The global market for diapers has made a remarkable mark on the global economy with its innovative products. These synthetic underwear has made living convenient for not just new mothers, but also for adults with incontinence. The global diaper market’s phenomenal progress is largely attributable to introduction of adult diapers. Some of the important factors supporting the growth of this market are rising geriatric population, growing number of women workers, and drop in the infant mortality rates.
Use of Diapers for Adults Boosts Market
As hospitals, healthcare institutes, and home healthcare facilities are encouraging the use of diapers to patients suffering from urinary incontinence the market is witnessing a rapid growth rate. Furthermore, the market is also being propelled by the rise in the income levels of urban dwellers, who can now afford diapers for childcare.
Biodegradable Diapers to Boost Sales
The disposable diapers were leading the global diaper market in 2010. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years as they offer unparalleled convenience. Furthermore, as companies are trying develop biodegradable disposable diapers, the sale of such diapers will boost the growth of this segment further.
Europe Leads the Global Diaper Market
Of all the regional segments in the global diaper market, Europe is in the leading position as it accounts for one third of the market. On the other hand, maturation of diaper market in North America has led to a drop in the demand for diapers in this region. Some of the important players in the global diaper market are SCA Hygiene Products, Unicharm, Kao Corporation, Kimberley Clark, Procter & Gamble, and Hengan.
The hindrance in the growth of the global diaper market are the growing environmental concerns over disposable of the diapers that is leading to environmental pollution.
