Non-Woven Adhesive Market Overview The global market for nonwoven adhesives is projected to acquire USD 4225 million by the end of forecast period (2022-2030). Furthermore, the market is anticipated to register a healthy CAGR of over 7.5% during the assessment era. The non-woven adhesive is a type of synthetic fiber produced through extrusion processes that involve melting thermoplastic polymers into a molten state and then forcing them through a die under high pressure. This causes the polymer molecules to bond at the molecular level. These adhesives are widely used in the manufacturing industry due to their properties such as excellent processability, heat resistance, high elasticity, low odor, ease of use, softness, and high cohesion strength. These adhesives are also more environmentally friendly and perform better than conventional adhesives. Non-woven adhesives have applications spanning the industries like construction, automotive, packaging, medical, and electronics.
