While the spunlace nonwoven fabrics market is often viewed in tandem with the wet wipes market, spunlace technology also has a wide range of applications in the hygiene, medical and technology sectors. For manufacturers of spunlace nonwoven fabrics, the main sales channel of their products is usually the wet wipes market, which also makes the market fiercely competitive. Therefore, many companies are looking for new opportunities in other channels to obtain a higher return on investment. Although there are still many development opportunities in the spunlace nonwoven fabrics market, in recent years, in developed regions such as North America and Europe, investment in spunlace nonwoven production lines has slowed down. The expansion of new production lines or production lines in these regions is mainly in the following areas companies: Jacob Holm, USA, Suominen (US, Europe and Brazil), Spuntech, USA, and Mogul, USA (now part of Fibertex Nonwovens).
Carolin Weber, director of health and hygiene at Sandler, said: “Over the past few years, the spunlace nonwoven fabrics market has grown steadily globally and will continue to follow the same trend in the next few years. However, due to the entry of new players into the market, the competitive landscape is also changing. Constant changes, large investments by new players and capacity expansions, resulting in changes in the market supply and demand environment, have had a huge impact on producers in the Asian region. Obviously, nonwovens manufacturers must pay close attention to these market developments and Change.” Asia is the region with the highest investment rate in spunlace nonwoven fabrics, and Nanliu Enterprise is a pioneer in this field. Nanliu Enterprises has production bases in mainland China, Taiwan and India, mainly serving the market demand for disposable sanitary products, medical products and nursing products. In recent years, the company has invested nearly $100 million in Taiwan to expand its spunlace nonwoven fabrics capacity and is building a new factory in India. At the same time, in the first half of 2019, the company's new factory in Yancheng, China, started trial production of pure cotton spunlace nonwovens, high-speed spunlace materials and spunlace nonwoven fabrics with biotech coatings. The next target market of Nanliu Enterprise is India, and the company is currently in the planning stage of establishing a production base. According to Kerstens, previously, Nanliu's customers have successfully started operations in the South Asian subcontinent.
Elsewhere in Asia, full capacity of 15,000 tons per year has been successfully achieved at the new neXline wetlace line. The highly flexible ANDRITZ Wetlace technology, combined with wet-laid spunlace technology, is particularly suitable for the production of 100% biodegradable flushable wipes without any chemical binders. According to the latest guidelines of the European Nonwovens Association/North American Nonwovens Industry Association on flushable wipes, this product meets the highest environmental standards and can produce qualified nonwovens. To sum up, this article briefly introduces the current market trends of spunlace nonwoven fabrics, in order to provide useful reference for related research.
