COVID-19 impact on global super absorbent polymers market

The super absorbent polymers market has witnessed growth in the last two-three years. But the market is expected to witness decline during the COVID-19 pandemic owing to lockdown imposed by many countries coupled with low efficiency of production due to labor scarcity. However, the demand and supply of hygiene and medical products & solutions were boosted, with the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, globally. Super absorbent polymers are widely used in the manufacturing of diapers and wipes that have significant demand in hospitals during the pandemic. However, the growth of other industries excluding medical has impacted the demand and supply of super absorbent polymers market because of the global pandemic situation.

Super absorbent polymers Market Dynamics

Driver: Growth in global population

According to The World Bank Group, the global population of the age group 00–14 is projected to be 2.08 billion by 2050. In the super absorbent polymers market, the personal hygiene application segment accounts for the dominant share. In the personal hygiene application, super absorbent polymers are used in baby diapers, adult incontinence products, and sanitary napkins. Among these, the use of super absorbent polymers is the highest in the baby diapers segment.

Moreover, the rising geriatric population and increasing awareness about advantages and convenience of adult incontinence products are increasing the usage of super absorbent polymers. With cases of adult incontinence on the rise, governments of various countries are focusing on the manufacturing of incontinence products through collaborative efforts with manufacturers and medical professionals. Countries such as the US, the UK, Germany, and Australia have government initiatives that support the use of adult incontinence products

Restraint: Mature market for diapers in developed economies

The market for diapers is matured in developed economies due to the high levels of product penetration. The demand growth of diapers in countries such as the US and Japan is projected to be relatively slow, owing to the decline in birth rates and low fertility rates. This has led to a decline in the sales of diapers in these countries. The decline in sales of diapers is hampering the growth of the super absorbent polymers market.

Opportunity: Development of bio-based super absorbent polymers

In the current market scenario, conventional super absorbent polymers used are non-biodegradable and account for a large share of landfills globally. Hence, investments for the development of super absorbent polymers based on renewable materials are expected to create new avenues for the global market. Super absorbent polymers based on renewable materials are also a suitable alternative to the petrochemical-based polymers, such as sodium polyacrylate and potassium polyacrylate, which are currently used in the absorbent core of disposable diapers, among other personal hygiene products. For instance, in 2017, Ecovia Renewables Inc. (US) has made research grants for the development of biopolymers materials for use in diapers.

Challenge:  Volatile price of raw materials

Acrylic acid is the main raw material used for the manufacturing of super absorbent polymers. The prices of acrylic acid have been volatile owing to fluctuations in the crude oil prices as well as the tight supply in the Asian market. Crude oil prices are recovering slowly, which will impact the prices of acrylic acid. China is the world’s largest manufacturer of acrylic acid. Environmental regulations in China have resulted in acrylic acid manufacturing plants to operate at lower rates, thereby narrowing the supply-demand gap. This has impacted the prices of super absorbent polymers as well. Manufacturers such as Nippon Shokubai and Evonik have announced price increases for their super absorbent polymers in recent years. However, the impact is expected to be overcome as new capacity additions are added, which would stabilize the prices in the coming years.

In terms of volume, the sodium polyacrylate segment is projected to account for the largest share of the super absorbent polymers market, by type, during the forecast period.

Super absorbent polymers are non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-corrosive. The major types of super absorbent polymers available in the market are sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylate/polyacrylamide copolymer, and others, including potassium polyacrylate, aluminum sulfate, octadecahydrate, and various inorganic clays. These polymers are used in applications such as personal hygiene, medical, agriculture, and industrial.

Sodium polyacrylate is the largest type of super absorbent polymers market which accounted for a share of 91.4% in 2020, in terms of volume. The segment is mainly driven by the increased use of sodium polyacrylate in personal hygiene applications, owing to its high liquid absorbtion capacity.

Personal hygiene segment is projected to be the largest end-use industry.

The personal hygiene segment is projected to be the largest end-use industry segment of the super absorbent polymers market during the forecast period. Super absorbent polymers are primarily used as absorbents for diapers, adult incontinence products, feminine hygiene products, and similar applications such as personal disposable hygiene products. The most important property of these products is their capacity to absorb liquid, urine, or blood. The absorption capacity depends on the absorbent pad that is consist of polymer and fibrous material. Polymer used in the absorbent pad is made from fine particles of various acrylic acid derivatives. These particles act as tiny sponges and can retain a large quantity of water. Diapers is the largest end-use application of super absorbent polymers worldwide due to the growing global population of age group 0 to 14. Growing female population and increased awareness of personal hygiene are resulting in the high demand for sanitary napkins. Besides baby diapers and sanitary napkins, demand for adult diapers is also increasing because of the growing geriatric population.

The North America region leads the super absorbent polymers market in terms of volume.

APAC is the largest and fastest-growing region for super absorbent polymers market. The growth in demand for super absorbent polymers in the region can be largely attributed to factors such as high population, increasing middle-class income, and cheap labour and raw materials cost.  Moreover, the rising number of end-use industries in the region is also leading to innovations and developments in the field of super absorbent polymers, thereby fueling the growth of the APAC super absorbent polymers market.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the current size of the super absorbent polymers market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market. 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 complete market size. After that, the market breakdown and data triangulation methods were used to estimate the size of the segments and subsegments of the overall market.

Secondary Research

This research report involves extensive secondary sources, directories, and databases, such as Bloomberg, BusinessWeek, Factiva, ICIS, and OneSource, to identify and collect information useful for the technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the super absorbent polymers market. The secondary sources included annual reports, press releases & investor presentations of companies, white papers, certified publications, and articles from recognized authors, authenticated directories, and databases.

Primary Research

The super absorbent polymers market comprises several stakeholders, such as raw material suppliers, processors, end-product manufacturers, buyers, and regulatory organizations. The demand side of this market is characterized by developing the end-use industry, such as residential, commercial, and industrial. The supply side included industry experts, such as CEOs, vice presidents, marketing directors, technology and innovation directors, and related key executives from various companies and organizations operating in the market. Various primary sources from both the supply and demand sides of the market were interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information.
