Super Absorbent Polymers Market to Attain US$ 9.7 Billion at 4.9% CAGR by 2032: Fact.MR Analysis

The increasing demand for superabsorbent polymers for water retention in the soil is the main driver shaping the super absorbent polymers industry growth

Rockville, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per Fact.MR, a provider of market research and competitive intelligence, the global Super Absorbent Polymers Market is likely to reach a value of US $9.7 Bn by the end of 2032 while rising at a CAGR of 4.9%.

Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are advanced hydrogels known for their exceptional water-absorbing capabilities, absorbing and retaining large amounts of water relative to their weight. They outperform alternatives in various applications; for instance, in hygiene products like diapers, SAPs provide superior moisture absorption, ensuring a drier and more comfortable experience. In agriculture, these polymers enhance soil water retention, reducing the need for frequent irrigation and promoting water conservation, especially beneficial in arid regions.
