Nonwoven and Technical Textiles are the “NEXT-GEN PRODUCT”. The worldwide nonwoven industry has grown steadily at about 7.5% per annum in tonnage in the last decade. A significant portion of worldwide nonwoven expansion is due to the rising demand for these materials in the emerging economies. India and China are the key players contributing to this growth.
India’s nonwoven market is growing at a rate of 8-10% & going into the future this market is expected to grow at a rate of 12-15%. Government of India emphasised the promotion of the textile industry, especially by paying attention to the innumerable use of nonwovens in various sectors. Non-wovens and technical textiles have been considered to be the most promising and dynamic segment of the textile industry.
