Wipes sector continues to seek growth, through product innovation and new nonwovens capacity
WILMOT, NH, January 13, 2022-
Even as demand for wipes has returned to earth after last year’s pandemic-inflated explosion in sales of cleaning wipers, industry participants continue to seek growth in the sector. At least three North American installations of nonwovens lines targeting wipes as well as hygiene markets have been reported, while other strategies include continued new product introductions as well as efforts to sell companies that have enjoyed high valuations.
Domtar’s EAM nonwovens unit is installing a new Dan-Web multibonded airlaid line with a rumored capacity of as much as 20,000 tonnes. Startup is expected this year, with construction currently well under way.
