Super absorbent polymers are witnessing tremendous growth in the agriculture industry. The application of super absorbent polymer is one of the most popular water conservation approaches in agriculture. It is largely used across the world for fulfilling the increasing demand for food to a growing population. Super absorbent polymers are used as a mini reservoir of water and nutrients in the soil for on-demand supply to plants to produce grain and increase biomass under limited nutrient and irrigation conditions. Therefore, increasing focus on effective management of irrigation water is one of the key factors propelling the super absorbent polymers market growth. 

On the other hand, the volatility of raw material prices coupled with non-biodegradability of the synthetic super absorbent polymer are the key factors hampering the growth of global super absorbent polymer market. However, the development of bio-based super absorbent polymer for personal care products and government initiative to promote hygiene & cleanliness are expected to create growth opportunities for various players in the super absorbent polymers market.
