The global spunlaced nonwovens market is set to reach $7.8 billion in 2021 as demand surges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the latest survey by Smithers, spunlaced nonwovens installed capacity will climb to 2.62 million tonnes in 2026 compared with 2021.
Much of the growth will come from Asia, with China alone set to install about 50 new production lines in 2021-2022.
During the forecast period, carding into mesh (CC) will continue to be the dominant spunking process. By 2021, its market share will reach 75.6 percent, not falling much. Wipes (baby care, home care, industrial, personal care) accounted for approximately 64.7% of all spines produced in 2021. Personal care wipes and wet toilet paper for adults and young children are projected to see the fastest growth through 2026. Demand for durable applications will be more dampened; While there will be new market opportunities in consumer hygiene, spines serve as sustainable alternatives to polyester or polypropylene based nonwovens competitors, such as ultra-thin roof coverings used in female sanitary pads.
