Producers of nonwoven roll goods ranking 31st-40th among the worlds leading companies have a combined turnover of US$726 mn, or 5% of the global total. Individually, their sales range from only US$60 mn to US$87 mn. But in spite of their small size, they play a major role in shaping the global business.

These producers include long established players as well as new ones. Andrew Industries, a new entrant to the top 40, traces its origins back to 1894. By contrast, Jacob Holm Industries was formed in 1995, and Toray Saehan as recently as 1999.

The nonwovens industry is becoming more international. Toray Saehan is a South Korean joint venture, Pegas Nonwovens is Czech, and Companhia Providncia is Brazilian. Internationalisation by existing players, meanwhile, is driving industry growth. Denmarks Jacob Holm plans to start up a new US$40 mn spunlaced line in the USA in June 2005. Germanys Textilgruppe Hof is stepping up its exports to meet rising demand in Eastern Europe. Unitika is expanding its polyester spunbond capacity at Thai Tusco in Thailand. And the UKs Andrew Industries is building a facility in China.

Other drivers of growth are new technologies and product markets. SP2C and Easy Care interlining products from Textilgruppe Hof have coatings to enhance performance in fashion fabrics. Precision Custom Coatings has diversified into OmniStretch hydroentangled liners for the automotive market. Kuraray has commercialised nonwovens made from Vectran, which uses liquid crystal polymer technology.

It provides market data and analysis of new and established markets for technical textiles, and is essential reading for senior executives in (or supplying) the man-made fibre, nonwoven and technical textile sectors as well as for those who are not involved in the industry on a day-to-day basis, but who need an authoritative source which helps them to quickly gain an understanding of the key issues facing the companies which are actively involved in this fast-growing sector.

profiles of the world's top 40 producers of nonwovens updated each year with details of developments from each of the leading producers, including acquisitions, investments and divestments, and analyses of trends which the "rising stars" are using to their advantage.
statistical reports including consumption data, by fibre and end-use applications. Regular updates are published for fibre consumption in Japan, the rest of Asia, the USA, and Western Europe.
