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.
