Airlaid nonwovens are manufactured without making use of water. In case of manufacturing the airlaid nonwovens, separately loosened fibers and fine particles are uniformly dispersed in an airstream and laid on a metallic mesh for bonding.

Market Dynamics:

  • Global airlaid nonwovens market is expected to gain traction during the forecast period, owing to its increasing demand for female hygiene, as well as wipes based application. This is increasing due to the biodegradable raw materials used for the manufacturing of airlaid nonwovens. Furthermore, the airlaid nonwovens make use of sustainable and low cost of nonwovens process.
  • Moreover, airlaid nonwovens deliver maximum absorbency which is available in the thinnest form. This absorbent property is a driver for the hygiene related products
  • However, low density of airlaid nonwovens is expected to hamper growth of the global airlaid nonwovens market during the forecast period. For instance, its low density makes airlaid nonwovens expensive to ship due to poor utilization of shipping containers and other modes of transport such as trucks.

Market Outlook:

  • In case of regions, Asia Pacific and North America are expected to gain a significant share in the global airlaid nonwovens market, owing to increasing demand for flushable and sustainable wipes
  • Furthermore, in case of China, India, and Indonesia, the demand is expected to increase rapidly, owing to high population rate and low penetration of feminine hygiene manufacturers. For instance, according to the World Bank data, in 2013, the total population in China was 1,357,380.0 billion which increased and reached 1,392,730.0 billion by 2018. Moreover, according to the same source, in 2013, India and Indonesia recorded a total population of 1,280,846.1 billion and 251,806.4 billion which further increased and reached 1,352,617.3 billion and 267,663.4 billion respectively.
  • Another reason for increasing demand from the China market is due to the cheaper options of airlaid nonwovens available in case of the feminine hygiene care products
