacific is projected to increase in the near future. This will essentially be due to relaxation in the one-child policy in China and increasing birth rates in South East Asian countries. The Asia-Pacific region dominates the market both in terms of value & volume, declining in value and inclining in volume. Although the consumption in China is high, per capita consumption in the country is much lesser as compared to developed regions. Growing demand for baby diapers is driving spun-bond propylene nonwoven fabric demand in the region. Latin America, along with Middle East & Africa contributed the lowest to the global market, not even to a share of 15%.

The nonwoven fabric market is fragmented, comprising several large and small players, of which the top 3 players- Berry Global Inc., Freudenberg Group, Ahlstrom- Munksjö, accounted to an approx. of15% in 2019. The market is extremely competitive, with various leading manufacturers engaging in strategic partnerships to expand their market share. Other major players in the market include Kimberly-Clark, DuPont de Nemours, Fitesa, Glatfelter Corporation, Lydall, Toray Industries, Johns Manville, Suominen Corporation, TWE Group, Low & Bonar, Zhejiang Kingsafe, Avgol, etc.
