Airlaid products provide adequate absorbency, flexibility and comfort for products manufactured in the hygiene and personal care segment extending from female care products to home decoration and mattress covers. The demand for airlaid products will continue to grow in the coming years owing to their rapidly widening application in manufacturing products that absorb and retain fluids for long time. As compared with normal wetlaid papers and tissues, airlaid products are soft, bulkier and porous with better water absorption ability. For home care products, the multi-layered and tough airlaid products impart these properties in the end products required for dusting, wiping and scrubbing. The food packaging airlaid products offer efficient absorption structures that ensure increase in the shelf life of the various food products. Strength and durability are major properties of airlaid products required for applications under rugged conditions for industrial applications. The closer proximity to key suppliers and customers and highly efficient transportation linkage routes are equally important factors for the markets players looking to set up new plant. The market players are looking to gain competitive advantage through innovations in the manufacturing equipment and by continually developing co-operation with the customers. The ability to manufacture vast number of end products and employ new technologies such as coating materials is expected to create new product design opportunities in the coming years. New innovations in order to improve the functionality of the airlaid products, including absorption and retention capacity, has led to the development of lightweight combined airlaid products with different nonwovens incorporated with odour and colour control technology.
