    Market Insights

    Melt-Blown Nonwovens Market is likely to grow form USD 8.81 billion in 2021 to USD 12.87 billion by 2028 at an impressive CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2028.

    Melt-Blown Nonwovens Market Size

    What are melt-blown nonwovens?

    Melt-blown nonwoven fabrics are basically made up of thermoplastic synthetic polymers by using a single-step process i.e., melt-blown spinning process which transforms polymer chips or granules as a raw material into the randomly-laid fiber web structures. They are made directly from the polymer stage to randomly-laid nonwoven fabrics.

    Market Drivers

    Growing applications of nonwoven fabrics to maintain personal hygiene, globally rising demand for masks owing to increasing impact of COVID-19 and growing product demand from medical & healthcare industry are some of the major factors fueling the growth of the market during the forecast period.
