As of 1998, the world's consumption of non-woven fabrics has reached 2. 4 million tons.
In 1970, its consumption was only 400 thousand tons, while by 2007, its consumption is expected to reach 4 million tons. Non-woven fabric manufacturers are mainly concentrated in the United States (Accounting for 41% of the world)
Western Europe accounts for 30%, Japan for 8%, and China's output only accounts for of the world's. 5%, but its consumption is of that of the world. 5%.
It is estimated that by 2007, China's output will reach 7% of the world's output and its consumption will increase to 21% of the world's output.
At present, Rayon still dominates the production of non-woven fabrics, and this situation will not change much until 2007.
63% of the fibers used in non-woven fabric production worldwide are polypropylene, 23% are polyester, 8% are viscose, 2% are acrylic fiber, 1.
5% are polyamide and the remaining 3% are other fibers.
In recent years, the application of non-woven fabrics in sanitary absorption materials, medical materials, transportation materials, and textile materials for shoes has increased significantly.
The global consumption of non-woven fabrics produced and consumed increased from 1983 tons in 800 thousand to 1985 tons in 1. 1 million and 1988 tons in 1. 4 million. By 1998, the global consumption of non-woven fabrics reached 2. 4 million tons. It is estimated that by 2005, its consumption can reach 3. 7 million tons.
The consumption of man-made fiber for various textiles increased from 16. 9 million tons in 1983 to 20. 4 million tons in 1988, to 30. 4 million tons in 1998, and is expected to reach 37 million tons by 2005, it will reach 38. 3 million tons in 2007.
The consumption growth rate of man-made fiber in non-woven fabric production is expected to reach 10% by 2005 and by 2007. 4%.
Part of the rapid growth in non-woven fabric industry consumption is due to the increase in auxiliary industries in China, Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
Factors affecting the growth rate, all factors affecting the growth of man-made fibers can more or less have a certain impact on textiles made of man-made fibers, of which non-woven fabrics have the greatest impact.
Population growth factors have less impact on non-woven fabrics than other textiles used in clothing.
However, if we consider the important application of non-woven fabrics in baby diapers, population growth is also an important factor.
The replacement of natural fibers has a greater impact on textiles, but has little impact on non-woven fabrics, because the production of non-woven fabrics basically depends on artificial fibers.
Commercial development of man-made fibers and professional application of non-woven fabrics: Trade in microfibers, composite fibers, biodegradable fibers and new polyester fibers has increased due to the establishment of international economic treaties.
This has a great impact on non-woven fabrics, but it has little impact on apparel and knitted textiles.
Replacing textiles and other supplies: this includes being replaced by non-woven textiles, knitted textiles, plastic films, polyurea foam, wood pulp, leather, etc.
This is determined by the cost and performance requirements required by the product.
The introduction of new, more economical and more effective production processes: the application of various articles made of polymer, competitive new non-woven fabrics and the introduction of special fiber and non-woven textile additives.
The three major fibers used for non-woven fabric production are polypropylene (Accounting for 62% of the total)Polyester (Accounting for 24% of the total)And viscose fiber (Accounting for 8% of the total).
At 1970 ~ In 1985, viscose fiber was most used in the production of non-woven fabrics.
However, in the past five years, the application of polypropylene fiber and polyester fiber has begun to dominate in the fields of sanitary absorption materials and medical textiles.
In the early non-woven fabric production market, the consumption of nylon was very large. Since 1998, the consumption of acrylic fiber has started to rise, especially in the field of artificial leather manufacturing.
