Apr 2022. Polyolefin fibers, including spunbond nonwoven, currently represent about 5.5% of all synthetic fibers consumed worldwide. Mainland China is the largest supplier, followed by Europe and the Americas. The vast majority of polyolefin fibers are used in consumer products. The largest end-use market is represented by nonwoven fabrics (either staple-laid or spunbond), which, depending on their manufacture and characteristics, are used in many different applications. Carpets had historically been the major end-use market for polyolefin fibers, but the market has gradually lost importance because of changing consumer preferences for floor covering. Global consumption of polyolefin fibers slowed in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Industrial nonwovens and the textile industry in Asia/India were hit hard; however, there were opportunities for nonwoven fabric and protective garments in the healthcare and medical sector. Demand from most of markets is already recovering but increasing raw material and energy costs are affecting the supply industry.
