According to the estimates of the market research company, P&S Intelligence, the market will demonstrate a CAGR of 8.1% from 2018 to 2023. Polyurethane, polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyester are the most widely used types of spunbond nonwovens. Amongst these, the demand for polypropylene is expected to surge sharply in the coming years. This is credited to its lower price higher chemical resistance, and super strong nature as compared to the other variants. Moreover, the popularity of polypropylene is rising across the various industries owing to its environment-friendly nature.

In addition, these fabrics are extremely resistant to abrasion and they are durable, have lowest thermal conductivity, and exhibit good insulation characteristics. Moreover, they are difficult to ignite and easily combustible but not flammable. Besides, these fibers are also resistant to water, which make them highly sought after in various industries around the world.. Hygiene and personal care, building and constructions, automotive, bedding and furniture, apparel, medical and agriculture are the major application areas of spunbond nonwovens.
