Increasing demand for sustainable development for consumers and retailers is driving major nonwovens manufacturers to make more use of eco-friendly materials and processes. Smithers Pira's report reveals four important areas of development for this trend.
Sustainable development is a requirement for progress and quality of life, but it is difficult to achieve. In the authoritative market report of Smithers Pira - eco-friendly nonwovens to 2022 trends, eco-friendly nonwovens are defined as sustainable development and sustainable development of products or processes to meet the needs of the current society, and not by damaging the well-being of future generations to meet their own needs.
The market for all eco-friendly products and the driving force of the process are growing, for decades, although the pace of development is not so fast.In general, when the global economy is strong and political interference is low, sustainable development is strong, and when the global economy is weak, political interference, development momentum weakened.
The nonwovens industry is no different, economic and political factors, coupled with cheap oil and mature markets have slowed the growth of eco-friendly nonwovens.
In 2017, the global consumption of eco-friendly nonwovens was 3.7 million tons, or 94.8 million square meters, valued at 14.1 billion US dollars. 2017 - 22-year average annual market growth is expected to be 6.4% (tonnes), 7.0% (square meters), 7.1% (US dollar value)
The growth rate of these eco-friendly non-woven fabrics has slowed down, and even if all nonwovens are expected to grow slowly in 2022, the process of slowing the development of eco-friendly nonwovens is even more pronounced. For example, during the 2012-17 year, eco-friendly nonwovens were 50-70% higher than the growth of all nonwovens, but the estimated growth of eco-friendly nonwovens compared to all nonwovens was between 2017 and 22 years , Only 3% higher than the total growth rate (tons) and 12% (value)。
