DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7cqkz6/superabsorbent) has announced the addition of the "Superabsorbent Polymers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
This study analyzes, estimates, and forecasts the global superabsorbent polymers (SAP) market from the demand perspective in terms of volume (Kilo tons) and revenue (USD million) from 2014 to 2020. The report also analyzes several market drivers and restraints along with their impact on the market during the forecast period.
Superabsorbent polymers are used in the manufacture of diapers and hygiene products. These include feminine hygiene products and training pants. These polymers are used for various other applications in agriculture, paper packaging and wastewater treatment. This adds to demand for superabsorbent polymers in the market.
However, volatility in prices of raw materials is anticipated to hamper growth of the superabsorbent polymers market. Key players are now focusing on research and development in order to enhance the performance of existing products and introduce new advanced products in the market.
North America is the largest market for superabsorbent polymers and is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period. Asia Pacific includes China, India, Indonesia and Japan. This region is likely to be the fastest growing region, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2014 and 2020. Demand for superabsorbent polymers in Europe stood at 501.6 kilo tons in 2013. It is anticipated to witness moderate growth during the forecast period between 2014 and 2020 due to the mature market for baby diapers and feminine hygiene products in the region.
