HDPE Nonwoven Market Size

HDPE Nonwoven Market size was valued at around USD 391.7 million in 2020 and will exhibit a growth rate of over 5.6% CAGR from 2021 to 2027. Increasing demand for geotextiles in various applications, such as road construction, drainage, and agriculture, is projected to boost the demand for HDPE nonwoven in geotextile production.

HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is a petroleum-based thermoplastic polymer. These thermoplastic polymers possess excellent strength to weight ratios. HDPE nonwovens are widely used in various applications including industrial packaging, medical packaging, geotextiles, protective apparel, building envelopes, etc., owing to their versatile properties such as lightweight, durability, tear resistance, and recyclable.

HDPE Nonwoven Market Outlook

The rising application of HDPE nonwovens in geotextile is one of the major factors driving the overall industry growth. Additionally, the surging usage of the product in medical packaging is likely to offer new growth opportunities to the global HDPE nonwoven market over the coming years.

The rising penetration of HDPE nonwoven in the packaging sector especially in regions, such as North America and Asia Pacific, is projected to drive the overall industry. The surging medical device industry mainly in the U.S., Japan, and India has further propelled the demand for packaging, thereby expanding the HDPE nonwoven market growth. Furthermore, the rising application of HDPE nonwoven in industrial protective apparels is likely to boost the market over the next few years.

HDPE nonwoven apparels are comfortable and long-lasting, providing protection against a wide variety of chemical threats and hazards. Additionally, they also protect from small harmful particles such as asbestos, lead, and mold.

HDPE Nonwoven Market Analysis

HDPE Nonwoven Market by Type

The spun-bond nonwoven segment held the largest market share of around 43% in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 5.9% through 2027. Spun-bond nonwoven composed of continuous filaments is formed by an integrated fiber spinning, web forming, and bonding process. High density polyethylene spun-bond fabrics are finding increasing applications in various industries.

Dry-laid and air-laid nonwovens are projected to grow significantly during the forecast period. Dry-laid primarily refers to carding as a web forming process, and the resulting webs are bonded using mechanical, thermal, chemical, and spun lacing techniques.

HDPE Nonwoven Market by Application

The geotextile category is the dominating segment and is expected to grow at the fastest pace with a CAGR of 5.8% through 2027. HDPE geotextiles are commonly used in structural drainage applications including basements and retaining walls because they effectively absorb and discharge excess water from structures and soil. Additionally,

HDPE geomembranes are the preferred products for lining projects requiring low permeability, exceptional ultraviolet, and chemical resistance properties, making them extremely cost-effective for many applications such as hazardous waste landfills, solid waste landfills, C & D landfills, aquaculture, and tank liners among others. The increased use of geotextiles in a variety of construction applications to improve soil stabilization, such as drainage systems, landfills, road, and harbors, is likely to boost the consumption of HDPE nonwoven market in geotextile production.

The packaging category will account for around 20% by 2027. The segment is projected to observe a rapid growth rate owing to the growing adoption of the product in industrial and medical packaging. With the growing medical devices and pharmaceutical industry, the demand for medical packaging is increasing rapidly. Furthermore, the surging consumption of HDPE nonwoven in protective clothing is also likely to offer new growth opportunities to the global HDPE nonwoven market share.

High Density Polyethylene Nonwoven Market by Region

Asia Pacific dominated the global HDPE nonwoven market owing to the rising demand for geotextiles coupled with the growing construction industry, especially in the developing countries such as China and India. The APAC region is projected to grow at the CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period of 2021-2027. China is the largest consumer of HDPE nonwoven majorly in the packaging and geotextiles industry.

North America HDPE nonwoven industry is likely to grow significantly owing to the growing application of the product in medical packaging and protective apparels. HDPE medical packaging offers the breathability, durability, tear resistance, and superior microbial barrier to keep medical equipment and pharmaceuticals sterile throughout their lifecycle. HDPE packaging is compatible with various sterilization methods.
