Global fluff pulp market: Increasing adoption of air-laid papers
Fluff pulp is commonly used as a raw material in the production of air-laid papers owing to its soft texture, and the consumption of air-laid papers has been increasing due to the growing awareness of sanitation. The continual developments in the air-laid paper industry have also enabled people to live a more hygienic and sterile life. The critical applications of air-laid paper mainly include household hygiene products such as feminine hygiene, industrial wipes, tabletop napkins, wet wipes, table clothes, towels, and facial papers. These applications are likely to witness growth during the forecast period due to the rise in the disposable income, the standard of living of consumers and the increased demand from developing markets such as Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe (including Russia), and Africa. Therefore, the increased consumption of air-laid paper is likely to fuel the demand for fluff pulp during the forecast period.

"Developments in chemical pulp manufacturing technologies are expected to contribute to the growth of the global fluff pulp market. One such technological advance is the use of enzymes in the production of fluff pulp. Chemical pulp such as fluff pulp is treated with enzymes, ozone, oxygen, and hydrogen peroxide before final bleaching to avoid the use of harmful and toxic chemicals such as elemental chlorine which will impact the environment negatively. Therefore, the use of enzymes in treating fluff pulp is expected to boost the sales of the overall global market during the forecast period," says an analyst at Technavio.
