Rising Demand for Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) for Various Applications Driving the Market

The major supply markets include the Asia Pacific, North America, and Latin America. The Asia Pacific accounts for about 64% of the market share. The Asia Pacific is a significant supply as well as consumer super absorbent polymer (SAP) market. The region has a large consumer base for super absorbent polymer. The region is a major exporter of the product with China, the Republic of Korea, and Japan being the significant producers in the Asia Pacific. The demand for the product is majorly driven by the increasing demand for baby diapers, especially in China and India. China is the largest consumer market within the region, accounting for a significant proportion of the total sales. The demand for adult incontinence is majorly concentrated in Japan due to lower birth rates and rising older population.

North America is another significant market for super absorbent polymer as the United States is one of the largest producers and consumers of the product in the region. The United States and China together account for nearly 45% of the global sales of the product. The United States alone accounts for almost 90% of consumption in North America due to the increased penetration of diapers in the market, followed by Canada. In Latin America, the demand for sanitary pads and other adult incontinence is likely to witness a healthy growth demand due to the growing population of working women and the ageing population. The significant regional super absorbent polymer (SAP) markets in Latin America include Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil, owing to the growing demand for baby diapers.

The producers of super absorbent polymer are planning to expand their plants in order to meet the growing demand in the market. The companies are more likely to expand their supply in the incontinence segment.

 

Rising Use of Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) in Cement-Based Building Materials Aiding the Market

The growing use of super absorbent polymers (SAPs) in cement-based building materials owing to their favourable properties is fuelling the market. With the increasing interest in the enhanced growth of plant species on green wall facades and reduction of fire spiralling, the conjunction of super absorbent polymer in cement-based materials is likely to grow. Moreover, the surging investments to boost the production of super absorbent polymers (SAPs) by the leading companies to meet their growing demand is expected to aid the market. The increasing research and development (R&D) activities to explore the use of the material for hygiene and agriculture applications are anticipated to further bolster the growth of the super absorbent polymer (SAP) market in the forecast period.

 

Market Segmentation

Super absorbent polymer (SAP) refers to a substance that can withstand up to 300 times its weight in liquids. Most of them are produced using sodium polyacrylate and are available as fibres or in granular form. The granular substance is a polymer comprising of millions of equivalent units of sodium acrylate shaped into a fence-like structure of chains. Then, these are connected to turn the content into a three-dimensional network. Lengthy polymer chains are finally coiled in their dry state. When the water is consumed, it uncoils, and the network grows. The fluid is then deposited in the spaces of the molecular network, and the substance forms a gel that seals the liquid inside.

Rising Demand for Disposable Baby Diapers to Fuel the Market for Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP)

The global super absorbent polymer (SAP) market is majorly being driven by the rapidly growing demand for disposable baby diapers, which account for about three-fourth of the global demand by applications. The demand for baby diapers is growing at a fast pace, especially in the Asia Pacific region. The demand for baby diapers is expected to grow by almost 20% in the coming years due to favourable policies. The relaxation of the one-child policy by the government in China has increased the number of births in the country, resulting in an increased demand for diapers. India, another major country in the region, has a high demand for baby diapers due to increased birth rates. The demand for diapers in the region is also growing due to the transition from cloth nappies to diapers owing to the growing hygiene consciousness.

The growing awareness about personal hygiene in emerging nations like India, China, and Brazil is driving the demand for personal hygiene products in the region. The increasing disposable income of consumers in these regions is another factor providing an impetus to the super absorbent polymer (SAP) market, especially in China and India. Other driving factors for the market include the increased application of the product in water treatment, medical industry, and agriculture.
