Bearish market sentiments from construction, automobile, furnishings, apparels, and other non-hygiene segment is likely to result in slower market growth in 2023 amidst higher global recessionary pressure.

    • Raw Material: PP overall (approx. 48 percent), whereas PP Spunbond (approx. 40 percent), Polyester (20 percent), Wood Pulp (approx. 10 percent), PE (approx. 9 percent)

    • The top 42 companies account for approx. 49 percent of the overall non-wovens market revenue in 2019. They had a total revenue of about $20.1 billion in 2018

    • Global consumer spending, GDP, and other macro-economic factors are likely to have an effect, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Hence, it will have an impact on the overall market revenue growth of non-wovens. It will largely be impacted, due to reduction in demand, due to the Coronavirus pandemic from the non-medical and hygiene segment. Segments, like hygiene and personal protective equipment, are likely to drive the market revenue during this time period

    • The global demand for non-wovens has reached approx. 17.1 MMT in 2022. It is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.5 percent during 2023–2026; leading global technology is spunmelt, i.e., about 7.3 MMT in 2022 (approx. 43 percent of the capacity share)
