A sanitary napkin is an absorbent item used by a woman during her menstruation. They are either made of non-biodegradable cellulosic fiber and plastics or biodegradable materials such as banana fibre, bamboo corn, organic cotton etc. that do not contain any synthetic or chemical-based raw materials.

The use of hazardous chemicals and raw materials in ordinary sanitary napkins has propelled the interest of female population towards the use of biodegradable sanitary napkins. Increasing awareness to protect the environment is also driving the adoption of biodegradable raw materials in sanitary pads. Factors such as increasing population of working women, growing awareness about female hygiene, and increasing health issues such as skin irritation and rashes are also contributing to the growth of the biodegradable sanitary napkins market across the globe. Non-biodegradable sanitary napkins use chemicals like dioxins, furans, chlorines and fragrances which causes skin problems and create a negative impact on the environment. On the other hand, biodegradable sanitary napkins use materials such as banana fiber, corn starch, water hyacinth, organic cotton, etc. which are comfortable, hygienic, cost-effective, and has a good capacity to absorb blood adequately. Some of the other factors driving this market include increasing awareness levels, government schemes and programmes, improving distribution networks, etc.
