HDPE Nonwovens (TYVEK) Market Overview

HDPE Nonwovens (TYVEK) market size is forecast to reach $3.9 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during 2021-2026. Nonwoven fabrics are broadly defined as sheet or web structures bonded together by entangling fiber or filaments mechanically, thermally, or chemically. They are flat, porous sheets that are made directly from separate fibers or from molten plastic or plastic film. They are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting the fibers to yarn. Nonwovens may be a limited-life, single-use fabric or a very durable fabric. Nonwoven fabrics provide specific functions such as absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barriers and sterility. These properties are often combined to create fabrics suited for specific jobs while achieving a good balance between product use-life and cost.

COVID-19 Impact

Global economies are currently recovering from the consequences of the globe-sweeping COVID-19 pandemic. According to the World Trade Organization (WTO), global trade volumes are projected to decline between 13% and 32% in 2020 as a result of the economic impact of COVID-19. COVID-19 has impacted the consumer goods and various packaging industry. Companies are facing significant reduction in consumption and supply chain disruption challenges. Lack of supply of basic raw material to the various end-use industry including food industry, medical and pharmaceutical industry due to the temporary shutdown of factories, blockage of roads, reduced access to input and services, labour movement and various other factors is hampering its market growth. Owing to this pandemic, the manufacturers are usually unable to come up with a wide range of products which is eventually hampering its market growth.

HDPE Nonwovens (TYVEK) Market - Drivers

Rising Demand of HDPE Nonwoven in Medical and Pharmaceutical Packaging

Growing Demand for Tyvek in medical and pharmaceutical packaging features tear resistance, durability, breathability, clean peel and superior microbial barrier to keep medical equipment and pharmaceuticals sterile throughout the lifecycle, and plays is a vital role, driving the HDPE Nonwovens market in the upcoming years. Moreover, DuPont provides Tyvek 1073B which provides the highest level of protection, making it an ideal choice for medical device and pharmaceutical packaging that eventually requires high strength and superior microbial barrier. In addition, Tyvek 1073B is compatible with a broad range of manufacturing and sterilization process and has a superior microbial barrier, that helps preserve sterling during both shipping and storage.

Apart, from these investments in developing countries for better packaging has also increased. Major players in different regions are launching new products in order to meet with the customer’s demand which in turn is contributing to its market growth. In August 2019, DuPont launched Kevlar and Tychem hand protection portfolio of glove and sleeve solutions in the Indian market which is basically designed to increase the workplace protection in hazardous environments from automotive application to sanitation, manufacturing and surface oil and gas exploration.

HDPE Nonwovens (TYVEK) Market - Challenges

Stringent Government Regulation and High Prices of HDPE Nonwoven Products

Stringent Government Regulation associated with the polyethylene serves as a major setback for the growth of the HDD Nonwovens Market during the forecast period 2021-2026. In November 2019, the government of Kerala has decided to ban the manufacture, sale and storage of plastic products across the state effective from January 1st, 2020. The state has also given more authority to the Pollution Control Board by laying down heavy fines for those found violating the plastic ban. High Prices of HDPE Nonwoven products is a significant factor hampering the growth of this market in the upcoming years. Hence, the low and middle-income countries people are unable to purchase it which in turn is restraining its market growth in the upcoming years.

Moreover, in January 2019, CBIC has issued circular no. 80/54 /2018-GST clarifying GST rates and classification of polypropylene woven/ nonwoven bags laminated with BOPP classified as plastic bags under HS code 3923 and would attract 18% GST. Hence, large number of taxes imposed on products would eventually increase its overall price which in turn is disrupting its market in the upcoming years.
