Overview of the global baby diapers market 

The global baby diapers market owes its strong recent growth to increasing birth rates, rising average disposable income, and urbanization coupled with growing awareness pertaining to healthcare.

The growing population base together with increasing awareness regarding personal hygiene is another factor propelling the demand for baby diapers worldwide. On the other hand, the decline in birth rates in developed economies and the ability of these diapers to be reused are, to some extent, hindering the market’s growth prospects.

The disposable diaper segment is considered as the largest segment of the baby diapers market, holding around 66% of the overall baby diapers market. These diapers are gaining popularity as they are user-friendly and cost-efficient.

North America led the global baby diapers market previously but is expected to lose ground in the coming years. The baby diapers market in North America is facing near-total saturation and extreme competition, due to which manufacturers are finding it difficult to maintain the development in baby diapers industry in the region. The growth of the baby diapers market in Asia Pacific is expected to overtake the baby diapers market in North America.

The regional baby diapers markets in EMEA, i.e. Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, accounts for the biggest market share at 33%, followed by Asia Pacific, accounting for 30% of the global baby diapers market. The markets in Latin America and Asia Pacific are forecast to witness a rise and total US$16.6 billion by 2017. The baby diapers market in Asia Pacific will register the fastest growth among all regional markets, with a projected CAGR of 8.4% during the period of 2011 to 2017.

The global baby diapers industry was valued at US$35.6 billion in 2011. The market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 6.6% during the period of 2011 to 2017 to reach a market worth amounting to US$52.2 billion by 2017.
