Drivers and Restraints
Preference for Sustainable Nappies to Drive Product Expansion
Increasing preference for sustainable nappies made from natural materials such as natural cotton, bamboo, hemp, microfiber, and others is anticipated to drive the cloth diaper market growth. Increasing popularity for using biodegradable and compostable material-based adult briefs to avoid skin irritation while using disposable products among aged population is accelerating the market growth. Rising demand for higher absorption property-based cotton briefs and boxers for treating incontinence problems is set to favor the product demand.
However, regular unorganized provision by the industry players for nappy products with their competitive pricing is projected to obstruct market growth.
Babies Segment to Lead due to Increasing Spending on Childcare Products
On the basis of end-user, the market is divided into adults and babies. Babies segment is anticipated to dominate due to major parental population’s spending on childcare products. Babies segment is further segmented into economic and premium. Between the two, economic segment is being driven by middle-income households preferring cost-effective flat and pre-fold nappies for their babies. Premium segment is driven by consumer preference for skin-friendly and comfortable high-end pocket, fitted, and all-in-one nappies. Adults segment is driven by surge in number of working women populace and spending on premium-quality cotton briefs.
Offline Channel to Lead the Segment due to Easy Availability of Hygiene Products
Based on distribution channel, the market is divided into online and offline. Offline segment is expected to have a major part due to regular discounted prices on baby care products by convenience stores and supermarkets to increase product demand and favor offline segmental revenues. Offline segment includes various distribution channels such as pharmacy stores, hypermarkets & supermarkets, and convenience stores.
Geographically, the market is segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.

According to World Bank Group, in 2021, nearly 29% of the Japanese population was aged 65 years and above compared to 28% in 2019.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were 9.5 million single-person households in the U.S., and single-mother households made up more than 80% of such households in the country in 2020.
The Europe market is set to have significant growth due to governmental and water supply management agencies focusing on introducing reusable diaper-related awareness campaigns to reduce waste generation due to disposable nappies and wipes.
