The global disposable innerwear market reached US$ 1.83 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.62 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.11% during 2023-2028. The burgeoning wellness tourism sector, increasing product usage during surgical procedures and the easy availability through online stores represent some of the key factors driving the market.
A disposable innerwear is designed to be worn once by individuals and thrown away. It comprises briefs, boxers, inners, shorts, and camisoles that are manufactured using materials, such as cotton, synthetic, paper, polyethylene, and nonwoven fabric. It is available in various designs, sizes, and patterns for men, women, and children. It is convenient, lightweight, comfortable, highly breathable, helps protect the skin and clothes, and eliminates moisture and odor as compared to regularly used innerwear. Disposable innerwear also reduces resistance and minimizes the risk of developing skin chafing and rashes. At present, product manufacturers are introducing eco-friendly and plant-based variants of disposable innerwear, which are made from sustainable and biodegradable materials that can be easily compostable and recyclable. They are also focusing on meeting the requirement of consumers with sensitive skin and expand their product portfolio.
There is significant growth in the wellness tourism sector on account of the increasing need for adopting a healthy lifestyle and the desire to reduce stress and prevent different diseases. This, coupled with the rising focus of people on their physical appearance, represents one of the major factors driving the demand for disposable innerwear around the world. Besides this, the expanding number of resorts, salons, and wellness centers that offer spa services are encouraging individuals to use disposable innerwear for hygiene purposes and reduce the risks of stains during spa sessions. Moreover, the growing adoption of disposable innerwear among individuals during travel over conventionally used innerwear on account of its numerous advantages is influencing the market positively. In addition, the rising need for disposable innerwear among patients during and after various surgical procedures for mitigating the spread of hospital-acquired infections, bacteria, germs, and viruses is contributing to the market growth in the healthcare sector. The growing demand for nursing-friendly variants and the rising need for comfortable maternity wear is also catalyzing the demand for disposable innerwear. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, busy lifestyles, and the expanding purchasing power of consumers are increasing the sales of disposable innerwear through online retail channels, which offer easy availability, convenience, and vast product catalogs. This, coupled with the thriving e-commerce industry and the increasing penetration of high-speed internet connectivity, is creating a positive outlook for the market.
