Global HDPE Nonwoven Market to Grow Around USD 669 Million By 2030

06-Feb-2023 | Zion Market Research

The global HDPE Nonwoven market size was worth around USD 413 Million in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around USD 669 Million by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 5.5% between 2022 and 2030.

The thermoplastic polymer known as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is created from ethylene. Polyethylene high-density (PEHD) is another name for it. It is tougher, opaque, has a high strength-to-density ratio, and is solvent resistant. Since HDPE nonwovens are recyclable, tear-resistant, strong, and light, they are frequently utilized in a wide range of industries.

The market for HDPE nonwovens is expanding significantly on a global scale. The global HDPE nonwoven market is expanding as a result of factors like rising geotextile usage of HDPE nonwoven, expanding use of these polymers in packaging, and rising demand for spun-bond woven. Additionally, HDPE nonwovens are widely utilized in geotextiles, particularly in filtration, separation, and drainage because of their high flow-through & drain-through rates and relative porosity.

Nonwovens break down more quickly than woven, yet they have higher elongation. Moreover, the availability of flexible lightweight to stiff & heavy structures, high tear strength, strong wrinkle & spray resistance, low drape ability, high strength-to-density ratio, and many other advantages make high-density polyethylene spun-bond nonwoven an increasingly popular material. All of these elements are accelerating the expansion of the worldwide HDPE nonwoven market, along with the rising need for disposable goods.

Furthermore, a few other key reasons driving the expansion of the global market include the constantly growing packaging sector, an increase in the use of HDPE nonwoven in industrial protective gear, and rising demand for medical device packaging as a result of the development of more advanced medical devices. Additionally, the global HDPE nonwoven industry may benefit from favorable prospects created by technical developments for the creation of novel products during the projected period. However, the accessibility of HDPE nonwoven substitutes may impede the expansion of the HDPE nonwoven market globally.

Global HDPE Nonwoven Market

The global HDPE Nonwoven market is segmented based on type, application, and region.

Based on the type, the global market is bifurcated into dry-laid non-woven, airlaid non-woven, spun-bond non-woven, and others. The spun-bond non-woven segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021 and is expected to continue the same pattern during the forecast period. Spun-bond nonwoven has several benefits, including low cost, exceptional durability, and simplicity in manufacturing. Additionally, in the upcoming years, it is projected that the dry-laid segment would experience significant expansion. Fibers used in dry-laid nonwovens are bonded using one or more bonding methods to create a fabric with integrity.

Based on the application, the global HDPE nonwoven market is categorized into agriculture, medical, printing, cargo covers, building envelopes, and others. The medical segment is projected to hold the largest market share over the forecast period.

The rising applications in protective clothing, sterile packing, and other areas are responsible for the segment's rise. The broad use of these applications across numerous sectors is significantly accelerating market growth. As they are the least expensive type of nonwoven produced using only HDPE, spun bond nonwovens are the most frequently used nonwoven for throwaway products and protective clothing. In addition, the leading players' quick technological improvements to offer their customers items of higher quality play a significant role in the market's expansion.

The market for HDPE nonwoven is anticipated to be dominated by the Asia Pacific region. The region is predicted to account for the lion's share of the market due to factors including the high demand for high-density polyethylene from a variety of end users, expanding industrialization, and the presence of several producers.

China is the world's largest producer of HDPE, and it is anticipated that China would hold a significant market share in the Asia Pacific region. The HDPE nonwoven industry in North America is predicted to remain in second place worldwide. Throughout the projected period, the U.S. is anticipated to make a sizable financial contribution to the market. According to estimates, a large portion of the market's expansion can be attributed to Europe.
