A diaper is a type of underwear that allows the wearer to urinate or defecate without the use of a toilet. It absorbs or contains the waste and prevents soiling of the external clothing or environment. Diapers are primarily worn by infants, toddlers and children who are not toilet trained or who experience bedwetting. They are also used by adults with incontinence problems or in circumstances where a toilet is unavailable. In India, diapers were introduced during the late 20th century.
Rapidly expanding infant population and increasing participation of women in the workforce have been the major growth-inducing factors for the diaper market in the region.

Drivers of Diaper Market in India
Demand for diapers is growing steadily across India on account of their benefits such as convenience, increased hygiene and low risk of skin damage. Moreover, increasing awareness of personal hygiene, changing lifestyle and a continuous rise in the purchasing power of the consumers in India have created a shift from traditional cloth nappies to diapers.
Obesity, urinary tract infection, functional/cognitive impairment, chronic coughs, and constipation are some of the main causes of incontinence observed in both men and women. With the growing aging population, high prevalence of urinary incontinence has been witnessed which has subsequently led to an increase in the use of adult diapers.
Some brands are enhancing their product offerings so as to attract a larger consumer-base. For instance, manufacturers are introducing diapers with an inner lining containing aloe vera gel, vitamin E, and other skin-friendly compounds often found in diaper rash creams to avoid rashes on the skin.
