Non-Woven Fabrics Market Synopsis
The global non-woven fabrics market is predicted to acquire a stellar CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023) owing to the accelerating demand for personal care products, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Non-woven fabrics are referred to as textile fabrics which are made of parallel-laid, randomly laid, or cross-laid webs which are bonded together, either mechanically or chemically, with thermoplastic or adhesives fibers under heat and pressure. They are porous, flat sheets, made of separate fibers or plastic films or molten plastic and are generally used in the textiles industry. The structure of non-woven fabrics varies from harsh, soft-to-touch, crisp, and hard-to-tear, to extremely weak. They are extensively used in diapers, sanitary napkins, tea bags, filters, and textiles.
Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
Non-woven fabrics are considered to experience the highest growth in the textile industry. Over the last few years, the extent of non-woven textile fiber has surpassed fiber use for knitted, woven, and other textile products. Nonwoven fabric is occupying a major market share owing to the growing technological developments, rising awareness among the consumers, new product developments, and their pace in adopting nonwoven goods. Also, the growing medical and hygiene industries are contributing to the market growth. With increasing demand for hygiene and personal care products across the globe, the market for non-woven fabrics is estimated to flourish. The non-woven fabrics have also become an alternative to the polyurethane foams in several end-use industries such as packaging, building and construction, furniture, and automotive. With the increasing number of infrastructure development projects in developed as well as developing economies, the demand for non-woven fabrics is likely to trigger in the construction industry. Additionally, shifting consumer preferences towards hygiene products due to rising health awareness, better standards of living, changing lifestyles, and rising spending power in the developing countries are likely to fuel the product demand in the coming years.
On the flip side, the high production cost of non woven fabrics market growth is one of the major factors considered to dampen the market growth during the appraisal period. Also, high cost of raw materials and growing strict mandates for the textile industry are some of the other concerns likely to slow down the market growth.
