Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around X% during 2023-2028, reaching a value of US$ XX Billion by 2028. Diapers are disposable garments worn as underpants to absorb or hold body waste. They are manufactured using various highly absorbent raw materials, such as cellulose, polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polymers, tissue paper, and nonwoven fabrics. A diaper is widely used by infants, toddlers, and adults with urinary incontinence, diarrhea, and mobility impairment. It is lightweight, compact, soft, and easy-to-use that enhances comfort, prevents leaks, and provides high absorbency and elasticity. A diaper also improves sanitation, prevents bad odor, reduces irritation, increases confidence, and minimizes sores and rashes.  

The rising consumer awareness regarding personal hygiene, coupled with the increasing literacy rate, is one of the primary factors driving the market growth in the region. The inflating sales of diapers can also be attributed to the rising geriatric population and the escalating demand for effective fluid-absorbing disposable garments, especially among new parents. In line with this, they are widely adopted as they improve cleanliness, protect clothes, keep skin healthy, minimize rashes, promote uninterrupted sleep, and prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other germs. Additionally, the growing consumer awareness regarding various product benefits, such as affordability, timesaving, convenience, and reusability, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the advent of thinner and more comfortable diapers with skin-friendly elements and non-woven fabrics to mitigate rashes while ensuring a high absorption rate and better odor control is aiding the market growth. Apart from this, the rising environmental concerns have prompted manufacturers to introduce sustainable diapers free from alcohol, plastic, latex, and chlorine and made using biodegradable materials, such as cotton and bamboo, which is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, increasing initiatives and campaigns by regional governments to promote maternal and child health is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of consumers, easy product availability across e-commerce platforms, and aggressive promotional campaign by manufacturers through social media and advertisements, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
