Non-Woven Adhesives Market Overview


The MRFR report suggests that the global market for nonwoven adhesives is projected to acquire USD 4225 million by the end of forecast period. Furthermore, the market is anticipated to register a healthy CAGR of over 7.5% during the assessment era.


Nonwoven adhesives are used to keep fibers together in nonwoven fabrics. These adhesives are antioxidants, plasticizers, tackifiers, and base polymers. They provide excellent processability, heat resistance, low odor, high elasticity, easy usage, softness, and high cohesion strength. Polyolefins, ethylene vinyl acetate, styrene block copolymers (SBC), and amorphous poly alpha olefins (APAO) are various types of nonwoven adhesives. They found wide-ranging applications in health and hygiene products such as gowns, bed pads, surgical drapes, adult incontinence products, training pants, medical dressings, medical wound care pads, sanitary napkins, and baby diapers. The global market for nonwoven adhesives has recorded enormous growth in recent years. The market's growth is primarily attributed to the growing use of disposable hygiene products. Furthermore, the factors such as the growing healthcare sector in developing economies, increasing health and hygiene awareness, significant demand in the automotive industry, and better performance characteristics compared to other conventional adhesives are projected to catalyze the market's growth over the coming years. On the other hand, susceptibility to creep or joint after exposure to high temperatures is the major aspect likely to impede the market's growth.
