The market for non-woven fabrics is projected to grow from USD 32.7 Billion in 2015 to reach USD 47.7 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.86%. The segments considered for this report are based on material, technology, function, end use, and region. On the basis of material, polypropylene accounted for the largest market share, in terms of both volume and value, among all raw materials for non-woven fabrics. The spunmelt technology accounted for the largest share of the market, in terms of both volume and value. In terms of function, the market is segmented into disposable and nondisposable. In 2014, the end-use segment was dominated by the hygiene sector followed by construction and wipes sectors. The final segment, that is, the region, consists of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is projected from 2015 to 2020.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the market size included the top-down approach. The total market size of the non-woven fabrics was calculated, and accordingly, the percentage was allotted to different sectors in each of the segments. This allotment and calculation was done on the basis of extensive primary interviews and secondary research. Primary research involved in this report includes extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments. These data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary respondents is depicted in the figure below.

MarketsandMarkets projects that the market for non-woven fabrics is projected to grow from USD 32.7 Billion in 2015 to USD 47.7 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.86%. The market for non-woven fabrics is growing due to innovative developments in the industrial sectors, growth in the hygiene and medical industry, and rising demand for eco-friendly and high-performing products. Increasing awareness among consumers and their pace of adopting products is one of the biggest factors that led to the increase in the demand of non-woven products, especially in the emerging Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions.

The non-woven fabrics market is segmented on the basis of material, technology, function, end-use, and region. On the basis of material, polypropylene (PP) held the largest market share, in terms of both volume and value. Spunmelt technology was the most widely used non-woven fabrics-manufacturing process among other technologies, in terms of both volume and value. In terms of function, the market is segmented into disposable and nondisposable. The disposable function is projected to grow at the highest rate, during the review period. On the basis of end-use, the market is segmented into hygiene, wipes, construction, upholstery, filtration, automotive, and others.

On the basis of key regions, the market for non-woven fabrics is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). The Asia-Pacific region held the largest share among all the regions in 2014. This is mainly due to emerging economies in China and India, coupled with growing applications of non-woven fabrics in the medical and automotive industries.
