Also known as an adult nappy, it assists them in urinating or defecating without using toilets. It is made up of comfortable and leakage protective materials that aid in absorbing the excretion and preventing leakage or soilage of outer garments. Its outer lining is made up of polyethylene, whereas the inner lining consists of polypropylene, vitamin E, aloe vera and other skin-friendly compounds to prevent skin irritations caused by the direct contact of the diaper. These diapers are commonly made with good quality materials so as to improve the fluid absorption and retention abilities of the same.

North America Adult Diaper Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the growing geriatric population in North America. There is an increasing prevalence of incontinence among the elderly, due to which adult diapers are extensively utilized. Furthermore, the sedentary lifestyles led by the masses and their unhealthy dietary habits have led to an increase in the occurrence of obesity, which, in turn, has contributed to a high rate of adult incontinence. This, along with inflating per capita income levels of individuals, has impelled them to use superior quality adult diapers. Along with this, the rising awareness about personal hygiene, along with the easy product availability across the region, is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the introduction of gendered product variants is providing a thrust to the market growth. For instance, the boxer-type diapers for men and underpants-shaped nappies designed for women are widely being adopted by the consumers. Several manufacturers are continually engaging in the development of improved product variants that provide enhanced comfort and convenience to the users. The advent of thinner and odor control diapers is providing an impetus to the market growth. In addition to this, several companies in the region are launching diapers made from organic materials that are not only skin-friendly but also biodegradable in nature, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 5.3 Billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 3.3% during 2020-2025.
