Super Absorbent Polymer Market Size:

The Super Absorbent Polymer Market is valued at US$ 8,006.8 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow up to US$ 11,319.3 Million by 2027 at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period.

Super absorbent polymers are materials that can absorb aqueous liquids. Liquids cannot be released once it is absorbed. These are the ideal choice for products developed for containing liquids like baby diapers, adult incontinence products, feminine hygiene pads, and others. The majority of SAP products are produced from sodium polyacrylate and which is available in granular form or fibers.

The demand for such SAP products is growing on account of growth in the geriatric population and rising demand for baby diapers due to its excellent liquid absorption and retention capacity. The growing e-commerce market has also contributed favorably to the regional market growth for personal care products. However, the growth of this being hindered by issues such as volatility in the prices of raw materials and the maturing market for diapers in developed economies. However, the development of bio-based SAP and the increase in penetration of personal hygiene products in emerging economies are is providing new growth opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.

This report segments and analyses the market in terms of type, application, production method, and region. Depending on the type, the market is further categorized into synthetic and natural. The various applications analyzed in the market include personal care, healthcare, agriculture &horticulture, and other.
