For new parents, the most important consideration is baby hygiene. Additionally, the diaper industry is crucial to maintaining the baby's hygiene. Because new-borns urinate regularly, changing underwear frequently is a laborious chore. Additionally, when not changed promptly, regular underwear can irritate the skin and create rashes.

A prolonged wetness could also result in coldness. Therefore, diapers offer a practical answer to these issues. In addition to eliminating the need for frequent diaper changes, diapers offer comfort to the infant, avoiding itching and skin rashes.

In developing countries, there are more infants than ever before. The market for diapers is expanding as a result of the growing population. However, the majority of people in developing nations could not afford the exact new-born diaper count required. Accordingly, a number of non-profit organisations are attempting to make diapers accessible to the underprivileged population at reasonable costs.

Diapers for adults are sold in the market in addition to those for babies. These adult diapers are designed for people suffering from bladder problems. In the case of middle-aged women, bladder incontinence may result from childbearing or ageing in the elderly. However, the adult diaper business only makes up a small portion of the overall diaper market.

Diapers have chemical compounds and synthetic substances that absorb liquids and form into solid gel. These chemical compounds can be harmful for babies; as scientific studies have found many of them to be related to skin problems in babies, minor dermatitis, carcinogenic substances and other possible negative effects on health. Chemical compounds as phthalates are commonly used for making diapers, which can affect endocrine system and hypertension.

The increasing number of diaper users in different region is being another problem for their disposal. Diapers are single use product, once they are used, they have to be thrown away. Usually, they are disposed in landfills, as they cannot be recycled. The remnant of the disposed waste is mainly chemicals which are not good for environment and can cause serious problems in future. Environment conscious people are restricting the use of diapers and are spreading awareness about the adverse effects of diapers. These factors are having a negative impact on the diaper market.
