About Adult Diaper

An adult diaper is a disposable diaper that consists of an absorbent pad sandwiched between two non-woven fabric sheets. The sheets are designed to prevent the leakage, improve comfort, and retain the body fluid. Manufacturing of adult diaper is a multi-step process: the absorbent pad is vacuum formed, attached with elastic fibers to bring proper shape, so that it fits around leg and crotch. Modern adult diapers and other incontinence products have brought a significant contribution and have changed the quality of life of millions of people. Pervasive in the acceptance and availability of adult diapers has provided better convenience, comfort, and skin care benefits for people affected by urinary incontinence. The introduction of modern adult diapers has improved steadily over decades through scientific advances.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Adult Diapers market to grow at a CAGR of 8.64 percent over the period 2014-2019.

This kind of diaper has an absorbent lining with elastic bands around waist and legs to prevent leakage. Exclusive designs for men and women are also available. However, unisex models of pants-type adult diapers are gaining popularity as they are suitable for advanced odor protection and easy disposal.

Innovative adult diapers have high esthetic appeal and reduced product weight and are developed using less material without compromising on performance and comfort.”
