Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) Market 2022: Global Trends, Business Overview, Challenges, Opportunities Analysis and Forecast to 2025

A Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) market is material which can absorb up to 300 times its weight in aqueous fluids. After absorption, the material does not release it. This property makes SAPs an ideal choice for use in a range of personal hygiene products designed to contain fluids including baby diapers, feminine hygiene, and adult incontinence products. Super absorbent polymer is also known as a superabsorbent, absorbent polymer, absorbent gel, water gel, or hydrogel.

Driven by a consistent demand across the personal care sector and a prominence in agriculture applications, global Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) market size is anticipated to surpass an annual valuation of US$9.5 billion by 2025.

Consistent demand for baby diapers

With a considerable growth in the world population, the demand for baby diapers, one of the most essential consumer goods, has also increased significantly. A vast majority of consumers today are adopting high-quality diapers with superior absorption to ensure comfort and hygiene for their little ones.

Water gels have a proven history of safe use and their benefits are widely recognized by experts in general medicine, pediatrics, nursing, and toxicology. Their use in personal hygiene products offers a range of health, hygiene, and lifestyle benefits. Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) market -based products help keep the skin dry, prevent the spread of infections, and protect against skin irritation.

Even during nationwide lockdowns due to the global coronavirus outbreak, essential items have witnessed consistent demand. As shops and retail stores continue to remain closed in some regions, consumers are relying heavily on online shopping and ecommerce for the delivery of essential goods, including baby diapers.

According to National Diaper Network, a non-profit organization based in America, infants require nearly 12 diapers a day on an average, while toddlers require up to 8 diapers. In addition to growing focus towards personal hygiene, an increased participation of women in the workforce will undeniably boost the demand for baby diapers in the upcoming years.

Growing utilization in agriculture

Considering the current rate of population growth, the global food demand is expected to rise substantially over the next few decades. The UN FAO predicts that feeding a global population of more than 9 billion by 2050 would require increasing food production by up to 70 percent.

The three most prevalent soil conditions that restrict plant growth and crop yield are high evapotranspiration rate, low water retention capacity, and leaching of soil moisture. In addition to these, factors such as improper irrigation practices overuse of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, degradation and salination, and unforeseen drought conditions often render permanent damage to the soil.

The use of hydrogel in agricultural applications helps preserve water, resist drought stress, and gradually improve soil quality. Its exceptional absorption capacity in saline and hard water conditions make it ideal for use in agriculture. From an environmental perspective, absorbent polymers can be biodegradable and non-polluting. They help minimize water consumption and irrigation frequency, forming an efficient cyclic process that delivers water directly to the roots and prevent soil compaction.

Besides agriculture, superabsorbent materials find extensive application in forestry, municipal gardening, industrial planting, water conservation, and drought management, offering promising opportunities to SAP manufacturers in the future.

Some key factors impacting SAP industry forecast

The uncertainty of raw material pricing trends as well as unavailability or shortage of raw materials in several regions due to the COVID-19 pandemic are proving out to be major factors affecting Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) market trends. However, a strong demand for personal care and hygiene products and growing usage of the materials in agriculture over the next few years will augment Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP)s industry share.
