Study Tracks Meltblown Nonwovens

Research and Markets has added a new report—Meltblown/Microfiber Electrostatically Charged Nonwovens and Nanofiber Filter Media-Worldwide—to its offering. The total capacity/production of meltblown microfiber worldwide, according to this report, amounts to approximately 345 million pounds or 157,000 tons. Filtration represents worldwide approximately 34% or 115 million pounds/53,000 tons of this market. The estimate of meltblown materials is difficult because of the discrepancies between capacity and production and the great difference of yield in the meltblown process.

With regard to raw materials, the study concluded that polypropylene polymer still represents at least 85-90% of the market. The remaining but growing portion is represented by PET, PE, PBT, PA, ECTFE (HALAR), PAL and others. In calculating meltblown products, notably SMS and SMMS materials, the study concludes that the meltblown portion represents about 10-15% of the total product by weight with the balance being mostly spunbonded nonwovens.

The total number of companies producing meltblown microfiber and nanofiber nonwovens has increased during the last few years to approximately 115-120. In the year 2000, Research and Markets was only able to identify 108 companies with address and additional details, not counting 30-40 smaller manufacturers in China.
