Superabsorbent Polymer Prices December 2023

Category Region Price
Superabsorbent Polymer Polymer & Resin China 1300 USD/MT

In the APAC region, the SAP supply is mainly sourced from China, where manufacturers are supporting higher stocks of raw materials. The decline of feedstock prices drags domestic producers to maintain their stocks and wait for the demand shift from other major importing countries such as India and the United States. Along with this, the manufacturing PMI which measures the production across various industrial sectors reports a sharp rise which indicates a good projection for SAP usage. Though in China the SAP demand presently lacks due to the downward trend of consumption of the major customers such as diaper and sanitary pad manufacturers that together roughly account for more than 70% share of the total market. On the other hand, next day demand from major importing countries such as India and the US has been characterized by sluggishness. As a result, the SAP price in this quarter ended at 1300 USD/MT CFR Qingdao, down mildly by 1.13%. This trend shows that there is still ample supply with weak demand and hence the overall sentiment of the market prevailing in the APAC region.

Superabsorbent Polymer Price Trend

Superabsorbent Polymer Market Analysis

The global superabsorbent polymer market size reached US$ 10.6 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 23 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 8.70% during 2023-2032.

  • The superabsorbent polymer (SAP) technology is an indispensable component in modern agriculture, delivering a breakthrough to water availability hurdles. The global agriculture sector faces increasing pressure to produce higher yields, with limited water, and in this context, SAPs become indispensable as they improve soil water retention thereby helping to address this growing and complex challenge. For instance, as per the USDA reports, demands for support animal partners would grow at a rate of 9% per annum. This upsurge is particularly palpable in places with water stress, where the farmers are at their wit’s end in search for innovative ways to enhance crop harvest. SAPs helps to increase the water supply for the plant’s roots and decrease the occurrence of irrigation. This plays a major role in the green agriculture, harmonizing with the broader environmental conservation program.
  • The market for hygiene industry has been witnessing a gradual but gradually advancing demand for superabsorbent polymers (SAPs), driven by the population rise, urbanization and awareness of personal hygiene. Similarly, SAPs are common in the various hygienic articles including diapers, feminine hygiene products and adult incontinence pads since they have tremendous water absorbing capability. For instance, the Food Drug Administration report shows that an average 6% growth per year for SAPs used in hygiene interventions. This rise is driven by a move in preference of consumers for handy and efficient hygiene commodities especially in developed and emerging markets. SAPs improve user comfort and hygiene by allowing designers to design thinner more absorbent products that promote higher standard hygiene across the globe.
  • The construction field utilizes superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) more and more for the improved functionality of different types of building materials, like in concrete. SAPs are usually blended to the concrete mixes to increase water absorption and retention capabilities of concrete and as a consequence, to strengthen, durability and longevity of concrete structures. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the need of SAPs in building engineering is growing yearly by over 10%. This growth is supported heavily by enormous public investments in projects to improve urban infrastructure by governments all over the world that aim to address urbanization issues and stimulate development. Reduction of the problems related to concrete cracking, shrinkage and moisture absorption is the role of SAPs and this contributes to the growth of structures that are resilient and sustainable and enable cities to adapt to the changing circumstances.

Product Description

Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are a groundbreaking innovation in many industries, famed for their astonishing water-soaking potential and colonization abilities. These polymers have been recognized in influencing in the realization of products such as diapers, feminine hygiene items and agricultural applications. SAPs do that in the diapers by holding the moisture that prevents babies from experiencing unpleasant sensations. Moreover, in term of agriculture, SAPs increase moisture levels in the soil which promote better crops growth despite conserving irrigation water.

Moreover, SAPs contribute to the field of building in addition to sanitation and agriculture by bolstering the concrete strength as well as resilience through prevention of cracking and shrinking problems. They have remarkable applicability in the medical and pharmaceutical industry including wound dressings and controlled-release drug delivery systems.

The demand continues growing for the SAPs all over the world; the need for water conservation, hygiene products and sustainable solutions are making this market to expand. Manufacturers are investing more in research and development that boost SAP performance areas which include biodegradability and environmental sustainability. This gave birth to SAPs from multiple sources, which has really expanded the frontiers of innovation in this area.

Europe Superabsorbent Polymer Price

In Europe the Superabsorbent Polymer (SAP) industry was overshadowed by the fourth quarter of 2023 prices that fell sharply due to the decrease in Acrylic Acid, the sector’s most essential raw material. This downward slope points out a situation of oversupply among suppliers and iunder status of demand from industries at large. Even though the manufacturing PMI exceeds average levels reflecting the improvement in production conditions, the SAP inventories demonstrate uneven demand, possibly indicating obstacles. The pricing market is in accordance with the overall condition of the economy in which its industry sectors are constantly bombarded with uncertainties, therefore, the decrease in both the production and consumption. Nonetheless, slumping prices have allowed suppliers to remain over the top in their stock endeavors, moreover, transmitting benefits to the clients, which has contributed to some comfort among the economic uncertainties.

North America Superabsorbent Polymer Price

In North America, the important industry players augmented pricing strategies during the fourth quarter of 2023, especially fueled by the producers’ actions in the Asian market. These were compounded by the Scanport SAP freight index which simultaneously skyrocketed in the near east. An ensuing rise in the competing packers in Asia caused a decline in supply and higher costs for North American buyers who in turn were forced to pay high prices. The picture illustrates how the clear the impact of international markets and the difficulties locally made price decisions arising in distant areas. Therefore, already a pressure on North American industries have emerged from the SAPs for production of different kinds of items like diapers, hygiene items, and agriculture inputs, which may have an adverse effect on the market prices and hence the prices for consumers and the market dynamics.

Asia Pacific Superabsorbent Polymer Price

In the Asia Pacific region, the superabsorbent polymer prices dropped dramatically at the fourth quarter of 2023. This drop was the result of lowering its overall feedstock price, Acrylic Acid, in the market. The surplus of SAPs in the APAC region highlights the weak demand from core sectors even worse and leads to further price decrease. Though the region in Asia Pacific faces the economic issue such as trade tensions and supply chain interruption, the SAP market must still deal with the high level of inventory, presenting an obstruction for producers. The pricing dynamics express the fragile equilibrium between supply and demand that regulate regional energy sources. This is a result of both local factors and factors from the global market which are the feedstock prices and industry demand.
