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. This absorbency and capacity of polymer depends on degree of cross linking. SAP classified into three categories, liquid absorbed (organic or inorganic type), gelling mechanism (physical cross linking or chemical cross linking), and a type of a polymer used (synthetic or a semi-synthetic).

Polyacrylic acid, polyacrylamide, Poly (N – isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM), Polysaccharides are the key raw materials used to make water absorbing polymers. The low-density cross-linked SAPs generally have a higher absorbent capacity and it swell to a larger degree. 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.

Superabsorbent Polymers Market

On the basis of product segments the superabsorbent polymers market can be classified as sodium polyacrylate, polyacrylamide copolymer and others. Sodium polyacrylate dominated the global SAP market with over 60% share in 2014. However, polyacrylamide copolymer segment is expected to exhibit slightly fastest CAGR during the forecast period. 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.

North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa are the key regional segments of the global superabsorbent polymers market. Global superabsorbent polymers market was dominated by the North America with around 28% share of the market in 2014. North America was followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. North America and Europe were the major markets for superabsorbent polymers market owing to high level of awareness among the people about personal hygiene. However, rapid growth in population as well as industrial surge in emerging economies is expected to boost demand for SAP in the Asia Pacific region.
