l With sales of nonwoven production at the producer level in North America reaching $4.97 billion in 2005, and the industry forecast to continue to grow by more than 4% a year, the market is expected to exceed $6 billion by the end of the decade.
These are just a few of the finding of a new report from INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, entitled “Analysis: Nonwovens Industry in North America—2005-2010.” This is INDA’s seventh analysis report of the Nonwovens Industry in North America (U.S. and Canada).
The analysis also reports that North American roll goods producers shipped 28 billion square meters of nonwoven fabrics in 2005, equivalent to 1.25 million tons. In addition to providing materials for domestic consumption, American and Canadian nonwoven producers exported about 285,000 tons of nonwoven material, with a value of $1.3 billion.
“Analysis: Nonwovens Industry in North America: 2005-2010” is available to INDA members for $2,200. Non-member pricing is $3,000. To order, go to the INDA secure eBookstore or call Helena Lee at (919) 233-1210 ext. 120; E-mail: hlee@inda.org
