A diaper is made of quick-absorbing materials and allows the wearer to excrete without the use of a toilet. It contains leakage protective materials which absorb the waste and prevent it from leaking and soiling the outer clothes. Diapers are worn by babies, adults with urinal incontinence, astronauts, divers and people on long duties. The increasing population and growing prevalence of urinary incontinence and other health problems have primarily driven the demand for diapers. In addition, increasing awareness among consumers about personal hygiene, growing women workforce and inflating income levels have further augmented the growth of the market.

Owing to the increasing demand for diapers, manufacturers have developed thinner diapers using core absorbent technology, which has further increased their sales. Technological advancements have also enabled manufacturers to introduce more absorbent and skin-friendly diapers. However, the primary factor that is currently restraining the growth of the global diaper market is the environmental concerns associated with improper disposal of diapers and their non-biodegradable nature. In order to combat this problem, manufacturers are developing biodegradable diapers which are environmentally more sustainable. These biodegradable variants are expected to drive the diaper market in the coming years.
