Dublin, June 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mll6qc/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Superabsorbent Polymer Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The global SAP market to grow at a CAGR of 5.88% over the period 2014-2019
SAP are chemically or physically cross-linked acrylic homo-polymer gels that are capable of absorbing liquids. The capacity to absorb depends on the degree of cross linking. SAP is used in a wide range of applications, such as baby diapers; adult incontinence products; feminine hygiene products; and agriculture, mining, medical, and related applications.
The global SAP market can be segmented into four based of application: Baby diapers, adult incontinence products, feminine hygiene products, and others. SAP is widely used due to its high absorbing capacity.
Manufacturers are shifting toward bio-based materials because of environmental concerns. Compared to synthetic materials, bio-based materials are less toxic and have lower disposable costs. SAP is manufactured using cellulose, starch, chitin, natural gums, and other related products. BASF, Cargill, and Novozymes in joint agreement develop bio-based acrylic acid by converting renewable raw materials. Bio-based gels are effective for agricultural practices, as they help retain moisture in drought and no residue remains in the soil once the gel disintegrates.
According to the report, SAP is used widely in baby diapers, adult incontinence products, and feminine hygiene products. SAP products help in keeping the skin dry, reduce skin irritation caused by wetness, and prevent the spread of infections. Globally, the need for hygiene products is on the rise because of the growing aging population, increased health consciousness, and reduced access to such products. Many women still lack proper access to hygiene products and solutions. SAP replaces traditional products such as cotton, paper wadding, cotton, and cellulose fiber.
Further, the report states that price volatility of acrylic acid is one of the major challenges confronting the market.
