Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) Market

Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) Market by Type (Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyacrylate/Polyacrylamide, Copolymers), Application (Personal Hygiene, Agriculture, Medical, Industrial, Packaging, Construction, Oil & Gas), Region - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: CH 2344 Jun, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

The super absorbent polymers market is projected to grow from USD 9.0 billion in 2019 to USD 12.9 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. The growing population, increasing demand for fluffless personal hygiene products, focus on effective irrigation management, and adoption of eco-friendly products act as drivers for the growth of the SAP market.

Super Absorbent Polymers Market

Sodium polyacrylate is estimated to be the largest type during the forecast period.

Sodium polyacrylate accounted for the largest share of the SAP market in 2018. It is often called the "super slurper" and is widely preferred for its ability to absorb as much as 400–800 times water than its mass. It is also the most commonly used type in personal hygiene products such as baby diapers, adult continence products, sanitary napkins, and agricultural applications.

Personal hygiene is projected to be the fastest-growing product type segment of the super absorbent polymers market during the forecast period.

Personal hygiene is the largest application of SAP. The largest use of SAP is found in personal disposable hygiene products, such as baby diapers, adult protective underwear, and sanitary napkins. Diaper manufacturing is the largest application of SAP worldwide. Due to the increase in birth rate, baby diapers are witnessing rapid growth. Growing population and increased awareness regarding personal hygiene are resulting in the rise in demand for sanitary napkins. Besides baby diapers and sanitary napkins, the demand for adult diapers is also increasing at a higher rate because of the increasing aging population and the growing number of cases of adult incontinence.

APAC is estimated to be the largest market during the forecast period

APAC is the largest super absorbent polymers market, and this trend is expected to continue until 2024. The region is also projected to grow the fastest during the forecast period. China accounted for the largest market in the region, followed by Japan, South Korea, and India in the year 2018. Much of the growth in demand for SAP in the region is attributed to the growing population and increasing awareness regarding personal hygiene in the region. Penetration of personal hygiene products such as baby diapers, adult incontinence products, and sanitary napkins is relatively low in this region. Thus, there is a huge potential for the growth of this market in APAC.

Super Absorbent Polymers Market

Market Dynamics

The growth in global population, increasing demand for fluffless diapers, focus on effective management of irrigation water, and adoption of eco-friendly products are fueling the growth of the super absorbent polymers market. However, the matured market for diapers in developed economies is hindering the prospects of market growth. Although the prices of raw materials are volatile and non-biodegradable super absorbent polymers are difficult to dispose of, the development of bio-based super absorbent polymers and high growth potential of super absorbent polymers-based personal hygiene products in developing economies are expected to provide growth opportunities for the market.

Super absorbent polymers (also known as super absorbents or SAP) are materials which can absorb several times its own weight in aqueous fluids. They are, therefore, an ideal material for use in applications which require liquid to be contained. The various applications include baby diapers/nappies, incontinence products, feminine hygiene pads and liners, agriculture, medical, and industrial.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the current market size for super absorbent polymers. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the production and consumption of super absorbent polymers. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the overall market size. Thereafter, market breakdown and data triangulation were used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources, such as Hoovers and Bloomberg BusinessWeek, were referred to, so as to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources included annual reports, press releases & investor presentations of companies; white papers; certified publications; articles by recognized authors; magazines; oil & gas journals; regulatory bodies; trade directories; and databases.

Primary Research

The super absorbent polymers market comprises several stakeholders, such as raw material suppliers, manufacturers, end-users, and regulatory organizations in the supply chain. The demand side of this market is characterized by the growth in the need for SAP in applications such as personal hygiene, agriculture, medical, and industrial. The supply side is characterized by advancements in technology for complex specifications. Various primary sources from both the supply and demand sides of the market were interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information.

Following is the breakdown of primary respondents

Market Size Estimation

Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the global super absorbent polymers market and to estimate the sizes of various other dependent submarkets. The research methodology used to estimate the market size includes the following:

  • The key players in the industry were identified through extensive secondary research.
  • The supply chain of the industry and market size, in terms of volume and value, were determined through primary and secondary research.
  • Percentage shares were determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.
  • All possible parameters that affect the markets covered in this research study were accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to obtain the final quantitative and qualitative data.
  • The research includes the study of reports, reviews, and newsletters of key industry players along with extensive interviews with key officials, such as directors and marketing executives.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the total market size through the estimation process explained above, the overall market was split into several segments and sub-segments. The data triangulation was used, wherever applicable, to complete the overall market size estimation process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides. In addition, the market size was validated by using both top-down and bottom-up approaches. Then, it was verified through primary interviews. Hence, for every data segment, there are three sources—top-down approach, bottom-up approach, and expert interviews. The data was assumed to be correct when the values arrived at from the three sources matched.
