Lead Innovation with Sekisui Fuller in Asia Pacific

Tokyo Big Sight, East Hall 3
Booth No. 2144

Asia Nonwovens Exhibition and conference logo. Japan has been rightly considered as one of the most innovative markets for hygiene products globally. Japanese disposable hygiene articles are notoriously valued for premium quality, soft feel, and improved fit. With the growing market size of units sold across key hygiene segments in the past five years, Japan has been an attractive market for disposable article manufacturers and hygiene industry suppliers.

As Japan’s population ages ahead of the rest of the world, the adult care hygiene product segment, specifically incontinence management, is projected to have the fastest growth at 5% CAGR in volume between 2017 and 2022. With general societal affluence, government tax exemptions on incontinence products under specific circumstances, and increased manufacturer’s efforts to eradicate social stigma and improve product selection, Japanese consumers are looking for improved incontinence products that are suitable to their lifestyles and physical conditions.

As the long-term hygiene adhesive market leader in Japan, Sekisui Fuller is on the front end of innovation with leading-edge adhesive technologies and high-touch technical service that enable customers to create next generation hygiene articles.

Join us at ANEX 2018 to learn about how Sekisui Fuller addresses Japanese market trends and enhances hygiene article users’ experiences. Yu Someya - Sekisui Fuller R&D will speak at ANEX about “Innovative Hot Melt Stretch Engine Leads New Capability for Hygiene Industries.”

Yu Someya is an R&D chemist at Sekisui Fuller, focusing on hot melt technology. He holds a PhD from Tokyo University of Science in Japan, where he majored in chemistry.
