Africa Diaper Market Outlook

The Africa diaper market size was around USD 4.21 billion in 2023. The market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2024 and 2032.

 

Key Takeaways

  • Sub-Saharan Africa has a fertility rate of 4.45, and Niger, Chad, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo lead the region with fertility rates of over 6.0.
  • Africa is experiencing a steady decline in infant mortality rate (-2.6% from 2020), contributing to a greater demand for diapers.
  • Innovations such as maximum skin protection and anti-leakage features in diapers are increasingly being demanded after across Africa.

 

Baby wipes and diapers are two necessities for infant care that reduce the risk of bacterial illness and offer comfort. The lifestyle and the standard of living of people in the West African region are improving along with rising awareness of hygiene, which is supporting the Africa diaper market development.

 

Increasing urbanisation, an expanding older population suffering from urinary incontinence, and development of the healthcare sector are some of the major reasons driving the adult diaper segment growth in Africa. Adult diapers are commonly worn by individuals with typical health conditions such as incontinence, mobility issues, or dementia.

 

The diaper market is directly correlated with the population growth. Africa holds a significant share of the world's population with a year-over-year population growth of 2.49%.

Africa Diaper Market Trends

According to estimates of the United Nations in the annual ‘World Population Prospects’, released in July 2022, countries of sub-Saharan Africa - Nigeria, Congo, Ethiopia, and Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo – are expected to contribute to over half of the population boom by 2050. Further, based on estimates of the United States Census Bureau’s International Database, by 2050, the older African population (aged 60 years and older) is projected to total 235 million, surpassing that of Latin America and Northern America.

 

A growing elderly population Increases the risk of health ailments. For adults suffering from conditions such as incontinence, mobility impairment, severe diarrhoea or dementia, diapers are necessary. Adult diapers are made in such a way that they are convenient and comfortable to use.

 

Rising disposable income and expanding population

The growing population in Africa and the rising disposable income are boosting the consumption of diapers. The changing lifestyle of West African working women is resulting in increased demand for good quality baby diapers.

 

Rising health awareness

International companies in the region are introducing programmes to spread awareness regarding the benefits of using diapers and the number of times they should be changed. Additionally, they are introducing promotional offers with diaper packs to influence consumer decisions and increase their market share.

 

Demand for sustainable diapers

The rising concerns regarding sustainability are resulting in the launch of eco-friendly disposable diapers made from organic raw materials that are safe for the environment.

 

Favourable government initiatives

Kenya’s government considers diapers as “essential items” and has been encouraging manufacturing firms to set up shop in the country to supply the East African region. Diaper firms are allowed to import materials important for manufacturing, largely plastics, duty-free.
