Adult Diapers Taking Over Baby Market in One Country

Diapers, diapers, diapers. . . When you have a baby you just can’t have enough of the things. You are constantly adding them to any grocery list because you can never have too many diapers when you are raising a baby.

But did you know that in Japan, adult diapers are on the verge of outselling baby ones?

Japan‘s aging population, which has the highest percentage of over-65s in the world, makes up more than 20% of the country’s population. The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) announced the latest data on Japan’s
population back in March, and the number of people aged 65 and over has exceeded 30,000,000 for the first time
since record keeping began in 1950.
Furthermore, those aged 65 and over exceeded the number of those aged 14 and below in every region across the country. And in direct correlation with the rapid increase of the
elderly in Japan, the adult diaper market is growing at 6-10% a year ‑ and already pulls in 140 billion yen (which is $1.4 billion).
