Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Adult Diapers Market in the Middle East and Africa 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the adult diapers market in the Middle East and Africa: Kimberly-Clark, P&G, SCA, and Unicharm

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Abdullah Shamsan, Cura Hygiene Group, DSG International, Faderco, First Quality Enterprises, Hayat Kimya Sanayi, INDEVCO, Kao, Lodestone Brands, Medtronic, Nippon Paper Industries, Novatis, Ontex International, and Wemy Industries.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors are focusing on reverse engineering to manufacture diapers without fluff pulp which is gaining popularity. These diapers are more comfortable to wear and are environmentally-friendly as they eliminate the cutting down of trees for fluff pulp. The core of these diapers is made of a superabsorbent polymer between two layers, and this design allows improved liquid retention.”

According to the report, the rapid increase in older population in MEA will drive growth in the adult diaper market. The improvement in the healthcare infrastructure and treatment options in MEA has resulted in a rise in life expectancy. This has led to an increase in the older population. Urinary incontinence is more prevalent among older people, and an increase in the older population will lead to higher demand for adult diapers. One out of ten women is estimated to develop urinary incontinence in old age.

Further, the report states that the growth of the global diaper market is largely driven by the adult diaper market as the older population is growing at a fast rate. Urinary incontinence is a significant health problem with considerable social and economic impact. Most of the population aged above 60 years suffers from diseases like diabetes, dementia, and paralysis. The stigma around incontinence makes it difficult for both patients and caregivers to discuss these issues openly.
