SEOUL--(Korea Newswire) July 12, 2022 -- As per latest industry analysis on superabsorbent polymers by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the worldwide SAP’s market is projected to be valued above USD 6 Bn in 2022, and further expand at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2032.

Steady market growth can be attributed to the growing demand for superabsorbent polymers (SAP) for the production of hygiene and personal care products such as diapers and sanitary napkins.

Government regulations over the use of single-use plastic have hindered the procurement of petroleum-based raw materials. A similar trend is projected to continue over the decade, providing a positive outlook for manufacturers of non-petroleum-based or biodegradable SAP.

Feminine Hygiene Product Production Centres of Major Fmcg Companies In Asia Pacific Drives The Market

The Asia Pacific has been projected to be one of the most lucrative destinations for the sales of synthetic superabsorbent polymers. A rise in disposable income coupled with a sizeable increase in the number of families entering the middle-income bracket is poised to drive sales of superabsorbent polymers over the coming years in the region.

Additionally, major FMCG companies such as Kao Corporation, Kimberly Clark, and P&G have established their diaper and feminine hygiene product production centers in high-growth countries of China and India owing to rising demand for absorbent core products.

As such, East Asia and South Asia & Oceania are poised to provide high absolute dollar opportunities worth USD 830 Mn and USD 627 Mn, respectively, over the period of 2022-2032.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

· By type, petroleum-based superabsorbent polymers are projected to provide an absolute dollar opportunity worth USD 3.47 Bn over the forecast period of 2022-2032).
· Based on grade, demand for standard grade superabsorbent polymers is projected to increase at a high CAGR of around 5.1%.
· On the basis of application, superabsorbent polymer consumption for the production of hygiene and personal care products is anticipated to expand 1.6X by 2032.
· North America is predicted to capture around 25% share of the global superabsorbent polymers market by 2032.
· The market in Europe is expected to provide an absolute dollar opportunity worth USD 827 Mn by the end of 2032.

“Stringent environmental rules & regulations can be seen in developed economies such as the U.S. and U.K., which is poised to affect the sales of petroleum-based SAPs, thus providing a lucrative opportunity to market players who are into the production of non-petroleum-based SAPs,” says a Fact.MR analyst.

Key Segments of Superabsorbent Polymers Industry Research

· SAP Market by Type:
 -Petroleum-based Superabsorbent Polymers
 a) Sodium Polyacrylate
 b) Polyacrylamide Copolymer
 -Non-petroleum-based Superabsorbent Polymers

· SAP Market by Grade :
 -Standard Grade Superabsorbent Polymers
 a) Virgin
 b) Reclaimed
