Global Super Absorbent Polymer Market was valued at $6,174 million in 2015 and is expected to garner $8,551 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period 2016 - 2022. Super absorbent polymers (SAPs), also known as slush powder, are physically or chemically cross-linked polymer gels exhibiting hydrophilic property. These are used for absorption and retention of large volumes of organic and inorganic fluids. Acrylic acid, its sodium or potassium salts, and acrylamide are the key raw materials used in the industrial production of SAPs. The primary application of SAP are baby diapers, adult incontinence products, and sanitary napkins. These have applications in the healthcare and agricultural sector, such as wound dressing, medical waste solidification, and seed coating.
The Asia-Pacific region is projected to dominate the global market, with China being the forerunner in manufacturing and utilizing SAPs. At present, increase in demand for fluff-less or thin diapers, surge in geriatric population in developed countries, and rise in focus on agriculture at global level drive the market. However, volatility in the prices of raw materials used for the production of SAPs is expected to hamper the growth and development of the market. On-going research & innovation on bio-based SAPs and government support to improve hygiene in the developing countries are expected to offer considerable opportunities for the market growth.
The global super absorbent polymer market is analyzed based on type, application, production method, and geography. Based on type, the market is divided into sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymer, ethylene maleic anhydride copolymer, and others. The others segment includes cross-linked carboxymethylcellulose, polyvinyl alcohol copolymers, cross-linked polyethylene oxide, starch grafted copolymer of polyacrylonitrile (PAN), and more. The application areas of the market are broadly categorized into personal care, healthcare, agriculture & horticulture, and others. The others segment includes automotive, construction, packaging, entertainment, and industrial water application. Each of these are subsegmented into various application areas. The SAP market is also categorized in terms of production method, that is, suspension polymerization, solution polymerization, and gel polymerization.
The market is analyzed based on four regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. In 2015, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share in the global market, owing to the emergence of China as the leading consumer of SAPs. This region is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period.
