The global adult diaper market reached a value of US$ 15.4 Billion in 2020. An adult diaper, also known as adult nappy, is a type of underwear worn by adults so as to urinate or defecate without using a toilet. It absorbs or contains the waste and prevents soiling of the outer clothing. The inner lining that touches the skin is generally made of polypropylene, whereas the outer lining is made of polyethylene. Some manufacturers enhance the quality of the inner lining with vitamin E, aloe vera and other skin-friendly compounds. These diapers can be indispensable for adults with conditions like mobility impairment, incontinence or severe diarrhea. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global adult diaper market to reach a value of US$ 24.20 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.80% during 2021-2026.
