The global biodegradable superabsorbent materials market is anticipated to reach USD 190 million by 2024. Demand for adult incontinence products & disposable diapers is said to boost the market during the forecast period (2016-2024). This product derives much of its demand from agricultural applications. Moreover, the feminine hygiene segment may provide unique opportunities for the global market over the next eight years.
A rapidly growing geriatric population is expected to impact the overall product demand in the near future. In addition, this population segment is susceptible to various disorders, such as glandular diseases and urinal incontinence. Such anomalies call for products with high absorbing properties. Increasing population has threatened environmental sustainability & food security by exerting immense pressures on the environment. Environmental damage and the paucity of space to dispose conventional materials impel companies to adopt eco-friendly materials. These materials are designed to soak & retain large quantities of liquids in relation to their own masses.
