Global Staple Nonwovens Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A staple nonwoven is a nonwoven fabric made from short, generally uniform, fibers. The importance of staple nonwovens lies in their ability to provide good strength and integrity while being lightweight and economical.

Natural Fiber:

Natural fibers are obtained from the stalks and seeds of plants. The most widely used natural fiber is flax, which is made into linen and then woven into fabrics. Other types of natural fibers include cotton, jute, hemp (hemp cloth), kenaf, sisal hemp (hemp bark), soy protein isolate and others.

Synthetic Fiber:

Synthetic fibers are man-made materials that have a high molecular weight and low staple length. The most common types of synthetic fibers include polyester, nylon, rayon, and others. These products are used in the manufacturing of nonwoven fabrics owing to their superior chemical & mechanical properties such as strength & durability along with easy processing ability.

Application Insights:

Building materials was the largest application segment in 2017 and accounted for a market share of more than 45% in terms of revenue. Increasing construction activities across the globe are expected to drive product demand over the forecast period. Rapid urbanization along with rising disposable income among consumers is anticipated to augment nonwovens demand in building applications over the coming years.

Nonwovens are used as an insulating fabric owing to their high thermal resistance, which helps retain heat, reduce noise levels and keep buildings cooler during hot summer months. The use of such products not only saves energy but also reduces carbon footprint by reducing greenhouse emissions during production and transportation processes, thereby proving itself as a sustainable material alternative for insulation purposes.  Increasing awareness regarding environment conservation coupled with rising consumer preference towards green building materials is likely to propel nonwoven market growth over the coming years.

The others application segment includes industrial protective clothing such as masks, gloves.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising construction spending along with increasing demand for nonwoven products from various end-use industries such as building & construction, automotive, packaging, and textile.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe which accounted for a share of more than 20% in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to high product demand from numerous end-use industries such as building & construction, automotive interiors, industrial filtration applications. Increasing population coupled with growing consumer disposable income levels is anticipated to fuel industry growth over the projected period.

North America emerged as one of the prominent regional markets on account of high acceptance among consumers due to its superior quality compared to other synthetic staple fibers available in market place.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from hygiene and medical applications
  • Rising disposable income in developing countries
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of nonwoven fabrics
  • Technological advancements in manufacturing processes
  • Expansion of global trade
