Nonwovens - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Through 2021, US demand for nonwovens will expand 3.4% annually to $8.0 billion. With over 70% of nonwovens sales associated with disposable goods, demand is driven by sales of end-use products such as wipes, personal hygiene products, and filters, all of which are largely mature nonwoven outlets. Demand for nonwovens will benefit from growth in construction spendng and battery production. Many markets for goods containing nonwovens, such as personal hygiene products, furniture, electrical and electronic goods and components, and medical supplies, will see sizable and rising portions of domestic end-use product demand met by imports rather than US-produced goods.

This study presents historical data and forecasts for 2021 by product (spunmelt, carded, wetlaid, and airlaid) and market. Disposables markets include consumer, filtration, and medical markets. Nondisposables markets include construction, electrical and electronics, motor vehicle, carpet and rug markets, and furnishings. The study also analyzes raw materials consumption, evaluates company market share, and assesses industry competitors, including Berkshire Hathaway, Berry Global, DuPont, Freudenberg, and Kimberly-Clark.
