Information at a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Diapers are hygiene absorbent products engineered to absorb and contain urine and faeces of a baby. When used they are set and fastened around its legs and bottom.
  • There are three types of diapers: reusable, biodegradable or otherwise recyclable, and disposable.
  • An average diaper weighs between 45 and 50 g and is primarily made of pulp (fluff pulp), polypropylene, polyethylene, super absorbent polymer (SAP), as well as minor amounts of tapes, elastics and adhesive materials.
  • Nowadays, SAP is used in the diaper core to help hold urine away from the skin and faecal enzymes. This helps prevent the conditions that lead to diaper rash.
  • The health benefits of modern diapers based on SAP and other advanced technologies provide advantages in skin care, dryness, and leakage protection.
  • There are several methods used to control the quality of disposable diapers, and most of these relate to the product's absorbency.
  • In the diaper product development area, each major component is tested separately to assess safety under conditions that are appropriate to the potential exposures consumers will have to the products.
  • Approximately 75% of the superabsorbent polymers used worldwide are sold in diaper products from five major companies. These manufactures include Proctor & Gamble (P&G), Kimberly-Clark, and other diaper manufacturers such as Paragon Trade Brands, Molnycke, and Unicharm.
  • The global market for disposable diapers is $20 billion annually, but manufacturers face a twofold challenge.
  • Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs), materials comprising long chains of intertwining molecules with the happy ability to soak up lots of liquid, now dominate the disposable diaper market.
  • Pant diapers, which today account for 14% in terms of value of the European diaper market, are growing at a faster rate than open diapers with annual growth of approximately 8%.
  • Growth for baby diapers is considerably higher in other parts of the world, particularly in Asia but also in Latin America and Africa.
  • In Europe, approximately 25% of the market for baby diapers consists of retailers’ brands.
  • In the United States, Proctor & Gamble is a well-known diaper manufacturer, which produces the popular Pampers diaper. The superabsorbent polymer used in the Pampers diaper holds approximately thirty times its own weight in body fluid.
  • The P&G Corporation developed a unique three-piece construction diaper to absorb the moisture and distribute it evenly. The transmission of fluid to the absorbent core allows the fluid to be engulfed, therefore not passing it back to the skin. P&G diapers are now sold in more than 80 countries worldwide with $4 billion in sales.
