Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview:

The global super absorbent polymers (SAP) market size reached US$ 8.6 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 15.6 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.69% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Super absorbent polymers (SAPs) are substances that can hold a considerable amount of liquid. They are prepared from acrylic acid cross-linked polymer networks constituted by water-soluble building blocks. They are white sugar-like hygroscopic substances absorbing water to form transparent gel-based particles that retain moisture under pressure without rupturing or conflagrating. SAPsare commonly used as an absorbent for water and aqueous solutions for diapers, adult incontinence products, and feminine hygiene products. They aid in keeping the skin dry, protecting against skin irritation, preventing the risk of developing infections, and providing improved quality of life and personal dignity. As a result, they find extensive applications in the automotive, construction and packaging industries.

Super Absorbent Polymers Market Trends:

The increasing demand for premium quality diapers on account of rising concerns among parents about the health and hygiene of their babies represents one of the major factors positively influencing the demand for SAPs around the world. In addition, the growing awareness among women about personal hygiene and consequently rising sales of sanitary napkins is driving the market. Apart from this, the rising number of farming activities is catalyzing the demand for SAPs in the agriculture sector to reduce soil erosion by surface run-offs, fertilizer and pesticide leaching to groundwater. Furthermore, due to their disinfected properties, SAPsare used in the safe management of infected respiratory secretions. This, in confluence with the increasing prevalence of viral infections, is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, extensive research and development (R&D) activities to produce bio-based SAPs by leading players are anticipated to provide a positive outlook for the market.
