Per the figures collected and compiled by EDANA, the overall production of nonwovens in Greater Europe grew by 3.3% in volume in 2016 to reach 2,395,098 tons despite an uncertain economic climate. While growth in output in the European Union outperformed Greater Europe overall, some countries demonstrated impressive development.
Jacques Prigneaux, EDANA’s market analysis and economic affairs director, says, “Germany, Italy and Spain all witnessed growth, with Spain’s particularly impressive at 5%, while recent star performer Turkey remained stable, more than compensating for the minor decline recorded in some other European markets.”
Prigneaux adds, “The whole EDANA team would like to thank participating companies for their valued input to our annual survey, and for delivering their information on time. This data, combined with continuous monitoring of the industry, ensures EDANA statistics are a valuable planning and benchmarking tool for all our member companies.”
Pierre Wiertz, general manager of EDANA, says, “For over 40 years, the annual EDANA statistics – the most comprehensive report of its kind – have proved an invaluable source of business intelligence for our member companies, offering unparalleled insight into the industry thanks to exhaustive research and direct input from producers.”
The report is available exclusively to all EDANA members. For further information please contact Jacques Prigneaux at email@example.com
