In 2016, manufacturers of polypropylene spunbond and melt-woven fabrics in the nonwovens industry took full advantage of the market value of this technology and have a strong momentum of development. Polypropylene spunbond and melt-spinning technology is the world's most important non-woven production technology. DividPrice said that the technology is mainly used in the hygiene product market, such as baby and adult diapers, women's hygiene products, these products are non-woven The main application areas.
In addition, non-woven fabrics can also be used in the medical market (surgical gowns, disinfection sheets, sterilization bags), the construction market (including door / window covers, geotextiles), industrial or industrial special markets, and filtration and home improvement field.
The weight reduction of non-woven fabrics mainly benefits from technological progress. Technical progress is an important reason for the growth of spunbond and melt-spun polypropylene nonwovens. DividPrice pointed out that the technology in this field continues to steadily promote the upgrading of equipment, enabling more lightweight nonwovens to be produced more quickly. Once the performance of the machine is fully leveraged by technology, larger quantities of materials can be produced at a lower cost. Overall, from 2014 to 2019, the global demand for nonwovens is expected to grow at a rate of about 6% per year. And the unit weight of non-woven products will continue to decrease in the future. Generally speaking, until 2019, polypropylene spunbond and melt-spun non-woven fabrics still have great demand and growth space. DividPrice said that based on the completed and planned production line expansion projects, there will be 335 million tons of production lines completed by 2019, and global capacity will increase to 3.6 billion tons.
