Favorable qualities of melt blown nonwoven textiles, such as high breathability, uniformity, abrasion resistance, lint-freeness, and germ prevention, are driving product usage in the medical industry. Melt blown nonwoven materials with superior qualities, including virus proof, liquid repellent, and bacterial barrier properties, are used in applications viz., surgical masks, gowns, and drapes. The expansion of the healthcare industry in developing APAC countries, such as China and India, is likely to boost the requirement for melt blown nonwovens in medical applications.

Furthermore, the booming global personal hygiene sector propelled by rising awareness, a growing female workforce, and an aging population is driving the need for nonwovens with superior performance and qualities such as softness, purity, and moisture absorption. The expanding global population is a primary element driving the demand for infant diapers, and the usage of adult incontinence products is increasing as the population ages, thereby boosting product usage.

Volatility in polymer prices may hamper melt blown nonwovens market expansion

The volatile costs of polymers, such as polypropylene, polyethylene, polycarbonate, polyamide, and polyester, largely impact the cost of production. Furthermore, the rising adoption of polymers, particularly in the medical business during COVID-19, has elevated polymer prices. As a result of such price patterns, the demand for melt blown nonwovens in the personal hygiene and air filtration industries may be hampered. However, the increasing use of nonwovens in the textiles sector is speculated to positively impact the product landscape in the future.
