Incontinence pads include impermeable, multi-layered sheets with high absorbency to control urinary incontinence in adults. They are primarily used by patients who have lost bladder control ranging from the slight release of urine after sneezing, coughing, or laughing to complete urinal incontinence due to dementia, arthritis, diarrhea, mobility impairment, etc. The linings of incontinence pads are made up of polypropylene, polyethylene, sodium polychromate, etc., and are infused with various skin-friendly compounds. These pads prevent soiling of clothes and protect the skin from wetness and rashes. As a result, incontinence pads are widely adopted across hospitals, clinics, and home care-based medical setups.
In Latin America, the growing prevalence of urinary incontinence conditions, particularly among the geriatric population, is primarily augmenting the demand for incontinence pads. Furthermore, the increasing instances of mobility impairment due to several chronic diseases, such as arthritis, paralysis, sclerosis, brain stroke, etc., are also propelling the market growth. Additionally, the rising hygiene consciousness among consumers coupled with the easy product availability across Latin American countries is further catalyzing the market for incontinence pads. Moreover, the increasing popularity of customized and gender-specific product variants is augmenting the demand for boxer-type diapers and disposable liners for men, and pads and underpants for women. Several government bodies in Latin America are introducing subsidized policies for lowering the high prices of incontinence pads to improve their accessibility across diverse masses. Apart from this, the growing environmental concerns towards waste generation have prompted the need for ecologically-sustainable product variants. Several regional manufacturers are adopting biodegradable and reusable materials for manufacturing incontinence pads, which are further expected to drive the market growth in Latin America over the forecasted period.
