demand for products which are skin friendly, odour-free and offer
superior absorption is anticipated to further propel the market growth

rapid urbanisation, surging disposable incomes, rising cases of prostate

Moreover, the use of adult diapers by guards on long duties, divers
under their diving suits, pilots on long flights and other long-hour
workers is also bolstering the demand for adult diapers worldwide.
