Summary Methodology

Nonwoven sorbents market may show significant growth over the foreseeable timeframe due increase in importance of cleaning up activities across the industries such as oil spills and leaks by the adoption of ecofriendly materials. Increasing development in technology has brought consumer focus towards nonwoven materials which has motivated manufacturers to develop nonwoven sorbents for several industries which may boost the market growth.

Sorbents are modified and engineered materials, used in applications which require absorption plus adsorption. Commonly used materials as sorbent are silica, carbon black, chitosan and engineered nanomaterials. Environment friendly and non-toxic properties of nonwoven materials make them useful for different industries including automobile, healthcare, personal care and manufacturing industry.

Increase in product innovations due to remarkable growth in R&D activities has increased the quality of sorbents used in production of medical gowns and industrial liquids which are likely to spur the nonwoven sorbents market growth. The global hospital gowns market size surpassed market revenue of USD 2.39 billion in 2017 which further reflects great opportunities for market growth. Nonwoven products enhance the quality by providing high level of uniformity, strength and consistency based on particular application. Rising consumer awareness towards ecofriendly practices has uplifted the demand for nonwoven sorbents across the industries which shall boost the industry growth.

Spun bound melt-blowing process is used in production of nonwoven sorbents. They are made out of polymers in a small ball like shape of diameter about 1mm to 5mm. To convert them into a web like structure they are blown by high-velocity air. Meltblown and spun bound webs are combined at production stage to get variety of composite structural forms. It is extensively used in medical sector for health and hygiene purpose due to its use as protective material. Growing demand for products that provide extra protection in handling patients and protection against cross contamination in public areas with increase consumer awareness is likely to elevate the market for nonwoven sorbent products.

Nonwoven sorbents are high quality products owning to their benefits as the provide protection against penetration of bodily fluids in medical gowns and also helps in prevention from penetration of particulate matters in filters. Products improve functional value of the main product in which it is been used and also increases wear and tear capacity of the product which is likely to increase the product market in the forecasted period. Increase in demand for quality products along with growing concerns of safety in the health and care sector use of nonwoven sorbent fabric shall stimulate nonwoven sorbents market growth.

North America led by the Canada and U.S should witness increase in growth over the projected timespan owing to upsurge in personal care industry in this region.  As per a survey in 2016, nonwoven face wipe market is witnessing significant growth rate of 4.7% and predicted to grow at USD $13 billion by the end of 2025. Increase in demand for ecofriendly products in cosmetics has encouraged manufacturers to use nonwoven sorbent as a product in face wipe formulations due to its cleaning properties which may uplift the nonwoven sorbents market growth.

Europe driven by Italy, France, Germany and UK may witness remarkable growth during forecast period. In 2017, the nonwoven product market was estimated to be around USD $1.6 billion which reflect possibilities for the market growth in the near future in this region. Nonwoven sorbents are used across the industries due to their protective and absorption properties. Increasing health awareness and growing concerns towards ecofriendly practices has improved consumer thinking towards the preference in daily products which shall boost the nonwoven sorbents market.

Asia Pacific led by India, Japan and China may witness significant growth owning to the substantial growth in health and care industry. In 2017, the health care sector was estimated to be around USD $140 billion. The product provides extra protective strength to the materials it is used with which is the important driver of the nonwoven sorbent market. Growing health and care industry production along with government initiatives is likely to boost the nonwoven sorbents market. 

Global nonwoven sorbents industry is consolidated as market consist of significant players. Companies like Mitsubishi Chemicals Holdings Company, LG Chem Ltd., Kolon Industries, W. R. Grace, Calgon Carbon Corporation, Honeywell, Arkema, BASF, Clariant AG are key players in the market.
