The strength of the economy and demographic trends are the main drivers of demand within the nonwovens market, according to European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA) statistics. EDANA said that the capacity for nonwovens production has increased over the past few years by about 7 per cent per annum and will be even higher in the years to come.

“Consumption of nonwovens and investments by the industry are closely linked and related to the strength of the economy. This is what drives the demand of almost every nonwoven application. Demographic trends, like birth rates and aging population, are also important aspects of this growing market. Thus, the basic foundation for nonwovens depends on global economic and population forecasts,” said Andreas Lukas, Sr VP & division manager, Andritz Nonwoven, while talking to Fibre2Fashion.

With forces in engineering and process development, Andritz Nonwoven provides unrivalled expertise to its customers. Complete lines, rebuilding, upgrading and automation are part of its portfolio, making it one of the leading suppliers of technologies for the nonwovens and textile finishing industry.

Speaking about the trends in the nonwovens market, he said, “One continuing and major trend in the nonwoven market is the move towards lighter-weight materials. This reduces the tonnage required worldwide. As a result, there has been a decrease in fabric grammage (weight per surface) worldwide, and the square metre volume is forecast to grow at an even faster pace.”

The continuous pressure to reduce the cost of the materials used will force the company to produce even lighter products in the future, he added. (KD)
