Super Absorbent Polymer Market

Market Insight

The super absorbent polymer markets are capable of absorbing large volumes of water and other aqueous solutions. The other characteristic of these materials is that they can still absorb water when they are under pressure. In 1978 super absorbent polymer markets were first produced commercially in Japan. Their introduction has revolutionized the hygienic and healthcare products segment. super absorbent polymer markets are suitable for use in the making of hygienic and sanitary products. The application of these polymers can be found across wide areas. super absorbent polymer markets are produced from acrylic acids and a crosslinker either by solution or suspension polymerization. The distinctive crosslinked structure of the polymers makes them water swelling and not water-soluble. The market for superabsorbent polymers is highly competitive with the presence of big players such as BASF SE, Nippon Shokubai, and many more.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the halting of manufacturing facilities. This sudden halt of production led to a shortfall in supply to end-user industries. The restrictions on international freight movement by the countries were also responsible for the shortfall in the supply. The global supply chains were affected too. The importance of personal hygiene was also highlighted during the pandemic. Therefore, people are demanding more hygienic products.  According to UNO world population in 2020 was 7.8 billion which grew at an annual rate of 1.1% from 2015-2020. With a birth rate of 18.1 births per 1000, the demand for baby diapers and other sanitary products is on a constant rise. The growing awareness regarding personal hygiene is also driving the demand for hygienic products. The farmers giving importance to effective irrigation systems and water management is also increasing the demand for agricultural-based super absorbent polymer markets. The use of these polymers results in effective water management in water-scarce areas, high crop yield, and other benefits. All these factors are driving the market. The volatility in the prices of the raw material is acting as a restraint. Increasing investment in bio-degradable and environmentally sustainable polymers provide a huge opportunity for the growth of the market.


Asia-Pacific is projected to be the highest revenue-generating region in the superabsorbent polymer market. The Asia-pacific region is home to two of the most populous nation India and China with high birth rates. This is leading to increased demand for baby diaper pads. Agriculture is practiced by many people in this region so the demand for agriculture-based super absorbent polymer markets is also high. North America is anticipated to be the second-largest revenue-making region in the market. The growing awareness regarding personal hygiene is the key reason for the rising demand of hygienic products. Europe is expected to be the third-largest revenue-making region in the market.
