DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Super Absorbent Polymer Market by Type, Application and Production Method - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022" report to their offering.
The Global Super Absorbent Polymer Market is expected to garner $8,551 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. The synthetic type held more than half of the global market in 2015.
Super absorbent polymers are the materials bearing excellent liquid absorbing properties that can exceed up to 500 times of its own weight even under pressure. The most often used raw material for industrial manufacture of SAPs are acrylic acid & its sodium or potassium salts as well as acrylamide. Global Super absorbent polymer market can be segmented based on type, application, method, and geography. It can be categorized as synthetic or natural type, in which natural SAPs are rigorously researched to develop environment friendly super absorbent polymers.
Upsurge in adult population of developed nation and increase in requirement of diapers in developing countries are the major factors expected to drive the market growth. However, non-biodegradability of synthetic super absorbent polymers and volatility in its raw material prices are anticipated to hamper this growth. Rise in trend for bio-based personal care products and government efforts to promote cleanliness & use of personal disposable products are expected to create growth opportunities for various players in the market.
