The global underpads market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.95% from 2017 to 2028 and reach USD 7,820 million by 2028. The growth in this market has been driven due to the increasing awareness among people about hygiene and cleanliness along with the rising incidence of incontinence cases across different regions globally. Disposable underpads are estimated to account for nearly 60% share of the total market during 2018-2028.

Underpads are thin pads that absorb fluids and protect the bed or chair from damage. They can be used to collect menstrual flow, incontinence of urine or fecal matter as well as post-surgery drainage. These disposable products come in a variety of sizes for adults and children who wear diapers or suffer chronic incontinence issues.

On the basis of type, the global underpads market is segmented into disposable and reusable.


Disposable underpads are thin pads that absorb fluids and protect the bed or chair from damage. They can be used to collect menstrual flow, incontinence of urine or fecal matter as well as post-surgery drainage. These disposable products come in a variety of sizes for adults and children who wear diapers or suffer from incontinence.


Reusable underpads are waterproof pads that can be worn as underwear or replace disposable products in normal use, such as menstrual hygiene and incontinence protection. These reusable items come in various designs and materials to suit different needs of people with disabilities, pregnant women, or those who have undergone surgery.

On the basis of application, the global underpads market is segmented into hospitals, nursing homes, daycare centers.

The hospital sector is a major application of underpads. Hospitals use them in beds, wheelchairs, and chairs to protect patients from moisture and prevent the spread of bacteria. Some underpads have been designed specifically for use at nursing homes because many people in this setting experience skin incontinence problems due to physical limitations (from arthritis) or decreased mobility from neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease. For daycare centers, underpads are used to protect the furniture or floor from accidents caused by children. They also provide comfort and security for both infants and adults who require diaper changing services on a regular basis.

On the basis of region, the global underpads market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. In the North American region, the U.S is a major market for underpads because of its aging population with incontinence problems which leads to high demand for this type of product. The European region also witnesses significant growth owing to the increasing aging population coupled with rising awareness about health issues like skincare and hygiene.

Asia pacific region will be the fastest-growing region due to the rapidly growing elderly population. The continent's healthcare sector comprising hospitals, nursing homes, and other facilities are facing challenges from a shortage of caregivers that will lead up the requirement for more pads as well as care services at home.

The Middle East & Africa markets have been witnessing rapid growth over the past few years on account of rising disposable income and increasing awareness about health.

Growth Factors

The global underpads market is primarily driven by the growing awareness about health and hygiene, increasing disposable income in developing countries, increase in the number of hospitals particularly with regards to private healthcare facilities. Growth in disposable underpad demand is being driven by increasing awareness on hygiene and sanitation practices among consumers as well as rising health concerns such as urinary tract infections (UTI) which have been reported worldwide.
