Nov 2020. Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are based on polyacrylic acid that can absorb hundreds of times its weight in liquids, making the polymers useful in disposable sanitary products like diapers, feminine hygiene products, adult incontinence products, and certain industrial materials. Use in diapers predominates by far, accounting for about 70% of global consumption. Use has been growing in this application in mainland China and other developing markets where disposable incomes are rising, more women are working outside of the home, the population is growing, and commercial availability is increasing. In other regions like the United States, Western Europe, and Japan, penetration of disposable diapers is already well over 90%, so the markets are mature. However, the industry is counting on growth in the incontinence market because of aging populations, longer lifespans, and greater acceptance by consumers.
