The demand for European and American customers has surged 10 times compared to ordinary times, with data showing that a variety of industries catering non-woven fabrics will expand.

Recently, the price for medical masks doubles with demand still surging while supply is running short.

One-time non-woven masks usually cost about RMB 0.10-RMB 0.20, but the spreading of "swine flu" has pushed up sales, with prices reaching RMB 1 per piece.
