Owing to its superlative absorbing power, Superabsorbent Polymers (SAP’s) have been employed in numerous applications but the largest use of superabsorbent is found in personal hygiene disposable products such as such as baby diapers, adult protective underwear, and sanitary napkins. Apart from personal care products SAP is also used for blocking water penetration in underground power or communications cable, horticultural water retention agents, control of spill and waste aqueous fluid. Growing usage of super absorbent polymer for the manufacturing of feminine hygiene products and adult incontinence products is likely to drive the growth of the market. Rise in birth rate, especially in APAC & MEA and growing geriatric population will remain the key factors for generating the major demand of super absorbent polymer over the next few years.

As per Value Market Research, Super Absorbent Polymer Market is expected to be worth USD 12,009.2 MN by 2024 with a CAGR of 7.1%. By volume, the market was estimated at XX.X Kilo-Tons in 2017 and is expected to reach XX.X Kilo-Tons by 2024 with a CAGR of X.X%.
 
SODIUM POLYACRYLATE IS LIKELY TO GAIN THE TRACTION
By end of 2024, sodium polyacrylate is expected to capture 65% market share. Sodium polyacrylate is also known as water lock and has a broad range of application across consumer goods products. Mainly, the segment is growing on the ground of its excellent property to absorb as much as 100 to 1000 times its mass in water. Rising demand from various end-use industries such as healthcare, packaging, agriculture, and consumer electronic goods is the major factor driving the growth of this segment.
 
FEMININE HYGIENIC PRODUCTS EMERGED AS THE LARGEST APPLICATION AREA
Market share for general applications of super absorbent polymer is likely to reach 86% by 2024. Growing hygiene concern among women along with the rising demand for feminine hygiene products such as incontinence products, adult protective underwear, and sanitary napkin is likely to raise the demand for sodium polyacrylate. Also, increasing usage of SAP in agriculture as water retention agents and control of spill and waste liquid is again boosting the growth. Furthermore, the rise in natal population around the globe is likely to witness the highest growth in the years to come.
 
ASIA-PACIFIC EMERGED AS THE LARGEST MARKET IN GLOBAL SAP MARKET
Asia-Pacific is leading the market accounting nearly for 33% of the global market share owing to the presence of large adult population, coupled with the high growth rate of end-use industries in the region. Also, increasing hygiene awareness and growing disposable income are some of the key factors which have led to the increase in demand and are projected to impact the market positively. Asia Pacific is followed by North America. Growth in this region is strongly driven by the growing healthcare sector and rising hygiene concern among the consumers. Europe is also expected to witness a moderate growth owing to the rising government initiatives to boost industrial development and usage of SAP in the agriculture sector. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are projected to grow at a steady rate due to rising birth-rate and increasing adoption of adult diapers in the region.
 
MAJOR COMPETITOR IN THE MARKET
BASF SE, Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd., Evonik Industries AG, SDP Global Co. Ltd., LG Chem Ltd., Sumitomo Seika Chemicals Co. Ltd. , Formosa Plastics Co., Bayer AG, and Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation.

As per this study, the global Superabsorbent Polymers (SAP) market in terms of revenue was valued USD XX MN in 2021 and is anticipated to reach USD XX MN by 2027 with a CAGR of XX%. By volume, the market was estimated at XX KT in 2021 and is expected to reach XX KT by 2027 with a CAGR of XX%.
 
Superabsorbent polymer (SAP) substance is hydrophilic networks that can absorb and retain extremely large amounts of water or aqueous solutions relative to their own mass. Technically, SAPs are cross-linked polyelectrolytes which start to swell upon contact with water or aqueous solutions resulting in the formation of a hydrogel. SAP’s are white sugar-like hygroscopic materials, which are mostly used in disposable diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products.
 
Market Dynamics
 
The super absorbent polymer is widely used in the manufacturing of diapers for babies, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products. Additionally, the increasing birth rate along with the growing geriatric population fuels the demand for super absorbent polymer market. Moreover, the rising application of super absorbent polymer for water conservation tool in large-scale agriculture is projected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. On the other hand, the fluctuating price of raw material is likely to act as a restraint for the market. Also, issues associated with the disposal of the synthetic superabsorbent polymer is likely to hamper the market growth.
