According to a recent market research report released by Transparency Market Research, the global diapers market is estimated to be worth US$63.2 billion by 2017. The report, titled “Diapers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth and Forecast 2011 - 2017”, cites growing geriatric population, decreasing infant mortality rates, and rising number of women workers as the key factors behind the growth of the global diapers market during the period between 2011 and 2017.Diapers are no longer associated only with babies. Medical conditions such as urinary incontinence among adult and elderly population has led to the extensive usage of diapers across hospitals, institutional healthcare, and home healthcare. This has propelled the growth of the global diapers market. Urbanization and increased income has further augmented the growth of the market. However, the report points out that declining birth rates in developed markets and declining men to women ratio will negatively impact the global diapers market. Environmental concerns will also play spoilsport in the growth of the market during the forecast horizon.
On the basis of product type, the report segments the global diapers market into disposable diapers, cloth diapers, swim pants, and training nappies. The report analyzes the cloth diapers market and assesses the demand for types of cloth diapers such as flat cloth, pre-fold cloth, fitted cloth, all-in one cloth, and others. Disposable diapers have been further segmented into super-absorbent diapers, regular diapers, ultra-absorbent diapers, and biodegradable diapers. In 2010, disposable diapers led the overall diapers market and are expected to continue their dominance during the forecast horizon. Convenience offered by disposable diapers, along with the recent incorporation of biodegradable diapers, will boost the global diapers market.
On the basis of age, the report categorizes the global diapers market into baby diapers and adult diapers. Baby diapers constitute the leading category in the market. However, during the forecast horizon, adult diapers market is expected to grow significantly due to the increasing healthcare standards all over the world. In the past, Latin America has accounted for the largest share in the global adult diapers market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
The report studies the global diapers market across four key regions: Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. The report states that Europe leads the overall diapers market, accounting for more than one-third of the market. Saturation in North American market has led to the decrease in demand for diapers. The report profiles some of the key players in the global diapers market such as Unicharm, Kimberley Clark, Kao Corporation, Procter & Gamble, SCA Hygiene Products, and Hengan. Through SWOT analysis, the report analyzes the growth of the key players during the forecast horizon.
