Sales growth for filtration nonwovens will be realized from continued innovation in these end uses, including of products that exhibit:

  • better filtration capabilities while maintaining efficiency
  • specialization to meet unique end-use characteristics

COVID-19 Caused Many Filtration Applications to Slow, Decreasing Demand for Nonwovens

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative effect on 2020 filtration nonwovens demand in industries that were generally deemed “nonessential”. For example, demand in the motor vehicles market was impacted by the closure of automobile factories and a decline in miles driven due to telecommuting, while HVAC filtration was affected by the postponement or cancellation of building construction projects.

However, some of these 2020 losses will be offset by spikes in demand for products such as consumer water and air treatment filters, which have grown as more consumers have spent more time at home. Additionally, air quality in reopened buildings has become a priority as officials look to ensure safe returns for inhabitants and use high-quality filters to potentially remove the coronavirus.

Going forward, rebounding economic indicators and continued concerns over air quality will support demand for filtration nonwovens.

Product Development Spurs Sales of Higher Value Nonwovens

Suppliers of nonwovens for filtration products continue to innovate their offerings, creating nonwovens that are better able to meet or that exceed current performance requirements in their end uses. Developments include creating new composite blends, using finer fibers and filaments, and trying new materials. These innovations raise the average prices and overall value of nonwovens produced for filtration applications, which counteracts the trend toward nonwovens with lower basis weights.

Growing Education & Awareness of Filtration Products Benefits Consumer Markets

While the US has some of the most stringent environmental regulations in the world, continued and increasing awareness of the benefits of using filters to clean air and water will support demand for nonwovens used in filtration products. The consumer market in particular is becoming increasingly aware of poor indoor air quality and impurities in their water lines. Media coverage of these issues and education efforts by the filtration industry have supported market penetration into more households, which will benefit suppliers of nonwoven filtration media that serve the consumer air and water treatment industry.
