est single sub-segment of the industrial wipes market. These
wipes compete with both cheaper paper wipes and re-usable
textiles (rags or scraps). Innovation in general purpose industrial wipes includes the newer wet industrial wipes, like
Georgia-Pacific’s Brawny Wet Shop Towels, which combine
task-specific liquids with one-hand accessible dispensers.
Kimberly-Clark’s Waterless Hand Cleaners and their Wet-task System wipers, which are supplied dry ut designed for
consumer supplied solutions to be added prior to use, are
also new products here.
The industrial wipes market segment will generate about
$3 billion in sales and consume about 302,000 tons of nonwovens in 2016. By 2021, this is set to increase to a little over
$4 billion in sales and 427,600 tons of consumed nonwovens.
Industrial wipes serve some of the markets, like automotive and construction, which have rebounded and are servicing pent up demand from the global recession. Additionally,
even in regions with slower than expected economic growth,
government stimuli typically target these industries.
