Disposable undergarments are known to cause environmental pollution because they are made from non-biodegradable materials. Materials such as plastic, elastics, and superabsorbent polymers such as polypropylene take longer duration to break down or degrade chemically, remain stagnant in landfills, and pollute the soil present in and around the landfills. The market is likely to witness increased sales in the coming years; however, sourcing of adequate raw materials for continuous production of disposable undergarments is a critical issue. Several raw materials used in the production process may be in short supply, which will negatively impact the production process of manufacturers, thus creating a demand-supply gap in the market. Despite the shortage, vendors are sourcing raw materials at higher prices to meet with increasing demand for disposable undergarments. Subsequently, high costs and shortage of raw materials will curb the profit margin of vendors over a period in the market.
