Global Medical Nonwoven Disposables Market To Reach US$20.9 Billion By 2017, According To New Report By Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — March 20, 2012 — Nonwoven disposables are rapidly making inroads into the
medical sector, principally driven by growing consumer awareness against spread of infectious
diseases. Diseases such as hepatitis and AIDS continue to further fuel demand from hospitals for
clean, sanitary and disposable products for safeguarding patients and doctors from such infectious
diseases. The stringent standards being imposed by various regulatory agencies globally are also
impacting the use of nonwovens positively. Though the healthcare sector is increasingly moving
towards non-invasive surgeries, overall impact on the nonwoven disposables market remains
miniscule. With hospitals looking at disposables as necessity, rather than luxury, nonwovens
industry is witnessing developments in new manufacturing, compound and finishing processes. Further
gains are predicted for the nonwovens market, as more number of users switch to disposables each
day coupled with newer methods of treatment and care. Currently, the availability of broad range of
technologies and fibers allows nonwovens to be produced according to individual needs of vivid
applications. In future, newer developments and improvements in form of hi-tech materials can add
to the progress of nonwovens. Airlaid nonwovens are likely to boost demand in future owing to their
economic cost in comparison to other products.

As stated by the new market research report on Medical Nonwoven Disposables, the US
represents the leading regional market in terms of consumption. With volume of sophisticated
hi-tech surgical intervention growing rapidly, Europe is likely to experience high growth in
medical nonwovens sector in the coming years. Growth in developed markets is expected to be
sustained by growing proportion of aging population and product innovations. Asia-Pacific
represents the fastest growing market for nonwoven disposables. The market for medical nonwovens
disposables in China is likely to be upbeat in coming years, as the country moves towards
overhauling its healthcare system, buoyed by its expanding economy. Segment-wise, Incontinence
Products represents the largest product segment. In light of the growing aspiration of incontinence
sufferers to lead an active life, the market is witnessing a demand for superior incontinence
products that address three critical needs – simplicity in usage, comfort, and security. Surgical
