Despite the large size of its population, sales of nonwoven fabrics in South America are limited by the region's relatively low level of economic development, reflecting a scarcity of capital that has hindered industrialization efforts. Brazil is by far the largest market for nonwovens in the region, accounting for 41% of total demand. Other significant national markets include Argentina and Colombia. Suppliers benefited from economic activity and per capita incomes above the global average during this span, making nonwoven goods like disposable diapers and wipes increasingly affordable. Nonwoven fabric sales will be stimulated by accelerated growth in economic output, personal incomes, construction activity, and manufacturing output. However, growth in regional population, households, health expenditures, and consumer spending will moderate, and births will fall slightly, limiting advances in associated nonwovens demand through 2027. According to the research report "South America Nonwoven Fabric Market Research Report, 2027" published by Actual Market Research, it is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period with a CAGR of 6.86%. By volume, it is expected to reach nearly 1.30 million tonnes by the end of the forecast period in 2027. Growing demand for PP-based nonwoven fabrics, low labour wages, and sustainability are the major driving factors for the nonwoven fabric market. The easy availability of substitutes and high initial investments are the restraining factors. Volatile prices of raw materials needed to make nonwoven fabric also restrict market growth. However, the future prospects lie in a surge in demand for diapers, durable products, and an ageing population in the region. The growing demand for spun-bound fabrics and mounting furniture industry applications would be beneficial to market growth. In 2021, personal hygiene products were the largest market for nonwovens in South America with 44%. Approximately 70% of nonwovens in the personal hygiene market are used to make disposable infant diapers and training pants. Through 2027, sales of nonwovens for use in personal hygiene products are expected to achieve annual growth of 6.13%, with infant diapers and training pants posting above-average gains. 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, regional production of infant diapers, sanitary pads, and similar products will increase, primarily providing an outlet for spun-bond nonwovens. Declining birth rates and slowing growth in the 15-49 age group of women will restrain further advances. The filtration, medical/surgical, and construction markets are expected to post above-average annual gains through 2027. In all cases, nonwovens will benefit from increased market penetration, typically displacing woven textiles. Favourable manufacturing and construction activities will also provide opportunities for nonwovens used as filtration media, geotextiles, and roofing. An ageing population will further support nonwovens in medical and surgical products, as medical procedures generally increase in frequency as a person ages. The PP nonwoven fabric is witnessing steady growth due to increased demand for diapers. The rise of convenience stores and internet cafes is further driving the growth of the market. The Mexican market is growing owing to an increasing population along with urbanization. As a result, there is an increase in the demand for diapers in the country.Due to the economic crisis, Argentina faces a major problem of low disposable incomes, and thus lower-quality nappies have become a popular option in the country. Several multinational companies have been offering affordable packs via conventional channels to attract lower-income consumers. These investments are envisioned to enhance biodegradability and improve the safety aspect of the product. They also aim to improve the design of diapers and beltless technology. Moreover, huge investments are being made by the vendors to retain the position of their brands and to avoid any infringement of copyright through low-cost producers. These developments in the country are expected to create more opportunities for the diaper market. Because nonwoven fabric is an important component of the diaper manufacturing process, growth in this sector will inevitably lead to growth in the region's PP nonwoven market.
