In a report issued by Smithers in December 2021, some key supply chain changes were anticipated for the wipes market to 2026, including the continuing regional variances and strategic material stockpiling of nonwovens as well as other raw materials. 

The report mentioned that current difficulties in transportation need to be addressed through increased communication and planning together with improved AI systems and larger inventories. As far as raw materials are concerned, the industry is still facing some major supply chain challenges such as the absence of viscose production in North America and fluff pulp in Asia.
