Global super absorbent polymer market is anticipated to grow at impressive rate Booming personal care industry and growing consciousness related to personal hygiene backed by growing disposable income, super absorbent polymer market is forecast to witness significant growth until 2024. However, volatility in raw material prices can hinder the growth of the market.

Global super absorbent polymer market can be segmented based on raw material type, application and region. Based on application, super absorbent polymer market can be segmented into disposable diapers, adult incontinence, female hygiene, among others. Disposable diapers segment is expected to dominate the market in the forecast period due to increasing population and growing geriatric population. Increasing awareness pertaining to the adult incontinence and female hygiene, demand for female hygiene is anticipated to grow at impressive rate during the forecast period. In terms of raw material type, market can be segregated into Sodium polyacrylate, Polyacrylamide Co-polymer and others. Sodium polyacrylate dominated the market as the raw material has high water absorption capacity when compared with its mass; therefore, the raw material is the preferred choice for the manufacturing of the disposable diapers and other products.

Key players operating in the super absorbent polymer market are Nippon Shokubai Co., Ltd., BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, Sanyo Chemical Industries Ltd., LG Chem Ltd., Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd., Formosa Plastics Corporation, Yixing Danson Technology Co., Ltd., Kao Corporation, Zhejiang Satellite Petro-Chemical Co. Ltd., among others. Companies operating in this growing market are investing in research & development in to further enhance the water retention capabilities of the super absorbent polymer. Another strategies employed by companies is expansion of production capacity. For instance, in 17, LG Chem Ltd. announced to expand their production capacity of super absorbent polymer from 100KT to 500kT by the end of 2019.
