Thriving market in Southeast Asia driven by healthcare and automotive

  • The global nonwoven fabrics market size is projected to reach US$68.1 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 20301.
  • By 2030, the region will also be home to 60% of the world’s population aged 65 years or older. The total healthcare expenditure in Asia is estimated to exceed US$4 trillion by 20242.
  • EV market in Southeast Asia is expected to grow rapidly, with an annual growth rate (CAGR 2023-2028) of 5.5%, resulting in a market volume of US$1,871.0m (US$1,871 million?) by 20283. The unit sales of EV market in Thailand are expected to reach 27,000 vehicles in 20284.
  • The textile industry in China is booming with increasing investments and government support. Textile production reached 3.18 billion meters of clothing fabric in October 20225.
