Global Biodegradable Diapers Market to Grow at 7.8% During 2024-2032, Impelled by Growing Environmental Concerns

December 29, 2021 | Retail

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Biodegradable Diapers Market Report by Raw Material (Cotton/Wood pulp, Bamboo, Starch, and Others), End-User (Babies, Adults), Distribution Channel (Pharmacies, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global biodegradable diapers market reached a value of US$ 4.0 Billion in 2023. A diaper is a type of disposable undergarment that allows the wearer, primarily babies and bed-ridden adults, to urinate and defecate without using a toilet. It absorbs and retains the waste, thereby preventing the soiling of external clothing and the environment. Unlike conventional diapers, biodegradable diapers are made from sustainable materials, such as cotton, starch, bamboo, wood pulp, and plant-based gel, while eliminating the use of chlorine and fragrances. They also employ eco-friendly production methods, which enables the components to break down naturally and compost faster.

Global Biodegradable Diapers Market Trends:

The rising environmental concerns, such as land and water pollution, represents the key factor responsible for the increasing popularity of biodegradable diapers as an alternative, sustainable solution to traditional diapers. Moreover, the increasing awareness regarding personal hygiene and the rising prevalence of obesity, urinary incontinence, and cognitive impairment, especially amongst the geriatric population, is catalyzing the market growth. Additionally, increasing health consciousness, along with the rising awareness regarding the negative impact of chemicals used in traditionally-used diapers on individual health are further facilitating the product demand across the globe. Apart from this, the rising instances of skin allergies and rashes, particularly in babies, has encouraged key payers to introduce biodegradable diapers with skin-friendly compounds. This, in turn, is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the introduction of technologically advanced product variants, such as thinner diapers with high absorbency and smart diapers that can detect moisture and send real-time alerts through smartphone applications, are further creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% During 2024-2032.
