Non-woven fabrics are innovative fabrics like engineered material produced directly from fiber, bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat, or solvent treatment. Such produced fabrics have an extensive variety of applications across various industries. The research report titled Latin America Non-Woven Fabric Market Outlook, 2026 by Bonafide Research categorizes the market to forecast the revenues and analyze the trends in each of the following segments: based on polymer type (Polypropylene, Polyethylene, PET, Wood Pulp, Rayon & Others), by layer type (Single Layer & Multi-Layer), by technology (Spun-Bond, Wet Laid, Dry Laid & Others), by application (Hygiene, Medical, Filtration, Automotive, Building & Construction & others), based on countries & major companies.

In 2015, the demand for non-woven fabric in Latin America accounted for merely a market of USD 1.93 Billion, which was the least in the world market. Despite the large population size, the sales of non-woven fabrics are restricted due to a relatively low level of economic development. The scarcity of capital has been hindering the industrialization efforts in the region. However, the market is expected to grow in the coming years, where the suppliers are expected to be benefitted, by making nonwoven goods like disposable diapers and wipes increasingly affordable. Through the forecasted period, the Latin America market is expected to grow USD 1.10 Billion and 0.31 Million Tonnes from 2020.

The nonwoven industry in the region has been accelerated by the growth in overall economic output, increase in disposable income, construction activity, and growth of the manufacturing sector. Polypropylene polymer type in the region rules the market with more than half of the market share.

However, increases in regional population, households, health expenditures, and consumer spending will moderate, and the number of births will decline modestly, limiting advances in associated nonwovens demand through the coming period. On the other hand, the single-layer dominated the market since 2015, whereas the multi-layer segment is expected to grow over a CAGR of 9%.

Spun bond technology led the market with a notable growth on account of characteristics offered such as random fibrous structure, low drape ability, and high liquid retention. Moreover, the rising consumption of spun-bond nonwoven in applications such as industrial insulation and metal core packaging owing to the high tear strength offered by the product is further expected to boost the market growth. Polypropylene is dominated the Latin America nonwoven fabrics market, with more than USD 1.4 Billion in value in 2020. Polyethylene is anticipated to witness a steady growth rate over the next forecast period owing to growing penetration in applications such as automotive, agriculture, and surgical and medical equipment. Polyethylene type polymer segment is expected to grow over a CAGR of 7% over the forecasted period.

Advances in personal incomes will support greater market penetration of disposable infant and toddler products, and feminine hygiene products throughout the region. Growth in the elderly population will also promote sales of adult incontinence products. As a result, the hygiene care segment is expected to lead the market in terms of application through the period. The favorable economy of the manufacturing and construction industry is also likely to influence the Latin American non-woven industry in the coming period. Through the forecasted period, the filtration market is expected to post above average annual growth of 8.79%. An aging population will further support nonwovens in medical/surgical products, as medical procedures generally increase in frequency as a person ages.

Brazil is by far the largest market for nonwovens in the region, accounting for 40% of total demand. Other significant national markets include Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and Venezuela. Nonwovens' demand in the region expanded tremendously. The major marketers are Berry Global Inc., Freudenberg Group, Ahlstrom- Munksjö, Kimberly-Clark, DuPont de Nemours, Fitesa, Glatfelter Corporation, Lydall, Toray Industries, Johns Manville, Suominen Corporation, TWE Group, Low & Bonar, Zhejiang Kingsafe, Avgol, etc.
