The non-woven fabric production technology is different from the traditional textile technology, in the weaving process does not need to carry out the spinning process, the textile technology is similar to the papermaking technology, also known as non-woven fabric. The raw materials are mainly from the by-products of petroleum refining-polyethylene and polypropylene plastic particles, which are melted at high temperature and spinning to obtain short fibers or filaments, which are oriented or randomly arranged and bonded to make flakes, Fiber web or wadding is called non-woven fabric because it does not need to be woven but has the appearance and certain properties of cloth.

Non-woven fabrics can’t draw the thread when in use, and have many modern features such as environmental protection, breathability, light weight, moisture-proof, and durability. Therefore, they are widely used in disposable products, non-woven puzzles, hardcover flour bags, etc.

Non-woven fabric manufacturing technology was first applied in Europe and the United States, and spread to Guangdong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang in the 1980s. At home, it was initially used to make disposable masks, shoe covers, work caps, etc. The products are mainly exported overseas for the labor insurance market. It was not until the mid to late 1990s that the non-woven fabric manufacturing industry set off a climax of development. Since then, after years of exploration and development, the non-woven fabric industry has rapidly developed into the fields of medical treatment and engineering. The overall operation of the industry is stable, and the growth rate of production and sales has steadily increased. Some Chinese non-woven fabric enterprises and products have strong international competition. force.

According to data from the National Bureau of Statistics, the total industrial output value of my country's non-woven fabric industry has shown a continuous growth trend from 2010 to 2016, but the growth rate has slowed down in the past two years. In 2016, the non-woven fabric industry achieved a total industrial output value of 146.365 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 0.41%.

In terms of output, the output of my country's non-woven fabrics also maintained an upward trend from 2010 to 2016. In 2016, the output of non-woven fabrics in my country was approximately 4.11 million tons.

At the same time, in the development process, the non-woven fabric manufacturing industry has also formed five major characteristics: from a regional perspective, regional development is unbalanced; from the perspective of technological advancement, the level of various construction methods varies; from the variety of products , The variety is single, and repeated construction is serious; from the quality of the products, the quality needs to be improved; from the processing capacity of the products, the overall level is relatively weak.

The future trend of non-woven fabric manufacturing industry

First of all, the industry has a lot of room for development. On the one hand, my country’s economy is developing rapidly and residents’ incomes continue to increase. The demand for the non-woven fabric industry has not been fully released. For example, the market for sanitary napkins and baby diapers is very broad, with an annual demand of hundreds of thousands of tons, and a large number of hot-rolled fabrics are used. , SMS fabrics and airlaid fabrics, filter materials, insulating fabrics, geotextiles and medical fabrics, etc. The market is very large, and will become larger and larger.

On the other hand, my country's per capita possession of non-woven fabrics is only 2.97 kilograms, while the national per capita possession of textile fibers is 26.89 kilograms, which shows that there is still a lot of room for development of non-woven fabrics.

Secondly, it is expected that the non-woven fabric industry will be more concentrated in the future. The new capacity is more likely to be concentrated in the existing capacity areas, such as Shandong, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Jiangsu and other places. These areas have begun to take shape, and companies can basically consciously abide by the national pollutant emission regulations, saving the cost of national supervision and management, so the 'Matthew effect' of Hengqiang, a strong player in the industry, will be more obvious.

Third, the transformation of the non-woven fabric industry is imperative. With the continuous emergence of new technologies, the functions of non-woven fabrics are constantly being improved. The future development of non-woven fabrics comes from the continuous penetration of other fields such as new industries and automobiles; at the same time, obsolete and old equipment is eliminated, and production is functionalized. , Differentiated and diversified world-class non-woven products, and marched into the production depth, deep processing the products, forming product diversification, and adapting to the needs of the market.

On the whole, non-woven fabrics are gradually becoming an emerging industry in the domestic market. Although my country’s non-woven fabric production has developed rapidly, the economy is still growing and people’s needs continue to increase. Non-woven fabric manufacturers should open up a broader market, develop and develop first-class technical equipment, and produce more high-quality equipment. , High-standard, high-end products, make the non-woven fabric industry further development.

Foresight Industry Research Institute predicts that in the next 5 years, the annual output of non-woven fabrics will still maintain a growth rate of 6%-10%, and the annual output of non-woven fabrics will exceed 6.8 million tons by 2023.
