Request Sample Report:

The process of converting a monomer molecule together in a chemical reaction to form a polymer chain is called as polymerization. A superabsorbent polymer is a three-dimensional network form by chemical cross linking or physical cross linking of large number of molecules composed of certain repeating units. The superabsorbent polymer has capability to absorb a liquid. And this absorbency and capacity of polymer depends on degree of cross linking. The superabsorbent polymer products are mostly used in personal disposable hygiene products. It also used for blocking water absorption in underground power or communications cable, horticultural water retention agents. The first commercial use of SAP was in 1978 for the production of feminine napkins in Japan.

SAP can be classified on the basis of product type such as sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymer and others. Sodium polyacrylate dominated the SAP market with around 60% share of the total volume of SAP consumed in 2014. Polyacrylamide copolymer was the second largest product segment of SAP in terms of volume. Baby diapers, adult incontinence products, feminine hygiene and others are the key application markets for the superabsorbent polymers. Baby diaper is the most dominant application market for superabsorbent polymers. It accounted for around two third shares of the total market in 2014. Adult incontinence products accounted for second largest application market for SAP in 2014. Adult incontinence products market for superabsorbent polymers is expected to be the fastest growing application market during the forecast period.
