"Potentials of a profitable and growing industry: nonwoven materials"

EDANA is the voice of the nonwovens industry, representing over 290 member companies in 33 countries. Since 1972, EDANA is the leading authority in nonwovens technical, market, and statistical matters. EDANA’s publications are based on first-hand information from its members.

EDANA reports are a reference in the industry and have grown in breadth and scope over the last two decades to become global, through:

  • cooperation with sister associations, such as INDA in the USA and ANFA in Asia
  • expansion of its membership
  • knowledge building and gathering through conferences staged in all of Europe, Russia, Turkey, China, India, Middle East, and South America

Nonwovens, as an industry has typically performed better than any other process manufacturing industry. The industry year-on-year growth rate has consistently outstripped GDP over the past 15 years in both North America and Europe, providing investors with predictable, sustainable cash flows throughout all economic cycles.

The COVID-19 outbreak has shone a new light on the nonwovens industry and its importance in helping in the fight against the pandemic. Face masks, gowns, surgical drapes and other protective equipment materials are all made from nonwoven materials, an industry on which the global healthcare system is completely dependent.

Nonwovens are present in almost all aspects of life and beyond medical applications, can be found in hygiene, agricultural, automotive, filtration, construction, and many more sectors, making this industry immune to economic cycles.

Nonwovens growth is driven by:

  • consumers need for convenience
  • improved purchasing power in emerging economies
  • global demographic trends
  • the replacement of existing products with superior performance materials
  • continued innovation and new application areas

You can learn more about what this industry can mean to you and your business.
