The global super absorbent polymers market was valued at USD 8.4 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 14.9 billion in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period.

Super absorbent polymers (SAPs) are capable of absorbing an exceptionally big quantity of water and aqueous solution relative to their own mass. It is therefore widely used in private disposable hygiene products, including diapers, adult diapers and sanitary napkins.

Growing population, focusing on efficient irrigation management, increasing demand for fluff less personal hygiene products, and the implementation of eco-friendly products are main factors ascribed to the development of the super absorbent polymers industry. On the other hand, volatility in raw material prices coupled with matured diaper market in developing economies are creating major hindrance for its market growth.

The Sodium polyacrylate segment expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period

Based on type, the global super absorbent polymers market has been segmented into sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylate/polyacrylamide copolymer, and others. Sodium polyacrylate accounted for the largest share of the super absorbent polymer market, in 2018The growing demand for this commodity is primarily owing to its capacity to absorb as much water as 400–800 times its mass. It is therefore commonly accepted in the areas of personal hygiene and agricultural applications.

Based on application, the personal hygiene segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8.5% throughout the forecast period

Based on application, the market has been segmented into agriculture, personal hygiene, medical, industrial, and others. The personal hygiene segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Super absorbent polymer has a high demand for private disposable hygiene products, such as baby diapers, adult protective underwear and sanitary napkins. Increasing the birth rate and awareness of personal hygiene are leading to an increase in the global demand for baby diaper sanitary napkins. Moreover, the growing aging population and the increasing number of cases of adult incontinence are resulting in the consumption of adult diapers.
