Factors affecting the growth rate of non-woven fabrics

All the factors that affect the growth of artificial fibers have more or less impact on textiles with artificial fiber as raw materials, which have the greatest impact on non-woven fabrics. The population growth factor has less impact on non-woven fabrics than other textiles used for clothing. But if we consider the important application of non-woven fabrics in baby diapers, population growth is also an important factor. Natural fibers are partly replaced by textiles, but they have little effect on non-woven fabrics, because the production of non-woven fabrics is basically dependent on man-made fibers.

The commercial development of artificial fiber and the professional application of non-woven fabric: the trade of microfiber, composite fiber, biodegradable fiber and new type polyester fiber has been increased because of the establishment of international economic treaties. This has great influence on non-woven fabrics, but has little effect on clothing and knitted fabrics. Instead of textiles and other items, this includes the substitution of non-woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, plastic films, polyurea foam, wood pulp, leather and so on. This is determined by the cost and performance requirements of the product. The introduction of new more economical and more effective production processes: the application of various articles made of polymers, the competitive non-woven fabrics, and the introduction of special fiber and non-woven fabric additives.
