Global Non-Woven Fabrics Market: Information by Material (PP, PE, PET, Bio-Composites), Technology (Dry-Laid, Spunmelt), Function (Disposable, Non-Disposable), Application (Personal Care & Hygiene, Construction, Automotive), and Region—Forecast till 2023

Non-Woven Fabrics are textile fabrics made of randomly laid, parallel-laid, or cross-laid webs bonded together, either chemically or mechanically, with adhesives or thermoplastic fibers under heat and pressure. Non-Woven Fabrics are flat, porous sheets, made of separate fibers or molten plastic or plastic films. The term ‘Non-Woven Fabric’ is generally used in the textiles industry, denotes fabrics that are neither woven nor knitted. The physical properties of Non-Woven Fabrics are dependent on the choice of fiber, the technology used for fiber arrangement, bonding agent, and bonding process. Their structure can vary from crisp, soft-to-touch, harsh, and hard-to-tear, to extremely weak depending on the need of the particular application. As a result, the product is widely used in sanitary napkins, diapers, filters, tea bags, and textiles, among others. 

The personal care and cosmetics application segment is set to grow at a robust CAGR during the forecast period. This can primarily be attributed to the increasing demand for personal care and hygiene products across the globe. In recent years, non-woven fabrics have become an efficient alternative to polyurethane foams in major end-use industries such as building and construction, automotive, furniture, and packaging. The number of infrastructure development projects is increasing in both developing and developed economies, which is likely to fuel the demand for non-woven fabrics in the construction industry. The Global Automotive Industry is continuously growing on account of the increasing demand for both passenger and commercial vehicles in developing countries. Moreover, shifting consumer preferences in favor of hygiene products against the backdrop of rising health awareness, changing lifestyles, better standards of living, and increasing spending power in developing countries are expected to boost product demand during the forecast period. However, the major factor hindering the growth of the Global Non-Woven Fabrics Market is the high production cost.
