India Adult Diaper Market to Reach US$ 201.7 Million by 2027, Bolstered by Growing Prevalence of Functional Impairment

Published on Aug 26, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Adult Diaper Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the India adult diaper market size reached US$ 113.9 Million in 2021. An adult diaper is a disposable undergarment worn by adults to absorb leaks and prevent the soiling of clothes due to urinary and fecal incontinence. It is manufactured using polyethylene films and polyacrylate granules and consists of super absorbent layers that soak the fluid discharge and is comfortable to wear. It is utilized by adults with medical and age-related conditions, such as dementia, mobility impairment, incontinence, and severe diarrhea. Owing to these properties, adult diapers are gaining traction among individuals across India.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

India Adult Diaper Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the growing prevalence of functional and cognitive impairment, constipation, and urinary tract infection (UTI) among the geriatric population. In addition, the rising awareness among individuals regarding the benefits provided by adult diapers, such as maintaining adequate hygiene and preventing infections and allergies, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the leading market players are introducing product variants with aloe vera gel, skin-friendly compounds, and inner linings to prevent rashes.
