Report ID: 131413 3300 Chemical & Material 377 233 Pages 4.8 (48)

Market Overview:

The global medical superabsorbent polymer market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for absorbent products in various applications such as air laid, spun bond, and meltdown. In addition, the growing awareness about hygiene and rising incidences of urinary tract infections are also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, woven superabsorbent polymers are expected to account for a larger share than non-woven superabsorbent polymers during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their superior absorption capacity as compared with non-woven counterparts.

Global Medical Superabsorbent Polymer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A medical superabsorbent polymer is a type of polymer that has been specifically designed for use in absorbent medical devices such as diapers, incontinence pads, and feminine hygiene products. These polymers can absorb many times their own weight in liquid, making them ideal for use in products that need to quickly and effectively soak up moisture. Their high absorbency also makes them helpful in managing wound drainage.


Superabsorbent polymers are the composite material which is prepared by the fusion of polymer with a high proportion of hydrophilic groups. The common property possessed by these materials is that they absorb a large amount of water before they can be absorbed by the body tissues.


Non-woven is a category of absorbent material that consists of fibers or filaments that are held together by an interlaced network. The most common examples are found in the form of fabrics such as cotton, jute, and hemp which have been processed to make them suitable for use as medical superabsorbent polymers (SAP). Non-wovens find their application in various end-use industries including healthcare, personal care & cosmetics among others.

Application Insights:

Air laid medical sponges are majorly used for wound care, airway management and ventilation. Air laid products have the ability to absorb large amounts of fluid which helps in reducing the rate of fluid loss. These products are available in various forms such as flat sheets, rolls and gauze pads. The demand for these products is expected to increase owing to their use in emergency department (ED) procedures along with other applications such as burns treatment, surgery and trauma care centers.

Spun bond medical sponges are made from polyurethane foam that is covered with a layer of soft tissue paper followed by a layer of absorbent polymer material called hydroxyapatite or calcium carbonate depending upon the color required by the manufacturer.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. North America has a well-established healthcare industry, which is one of the major end users of these products. Moreover, high disposable income and improved lifestyle are some other factors contributing to product demand in this region.

Asia Pacific medical superabsorbent polymer (MP) market is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period owing to increasing awareness regarding various disorders and their treatment options along with rising healthcare expenditure by governments as well as individuals in this region.

The European regional market also held a significant share of global revenue due to presence of developed economies such as Germany, U K., Italy etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for medical absorbent products from the healthcare sector
  • Rising awareness about hygiene and sanitation among people across the globe
  • Technological advancements in absorbent polymer products
  • Growing number of surgical procedures requiring use of medical absorbents
  • Rising disposable income of consumers, which is resulting in increased spending on healthcare
