The global baby diaper market has huge potential, according to Euromonitor data, the global baby diaper market was valued at USD 43.38 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow moderately over the next five years, with CAGR of 3.5% until 2024. It is expected to reach $51.53 billion annually. The fastest growing regional markets are currently concentrated in Asia and Africa. The two most populous countries in the world (China and India) will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.4% and 14.8% by 2024. Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam are expected to be the fastest growing baby diaper markets in Southeast Asia, with CAGRs of 11.8%, 5.9% and 8.4% respectively over the period. In Africa, Kenya and Nigeria are expected to experience the fastest growth over the next five years, with CAGRs of 2.9% and 13.3%.
Eco friendly disposable diapers have many characteristics, such as easy use, leakage-proof, anti-penetration etc., and have become an indispensable daily necessities for babies. The emergence of disposable diapers has brought great convenience to people's lives, but with the rapid increase in the amount of diapers and the difficulty of degrading diapers, environmental problems have become increasingly prominent. Since the disposable diapers that are currently used are mainly disposed of by burying and incineration, 30% of the plastic components in the buried diapers are difficult to completely degraded.
Traditional disposable diapers have high energy consumption in the production process, and are also accompanied by the production of certain carcinogens. If they are not properly disposed of after use, they will cause secondary pollution to the atmosphere, soil and water. To solve the problem of environmental pollution in the production process and disposal of diapers, it is necessary to find new production raw materials, or to improve the post-processing technology, or to completely change the concept of consumption.
Up to now, although various technologies have been gradually developed for the production of diaper degradable materials, including corn fiber diapers, degradable SAP materials, new water-absorbing materials, etc., because diapers are fast-moving consumer goods in household consumption, these technologies are used. The cost of the diapers made will naturally be higher than the current price, and the promotion is more difficult, so many companies have begun to focus on the post-processing methods of diapers.
Example: Japan sets recycling guidelines to reduce adult diaper waste
With the rapid increase in the number of diapers used by Japan's aging population, how to deal with diaper waste has also become a serious problem. Previously, the Japanese environmental protection department distributed a recycling guide for disposable adult diapers to the municipal government to reduce the increasing amount of diaper waste.
Between 2007 and 2017, the waste generated from disposable adult diapers soared from 840,000 tons to 1.4 million tons, according to a Japanese group advocating diaper recycling. In some rural areas, adult diaper waste already accounts for 20% to 30% of the total waste. To solve this problem, Japan's environmental protection agency has distributed guidelines for the recycling of disposable adult diapers to municipal governments to reduce the growing amount of diaper waste. This guide will cover some of the latest technologies, including how to turn diaper waste into fuel. And some recycling companies will also extract the pulp in diapers and convert them into building materials.
