Melt Blown Nonwoven Market Size Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2019 – 2025
Report ID: GMI4702
Melt blown nonwoven market is anticipated to see a significant growth all across the globe in upcoming years driven by their excellent properties and its low cost. Melt Blowing is a procedure used for production of thin sheets of nonwoven fibres. The nonwoven polymer sheets are formed when extruded polymer melt is subjected to gas blowing at high velocity.
Different polymers such as polypropylene, polyesters, polyamides, and polystyrenes are used in the process which ends with a self-bounding fabric as finished product. The micro fibers obtained from this process are considered to be of excellent quality as compared to any other processed fibres such as spun bound. They exhibit properties such as low to moderate web strength, fine fibre orientation, high insulation, and a fine fiber diameter of 0.5-10 microns which makes them suitable in variety of applications including filtration process.
Melt blown nonwoven market is expected to see a substantial growth rate in upcoming years driven by its rising demand in variety of industrial sectors including healthcare, filtration, insulation equipment, automotive, electronics and others.
The rising global demand to meet the requirements for personal protective equipment such as facemasks and wipes in the face of current COVID-19 pandemic shall positively impact the overall melt blown nonwoven market. They are extensively used in manufacturing surgical and N95 masks capable of blocking viral transmission.
The melt blown nonwoven market is expected to see prominent growth during the upcoming years due to increased demand for these fabrics in manufacturing protective gears. For instance, World Health Organisation called for a 40% increase in manufacturing of face masks all across the globe to serve millions of health care workers fighting this pandemic. Therefore, the supply of core raw material used especially melt blown fabrics is on urgent demand. In addition, the rising demand for hygiene products such as baby diapers and sanitary pads shall also contribute in the industry growth.
Moreover, the rising adoption of sustainable manufacturing practices in the business environment shall create lucrative opportunities for melt blown nonwoven market during the review period. However, high manufacturing cost due to large consumption of energy is anticipated to be a major downside to the market growth. Meltblown non-woven market can be segmented on the basis of product, and end user application.
On the basis of product, the market can be categorized by different materials including polypropylene, polyethylene, polybutylene terephthalate, nylon and polycarbonate. Polypropylene was a major segment in 2019 and is anticipated to show similar trends throughout the forecast period. Polypropylene is widely used in manufacturing of personal protective equipment across the globe. Moreover, the ongoing global pandemic is projected to further augment the melt blown nonwoven market demand.
The major end user industries include healthcare, textile, electricals & electronics, automotive and others. The rising demand for hygiene products in developing regions is projected to consequently boost the demand for melt blown non-woven products from the healthcare industry.
The global pandemic COVID-19 has largely impacted the demand for production of protective face mask all across the world. China is manufacturing around 1.6 million units of N95 masks per day. Major regions including Asia Pacific, North America, Europe among other is expected to witness significant rise in demand for melt blown nonwoven products owing to substantial growth in healthcare and hygiene industry.
