Superabsorbent Polymers Market: Leading Segments

Europe is governing the global superabsorbent polymers market with its domineering share that is 60% as of 2018. The rising aging population in this region is increasing the mandate for the consumption of adult care products. Additionally, growing awareness about hygiene products is escalating the demand for feminine hygiene products. Germany experienced 9% annual growth in acrylic polymers, in primary forms (excluding poly “methyl methacrylate”) import value during 2017-2018. These factors are influencing the growth of superabsorbent polymers market in this region.

Baby diapers application is growing at a faster rate, at a CAGR of 6% throughout the aforementioned forecast period. Sodium polyacrylate SAP is mostly preferred due to its high absorption control and accessibility in manufacturing hygiene products such as disposable diapers to reduce infection and unpleasant smell of chemicals.

Superabsorbent Polymers Market: Disruptive Trends

  • Softer and sticker gel formulation of SAP has given rise to several applications such as baby diapers, adult diapers, sanitary pads, pet pads, medical materials, soil water management, cable protection, food packaging, fire prevention and protection, flood relief, and thickening agent.
  • Emerging SAP use to protect the cables by blocking the water penetration in the underground communications cable.
  • Sodium polyacrylate SAP act as an effective agent in increasing the biomass productivity in grasslands, and also in enhancing the organic matter content and soil fertility in forestry.
  • SAP is establishing stronger footprints in the agriculture industry, as it absorbs the excess amount of water in the soil and protects crops during the rainy season. In addition to this, it improves the physical properties of soil associated with each crop variety.
  • It supports the root growth of plants, seed germination, and aids plants to bear prolonged moisture stress, reduce the labor cost as it holds water around 500% more than its weight and also increases the age of plants.
  • Novel ultra-thin high absorbent sanitary napkins are manufactured using superabsorbent fibers and viscosity fibers.
  • Innovation in SAPs production such as Bio SAPs set to propel the growth of the superabsorbent polymers market.
