These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor

An adult diaper, also known as adult nappy, is a type of underwear worn by adults so as to urinate or defecate without using a toilet. It absorbs or contains the waste and prevents soiling of the outer clothing. The inner lining that touches the skin is generally made of polypropylene, whereas the outer lining is made of polyethylene. Some manufacturers enhance the quality of the inner lining with vitamin E, aloe vera and other skin-friendly compounds. These diapers can be indispensable for adults with conditions like mobility impairment, incontinence or severe diarrhea

As a result of the growing prevalence of urinary incontinence amongst the geriatric population, the demand for adult diapers has increased, particularly for products with improved fluid absorption and retention capacities

The rising hygiene consciousness among the consumers has created a positive impact on the demand for adult diapers. The market is also experiencing a high growth in the developing regions on account of increasing awareness and easy product availability

Due to technological advancements, multiple adult diaper variants have been introduced in the market which are thinner and more comfortable with enhanced skin friendliness and odor control. This is expected to create a positive impact on the growth of the global adult diaper industry

The use of harmful chemicals in diapers can cause the skin to become red, sore, tender and irritated. This represents one of the major factors which can restrain the market growth across the globe
