Market Overview:

The global biodegradable superabsorbent materials market size reached US$ 134.55 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 186.26 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.25% during 2023-2028. The increasing demand for female hygiene, disposable diapers, adult incontinence products, and the stringent government regulations on reducing plastic waste are key factors driving the market.

Biodegradable superabsorbent materials (BSAMs) can absorb and retain large amounts of liquid while breaking down into harmless compounds in the environment. These materials are made from natural polymers, such as starch, cellulose, and chitosan, and can be used in various applications, including agriculture, hygiene products, and water treatment. In agriculture, BSAMs improve water retention in soil, thereby reducing water usage and improving crop yields. These materials are used as mulch films to prevent soil erosion and improve the soil's overall health. Additionally, they are used as soil amendments to improve nutrient availability and plant growth. They are also used in hygiene products instead of traditional superabsorbent materials from non-renewable resources such as petroleum. These materials are commonly used in diapers, sanitary pads, and incontinence products, where they can provide superior absorbency while reducing the environmental impact of these products. BSAMs are widely used in wound dressings, where they can absorb excess fluid and help to promote healing. They offer a sustainable alternative to traditional superabsorbent materials, which can have a significant environmental impact due to their non-biodegradable nature. They are also extensively used in water treatment to remove contaminants from wastewater and other polluted water sources. These materials can absorb heavy metals, organic compounds, and other pollutants, effectively filtering the water and making it safe for human and animal consumption.
