The Future of Airlaid Nonwovens to 2022 forecasts global airlaid to grow to $2.5 billion, and consume 8.2 billion square metres or 654,500 tonnes by 2022. This is up from a market value of $1.8 billion and consumption of $6.5 billion square metres or 506,600 tonnes in 2017. Annual growth rates (2017-2022) are projected to be 6.6% ($), 4.8% (m2), and 5.3% (tonnes). 

While there are some supply issues in certain regions and for certain airlaid products, the global supply/demand situation is currently balanced.  Airlaid demand is growing at about 5% per year though.
