Statistics: nonwoven fabric production in Asia, 2022
published in Issue 123, September 2022
This report includes statistical data and analysis of nonwoven fabric production in Asia and provides detailed data for China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. In addition, the data are broken down by the type of nonwoven fabric produced, including: chemical bonded; thermal bonded; needlepunched; spunlaced; spunbonded and meltblown; other dry-laid; and wet-laid. China was Asia's largest producer of nonwoven fabrics in 2021, and production in the country was up compared with the previous year. There were also increases in nonwoven fabric production in India and Indonesia. In Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, however, nonwoven fabric production was down. The most important category of nonwoven produced in Asia in 2021 was that of spunbonded and meltblown nonwoven fabrics. Overall, nonwoven fabric production in Asia was up only marginally in 2021 after shooting up in 2020 and rising steadily each year between 2010 and 2019. Looking to the future, nonwoven fabric production will continue to grow at a healthy pace. Admittedly, the COVID-19 pandemic has put a dampener on growth in certain end use markets but the market for personal protective equipment (PPE) and wipes was strong in 2021, and growth in these markets is expected to be maintained in the short to medium term. Meanwhile, demand for nonwovens in other markets is expected to recover.
