  • Report ID: GMI4721

Staples PP Nonwovens Market size will register considerable growth over the forecast years 2023-2032. Increasing demand for polypropylene nonwoven fabrics to manufacture adult incontinence, diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products will promote the industry growth.

PP nonwovens, in addition to their medical significance, are gaining huge traction across automotive and manufacturing applications owing to the array of benefits offered by these materials. These advantages include bacterial barrier, absorbency, liquid repellence, softness, acoustic insulation, and flame retardancy.

With rising disposable incomes and the growing consumer interest in buying luxury vehicles, the need for proper sound absorbers will rise and result in substantial demand for nonwoven fabrics. For instance, automakers reported a tremendous rise in luxury car sales across many developing nations in 2022. Citing an instance, Audi India reported a 49% growth in the first half of the year, while Mercedes-Benz India anticipates more than 15,000 unit sales this year.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic helped expedite consumer interest in hygiene products to prevent the spread of the virus. In the wake of the pandemic, hygiene product manufacturing picked pace thereby accelerating the demand for staples PP nonwovens. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of infectious diseases among women due to a lack of feminine hygiene awareness and increasing incidences of skin allergies in young infants will complement the industry trends.

Russian invasion of Ukraine could introduce new challenges for the manufacturers of staples PP nonwovens. The production of plastics such as polypropylene and polyethylene heavily relies on fossil fuels such as natural gas and petroleum. The war has resulted in massive inflation with constantly skyrocketing prices of fuels. However, the innovation and integration of advanced technologies in the production of hygiene products designed to address contamination, discomfort, and odor by controlling microbial activity is expected to enhance the industry outlook.

The demand for staples PP nonwovens in North America, led by the U.S. and Canada, will be driven by the improving standard of living and rapid urbanization across the developed economies. These areas represent a massive scope for hygiene product businesses. Multiple governments in the region are investing to strengthen healthcare infrastructure along with several initiatives to raise awareness regarding the importance of self-hygiene. Moreover, the increasing efforts to boost industrial output and expanding the automotive sector will offer lucrative industry prospects.

Europe is also likely to emerge as a key hotspot for the staples PP nonwovens market with surging demand for baby diapers due to the high birth rate in the region. In January 2021, Finland reported a 3% rise in the number of new babies born after a decade of declining birth rate. According to the Office for National Statistics 2021 data, the average estimates of women with children in the U.K. are up from 1.58 in 2020 to 1.61 in 2021.

Moreover, the U.K., Spain, and other Western European countries are experiencing a notable rise in the geriatric population. It indicates a substantial need for adult incontinence products, thus propelling the demand for staples PP nonwovens. According to Eurostat, more than 30% of the population in the European Union is expected to be above 65 years of age by 2100.

Major companies in the staples PP nonwovens market include Kimberly Clark, Toray, First Quality, AVGOI, PEGAS, Fitesa, SABIC, Mitsui, and ExxonMobil. These players are foraying into strategic partnerships, collaborations, and agreements along with new product development initiatives to achieve competitive lead. For instance, in March 2022, Avgol entered a commercial partnership with YanJan to offer apertured spun-bound nonwoven fabric solutions in North America.

The growing investments in sustainable, recyclable and spunbound nonwovens will pave the way for enhanced product development. Moreover, the increasing demand for advanced textiles to improve the aesthetics and performance of automobiles will complement the industry growth. Furthermore, the rising geriatric and infant population will proliferate the demand for staples PP nonwovens in hygiene products.
