According to the latest report by IMARC Group “Super Absorbent Polymers Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027“, The global super absorbent polymers (SAP) market size reached US$ 8.6 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 15.6 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.7% during 2022-2027.
Super absorbent polymers (SAPs) are made from acrylic acid cross-linked polymer networks constituted by water-soluble building blocks. They are white sugar-like hygroscopic substances that can hold a considerable amount of liquid to form transparent gel-based particles and retain moisture under pressure without rupturing and conflagrating. They help in keeping the skin dry, protecting against skin irritation, preventing the risk of developing infections, and supporting improved quality of life and personal dignity. They are commonly available in sodium polyacrylate and polyacrylamide copolymer forms. Amongst these, sodium polyacrylate is used as an emulsion stabilizer, hair fixative, film former, skin conditioner, and viscosity agent. On the other hand, polyacrylamide copolymer is utilized for sludge dewatering in municipal wastewater treatment, facilitates erosion control, and decreases soil sealing by binding soil particles to hold them on site.
