With the stabilization of the domestic new crown epidemic, the mask industry chain that was once sought after by the market continues to cool. There have been reports that the price of Melt Blown Cloth has plummeted by more than 90%. However, even so, most listed companies engaged in the production of meltblown cloth may have already lost their pockets, and some companies' performance in the first quarter of this year has even exceeded that of last year.
Although the current market is getting colder, domestic Meltblown Cloth Manufacturers still have a profit, but for the future market, most companies say that it is impossible to predict, depending on the development of the epidemic.

Melt-blown fabric is a kind of non-woven fabric. Non-Woven Fabric is also called "non-woven fabric", which refers to the fabric formed without spinning and weaving fabric. The meltblown non-woven fabric industry originated in Europe and the United States in the 1950s and was introduced to my country for industrial production in the late 1970s. During the development process, non-woven fabrics evolved into spunbond, needle punched, spunlaced, chemical bonding, and thermal Various processes such as bonding, air-laid, wet, and melt-blown.
Because it is the core material of medical protective masks, meltblown cloth is well-known to the public, and it is even hard to find a cloth when the epidemic is serious. However, before the epidemic, meltblown fabrics were relatively niche in the non-woven fabric industry. The data shows that the output of spunbonded non-woven fabrics in 2019 was 3.0943 million tons, accounting for 49.80% of the total non-woven fabric output, and the meltblown non-woven fabric output accounted for only 1.07% of the total non-woven fabric output during the same period .
At present, the market for non-woven fabrics is not as hot as in previous months, but many types are still in short supply. The demand for non-woven fabrics such as spunlace and super fiber used in the production of fast-moving consumer goods is still increasing. As a result, foreign demand for non-woven fabrics has soared, and foreign sources are in short supply, and there are also many non-woven fabric purchase orders to China.
The entire market is expected to continue until the end of this year, but the market in 2021 and beyond cannot be rashly concluded. After all, in the absence of an epidemic, the non-woven fabric industry directly related to the epidemic only meets the normal consumption of the daily medical care industry. After this epidemic, consumers' consumption behaviors, habits and consciousness will change, and the non-woven fabrics of daily fast-moving varieties will have a continuing tendency.
In the short term, the epidemic will catalyze the demand for spunlace and meltblown non-woven fabrics. In the future, governments and hospitals will also increase reserves of protective equipment. Residents’ demand for disinfection wipes and other cleaning products is also expected to increase. Demand growth. In the future, the growth in demand for downstream medical, personal hygiene and medical products will drive the continuous growth of non-woven fabrics.
