According to a new research study published by Global Market Insights, Inc., the PET Spunbond Nonwoven Market size is expected to reach USD 6.9 billion by 2027 due to its wide applications in various personal care & hygiene applications.
PET spunbond nonwovens are heavily used as geotextiles to improve soil stability, provide aid in drainage, or erosion control. Earlier geotextiles were made up of natural fibers or vegetation that were directly mixed with the soil. However, modern technology has rendered it possible to manufacture geotextiles from synthetic materials such as polyester, polypropylene, polyamides, and polyethylene. The special properties of PET spunbond, including heat stability, permeability, tensile strength, resilience, and resistance to the electric current, make it suitable for civil construction. Moreover, PET spunbond observe a considerable demand in disposable protective clothing due to their high-strength continuous filaments.
PET spunbond is used in various textiles products applications such as automotive seating, carpeting, airbags, safety belts, hose reinforcement, composite reinforcement for automobiles, engine & wing components, and civil & military aircraft bodies. Furthermore, although the basic functions remain unchanged, advanced processing technology along with regulatory requirements and increasing users has altered the traditional textiles, making them multifunctional & complex.
Growth in the food & beverage industry will spur the product demand
The food & beverage industry accounts will witness around 7% CAGR through 2027 owing to its use in product packaging. They can be utilized as absorbing pads to maintain the color, odor, and texture of various food products, such as meat, fish, and fruit, among others. The spunbond traps the liquid and moisture inside the pads, preventing the bacterial growth, thereby allowing the packaged item to reach its expiry date while offering freshness, better color, odor, and appearance.
