In the past 20 years, the global spunlaced nonwovens industry has developed rapidly. in 1990, the global spunlaced nonwovens output was only 70,000 tons. With the advent of high-speed carding machine, the network speed is faster, which greatly improves the spunlaced production efficiency.
The prosperity of the industry is upward
Spunlaced nonwovens have the characteristics of soft handle, good drape, good hygroscopicity, good air permeability, smooth appearance and no fuzz, which makes it one of the fastest growing varieties in nonwovens production process. In recent years, the global spunlaced nonwovens industry has developed rapidly and has become a fast-growing product in the nonwovens production process. The expansion of the downstream market has also led to the rapid updating of complete sets of equipment and technology for spunlaced nonwovens.
Spunlaced nonwovens are widely used
Benefiting from the upgrading of consumption and the increase in personal hygiene demand, wet wipes account for about 80% of the downstream applications of spunlaced nonwovens. Because of the better performance, spunlaced nonwovens are also expanding the application scene in medical and health and industrial fields, such as medical protective clothing, industrial cloth and other products.
The competition pattern is scattered
The development of spunlaced nonwovens industry mainly lies in the expansion of production capacity and quantity. Most enterprises are small in scale and weak in technological research and development. They mainly rely on foreign production line equipment to produce a large number of low-end homogenized products, and take price as the main means of competition. The industry presents a state of complete competition, and the ability to resist market risks is weak.
Spunlaced nonwovens industry is a capital-intensive enterprise, in the process of long-term low-price competition, persistent low profits are easy to destroy many small enterprises, and the long-term concentration of the industry is expected to increase.
Overall optimization of industry structure
With the gradual improvement of people's pursuit of the quality of life and the rapid expansion of downstream applications of spunlaced nonwovens, traditional middle and low-end spunlaced nonwovens products will not be able to meet the rapidly changing market demand. This will promote the industrial integration of the whole industry, gradually eliminate the small and medium-sized enterprises with backward technology and weak financial strength, and optimize the overall structure of the industry.
As far as the whole spunlaced nonwovens industry is concerned, the common spunlaced nonwovens is now in a state of overcapacity and should not be developed blindly, but should broaden the field of product application while innovating technology. In terms of technological innovation, one is to develop differentiated products that can meet different needs through the development of multi-process composite, functional finishing, post-processing and other technologies; second, through the innovation of high-speed and high-yield equipment technology and technology, further realize the development to automation, digitalization, intelligence and green manufacturing mode. In the field of product application, it is to further expand the industrial application of nonwovens.
