DESCRIPTION

Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) were first produced in the U.S. and Japan in 1970. These polymers were used in the manufacture of baby diapers and adult incontinence products due to their high water absorbing and retaining capacity. Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) help keep the skin dry, thereby preventing the spread of infections in diaper users. Demand for these polymers is expected to be high in the near future. There are two types of superabsorbent polymers (SAP): sodium polyacrylate and polyacrylamide copolymer. Both these polymers are used in the manufacture of diapers and various hygiene products in the market. The market for superabsorbent polymers (SAP) is anticipated to grow significantly due to increasing demand for hygiene products.

Superabsorbent Polymers Market Superabsorbent Polymers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020 Transparency Market Research has published a new market report titled "Superabsorbent Polymers (Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyacrylamide Copolymer and Others) Market for Baby Diapers, Adult Incontinence Products, Feminine Hygiene Products and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020." According to the report, the global superabsorbent polymers (SAP) market was valued at USD 6.06 billion in 2013 and is anticipated to reach USD 8.78 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% between 2014 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global superabsorbent polymers market stood at 1,861.8 kilo tons in 2013. Increasing demand for baby diapers and adult diapers in emerging economies of Asia Pacific is likely to boost demand for superabsorbent polymers in the region over the next six years. Additionally, rising hygiene awareness among the ever-increasing population is estimated to boost demand for superabsorbent polymers in Asia Pacific. Browse the full Superabsorbent Polymers Market Report at http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/superabsorbent-polymers-market.html Superabsorbent polymers have a wide scope of applications not only in diaper and hygiene products industries but also in agriculture, medical and construction industries due to their high water absorbing and retaining property. Superabsorbent polymers are used in potting soil in the field of agriculture. They are used in the manufacture of medical dressings in the medical industry. Superabsorbent polymers are used in cable wires in the construction industry. However, volatility in prices of acrylic acid, a major raw material used in the manufacture of superabsorbent polymers, is projected to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Companies are now shifting towards bio-based materials due to environmental concerns. Superabsorbent polymers are now made form bio-based materials by using cellulose and starch, among others. This is likely to add to demand for bio-based superabsorbent polymers in the near future. Demand for SAP is expected to be high in Asia Pacific due to growing end-use industries in countries such as China and India. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Superabsorbent polymers are used on a large scale by the hygiene products industry in developed regions such as North America. North America is the largest market for superabsorbent polymers, followed by Transparency Market Research 2 REPORT DESCRIPTION 3. Superabsorbent Polymers Market Europe. Europe accounted for more than 25% share of the global volume of superabsorbent polymers in 2013. Asia Pacific also accounted for approximately one fourth of the global superabsorbent polymers market in 2013. The SAP market in Asia Pacific is expected to be fastest growing, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2014 and 2020. Rest of the World, including the Middle East and Africa, is likely to be the second-fastest growing market for superabsorbent polymers during the forecast period. Get Copy Of Sample Report From here : http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=S&amp;rep_id=2898 Product segment of superabsorbent polymers is divided into three types: sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymer and others including ethylene-maleic anhydride copolymer, polyvinyl alcohol copolymers, etc. All types of superabsorbent polymers are used in various applications such as sanitary napkins, training pants and diapers. Hence, demand for these polymers is high in the market. Polyacrylamide copolymer is estimated to be the fastest growing segment, due to its non-toxic nature and high water absorbing and retaining property. The others segment accounted for 12.6% of the global SAP market in 2013. Application segments include baby diapers, adult incontinence products, feminine hygiene products and others. Among these, baby diaper is primarily expected to boost demand for superabsorbent polymers in the market. The baby diaper industry accounted for more than 74% share of the global superabsorbent market in 2013. Baby diaper is also anticipated to be the fastest growing segment in the near future. The market for adult incontinence products was the second largest, which accounted for 224.3 kilo tons in 2013. The others segment includes applications that serve agriculture, medical and construction industries, among others.
