Africa diaper market Outlook

The Africa diaper market attained a value of USD 4.21 billion in 2022. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% in the forecast period of between 2023 and 2028, owing to the increase in purchasing power.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Diaper refers to a large, flexible piece of paper or cloth that is attached around the waist like underwear. It comprises of several layers of fabric, such as hemp, cotton, bamboo, plastic, and polyethylene that are piled on top of one another, with an inner layer of polypropylene. They absorb or contain waste, preventing soiling of outer garments or the environment, enabling wearers to urinate or defecate directly into the toilet. It is used in cases of incontinence, whether due to age or illness. 

 

  • The growth of the Africa diaper market is being driven by an increase in the number of working women and a rise in purchasing power. Due to their greater purchasing power, they are able to invest more money on high-end, premium baby products. Premium baby care items like diapers are therefore in high demand in Africa.
     
  • The prevalence of urinary incontinence has increased nationwide due to the growing geriatric population. With increased awareness regarding the availability of adult diapers, geriatric persons with incontinence issues are turning to diapers, in a key trend in the market.
     
  • Additionally, children's delayed toilet training and increased promotions of baby diapers are contributing to the market's expansion.
     
  • There is also a considerable rise in demand for biodegradable diapers composed of environmentally friendly materials. Due to this pattern and growing environmental concerns about the harmful effects of diaper disposal, leading diaper manufacturers have developed solutions using raw materials that disintegrate substantially faster than regular diapers.

Market Share by Product Type

Parents are strongly embracing the use of baby diapers due to the growing awareness of child hygiene. Baby wipes and diapers are two necessities for infant daily care that reduce the risk of bacterial illness and offer comfort. The demand for baby diapers is rising due to the rising awareness of diaper rashes, which are usually caused by wet or infrequently changed diapers. 

 

Further, the use of baby diapers is increasing as a result of shifting consumer preferences, thereby propelling the Africa diaper market growth. A growing number of diaper manufacturers have already started employing environmentally friendly products and switching to more sustainable production techniques. This will benefit the market, enabling it to keep up with shifting customer preferences.

 

The rising hygiene consciousness of consumers has increased the need for adult diapers. Adult diapers are worn by consumers with atypical health conditions like incontinence, mobility issues, or dementia and are primarily developed to support adult incontinence. Increasing urbanisation, an increase in the older population with urinary incontinence, and developments in healthcare sector are a some of the major reasons driving the adult diaper segment in Africa.

 

Market Share by Distribution Channels

Over the forecast period, diaper distribution through supermarket and hypermarket channels is anticipated to rise at the fastest rate. This is due to the widening network of supermarkets across the region and their popularity amongst consumers in Africa. In addition to offering a large selection of diapers under one roof, these stores also offer discounted prices, providing customers with more purchasing power. The Africa diaper market is thus growing as a result of these benefits provided by supermarkets and hypermarkets. 

 

Internet usage has increased rapidly in many parts of the world in the past few years. Customers are increasingly reliant on numerous online platforms to learn about items and to participate in different social activities. Due to this important feature, the largest infant diaper producers have turned to the internet to market and sell their products. Thus, online channel has been one of the influential factors driving the demand for Africa diaper market.
