The Future of Wetlaid Nonwovens to 2021

Wetlaid nonwovens are the smallest of the major nonwoven process types, accounting for only 2.7% of global nonwovens in 2016. During 2016, 259,600 tonnes or 6.4 billion square metres, valued at $737.6 million, will be consumed globally. By 2021, this is projected to grow by almost 6% in value terms.

The Future of Wetlaid Nonwovens to 2021

Additionally, durable end uses as a group are growing at a higher rate and wallcoverings and other durable end uses are growing even faster. The wetlaid process is one of the most versatile nonwoven processes/products in its ability to process diverse fibre types, from fiberglass and carbon to cotton and abaca.  This versatility offers both cost and performance opportunities.
 

Wetlaid nonwovens continue to introduce and grow new products in some of the older, established markets while also participating in some of the newest nonwovens applications.  Wallcoverings are one of the older wetlaid end uses, now replacing at a high rate the historical market leading paper products.
