Cannes Nonwovens event on Oct 10-11
The global nonwovens market is projected to grow at 6.2 per cent annually over the next five years. The identification and commercialisation of new, disruptive technologies are critical to long-term growth.
Attendance at the 4th Conference on Nonwovens for High-Performance Applications (NHPA) on 10-11 October 2018 in Cannes, France, is a simple and cost-effective way of keeping abreast of technological developments.
The latest addition to the programme, entitled The most disruptive technologies in high-performance nonwoven applications: forecast to 2028, Smithers Pira (UK), will examine developments over this 10-year period, including disruptive process technologies, for example predictive analytical process control and single step resin to product manufacturing; disruptive raw material technologies like microfibre and nanofibre spinning; and disruptive product technologies such as smart fabrics and controlled release technologies.
Advances in various areas offer a promise of market growth in high-performance nonwoven sectors, several of which reflect the content of other presentations on the programme, delivering a cohesive structure throughout 21 presentations over two days.
