The association will seek to work with other global nonwovens associations, companies, suppliers and distributors that produce equipment, and products, covering the full supply chain for nonwovens from raw material to finished product, to distribution.

Thailand – a nonwovens hub for expanding into the ASEAN markets

With strong endorsements from key Thai nonwovens entities, Thailand strategically positioned as a nonwovens hub, offers valuable opportunities for industry players in the ASEAN market.

Thailand’s excellent connectivity, world-class infrastructure, and Free Trade Agreements facilitate seamless logistics and trade. The region has over 640 million consumers, coupled with Thailand’s strong domestic market, driven by being Southeast Asia’s largest automotive producer, and its reputation as a global health security index ranking of 5th and Asia’s top destination for medical care and retirement, create significant demand for nonwovens.

Additionally, Thailand’s proximity to Malaysia, Vietnam, and Indonesia, with Malaysia manufacturing approximately one-third of the world’s semiconductors, Vietnam serving as the largest export market for nonwoven products from China in Southeast Asia valued at US$400 million, and Indonesia dominating the disposable hygiene products market with a value of US$6.5 billion in 2022 and a CAGR of 12.8%, enhances the expansion of the ASEAN nonwovens market.

By connecting the nonwovens market within ASEAN, Asia-Pacific, and beyond, Thailand offers abundant business opportunities in the ASEAN nonwovens industry. Join ANTEX Asia 2024 to benefit from valuable business networking, knowledge exchanges, and the exploration of cutting-edge nonwoven materials and technology.
