Report summary

In this report, the second in a series of three in which the world’s top 40 nonwovens producers are profiled, Karen Bitz provides the latest information and analysis of the investments and strategies of 20 medium sized nonwovens producers, namely: Avgol; Dalian Ruiguang Nonwoven Group; Fibertex Nonwovens; Fibertex Personal Care; Gülsan Holding; Hassan Group; Jinjiang Xingtai Non-woven Products; Jofo Group; Johns Manville; KNH Enterprise; Mitsui Chemicals; Nan Liu Enterprise; PFNonwovens; Sandler; Shalag Nonwovens; Spuntech Industries; Suominen Nonwovens; TWE Group; Union Industries; and Zhejiang Kingsafe Nonwovens.

These producers together accounted for about 29%, or US$6.9 bn worth, of sales by the top 40 nonwovens producers in 2022—the latest year for which comprehensive data are available. Looking ahead, the global market for nonwoven fabrics is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% between 2021 and 2027, from US$39.8 bn to US$57.9 bn. Growth will be driven by demand for nonwoven fabrics for making lightweight automotive components. It will also be driven by the development of smart nonwoven fabrics and blast-resistant curtains. Further growth will stem from technological advances in manufacturing technologies, and research and development (R&D) in the production of environmentally sustainable fabrics.
