Analyst Review

Nonwoven adhesives possess properties such as high elasticity, superior absorption, and cohesion strength, which make them ideal for industrial applications. Nonwoven adhesives sealing competes with ultrasonic sealing, though ultrasonic healing cannot be a substitute to nonwoven adhesives sealing as it is highly expensive, especially for application in disposable products such as diapers and pads. These adhesives, for feminine hygiene, accounted for the largest share, occupying more than half of the global market. Incontinence problems in the geriatric population have created a huge demand for adult diapers with thinner cores, better absorption, and more fit & comfortability. In developed nations, such as U.S., Germany, and other North American & European countries, the adoption of such products is high, whereas it will take few more years in developing nations such as Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.

Styrenic block copolymers (SBC), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polyolefin (PO), polyester, polyamide, and polyurethane are some of the base polymers employed to manufacture of nonwoven adhesives. The demand for raw materials for production of nonwoven adhesives has increased considerably over the years, whereas the number of raw material suppliers are limited. Although the basic composition remains similar, the raw materials used to produce these adhesives vary according to the end applications. Though majority of raw materials used are derived from crude oil, the falling oil prices have no effect on the adhesive prices, as there is less correlation between the declining crude oil prices and adhesive raw materials. 

Increase in health awareness in emerging economies such China and India has fueled the demand for sanitary protection products in Asia-Pacific. China has the maximum production capacity for ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers, which is used as a base polymer in production of nonwoven adhesives. Asia-Pacific market is expected to register substantial growth in future due to growth in usage of nonwoven adhesives in medical products such as wound dressings and elastic bandages. New technologies are being developed by key leading players in the region to produce biodegradable diapers offering enhanced properties.
