Baby Diaper Market Anticipated to Grow at a Significant Pace by 2031

The baby diaper market is set to grow, especially as manufacturers increasingly focus on innovations to offer greater customer satisfaction. According to a study by Future Market Insights (FMI), some of the leading manufacturers are focusing on ensuring bio-degradability in order to ensure products are recyclable. Driven by these developments, the market is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 63.67 Bn by 2021.

Unlike bio-degradable diapers, regular diapers don’t degrade well in a landfill. Also, disposable diapers require around several years to disintegrate. The tremendous amount of untreated waste added to the landfills consistently through plastic diapers can contaminate the groundwater. Coupled with this, rising climate concerns represents a key factor propelling the demand for bio-degradable diapers.

Disposable diapers comprise many synthetic compounds that can adversely affect wellbeing. These includes sodium polyacrylate, dioxins, tributyl-tin, dyes, volatile organic compounds, and other chemicals. These synthetic substances may cause tingling and different medical issues such as respiratory problems, cancer, hormone interferences, and several other health problems to an infant.

With consumers increasingly focusing on eco-friendly buys, the demand for biodegradable or reusable baby diapers is expected to surge. In addition, cost-effective pricing of products, presence of a relatively untapped market for bio-degradable baby diapers in underdeveloped and developing countries, and rapid urbanization are other factors expected to propel bio-degradable baby diapers sales over the forecast period.

Thus, increasing awareness on negative impact of these chemicals and baby hygiene among individuals shifting the consumer preference towards bio-degradable diapers. Subsequently, organizations are investing in R&D to ensure impact of products on the climate is zero to minimal. According to FMI, despite the dominance of disposable diapers, the reusable baby diapers sales will rise at 5.1% CAGR between 2021 and 2031.
