INDA Annual Report Analyzes Industry-wide Events That Impact Nonwovens Industry
INDA Impact 2014 Quantifies Insights that Could Affect the Wipes, Hygiene, Disposable Nonwoven and Geosynthetics Industries
Cary, NC – June 16, 2014 – INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, announces the launch of INDA Impact 2014. The inaugural report provides comprehensive business intelligence by gathering and analyzing timely, reliable and insightful market information. The INDA Impact 2014 report reveals the implications this information could have on the nonwovens industry.
Each year, INDA Impact will give insight into industry-wide events or “game changers” for nonwoven professionals to take advantage of market opportunities and minimize disruptors or threats to their business sectors. Each event is evaluated in the context of current nonwovens consumption to generate a new nonwovens consumption forecast. INDA’s first report focuses on four events including:
• The Environmental Protection Agency’s “Wiper Rule” and its impact on the industrial and institutional wipes market by evaluating the rule and end-use channels to determine the opportunity for nonwoven wipes.
• The upcoming Boomer Echo and its impact on the absorbent hygiene market
based on the United States’ historical and forecasted birth data, diaper usage and nonwoven consumption in context with Millennial’ s attitudes and female population by age.
• The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) and its impact on the disposable nonwovens markets as a result of linking healthcare payments to quality with increased reporting transparency.
• Potential Coal Ash Storage and Hydraulic Fracturing Regulation and its impact on the geosynthetics market nonwovens usage and opportunities based on the changes in potential regulation and increased scrutiny by environmental groups and the general public.
“One of INDA’s goals is to provide thought leadership, and pertinent data and information to help our members and the industry at large to succeed. With INDA Impact 2014, organizations will discover the drivers of change, trends and forecasts that could transform the nonwovens industry,” said Dave Rousse, President, INDA.
“Looking at these events individually, they may appear to be insignificant for the nonwovens industry. Yet, when you look at all four events as a whole, the potential increase in tonnage could be in the six-figure range for the nonwovens industry over the next three years. This report quantifies each event through a conventional thinking statement followed by an assessment and rounds out the section with probable results,” said Brad Kalil, Director of Market Research and Statistics, INDA.
The 99-page report includes executive summaries, introductions, backgrounds, objectives, current assessments, forecasted results and discussions by individual events and contains 37 figures and 11 tables. For full order information, visit: bit.ly/indaimpact2014
