The Asia Pacific super absorbent polymers market size is projected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the growing hygiene awareness in the region.

Asia Pacific Super Absorbent Polymers Market key takeaways

The super absorbent polymer is also called as slush powder. It is a water-absorbing polymer that can absorb and retain extremely large amounts of a liquid relative to its own mass. The water absorbing polymers that are classified as hydrogels are capable of absorbing aqueous solutions through the strong hydrogen bonding with water molecules. The super absorbent polymer has an ability to absorb water depending on the ionic concentration of the aqueous solution. In case of distilled water, a super absorbent polymer can absorb the liquid which is 300 times its weight. It can become up to 99.9% liquid, when put into a 0.9% saline solution the absorbency drops to approximately 50 times its weight. The presence of valence cations in the solution impedes the polymer's ability to bond with the water molecule and thereby it absorbs and retains water efficiently. The total absorbency and swelling capacity of super absorbent polymer is controlled by the type and degree of cross-linkers used to make the gel. Moreover, the low-density cross-linked super absorbent polymers generally have a higher absorbent capacity and swell to a larger degree. The super absorbent polymers having low-density cross-linked also have a softer and stickier gel formation. On the other hand, the high cross-link density polymers exhibit lower absorbent capacity and swell. The gel strength of high cross-link density polymers is firmer and maintains particle shape even under modest pressure. The largest use of super absorbent polymers is found in personal disposable hygiene products. The personal disposable hygiene products includes baby diapers, adult diapers, and sanitary napkins.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the growth of various industries. The outbreak had negatively affected the dynamics of the super absorbent polymers market. The social distancing norms and stringent regulations severely disrupted businesses and operational activities. The nationwide lockdowns resulted into the disruption in transportation, manufacturing activities, and supply chain of raw materials. Therefore, the pandemic situation resulted into consequent restriction of the market growth.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints and Opportunities

  • Rising disposable income and growing consumer demand for personal hygiene products are the major factors propelling the market expansion during the projected period.
  • Increasing consumption of baby diapers, adult incontinence products, and sanitary napkins is estimated to contribute to the market expansion during the forecast period.
  • Growing geriatric population and increasing usage of super absorbent polymers in personal care industries are expected to positively influence the market growth in the coming years.
  • Fluctuations in costs for commodities that are used as raw material is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Increasing industrial investments for development of bio-based superabsorbent polymers is expected to create numerous opportunities for the market growth in the long run.
