Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are polymers having very high molecular mass and has an ability to absorb or hold more than 10 times their mass of water or aqueous solution. These polymers have cross-linked networks of flexible polymer chains. SAPs absorb water by diffusion on the molecular level as their fibers are long chained molecules. Superabsorbent polymers is commonly produced from the polymerization of acrylic acid amalgamated with sodium hydroxide in the presence of an initiator to form a poly-acrylic acid sodium salt (sodium polyacrylate).
The global superabsorbent polymers market has been segmented on the basis of type, synthesis type, end-user industries and geography. The different types are sodium polyacrylate, copolymers, cross-linked polymers and others. Superabsorbent polymers can be produced using one of three primary methods: suspension polymerization, solution polymerization or gel polymerization. Different applications which involve the use of superabsorbent polymers are absorbent pads, baby diapers, adult diapers, feminine sanitary napkins, medical superabsorbent pads, disposable urinal and others. Geography wise, superabsorbent polymers market is segmented into four key regions namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the world (ROW). North America Superabsorbent Polymers market is divided into three countries namely U.S., Mexico and Canada. Europe is divided into Germany, U.K., France and others which are the main countries having major market share in terms of volume and revenue. Asia Pacific is further divided into China, Japan and India.
