According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025’, the global demand for super absorbent polymers (SAP) reached a volume of around 2.8 million metric tons in 2019. Further, the demand for the product is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period of 2020-2025 to reach a volume of 3.8 million metric tons by 2025.

The global super absorbent polymer (SAP) market is being driven by its growing demand to manufacture products such as baby diapers, feminine hygiene pads and liners, and incontinence products, particularly in emerging economies. The disposable baby diapers segment is the leading application segment of the product, accounting for nearly three-fourths of the global demand. Within the Asia Pacific, the rising awareness regarding personal hygiene has led to the increased adoption of diapers over cloth nappies, especially in regions like India and China. The demand for baby diapers in the Asia Pacific is expected to grow by almost 20% in the coming years due to rising urbanisation and increasing population in the region. Further, the product is finding applications in sectors like water treatment, medical industry, and agriculture, which are expected to grow more in the coming years, driving the market for super absorbent polymer (SAP) further.
