Nonwoven fabrics are produced in a web-like pattern under heat and pressure, and are manufactured as per the requirement of the specific application. Nonwoven fabrics may have a limited life, be of single use or be a durable fabric. Their appearance, texture and strength is similar to a woven fabric with a thick padding. Non-woven fabrics that are highly absorbent and have high elasticity and filtration capacity are preferred. Spunlaid, wetlaid, and drylaid are the major technologies that are used to manufacture nonwoven fabric.

Some of the major factors, such as the increasing usage of nonwoven fabric in the healthcare industry, especially in developing markets such as India, due to the rising health concerns among consumers; and growing usage in the automotive industry, are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. With the rapid technological advancements, nonwoven fabric has established a large application base in numerous end-user industries, such as the agricultural and building & construction industries, which, in turn, boost the market growth. On the flipside, the difficulty in procurement of raw materials may hinder the nonwoven fabric market growth.
