ABSTRACT
The article discusses the continuous growth of the United States nonwoven exports. Annual trade statistics compiled by the U.S. government reveal that exports of all nonwoven roll goods from the country increased by more than 16 percent during 2004. It reached a record of more than 230 million kilograms abroad. However, imports to the U>S. from other countries also increase by 21.2 percent to more than 167 kilograms in 2004. The Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry has reported on the narrowing gap between exports and imports of nonwoven roll goods. It noted that the trend is directly related to a unilateral move taken by the U.S. government in 1996 when duties on nonwoven roll goods entering the country were eliminated.
