New York, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Non-Woven Fabrics Global Market Report 2022" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06323514/?utm_source=GNW
The global non-woven fabrics market is expected to grow from $48.21 billion in 2021 to $51.31 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4%. The non-woven fabrics market is expected to grow to $66.44 billion in 2026 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7%. The nonwoven fabrics market consists of sales of nonwoven fabrics by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) used in the manufacture of disposable and durable clothing, garment linings, shoe linings, interlinings, and synthetic leather fabrics.Nonwoven fabric refers to a fabric-like material comprised of staple and long fibers that have been chemically, mechanically, thermally, or solvent-bonded together. They provide specific functions such as absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, filtering, sterility, and others. The main types of products of non-woven fabrics are polyester, polypropylene, nylon, and other products.Polyester fabric refers to a synthetic woven fabric, known for its durability and low cost of production, generated from petroleum. The technologies involved in the manufacturing of non-woven fibers include spunbond, wet-laid, dry-laid, and air-laid. The various end-users of non-woven fibers include industrial, hygiene industry, agriculture, and other end-users. Asia Pacific was the largest region in the non-woven fabrics market in 2021, and it is also expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in the non-woven fabrics market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa. The non-woven fabrics market research report is one of a series of new reports that provides non-woven fabrics market statistics, including non-woven fabrics industry global market size, regional shares, competitors with a non-woven fabrics market share, detailed non-woven fabrics market segments, market trends and opportunities, and any further data you may need to thrive in the non-woven fabrics industry. This non-woven fabrics market research report delivers a complete perspective of everything you need, with an in-depth analysis of the current and future scenarios of the industry. Increased demand for nonwoven in the healthcare industry is expected to drive the growth of the nonwoven fabrics market going forward.Nonwoven refers to fibers held together by bonding or interlocking. The emergence of low-cost goods for use in cost-conscious institutions has increased the usage of nonwoven fabrics in medical applications such as disposable and reusable surgical gowns, drapes, gloves, and tool wraps are commonly utilized. For instance, according to Edana, a Belgium-based international association serving the nonwovens and related industries, in 2021, nonwovens production in Greater Europe increased in volume by 2.0% to reach 87.6 billion square meters. Therefore, increased demand for nonwoven in healthcare is expected to boost demand for nonwoven fabrics during the forecast period. The proliferation of new technologies has emerged as a key trend gaining popularity in the nonwoven fabrics market.Technological advancements have contributed to strong development in most of the textile industry’s product sectors, particularly nonwoven fabrics. New technologies are expected to reduce production costs, making the commercial production of nonwoven textiles possible.For instance, in 2021, DiloGroup, a Germany-based engineered nonwoven systems manufacturer, offers a unique additive manufacturing process called the 3D-Lofter, that uses a separate sliver feed mechanism that functions similarly to a digital printer. The sliver is fed into an aerodynamic web-forming unit, which allows additional amounts of fiber to be placed three-dimensionally in specific locations on a flat needlefelt. Nanofiber and high-performance material technologies are gaining traction as substitutes for standard membranes, releasing new possibilities for nonwoven makers. In October 2021, Glatfelter, a US-based global manufacturer of engineered materials acquired Jacob Holm for approximately $302 million including the extinguishment of Jacob Holm’s existing debt and other adjustments.With this acquisition, Glatfelter intends to increase their scale and diversification into attractive and complementary product categories with high-performing and innovative spun lace nonwoven technologies and advanced plant-based sustainable solutions serving the growing wipes, critical cleaning, healthcare, and hygiene categories. Jacob Holm is a US-based spunlaced nonwoven fabrics manufacturer. The countries covered in the non-woven fabrics market report are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, and USA.
