Japanese Spunbonded Production Increases...

The Committee of Filament Non-wovens, a division of the Japan Chemical Fibers Association, recently reported that spunbonded nonwovens produced by its seven member companies in 1990 increased 8.9% from the previous year. Total production increased to 34,621 tons and is divided by material: 19,498 tons of polyester (up 7.5%), 10,865 tons of polypropylene (up 12.5%) and 4258 tons of nylon (up 6.4%). Actual total production is probably considerably more, however, since these figures do not include some specified kinds of products and products from non-member companies.
