Superabsorbent polymers Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyacrylate/ Polyacrylamide, Copolymers, Others), By Application (Personal Hygiene, Agriculture, Construction, Medical, Packaging, Oil & Gas, Industrial, Others) And Regional Forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104602 | Status : Ongoing



Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) also known as slush powder is a type of water absorbing polymer that can retain large amount of water comparative to its weight without being soluble. Its ability to retain water depends upon the ionic concentration of the respective aqueous solution. Super absorbent polymers have a special cross-linked structure which results in the high affinity for liquid They are highly employed in personal care and hygiene sector.

Increasing demand for sanitary napkins and diapers to the increasing awareness in consumers regarding health and hygiene shall drive the market. rise in the popularity of diaper pants for infants coupled with the hassle free usage techniques shall positively impact the market growth.
