Market Growth Dynamics: Growth Factors

The expanding demand for filtering across a range of end-use industries, including the automotive, personal care, and healthcare sectors, is driving up demand for spun bonding. As a result, industry participants and research institutions are concentrating on increasing the use of this technology to create premium nonwoven filter media. For instance, according to the International Fiber Journal (IFJ) report from December 2020, NatureWorks LLC, a US-based plastic and fiber manufacturing company, collaborated with the Nonwovens Institute (NWI) to develop a new spun bonding nonwoven technology that enables the quick production of highly breathable and reusable N95 masks. Thus, driving segmental growth.

Market participants are leaning toward further growth in the nonwoven air filtration portfolio due to the expanding uses for air filtration. For illustration, in February 2021, the US-based company Cummins Filtration, which deals with nonwoven filter media, launched a new cabin air filter media for trucks and buses. Therefore, these types of product launches in the market will support the market expansion over the forecast period.
