Super Absorbent Polymer, defined SAP crystals, sometimes called Super Absorbent Polymer balls, water absorbing crystals or slush powder, have numerous practical applications. These Super Absorbent Polymers typically are cross-linked acrylic homo-polymers (usually Sodium neutralized). Diapers and hygiene product manufacturers use Super Absorbent Polymers as the solidification medium in the products.
In agriculture they are used to increase the water absorption and water retention in soils located in regions subject to drought. Hospitals utilize them to solidify and dispose-off bio-hazardous waste in suction canisters. Energy companies utilize them to solidify the liquid waste byproducts of oil and gas drilling, and mining. And, wherever industry has a need to solidify liquid waste streams-whether for manufacturing, maintenance, or for environmental cleanup-one will find Super Absorbent Polymer at work.
The global market by product type and application type, has witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to persist in the coming years. The primary Super Absorbent Polymer product is sodium polyacrylate that constitute majority of the market globally. Acrylic Acid is the main consumed raw material for the Super Absorbent Polymers products.
North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific dominated the Super Absorbent Polymers market in 2013 and accounted for over 75% of the market. The developed regions dominate the SAP market due their mature markets which consist of hygiene conscious and high-spending population. On the other hand, Middle East, Africa is expected to witness the fastest growth rate by 2019. The market in this region is experiencing increased in baby diaper penetration rate, high disposable incomes, and population pyramids.
With the market participants' growing interest in Super Absorbent Polymer market; it is expected that the global Super Absorbent Polymers market will register strong growth in the near future with expansions and new investments for SAP plants. Largely the global market is fragmented in nature with leading participants being BASF SE, Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd., Evonik Industries AG, SDP Global Co. Ltd., LG Chem Ltd., Sumitomo Seika Chemicals Co. Ltd., and Formosa Plastics Co.
