According to a new report published by Allied Market Research titled, "Global Adult Diapers Market by Product Type and Distribution Channel: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019–2026," the global adult diapers market size was valued at $13.3 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $24.1 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2019 to 2026.

The global adult diapers industry is majorly driven by the increase in number of aging population and rise in rate of urbanization. Adult diapers are designed for people suffering from severe conditions such as incontinence, mobility impairment, diarrhea, and others. 

The rise in number of incontinence customers has opened up immense opportunities for key adult diaper manufacturers to innovate its product offerings in terms of its absorbency level, odor control, comfortability, and skin friendliness. For instance, Kimberly-Clark, one of the key players in the global adult diapers market, has come up with a range of products targeting the women segment for light to moderate bladder leakage. This includes pad-free options like Impressa Bladder Supports to pads and liners. Similarly, Procter & Gamble launched a line of comfortable, feminine and fashionable bladder leak underwear for women.

During the adult diapers market forecast period, the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to expand into incontinence care to provide digitally enabled decision support tools as well as other care recommendation. For instance, Simavita, a technology oriented company, has come up with wearable adult diapers under the brand name of SMARTZ. The product helps in delivering a host of wellness and wellbeing indicators including wetness, ambient temperature, pressure sore management, falls, and other such features and information. It also incorporates sensors to determine movement, temperature, and additional data to provide wellness data and trigger warning (pressure sore risks and falls). Thus, digitization in adult diapers segment is turning out to be an influential adult diapers market trend.
