The following 28-page special section is devoted entirely to the impact of China on the global nonwovens industry. Like the Chinese dragon, China’s nonwovens industry should be considered a symbol of auspicious power. The tremendous growth being forecast for Chinese disposable goods and other nonwovens-related products has created tremendous opportunities for Western suppliers looking for their next hot market. At the same time, the emergence of Chinese-based equipment suppliers, roll good producers and converters has expanded the size and scope of the nonwovens industry, creating new technologies and markets, which will only benefit nonwovens makers around the globe.
