Baby diapers refer to a type of underwear, worn by babies and children, to allow the user to urinate or defecate without the need for going to the toilet. Diapers are designed to absorb the waste products so as to prevent staining/soiling of the external clothing. Baby diapers are typically made using cloth or synthetic disposable material. These can be broadly classified into cloth diapers, disposable diapers, training nappies and swim pants. Amongst these, cloth diapers and disposable diapers are the most popular products used worldwide. Cloth diapers are typically made through layers of fabric such as cotton, hemp or microfibers; and can be washed multiple times for reuse as the material used is natural fabric. On the contrary, disposable baby diapers comprise absorbent materials and need to be discarded after single use.

Although the overall birth rate has witnessed significant slowdown since the past few years, the steady growth is anticipated in the coming years.
