Remarkable growth and global success of nonwovens
• In the historical period (2008–2018) production increased 5.7%, led by growth in spunbond/spunmelt and drylaid hydroentanglement.
• China leads the growth in production, adding an additional 3.3 million tons from the end of 2008 through to 2018, representing a 10.8% annual growth rate.
• Across the nonwovens end use segments, transportation and wipes production expanded at the fastest rates, while absorbent hygiene applications recorded the highest incremental volume, with 1.3 million tons.
