The drive for sustainable products and processes in all markets has been growing for several decades, though admittedly at a widely varied pace. Generally, the push for sustainability is strong when global economies are strong and political distractions are few while the incentive weakens when global economies are weak and political distractions are many. The nonwovens industry is no different and economic and political issues, combined with cheap oil and a maturing market have slowed the growth of sustainable nonwovens. 

The global consumption of sustainable nonwovens in 2017 is 3.7 million tonnes or 94.8 billion square metres (m2) and valued at $14.1 billion with  annual market growth for 2017-22 is projected at 6.4% (tonnes), 7.0% (m2), and 7.1% ($). These are slower growth rates for sustainable nonwovens, and even though all nonwovens are projected to have slower growth through 2022, sustainable nonwovens have slowed even more.  For example, during 2012-17 sustainable nonwovens grew 50-70% faster than all nonwovens but during 2017-22, projected growth for sustainable nonwovens is only +3% (in tonnage) and +12% (in value) above the aggregate growth rate for all nonwovens.
