Nonwoven fabrics refer to porous, flexible, and cohesive textiles that consist of one or more layers of cloth deposited in a patterned manner. They are bonded into the products using fiber entanglement, chemical, mechanical, and thermal processes. They are widely used for manufacturing durable and protective clothing, insulation material, garment lining, waddings, interlinings, synthetic leather fabrics, and shoe linings. Nonwoven fabrics exhibit high tensile strength, resilience, absorbency, stretchability, liquid repellent, flame retardant, and lightweight properties. They are also classified as durable and disposable goods that include one-time-use products, such as diapers and dressings. As a result, nonwoven fabrics find extensive applications across electronics, agriculture, horticulture, furnishing, and construction industries.

Market Trends and Drivers:

The global nonwoven fabrics market is primarily being driven by significant growth in the textile industry. Nonwoven fabrics are widely used to produce single-use and durable clothing materials, such as face masks, caps, shoe covers, protective gowns, fire retardant suits, industrial work wears, and chemical defense suits. Additionally, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and extreme learning machine (ELM) technologies to predict the porosity and air permeability properties of nonwoven fabrics is providing an impetus to market growth. Furthermore, widespread product utilization in the automotive industry for manufacturing seats, dashboard insulation, interior trims, airbags, and air filters is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Besides this, increasing product utilization in the packaging industry and extensive research and development (R&D) activities towards engineering eco-friendly nonwoven fabrics are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
