·5-min read

DUBLIN, December 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Baby Diapers Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Growth and Change" report has been added to's offering.

The global baby diapers market is expected to grow from $47.48 billion in 2020 to $50.32 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6%. The market is expected to reach $65.50 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 6.8%.

The baby diapers market consists of sales of baby diapers by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that allow the babies to urinate or defecate without using a toilet. A baby diaper is a soft piece of high-quality material that is wrapped around the bottom of a baby which prevents spoiling of outer clothing or the external environment when the child defecates or urinates by absorbing them. Diapers need to be changed when they get stained to stop the harmful effects and infections caused by them.

The main types of baby diapers are cloth diapers, disposable diapers, and others. A cloth diaper, often known as a cloth nappy or a real nappy, is a reusable diaper consisting of natural fibers, synthetic materials, or a combination of the two. They're frequently manufactured of industrial cotton, which can be bleached white or kept natural.

The baby diaper is available in various sizes such as small and extra small (s and xs), medium (m), large (l), extra-large (xl) and is used for infants (0-6 months), babies, and young toddlers (6-18 months), toddlers (18-24 months), children above 2 years. These baby diapers are made available to customers through various distribution channels including hypermarkets or supermarkets, convenience stores, pharmacy or drug stores, online sales channels, and others.

North America was the largest region in the baby diapers market in 2020. The Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.

Companies in the baby diapers market are launching biodegradable diaper pants intending to protect the environment. Biodegradable diapers are made from biodegradable fibers such as cotton, bamboo, and starch. These diapers are made from natural elements and can break down naturally to turn into soil. Increasing environmental consciousness by parents is causing demand for biodegradable diapers.

To meet the demand of consumers, manufacturers have started developing eco-green diapers with raw materials that are less harmful to the environment. For example, in May 2021, Pampers launched its "Pampers Pure Protection Hybrid Diapers "which has benefits of both eco-friendly cloth diapers and disposable diapers. These are reusable cloth diapers with a disposable insert made with a plant-based liner.

In April 2020, Kimberly-Clark, a US-based company manufacturing personal care products including baby diapers announced the acquisition of Softex Indonesia for $1.2 billion. Through this acquisition, Kimberly-Clark expands its footprint into developing and emerging markets of Indonesia for the personal care products such as baby diapers, feminine care, and adult care. Softex Indonesia is an Indonesian company that manufactures baby diapers.

The rising working women population across the globe is expected to contribute to the growth of the baby diapers market in the forecast period. Disposable diapers are a convenient, safe, and time-saving option for a working woman as they can be discarded and need not be cleaned for reuse. This helps working women to avoid the regular disturbance caused when the child defecates or urinate. Thus, an increase in the working women population is expected to drive the demand for baby diapers contributing to the growth of the market.
