According to OICA, the production of light commercial vehicles has increased by 10.2 % in 2018 in the APAC region.

- Growing Demand of Spunbonded Polyester Nonwoven for Various Applications

There is an increasing demand for spunbonded polyester nonwoven in the geotextile, medical, packaging, electronics, hygiene, and construction industries for greenhouse shading, artificial turf, pavement overlays, fuel cells, sterile packaging, swabs, cable wrap, roadway reinforcements, drainage, and erosion control applications. Spunbonded polyester nonwoven are extensively used to manufacture shopping bags, garbage bags, storage bag, products packaging bags as it is one of the best printing media. These bags are lightweight, sturdy, and cut down the number of plastic bags being used. In addition, polyester spunbonded nonwoven fabric is widely used as various kinds of packaging materials such as, desiccant packaging of silica-gel drier, carbon absorbents, and more owing to its good strength, anti-tear, anti-pull, and air permeability properties.

Challenges - Spunbonded Polyester Nonwoven Market

- High Cost of Raw Materials Because of Volatility in Crude Oil Prices

The raw materials often used for manufacturing spunbonded nonwoven fabrics such as polypropylene, polyester, and polyamides are derived from crude oil. So, the price fluctuation of crude oil hinders with the price of spunbonded polyester nonwoven materials. According to, BP Statistical Review of World Energy, In the recent year there is been an increase in the price volatility of crude oil, such as the crude oil price decreased from $98.95 in 2014 to $52.39 in 2015 and increased from $43.73 in 2016 to $71.31 in 2018. And because of this uncertainty in crude oil prices, the price of spunbonded polyester nonwoven fiber also increases. Thus, the volatility in crude oil prices is expected to be a significant challenge for the spunbonded polyester nonwoven market manufacturers during the forecast period.

- Covid-19 Impact on The Spunbonded Polyester Nonwoven Market

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has impacted the imports and exports of spunbonded polyester nonwoven as governments of the leading producing countries have imposed export restrictions which are significantly disrupting the supplies. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a huge impact on the automotive industry. The production of automobiles has been disruptively stopped, contributing to a major loss in the total automotive sectors. Thus, with the decrease in automotive production, the demand for spunbonded polyester nonwoven has significantly fallen in the automobile sector, which is having a major impact on the spunbonded polyester nonwoven materials market.
