Diaper Market in India: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The diaper market in India reached a volume of 4.7 Billion Units in 2018. The market is further projected to reach a volume of 7.4 Billion Units by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of more than 8% during 2019-2024. A diaper is a type of underwear that allows the wearer to urinate or defecate without the use of a toilet. It absorbs or contains the waste and prevents soiling of the external clothing or environment. Diapers are primarily worn by infants, toddlers and children who are not toilet trained or who experience bedwetting. They are also used by adults with incontinence problems or in circumstances where a toilet is unavailable. In India, diapers were introduced during the late 20th century. Rapidly expanding infant population and increasing participation of women in the workforce have been the major growth-inducing factors for the diaper market in the region.

Drivers of Diaper Market in India:

  • Demand for diapers is growing steadily across India on account of their benefits such as convenience, increased hygiene and low risk of skin damage. Moreover, increasing awareness of personal hygiene, changing lifestyle and a continuous rise in the purchasing power of the consumers in India have created a shift from traditional cloth nappies to diapers.
  • Obesity, urinary tract infection, functional/cognitive impairment, chronic coughs, and constipation are some of the main causes of incontinence observed in both men and women. With the growing aging population, high prevalence of urinary incontinence has been witnessed which has subsequently led to an increase in the use of adult diapers. 
  • Some brands are enhancing their product offerings so as to attract a larger consumer-base. For instance, manufacturers are introducing diapers with an inner lining containing aloe vera gel, vitamin E, and other skin-friendly compounds often found in diaper rash creams to avoid rashes on the skin.
  • The infant mortality rate has significantly declined in the country due to advancing healthcare facilities. This has led to an increase in the number of infants, thereby creating immense growth opportunities in the diaper industry. In addition, improving economic conditions coupled with rising number of modern nuclear families with working parents has led to the adoption of disposable diapers.
  • The emergence of disposable biodegradable diapers is further influencing the Indian diaper market as they are eco-friendly in nature and prevent environmental contamination. Besides this, rising online sales coupled with rapid urbanization are some of the other factors anticipated to foster the market growth.
