Globally by market, the report predicts that the fastest gains will be in the construction sector, driven by the growth of the economy and by increases in population. In the developed world, investment in construction will climb from the rates experienced in the period from 2007 to 2012, boosting demand for nonwovens used in house wrap, roofing materials and geotextiles. Moreover, construction activity will also increase in the developing regions, as countries such as India look to improve their infrastructure, particularly roads and buildings.

Global demand for nonwovens is forecast to rise 5.4% annually to 9.1 million metric tons in 2017, according to The Freedonia Group. Nonwovens demand in the developed areas of the world, including the U.S., Japan, and Western Europe, is projected to grow at a rate of 2.4% per year, an improvement from the declines of the 2007-2012 period but still well below the global average. Nonwovens demand in developing areas of the world is expected to increase 7.2% per year through 2017. Spunmelt nonwovens accounted for 48% of global sales in 2012 and are projected to post the most rapid gains through 2017. Growth will benefit from increased production in key markets such as personal hygiene products. These and other trends are presented in, "World Nonwovens," a new market report from the Cleveland-based industry market research firm. - See more at: http://www.nonwovens-industry.com/contents/view_breaking-news/2013-10-24/world-demand-for-nonwovens-to-reach-91-million-metric-tons-in-2017/?email_u
