Sponge Cloth Market: Introduction
- The global sponge cloth market is anticipated to show significant growth, driven by growing preference for sponge cloth in sectors such as clothing, household cleaning, and packaging. Sponge cloth is made of a mixture of cellulose, cotton, and mirabilite (natural mineral salt). Natural mineral salt helps to increase absorbency level of the sponge. This makes the product highly absorbent and strong. Sponge cloth can absorb liquid 20 times its weight, but easily becomes dry, which minimizes bacteria and mildew growth. It is washable up to 300 times that can replace 15 rolls of paper towel.
- Increasing demand for cleaning products from residential as well as commercial sectors is boosting the sponge cloth market. Additionally, growth in application of sponge cloth also drives the market.
