Paper towels, also referred to as kitchen rolls, are the new alternatives of cloth towels that consumers are being attracted toward. As the name suggests, paper towels are made up of paper, more precisely from the cellulose fibers which are giant molecules that consist of many smaller molecules linked together. Paper towels are easier to use and carry as compared to normal cloth towel as they are available in much compact size and are lightweight. They are one time use and have higher absorption rate as compared to any other towel and sometimes considered more effective than a hand dryer as it can dry a surface in less than 20 seconds. It is used for the purpose of wiping hands, or any surface like windows, glass tables, and any food spills. The paper towel market is gaining huge popularity and demand by the consumers especially during COVID-19 period as there is a rise in the hygiene awareness among people who consider paper towels to be safer to use as they are dry and will not transmit any bacteria from one person to another.
