Superabsorbent Polymers (SAPs) are ionic in nature and their constant structure property helps them to absorb large quantities of water and other aqueous solutions without dissolving by solvation of water molecules via hydrogen bonds. SAPs are extensively used in hygiene, agriculture, medical and other industries; in order to enhance performance of products. Innovations in medical, pharmaceutical and agriculture industries and increasing awareness about hygiene products are the key drivers for the growth of the market.
The report segments the global SAPs market on the basis of raw-material types, process, application, and geography. Based on raw-material types, SAPs is classified into sodium polyacrylate, potassium copolymers and others.
Agriculture & Horticulture
Medical & Pharmaceuticals and others.
Inverse Suspension Polymerization
Solution Polymerization and others.
Each of these segments is further broken down to give an in-depth analysis of the market. The SAPs market report analyses the superabsorbent polymers in various applications and covers the market demand with respect to regions.
The SAPs market is driven by increased demand from the end-use industries such as hygiene, medical and pharmaceuticals. Asia-Pacific, with its growing economy and rapidly expanding production capacity of SAPs is projected to witness the highest growth in the SAPs between 2016 and 2021. The innovation of green chemicals (BioSAPs) is yet another driving factor for the growing demand of SAPs. The global market size is estimated to reach $7.7bn by 2021 at a CAGR of around 7.97%.
Sodium Polyacrylate is mainly used in the market due to its high absorption capacity i.e. ability to absorb as much as 200 to 300 times its mass in water and used in several applications such as agriculture, medical, oil and gas and other industrial applications. However, in recent times, the demand for potassium copolymers has increased compared with the past, as they are the highly effective when used in large scale farming and agricultural applications, especially at the time of sprouting and development of the root network due to good aeration of the soil.
