The global nonwoven fabrics market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2014-2019.

Nonwoven fabrics refer to cohesive fabric-like textiles manufactured by arranging fibers together using heat, chemicals or pressure. Some of the commonly used production methods include fiber entanglement and chemical and thermal bonding of materials, such as olefin, polyester and rayon.

In comparison to the traditionally used fabrics, such as cotton, linen, wool and silk, nonwoven fabrics are lighter, do not require weaving or knitting to manufacture interlinings, insulation and protection clothing, industrial workwear, chemical defense suits and footwear components. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, such as personal care & hygiene, automotive, healthcare, building & construction and filtration.

Significant growth in the textile industry across the globe represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, there has been a substantial increase in the demand for nonwoven hygiene products in the healthcare centers.

This, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. Nonwoven fabrics are widely used to manufacture healthcare essentials, such as face masks, isolation gowns, drapes, single-use caps and shoe and headcovers. In line with this, the widespread adoption of these fabrics for the production of light-weight automobile components is also contributing to the growth of the market.

Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of smart nonwoven fabrics and blast-resistant curtains, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These textiles expand under tension, thereby absorbing shockwaves and catching flying debris.

Other factors, including the technological advancements in the manufacturing technologies, along with research and development (R&D) in the production of environment-friendly fabrics, are anticipated to drive the market further.

Looking forward, the publisher expects the global nonwoven fabrics market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
