This presentation will characterize the importance of several new nonwoven technologies with high potential for specialty components in premium hygiene products, such as spunlaced, carded air-though bonded and other competing materials for ADL and elastic components This presentation will also provide perspective on the potential impact of new spunmelt polypropylene technology on the market and the return on capital investment advantages of early adopters who purchase new generation lines soon after each generation is introduced. In addition, a point of view will be offered on where high capacity versions of spunmelt polypropylene technology may be installed and where regional opportunities may arise to install lower capacity, high technology lines.
