Dec. 24, 2019

In recent years, the growth rate of world demand for nonwovens has always been higher than the growth of the global economy. Global non-woven production is mainly concentrated in the United States, accounting for 41% of the world's total, 30% in Western Europe, 8% in Japan, 3.5% in China, and 17.5% in other regions. In the end application of non-woven fabrics, hygienic absorbent products (especially diapers) have the fastest growth. Medical textiles, automotive textiles, footwear and artificial leather markets have also witnessed rapid development. China's nonwovens industry started late, but has developed very rapidly. In the early 1980s, output was less than 10,000 tons. In the middle and late 1990s, China set off a climax in the development of non-woven products. In addition to domestic production lines, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Hunan and other provinces have also introduced production lines from abroad. The development speed of China's non-woven fabrics greatly exceeds the average development rate of the textile industry, and it grows at a high speed of 8-10% each year, and is the fastest growing industry in the textile industry.

There are three types of sterilization methods: pressure steam, ethylene oxide, and hydrogen peroxide. However, ordinary non-medical non-woven fabrics cannot be applied to various sterilization methods.
