Nonwoven Containers Market Size Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2022 – 2028

  • Report ID: GMI4705

Global nonwoven containers market size is poised to record a healthy CAGR from 2022 to 2028. This upsurge is on account of the growing popularity of nonwovens across a range of packaging end-users. The product finds extensive applicability across the transportation sector in bale wraps, sacks, bags, and envelopes. Other applications include industrial bags, luxury inner and outer packaging, vacuum cleaner bags, laundry and dry-cleaning products, metal wrap, and others.

Based on material, the polypropylene segment is expected to register appreciable growth over the analysis period. This rise can be credited to the ability of the product to mimic the strength, texture, and appearance of woven fabrics. Furthermore, the material is used for the creation of reusable shopping bags ranging from smaller die cut handle shoppers to large sized tote bags. The advantage of using polypropylene is that the bags are affordable and provide tariff free options for various brands.

By end-use, the food & beverage segment is anticipated to account for a commendable share in the nonwoven containers market through 2028. This is because nonwovens are deployed across an array of food contact solutions and provide the benefit of improved shelf-life for many perishables. Different uses of nonwoven products in the food & beverage industry comprise bags & sachets, food wraps, absorbent pads, tea & coffee bags, sacks, insulation bags, and others. The products provide high tear resistance and are easy to recycle and compost, which are key factors impelling segmental growth through the forecast period.

Citing the regional landscape, North America nonwoven containers market share is estimated to observe lucrative expansion by 2028 owing to an increase in capacity expansion initiatives by regional industry participants. For instance, in August 2021, Berry announced plans for the establishment of a new recycling unit in Leamington Spa, UK, in an effort towards the production of certified FDA post-consumer rPP (recycled polypropylene) for use in packaging. The new unit will recycle, sort, wash, and sift used plastics for the production of food-grade materials with a target purity standard of 99.9%.

Major players in the nonwoven containers industry comprise PET Power, Masterchem, Amcor Limited, Gerresheimer AG, CCL Industries, Berry Plastic Group Inc., and others. These companies are focused on the implementation of strategic initiatives including collaborative agreements, partnerships, acquisitions, mergers, and the development of new products for the consolidation of their position in the market.

For instance, in April 2021, Resilux announced a major technology investment that was set to double the company’s bottle-to-bottle PET recycling capacity with equipment from Erema. The new VACUNITE bottle-to-bottle system was aimed at helping Resilux in enhancing its production of food grade recycled PET.

Analyzing the impact of COVID-19 on nonwoven containers market expansion

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has led to an increase in the demand for nonwoven containers for ensuring product hygiene and safety across various sectors. Numerous manufacturers are, therefore, entering into collaborations for gaining a competitive edge in the industry.

For instance, in May 2020, ExxonMobil responded to an initiative by the NWI (Nonwovens Institute) which was in search of polymers for the fabrication of specialty nonwoven fabrics that are utilized for PPE (personal protective equipment). NWI came forward for supplying the meltblown and spunbond nonwoven fabrics to the producers of medical masks, intending to help frontline medical workers in getting PPE kits. Similar initiatives are expected to propel product adoption across various end-user industries through the pandemic period.
