The spunlace market continues to grow between 4-5 percent annually thanks to a combination of growth in the technology's core market - wipes - as well as diversification into new areas. While most spunlace manufacturers admit that the bulk of sales continue to be tied to the wipes market, which continues to experience growth and diversification, many say that eroding margins and other macroeconomic factors are influencing their move into new markets.

New generation of water-permeable surfacing materials to be developed
Extreme weather conditions will occur more often in the future because of climate change. In Northern Europe, this means an increasing trend of heavy rainfall, particularly during the autumn and winter months. Flooding causes problems in dense urban environments where the water often cannot penetrate into the ground and rainwater collection systems lack the capacity for large volumes of water. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is leading a project that is seeking to identify flood water management solutions suitable for northern conditions through development of surfacing materials, technical design, and other means.
