March 16, 2022 (press release) –

According to a recent Nonwovens Industry report, Southeast Asia has become one of the fastest growing regions in the world in terms of the disposable absorbent hygiene products industry. The growth is driven by favorable demographics, increasing spending power, health awareness, rising product availability and low market penetration, which make Southeast Asia an attractive market for both nonwovens producers and converters. Kimberly-Clark, Procter & Gamble, Unicharm and Kao are among the major hygiene manufacturers with converting capabilities in Southeast Asia.

The Integrated Report 2021 by Japanese hygiene manufacturer Unicharm shows that the high-growth markets of Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and other countries in Southeast Asia are all facing the issue of an aging population, which is set to spur demand for adult incontinence care products.

AHC has recently completed a new facility in India.
