This study analyzes the US market for wipes. For the purpose of this study, “wipe” is defined as a paper or nonwoven substrate that is soaked or otherwise infused with water or chemical additives (wet or dry) for the purpose of cleaning, disinfecting, sanitizing, chemical delivery, and other functions that are carried out on surfaces such as skin, countertops and floors, tools and parts, and many others.

Wet and Dry Wipes

Most wipes are single-use products. However, this study also covers reusable products that can be laundered and reused for a short period of time.

Excluded from the scope of this study are standard paper alternatives, such as napkins, paper towels, facial tissues, and toilet tissue, as well as long-term reusable cloths.

Demand for wipes is examined by product and market in US dollars at the converters’ level. Sales at the retail level are also provided. Historical data for 2008, 2013, and 2018 and forecasts for 2023 are presented in current dollars (which are not adjusted to account for inflation).

Key market segments for wipes include both consumer and industrial and institutional markets.
