The COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the global baby diapers market. On the one hand, the lockdowns and movement restrictions implemented in many countries led to a temporary decline in the demand for baby diapers, as people were confined to their homes and had less need for disposable diapers. On the other hand, the pandemic also led to an increase in the demand for baby diapers in some areas, as people stockpiled essential items such as diapers in anticipation of potential supply chain disruptions. Overall, the impact of the pandemic on the baby diapers market was limited, and the market is expected to recover and continue growing in the coming years.
