US wipes demand will rise 3.6 percent yearly through 2018 to $2.9 billion. Disinfectant and electrostatic wipes will grow the fastest. The industrial market will outpace consumer uses based in part on a relaxed EPA rule that will help disposable wipes compete with reusable, laundered shop towels. Flushability will remain a factor in consumer and health care uses.

This study analyzes the $2.5 billion US wipes industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by market (e.g., personal care, household care, health care, manufacturing, commercial), substrate (e.g., spunlaced nonwovens, airlaid nonwovens) and chemical (e.g., surfactants, emollients, fragrances, solvents).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry participants, including Nice-Pak, Kimberly-Clark and Procter & Gamble.
