Super Absorbent Polymers Market

Super Absorbent Polymers Market will Grow at CAGR of 5.5%

Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are water absorbing polymers that are prepared from acrylic acid and cross-linkers. They are characterized as absorbing and retaining large amount of liquid to their own masses. It can be classified on the basis of its products like sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymer, ethylene-maleic anhydride copolymer, and polyvinyl alcohol copolymers, etc. For efficiency, these polymers are moderately neutralized and cross linked with acrylic acid. This formulates them into gel which has 99% water swelling capacity. These are used majorly in sanitary napkins. Indeed, they have replaced the traditional absorbent materials like cloth, cotton, paper wadding, and cellulose fiber.


This absorbent is widely used for baby diapers, adult incontinence products, sanitary napkins, paper packaging, power or communications cable, medical, agriculture, horticultural water retention, control of spill and waste aqueous fluid, and artificial snow, etc. Today, this polymer with enhanced concentration has gained supreme adhesion, water absorption, and coverage & fire protection.


The global polymer market is worth more than US $6.06 billion and the volume of production is over 1,861.8 kilo tons. It is expected to value over US $8.78 billion by the year 2020. This market will grow at CAGR of 5.5% for the estimated period till 2020. This market fairly spread worldwide regions like North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). North America is the leading region for hygiene products market followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. Asia Pacific is the rapidly emerging market with a wide scope for this product segments.
