Market Overview
Nonwoven fabrics are broadly defined as sheet or web structures bonded together by entangling fiber or filaments (and by perforating films) mechanically, thermally, or chemically. They are flat, porous sheets that are made directly from separate fibers or from molten plastic or plastic film. They are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting the fibers to yarn. Nonwovens may be a limited-life, single-use fabric or very durable fabric. It provides specific functions such as absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barriers, and sterility. These properties are often combined to create fabrics suited for specific jobs while achieving a good balance between product use-life and cost. It can mimic the appearance, texture, and strength of a woven fabric, and can be as bulky as the thickest paddings.

Market Dynamics
The non-woven fabric market is mainly driven by the rising demand for nonwoven fabric from the automotive sector coupled with the surging demand for nonwoven fabrics for various applications.

Increasing Demand for Nonwoven fabric from the Automotive Sector

The demand for nonwoven fabrics from the automotive and transportation industries are expected to increase for manufacturing various parts such as anti-rattle pads, column padding, boats, car mats, battery separators, covering materials, console box linings, wheel-well acoustic reinforcements, panel trims, upholstery backings, headliners backing, window frames and various filters.

Nonwovens are used for primary backings, secondary backings, and trunk liners as they offer superior properties such as flame retardancy, moldability, absorbency filtration, sterility acoustic insulation, liquid repellency, and bacterial barrier. Nonwovens are also being widely used in the transportation sector to reinforce tires as they extend the life of the tire, provide strength and durability, and are lightweight and cost-effective, which acts as a driver for the nonwoven fabric market.

Increasing Demand of Nonwoven Fabrics For Various Applications

The demand for nonwoven fabrics is increasing from various end-use industries the geotextile, packaging, medical, hygiene, electronics, and construction industries for greenhouse shading, pavement overlays, artificial turf, sterile packaging, fuel cells, swabs, roadway reinforcements, cable wrap, drapes, battery separators, drainage, and erosion control applications.

The nonwoven fabric-based geotextiles are flexible and textile-like polymer fabrics of controlled permeability due to which they are being widely used in the construction of roads and for land reclamation. Nonwoven fabric recyclable bags have become extremely popular with consumers as part of the earth-friendly movement as they are lightweight, sturdy, and cut down on the number of plastic bags being used. The rising demand for nonwoven geotextiles from various industrial sectors for various applications acts as a driver for the nonwoven fabric market during the forecast period.
