Nonwovens Industry: Industrial & Institutional Wipes Market Rebounds
Nonwovens Industry recently published an article entitled Industrial and Institutional Wipes Market Rebounds, which discusses how growth patterns normalize following sharp declines in some end-use markets in 2020. As businesses and facilities reopened in 2021, the market began to rebound, and today companies in the wipes industry are reporting similar growth patterns to the pre-pandemic days.
Excerpt from the article:
“Anticipating continued growth in the market is PDI, a major supplier of disinfectant wipes to the healthcare and foodservice sectors. “This idea of cleaning for health is elevated over the idea of cleaning for aesthetics,” says Ramzy Nasrallah, senior director, Downstream Marketing, PDI Healthcare. “Post-Covid, new cleaning and disinfection processes and protocols are being embraced, making wipes more available for everyday use, and as a result I&I sales increased tremendously.”
According to PDI, healthcare environments are increasingly demanding faster and easier access to cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in order to maintain infection prevention protocols. “Facilities have a number of disinfectants and formats to choose from, including sprays, aerosols, dilutable concentrates and wipes,” Nasrallah explains. “Wipes are emerging as the standard for decontaminating low-risk patient equipment and high-touch environmental surfaces within the healthcare space because of their ease of use and reduced exposure to cross-contamination.”
