Absorbent Products on the Rise

Incontinence products are becoming much more mainstream these days. As the baby boomers are aging, it is expected that usage will increase about 50% over the next years. Past events sparked the need for disposable undergarments. Due to the shortage of supplies needed to make these types of underwear, disposable products emerged in the marketplace. Fast forward to the present day, the American senior citizen you see walking down the street may be using these products and you would never know.
