The two emerging market trends driving the global polypropylene nonwoven fabric market according to Technavio research analysts are:
- Increasing demand for baby hygiene products
- Emergence of bio-based polypropylene
Emergence of bio-based polypropylene
Bio-based polypropylene has entered the market recently. However, it has market potential. There has been a prompt demand for a replacement for synthetic polypropylene as the environmental concerns associated with the production and use of fossil fuel-derived polypropylene is increasing. This has given an opportunity for the development of bio-based polypropylene. A major factor that has propelled the demand for bio-based polypropylene is synthetic polypropylene which is mainly dependent on petrochemical prices. In the initial years, bio-based polypropylene was derived from sugarcane.
“For manufacturing bio-based polypropylene, which has a huge market demand, many big players are investing a lot in R&D. Since it is not health hazardous, unlike polypropylene, the emergence of bio-based polypropylene may challenge the market. However, the market size of polypropylene nonwoven fabric is likely to grow during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
