Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are water absorbing polymers. When cross linked, the acrylic homo-polymers are turned into hydrogels. Its absorbency and swelling capacity are monitored by the usage of the degree and type of cross linkers to turn it into gel. They are characterized as absorbing and retaining large amount of liquid to their own masses. Predominantly, industries utilize superabsorbent polymers (SAP) to solidify liquid wastes for maintenance, manufacturing, environmental cleanup or recycling, etc.
Major applications of superabsorbent polymers (SAP) in various industries to meet the commercial demand are hygiene products and diapers. They are manufactured using superabsorbent polymers (SAP), as they are solidification medium for the product. In agriculture industry, it is used in drought prone regions to retain and absorb water. Medical organizations use superabsorbent polymers (SAP) to solidify and dispose-off bio-hazardous waste. Construction, packaging, wire and cable, oil and gas, fire fighting, etc. are the industries that are expected to boast fastest growth rate for the forecast period.
Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are segmented by types as sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymers and others. Sodiumpolyacrylate is the primary superabsorbent polymer, which comprises the major global market. Applications segment the superabsorbent polymers (SAP) by general applications that includes baby diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products; medical includes traditional wound care, advanced wound care and others (surgical pads, etc.); and others comprising agriculture, waste water treatment, etc. Baby diaper is the emerging industry in super absorbent polymers (SAP) market with high income opportunities and dynamic populace pyramids.
Asia Pacific is the leading geographic market for superabsorbent polymers (SAP) industry followed by Middle East and Africa. It is estimated that Asia Pacific will be the largest market with rapid growth rate over the forecast period. The superabsorbent polymers (SAP) market is emerging rapidly because of the consciousness about hygiene amongst people, high standards of living, and high disposable income.
