Super Absorbent Polymer Market by Type (Synthetic and Natural), Application (Personal Care, Healthcare, Agriculture & Horticulture, and Others), and Production Method (Suspension Polymerization, Solution Polymerization, and Gel Polymerization): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027

The global super absorbent polymer market was valued at $7.6 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $10.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2020 to 2027.
Super absorbent polymer (SAP) is cross-linked polymer, which is insoluble in water. Its fundamental feature is its capacity to absorb liquid and keep them trapped or store, even under extreme pressure. SAP is different from sponge; sponge holds liquid and releases it when squeezed, whereas SAP turns liquid into gel and holds it. It is used in numerous applications such as diapers and in agriculture to regulate the moisture in the soil and release for the plants during dry period.
The major factor contributing toward the growth of the market include increase in population. Increase in population is up surging the demand for baby diapers. Some of the countries where diaper market is anticipated to increase at considerable rate are India, Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey, Brazil, and others. Moreover, high number of aged population in countries such as Japan, Italy, Finland, Greece, and others drives the penetration of adult diapers in these countries, which further boost the market growth. However, matured markets for diapers are expected to hinder the market growth. On the contrary, factors such as rise in awareness about diaper products in rural areas of African countries & India and product advancement in diaper products are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period.
