An adult diaper is a disposable undergarment worn by individuals with various medical conditions, such as mobility impairment, incontinence, dementia and severe diarrhea. The diapers are commonly available in flat, pant and pad-based variants. They are manufactured using polyethylene films, synthetic elastane, polyacrylate granules, cellulose fluff pulp, polypropylene and non-woven hydrophobic and hydrophilic materials. Adult diapers contain specialized super-absorbent chemicals that can absorb liquids in high volumes. They are comfortable to wear, convenient to use and soak the fluid discharge effectively. In comparison to baby diapers, adult diapers can be worn for a longer duration and have higher absorbency levels.
The Europe adult diaper market is primarily being driven by the rising awareness regarding urinary incontinence, especially in the elderly consumers. There is an increasing demand among consumers for pant-style diapers due to their flexibility and breathable waistbands that prevent skin rashes and itching. In line with this, the rising awareness regarding maintaining adequate hygiene has resulted in a significant rise in the demand for adult diapers. Various innovations, such as the launch of biodegradable and disposable diapers integrated with smart technologies that detect moisture levels and send real-time alerts through smartphone applications, are providing a thrust to the market growth. Other factors, including significant growth in the e-commerce industry and increasing product adoption in medical centers and hospitals for patients with chronic medical ailments, are anticipated to drive the market growth across the region.
