Melt-Blown Nonwoven Market by Product (Fine Fiber Melt-Blown Nonwovens and Dual Texture Melt-Blown Nonwovens); By Raw Material (Polypropylene, Polyester, Polystyrene, Polyurethane, Polyamides and Polycarbonate); By Application (Automotive, Medical, Environmental, Electronics, Personal Hygiene and Others); and Region - Global Analysis of Market Size, Share & Trends for 2019 - 2020 and Forecasts to 2030
Nonwoven is a novel, innovative, and engineered fabric manufactured from fibers by using a melt-blown spinning process. Melt blown is a traditional fabrication procedure that includes the extrusion of thermoplastic fiber-forming polymers via small nozzles surrounded by high-speed blowing gas. Melt-blown nonwovens are small diameter fibers which provide exceptional filtration properties, absorption capacity, and thermal insulation. Melt-blown nonwovens are utilized to make products which are used in automotive, agricultural, personal hygiene, medical products, construction, roofing, and carpeting.
Global Melt-Blown Nonwoven Market to surpass USD 21.76 billion by 2030 from USD 8.62 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 9.68% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30. The market is estimated to proliferate owing to increasing utilization of Melt-Blown Nonwoven in hygiene products, medical devices, household appliances textile goods, and insulating products. Furthermore, the demand for better performing and new products is estimated to boost the market in the coming years.
In June 2020, Lydall invested in the new fine fiber melt-blown production line to meet the increasing global demand for face masks. This new production line will enable Lydall to manufacture high-quality fine fiber melt-blown filtration media for N95, surgical, and medical face masks and significantly increase their supply and help alleviate the shortage of melt-blown materials, both in the US and internationally.
In April 2020, Ahlstrom-Munksjo has expanded its nonwoven production across its entire protective materials portfolio, in response to COVID-19. The company has expanded its product offering of protective materials for all three face mask categories- civil masks, surgical masks, and respiratory masks.
Global Melt-Blown Nonwoven market is segmented by product into Fine Fiber Melt-Blown Nonwovens and Dual Texture Melt-Blown Nonwovens. Dual Texture Melt-Blown Nonwovens held the largest market share in the year 2020. Dual Texture Melt-Blown Nonwovens are manufactured from melt-blown filaments. One surface of the dual texture nonwoven consists coarse filaments which provide an abrasive characteristic to this surface of the nonwoven web and the other surface consists of fine filaments, which provide a non-abrasive or soft surface to the nonwoven web. It is used as cleaning pads, wipes, and mops.
Global Melt-Blown Nonwoven market is divided by raw material into Polypropylene, Polyester, Polystyrene, Polyurethane, Polyamides, and Polycarbonate. Polypropylene segment held the largest market share in the year 2020 and will continue to dominate the market in the coming years owing to its application in personal hygiene, air filtration, and medical industry. Melt-blown Polypropylene nonwovens provide a better performance, improves uniformity and soft-touch features.
Global Melt-Blown Nonwoven market is divided by Application into Automotive, Medical, Environmental, Electronics, personal hygiene, and Others. Automotive segment held the largest market share in the year 2020 and will continue to dominate the market in the coming years. automotive manufacturers use the Melt-Blown Nonwoven to reduce the overall weight of the vehicles. melt-blown nonwoven fibers are employed in diversified transportation vehicles such as cars, airplanes, and trains due to their versatility.
Rapidly developing medical infrastructure and rising surgical procedures are expected to drive the market in the coming years. There is a significant demand for melt-blown nonwovens for face masks and apparel including surgical gowns, disposable drapes, and sterilization wraps in medical sector. The medical nonwoven products provide protection as they act as a barrier and forms an additional active coating for personal protective apparel. Additionally, due to global pandemic, there is a surge in the demand for melt-blown nonwovens across medical applications.
With the increasing hygiene awareness among consumers, the demand for melt-blown nonwovens is mounting. Nonwovens fabrics are utilized in personal hygiene products such as sanitary napkins, sanitary towels, tampons, baby diapers, & napkin liners. They reduce the cross-infection and enable a high level of hygiene maintenance due to which its application is rising in personal hygiene products.
Volatility in the prices of polymers including polyethylene, polypropylene, polyamide, polycarbonate, and polyester is likely to hamper the growth of the market. Prices of these polymers depend on the supply & demand of raw materials. The fluctuating prices of these raw materials bring volatility into producer margins which further hinder the global melt-blown nonwovens market.
