(MENAFN- ChemAnalysts) According to ChemAnalyst report, “Global Superabsorbent Polymer Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Company Share, Foreign Trade, 2015-2030” The Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) market witnessed steady growth in the historical years and is estimated to reach a market volume of 5100 thousand tonnes with a CAGR of 5.06% until 2030.
Superabsorbent Polymers tend to have high water-absorption due to their cross-linking nature. Acrylic Acid find its application as a monomer for the polymerization of Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP). SAP has a wide range of applications, from hygiene materials, where it is mainly consumed in disposable diapers and sanitary products, to non-hygienic applications such as agriculture & horticulture. Moreover, the demand for superabsorbent polymers is employed for medical, personal care, and packaging applications. They are cheap in production and have a non-toxic nature. The application of hydrogel agriculture technology helps soils retain water and resist the effects of drought. Agricultural success is improving as a result of greater seed sprouting and good crop growth.
The use of superabsorbent polymers in the personal hygiene industry is the main market growth driver in this sector. SAPs are often used in feminine hygiene items including sanitary napkins, adult diaper products, and infant diapers to absorb urine and fluids. It reduces the risk of vaginal cancer which makes SAP a preferable alternative to cotton in sanitary napkins. Another significant portion of the market is its use in the medical field for surgical bands, dressings, and implants. Furthermore, it is projected that the use of SAP in the agriculture sector, such as drip irrigation, would further boost its demand during the projection period.
The global Superabsorbent Polymer market is segmented based on end-use, sales channel, and region. Based on the end-user industry, the global Superabsorbent Polymer market is segregated into Personal hygiene, Medical, Agriculture, and Others. Personal hygiene is the leading segment of the market. The most popular items that are driving demand of the superabsorbent polymers include feminine hygiene items, adult diaper products, and baby diapers.
Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of Superabsorbent Polymer. In Asia Pacific, increased demand for this acid due to the rising population coupled with growing demand for baby diapers due to greater birth rates, higher disposable incomes, and expanding public awareness of hygiene, is contributing to the expansion of Superabsorbent Polymer market in countries such as China and India. Based on production, Asia Pacific is again in lead, with China being the top producer on a global scale.
“Global Superabsorbent Polymer Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Company Share, Foreign Trade, 2015-2030”, The major players operating in the global Superabsorbent Polymer market are OCP Group, Mosaic Company, IFFCO, Nutrien, Ma’aden, J.R. Simplot Company, ICL-YTH Group, Wengfu Group Co., Ltd., ICL(Rotem), Indorama (Industries Chimiques du Senegal), PhosAgro, Foskor Group, Rotem Amfert Negev Ltd., Yara, Coromandal International limited, JIFCO, and Indo Maroc Phosphore SA (IMACID).
“Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) is a cross-linked polymer that is economical, easy to manufacture, and has a high-water retention rate. Due to this reason, it is utilized mainly for the manufacturing baby diapers and feminine hygiene articles like sanitary napkins. The personal hygiene industry is the primary consumer of SAP and is anticipated to further propel in the forecast period. Furthermore, its non-hygienic applications such as agriculture & horticulture is anticipated to further swell up the global Superabsorbent Polymer market in the forecast period by 2030.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm promoting ChemAnalyst.
