December 03, 2014

Wellesley, Mass., December 01, 2014 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report, Absorbent and Adsorbent Materials: Global Markets, the demand for comfort and hygiene products in emerging economies is driving strong expansion in the market, with growth of $11.1 billion expected in 2019. Additionally, the rapidly advancing emerging economies, which are mainly China and India in terms of both economy and population, have significantly increased the demand for sorbents over the past five years.

 With an increasing number of start-up and small companies in the Asia-Pacific region, outsourcing of sorbents is rising with new manufacturing facilities. The area is expected to grow at a five-year CAGR (2014 to 2019) of 7.5%, with sales of $4.1 billion by 2019. This will not be the case with the North American and European markets that are predicted to advance at lower rates of 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period.

 “China accounts for about 20% of the overall diaper market in terms of volume growth,” says BCC Research analyst Aneesh Kumar. “Moreover, the seven emerging markets (China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brazil, Turkey and Egypt) combined are anticipated to account for more than 60% of the surge of the global market for baby diapers and pants in terms of volume.”
