Industry participants broadly use propylene nonwoven fabrics due to its availability in variety of grades and properties. Polyester is estimated to witness steady growth rate owing to growing penetration in applications such as automotive, agriculture and medical equipments. Spun laid nonwoven technology emerged as a major technology segment accounting for nearly 50% of the market volume in 2014 due to increasing usage in hygiene and medical applications. Meltdown technology is anticipated to witness steady growth rate due to increasing applications in automotive parts. Market is dominated by durable applications due to increasing construction spending in promising markets such as Brazil, China and India which led to demand for geotextiles in roads and buildings.

Asia Pacific commanded the global market accounting for more than 40%. Demand for nonwoven fabrics in hygiene applications is driven by growing birthrate in China, India and rising income levels. Rapid industrialization and increasing population in China and India have resulted in demand for superior infrastructure which led to increased construction spending. North America and Eastern Europe are mature markets and are expected to be at moderate growth rates during the forecast period. Growth of construction and automotive industry especially in BRIC nations is estimated to spur the market growth in durable applications.
