The super absorbent polymer is a cross-linked polymer that is insoluble in water. They can absorb liquids and keep them trapped or store, even under extreme pressure. The super absorbent polymer is a sponge as a sponge holds liquid and releases it when squeezed and super absorbent polymer turns liquid into gel and holds it.

The growing infant population is one of the key factors augmenting market demand for super absorbent polymers at present. Some of the countries where diaper market is anticipated to increase at a considerable rate are India, Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey, Brazil, and others. Moreover, high number of aged populations in countries such as Japan, Italy, Finland, Greece, and others drives the penetration of adult diapers in these countries, which further boost the market growth. However, matured markets for diapers are expected to hinder market growth.

The market segments are identified and analyzed keeping in mind the Super Absorbent Polymer Market ecosystem as a whole

Synthetic superabsorbent polymers are petrochemical-based polymers, which are usually produced from acrylic monomers such as acrylic acids, its salts, and acrylamide. The most common example of these includes sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymer, ethylene maleic anhydride copolymer, and others. Synthetic superabsorbent polymers are usually safe and non-toxic, but with a drawback of being non-biodegradable.

Polyacrylate is the main raw material utilized in the SAP industry. Superabsorbent polyacrylates are produced by polymerization of acrylic acid with a cross-linker. Acrylic acid is prepared from propane, which is a by-product of ethylene and petrol (gasoline) production. Hence, polyacrylate is non-renewable that is dependent on the petroleum sector

From a geographic segmentation perspective, the report focuses on the regions that have a material and significant effect on the overall market value. The broad level coverage of the report includes the regions of North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, LatAm, United States.

North America is one of the significant players and has the highest share for wound dressings, and this trend is anticipated to continue during the analysis period. This is attributed to rising in the geriatric population, growth in the incidence of chronic wounds, and the presence of key wound dressing manufacturers in North America.

Europe is the developed region with a maximum population awareness regarding hygiene. The demand for adult diaper is increasing in the region as around one-fifth of the total population is over 65 years. Germany, France, the UK, Spain, and Italy are the prominent countries in the diaper Market. Europe is one of the regions, which has imposed stringent regulations for the disposal of synthetic super absorbent polymer products. This factor surges the adoption of biodegradable super absorbent polymer products
