EDANA report on Nonwoven statistics released

Sector growth rate of 3.3% recorded
EDANA's comprehensive report on Nonwoven statistics for 2016 was published earlier this week. Available exclusively to members, the 'EDANA Statistics Report on Nonwovens Production & Delivery in Europe, 2016'  provides detailed production statistics and market analysis.

Per the figures collected and compiled by EDANA, the overall production of nonwovens in Greater Europe grew by 3.3% in volume in 2016 to reach 2,395,098 tonnes despite an uncertain economic climate. While growth in output in the European Union outperformed Greater Europe overall, some countries demonstrated impressive development.

Jacques Prigneaux, EDANA’s Market Analysis and Economic Affairs Director said “Germany, Italy and Spain all witnessed growth, with Spain’s particularly impressive at 5%, while recent star performer Turkey remained stable, more than compensating for the minor decline recorded in some other European markets.”

Mr. Prigneaux added “The whole EDANA team would like to thank participating companies for their valued input to our annual survey, and for delivering their information on time. This data, combined with continuous monitoring of the industry, ensures EDANA statistics are a valuable planning and benchmarking tool for all our member companies.”

Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA said “For over 40 years, the annual EDANA statistics – the most comprehensive report of its kind –  have proved an invaluable source of business intelligence for our member companies, offering unparalleled insight into the industry thanks to exhaustive research and direct input from producers.”

The report is available exclusively to all EDANA members.
