Challenges - Super Absorbent Market

  • Environmental Regulations That Are Strict Regarding Recycling Waste:

Sodium polyacrylate (Na-PA) is a very absorbent polymer that is widely utilized in a variety of hygiene products. The polymer is currently made using fossil fuels, which has negative environmental consequences.

When superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are discharged into soil or water, they are non-biodegradable and can harm plants, animals, and humans. They can hinder water from reaching plant roots or natural water sources, affecting ecosystems and water supply.

Many countries are also implementing environmental controls on ultra-absorbent polymers. For example, in Europe, starting on October 17, 2023, the Commission Regulation (EU) 2023/2055, also known as the "microplastics restriction," forbids the use of synthetic polymer microparticles on their own or when purposefully added to mixes. The Commission is working on a detailed Q&A paper to aid with the implementation of the new rules. By the end of 2023, the document should be available on this page. The goal is not to restrict all glitter but to substitute more environmentally friendly glitter that will not pollute waters.

  • The Global Superabsorbent Polymers Market Is Expected To Be Hampered By Raw Material Price Volatility:

Acrylic acid is the most common raw ingredient utilized in the production of super-absorbent polymers. Acrylic acid prices have been variable due to swings in crude oil prices as well as a lack of supply in the Asian market. Acrylic acid prices will be influenced by the gradual recovery of crude oil prices. China is the world's leading producer of acrylic acid. As a result of environmental constraints in China, acrylic acid manufacturing plants are operating at reduced rates, closing the supply-demand imbalance.

This has also affected the cost of ultra-absorbent polymers. In recent years, manufacturers such as Nippon Shokubai and Evonik have announced price increases for their extremely absorbent polymers. However, the impact is projected to be mitigated as new capacity is added, stabilizing prices in the coming years.

As a result, throughout the middle of the quarter, Acrylic Acid prices in India and China hovered around USD 1317/MT and USD 1310/MT, respectively. Acrylic acid prices in Europe remained high during the third quarter, boosted by strong demand and insufficient supply across the continent.
