US Demand for Nonwovens To Reach $6.3 Billion


Demand for nonwoven roll goods is projected to rise at a 3.7% annual rate to $6.3 billion in 2013, according to a new study from The Freedonia Group. US population, household, and personal income growth will result in higher expenditures for wipes and other consumer disposables. The aging US population will boost demand for nonwovens used in medical/surgical and adult incontinence products.

Conversely, the US represents a mature market for a number of nonwoven goods, including baby wipes and baby diapers, which will dampen overall sales gains through 2013, as will competition from other types of materials. These and other trends are presented in the Nonwovens study.
