The global adult diapers market size was USD 12.62 billion in 2018. It is likely to progress at a CAGR of 12.7% during the forecast period. Adult diapers can be categorized under incontinence care products, which are largely worn by individuals suffering from severe incontinence, diarrhea, mobility impairment, or dementia, among other conditions. Growing geriatric population, increased affordability of diapers, rising urbanization, and increasing awareness towards improving hygiene conditions are among the primary growth stimulants for the market.
Furthermore, such incontinence care products are increasingly being used in medical centers, particularly for patients suffering from acute illnesses, as these diapers aid in preventing leakage, maintaining body fluid levels, and providing comfort. Apart from medical use, there has been a marked increase in adoption of these diapers for other purposes, such as by divers during deep-sea diving, pilots while they are on long flights, and workers at their manufacturing sites. Thus, the aforementioned uses of adult diapers for medical and non-medical purposes are poised to bolster their sales worldwide.
Advancements in technology have resulted in a significant rise in the adoption of disposable adult diapers by geriatric population. These diapers offer an innovative way to effectively manage problem of incontinence as they are made using a gel-like polymer bead core that increases their absorbency capacity, which in turn provides better comfort and protection to consumers. Thus, an increased demand for disposable diapers owing to their enhanced retention and fluid absorption capabilities is projected to boost market growth over the forecast period.
In spite of these favorable trends, factors such as lack of awareness and social stigmas associated with incontinence, particularly in underdeveloped countries are anticipated to impede the growth of the market. However, governments in collaboration with major adult diapers manufacturers, are undertaking initiatives aimed at eliminating such social stigmas, which in turn are estimated to provide significant growth opportunities for the market, in underdeveloped regions as well.
