Super absorbent resin (SAP) is the key raw material with which to produce disposable hygiene products like baby diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products. SAP has super water absorbing capacity. At present, the global paper diaper market is experiencing rapid development, with an AAGR of over 15%. In 2015, the global SAP consumption increased by 8.0% year on year to 2.3 million tons. It is expected that in 2016~2020 the consumption would grow at a compound annual rate of some 7.8%, to an estimated 3.48 million tons by 2020.

At the end of 2015, the global SAP capacity reached 3.489 million tons per year, up 12.0% from a year earlier. And China contributed the largest portion of the global capacity, at 30.5% of the total.

China's SAP has developed at an astonishing paceover the past two years, with 2015’s consumption rising 21.3% to 382 kilotons. However, with the introduction of Two-child Policy, and particularly driven by the rapid development of disposable hygiene products market, the SAP consumption in China is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 20% in 2016-2020, to 1.02 million tons by 2020.

Competitive Landscape of SAP:
Form the corporate perspective, the global SAP market is monopolized by Japanese and German manufacturers. In 2015, the top five global producers—Evonik, Nippon Shokubai, BASF, Sumitomo Seika Chemicals, and SDP Global accounted for an aggregate of 70.1% of the global total capacity.

At present, there are more than 20 SAP producers in China, which are mainly wholly foreign-owned companies or joint ventures. In 2015, Yixing Danson Technology, San-Dia Polymers (Nantong), Formosa Industries (Ningbo), BASF-YPC Company Limited, and Nisshoku Chemical Industry (Zhangjiagang) occupied a combined 63.0% of the total capacity in China.

Prices of SAP:
In 2013-2016, affected by economic slowdown, rapid growth of SAP capacity, and overcapacity of upstream raw materials, the average prices for SAP declined year by year, to RMB15,500/ton at the end of 2013. But the price dropped to RMB9,150/ton through 2015. In 2016, the price fluctuated at around RMB9,000. The quoted prices of major producers stood at about RMB10,000, but the actual prices were still highly flexible.

The prices for overseas SAP products have also showed downward trend. This has been particularly true in the past two years, with the prices for Japanese SAP products falling from RMB16,000/ton in 2014 to RMB12,000/ton in 2016. Nevertheless, the Chinese SAP products have a certain gap in price with foreign products, which is mainly related to the fact that the Chinese SAP products have a certain gap in technology and quality with foreign products.
