The super absorbent polymers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% between 2019 and 2024.
The super absorbent polymers market is projected to grow from USD 9.0 billion in 2019 to USD 12.9 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 7.4%. The increased demand for SAP in applications such as personal hygiene, agriculture, medical, and industrial is expected to drive the growth of the super absorbent polymers market across the globe. The growing population, increasing demand for fluffless personal hygiene products, focus on effective irrigation management, and adoption of eco-friendly products act as drivers for the growth of the SAP market.

The agriculture application segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2019 to 2024.
Among the applications, the production technology segment of the super absorbent polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value.SAP is used to improve soil fertility, prevent erosion, and provide nutrients by increasing the water holding capacity, permeability, and reducing the evaporation and infiltration rates.

The three most common factors of soil condition that hamper the growth of plant and crop yield are low water retention ability, high evapotranspiration rate, and soil moisture leaching.Along with these factors, some other factors such as overuse of synthetic fertilizers & pesticides, improper irrigation practices, unforeseen drought conditions, degradation, and salination affect soil & plant and can result in the permanent damage of soil.

Advantages of using SAP in agriculture fields are improved soil quality, water preservation, seedling development, increased seed sprouting, and resistance to drought stress.

The polyacrylate/polyacrylamide copolymer segment is estimated to be the largest type during the forecast period.
Based on type, the polyacrylate/polyacrylamide segment is estimated to lead the super absorbent polymers market between 2019 and 2024.Polyacrylamide is one of the most commonly used SAP for agriculture, horticulture, and gardening purposes.

The properties such as soil stabilization and flocculation of suspended particles to improve the runoff water, limit surface sealing, increase infiltration rate made polyacrylamides as widely accepted super absorbent polymer.Some of the common applications of polyacrylamide copolymer are rain-fed agriculture, sprinkler irrigation, and highway cuts.

It is highly cost-effective on the part of furrow irrigation systems, where it can be applied at a lower rate. It can also be used in other applications such as food packaging, adhesives, coatings, and paper manufacturing.

The super absorbent polymers market in APAC is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The APAC super absorbent polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2024.Growing population, increasing industrialization, economic development, and biodiversity are the key factors attributed to the growth of the SAP market in APAC.

The demand for diapers is very high in APAC owing to its large population.Agriculture is one of the biggest sectors in the region.

Availability of fresh water is a serious issue in the region due to increased environmental deterioration, high soil erosion, occasional floods, increase in pollution level, and others. This is expected to increase the consumption of super absorbent polymers in the agriculture application.
