The most significant feature of the nonwoven fabric is made directly from fibers in a continuous production line. For this reason, the choice of fiber is very important for nonwoven manufacturers. Raw materials have not only delivered significant product improvements but also benefited people using these products by providing hygiene and comfort. The Polypropylene polymer type accounted for the highest share in the market, which held to more than half of the share.

PET type followed polypropylene to emerge as the second-largest product segment in the global market. It is anticipated to witness a steady growth rate over the forecast period, while the wood pulp polymer type is expected to have a highly anticipated CAGR of 6.94%, among the major polymer types. Apart from this, the other segment which includes PA, PC, polyester, natural fibers, biopolymers types of emerging polymer types, is to have a CAGR of over 9%.

Rapid industrialization has resulted in increased pollution levels and leads to serious health problems and environmental hazards. To add to the prevailing environmentally toxic substances, the COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for single-layer nonwoven fabrics.

The leading segment was valued at USD 34.63 Billion in the year 2020. A multi-layer nonwoven fabric can be produced cost-effectively with improved filtration performance, cotton and other natural fibers are suitable fibers for making multi-layer nonwoven fabric filters. This segment has been showing a steady incline in the market share and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 8.85%, in the forecasted period.

Similarly, in terms of technology, the market is led by the spun bond technology, which with dry-laid technology accounts for a little less than 3/4th of the market. Other than these two major technologies, the wet-laid technology is to have a highly anticipated CAGR in the coming period.

The Asia-Pacific region dominates the market both in terms of value & volume, declining in value and inclining in volume. This can be backed by a fact of increasing birth rate in China and India, and the aging population of Japan, which impacted the demand for diapers & personal care wipes. Latin America, along with Middle East & Africa contributed the lowest to the global market, not even to a share of 15%. However, is expected to register significant growth over the coming years owing to increasing nonwoven application in construction and hygiene.
