Market study shows 19% YOY jump in medical nonwovens since 2019; elevated demand seen through 2025




LEATHERHEAD, UK and AKRON, OH, October 14, 2020-

Global demand for nonwovens in medical applications will reach $2.49 billion in 2020, as healthcare providers battle to control and defeat the Covid-19 pandemic.

Exclusive new data from Smithers shows this is a 19.2% rise compared to 2019. The 2020 peak in demand will moderate over subsequent years as, and when, coronavirus infections are brought under control; but medical nonwoven will continue to be a vital tool in hospitals and see elevated demand through to 2025.
