Super Absorbent Polymers Market

Super Absorbent Polymers Market is set to surpass US$ 9 Bn in 2020
PMR forecasts sluggish growth for the global super absorbent polymer market during the next four
years. The global SAP market will witness passive expansion at a CAGR of 3.9% during the
forecast period 2016-2020.Super absorbent polymer is widely consumed for disposable diapers
manufacturing, coupled with adult incontinence products and feminine hygiene products. Growing
birth rate and rising elderly population remain key to the prospects of this market. Demand will also
remain steady in the medical and agriculture sector. Emerging applications in agriculture and largescale farming, in addition to aboriculture, are likely to present lucrative growth opportunities in
Moreover, manufacturers of absorbent pads, sand bags, and artificial snow will also support the
market growth through the next few years. Uplifting adoption of super absorbent polymer by
landscaping companies for spacious golf courses and garden grass will propel the demand for SAP,
eventually fueling the market for super absorbent polymer globally. Introduction of biodegradable
SAP is estimated to be a major factor promoting the usage of super absorbent polymer over the
forecast period. However, fluctuating pricing and availability of raw materials will remain a longterm challenge to the SAP market growth over the next few years. Frequently changing healthcare
regulations may also hamper the global super absorbent polymer market growth.

By application, the global market for super absorbent polymer is largely concentrated in three key
end-use industries viz. disposable diapers, adult incontinence products, and female hygiene
products. Disposable diapers segment will remain the largest consumer of super absorbent polymer
with a value of around US$ 5.81 Bn in 2016 and over 74% revenue share by 2020 end.
Based on product type, sodium polyacrylate co-polymers and poly acrylamide co-polymer segments
will account for major market value shares. Poly acrylamide co-polymers are however predicted to
gain higher traction over the forecast period, attributed to their higher water-retention capacity and
non-toxic properties. This segment will possibly grab over 11% revenue share of the overall market
by 2020.
Geographically, Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) is identified to remain the most lucrative region,
followed by Europe and North America. Demand for super absorbent polymers in North America
will be led by the U.S. The macroeconomic drivers, such as rising awareness about the usage of
SAP-based products for maintaining personal care and hygiene, and increased purchasing power of
consumers in developing countries, will strongly favor the consumption of super absorbent polymer
in APEJ. This region is likely to account for over 36% market share, whereas Europe will contribute
over 28% share to the market by 2020 end. Overall growth rate of all regional markets is expected
to be stable. The market in Asian countries will especially witness remarkable growth, as a number
of leading personal care product providers are expanding in Asia Pacific.
