Non-woven Adhesives Market

Henkel AG (Germany) and H.B. Fuller (US) are the Key Players in the Non-woven Adhesives Market

The non-woven adhesives market size is estimated to be USD 2.0 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 3.1 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.71%, between 2018 and 2023. The key market driver is the growing usage of non-woven adhesives in baby care, feminine hygiene, and adult incontinence applications. Along with that, the rising awareness for high-quality products and growing demand from APAC, the Middle East & Africa, and South America are also driving the growth. However, the growth of the non-woven adhesives market is stagnant in the baby diaper market in developed regions, and the market is affected by the volatility in raw material prices.

The key players in this market are Henkel AG (Germany), H.B. Fuller (US), Arkema (France), Lohmann- Koester GmbH & Co.KG (Germany), Beardow Adams Ltd. (UK), and ADTEK Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Malaysia). These players have adopted organic growth strategies such as investment & expansion and new product launch to increase their market shares. Agreements, expansions, and new product launches were the most adopted strategies by major players from 2014 to 2018, which helped them expand their regional presence and strengthen their product offerings.
