Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “In recent years, market vendors have been focusing on manufacturing products based on reverse engineering, which will allow for the manufacture of diapers without fluff pulp. These diapers will be an alternative to the DryMax Technology developed by P&G (Pampers); the fluff pulp in Pampers distributes liquid over the area of the diaper, thus preventing leakage and the feeling of wetness to the wearer. The fluff-less diaper, on the other hand, has a core made of two merged layers of superabsorbent polymers. This technology was invented by Drylock Technologies, a leading vendor in the global baby diaper market, and it is likely to generate significant revenue for the market during the forecast period.”
According to the report, along with the increase in the population of working women, parenting and childcare needs have also changed. Most diapers have high absorption property, which reduces the risk of soiling clothes and enhances convenience for parents such as during travel. These diapers have been gaining preference over traditional cloth diapers, which require frequent washing and does not provide the convenience of easy disposal. In addition, diapers reduce discomfort and the chances of developing rashes caused by continuous wetness. They are also formulated to prevent the breeding of germs, including bacteria and fungi.
Further, the report states that decline in birth rates in developed countries has directly affected the sales and revenues of diaper manufacturers.
