Rapid self-healing gel market is expected to grow USD 414.7 Million at a CAGR 8.42% during the forecast period 2022-2030.
The global Rapid Self-healing Gel market is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2022–2030. In 2021, the global market was valued at USD 205.29 Million. This number is expected to reach USD 414.7 Million, with a CAGR of 8.42% by the end of 2030. The Increasing demand for tissue engineering primarily drives the global Rapid Self-healing Gel market.
Rapid self-healing gel is a type of polymer hydrogel that is a cross-network of polymers linked to each other via physical or chemical interactions such as hydrogen bonding, ionic interactions, and others between the unit polymers. Because of their extremely high hydrating ability, these gels have elasticity, sensitivity, and permeability. Furthermore, these gels can maintain their three-dimensional structure despite environmental changes such as mechanical and physical damage. Such rapid self-healing gel properties allow the hydrogel to mimic flesh/skin, allowing researchers to use self-healing gels in various biomedical applications such as tissue engineering, wound healing, drug delivery, cosmetology, and others.
COVID-19 Impact on the Rapid Self-healing Gel Market:
The Rapid Self-healing Gel market declined in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This deadly virus has adversely affected the globe, especially the North American and European regions. To prevent the further spread of this virus, companies have shut down their operations and manufacturing facilities, and the government restricted production activities. This has reduced the consumption of Rapid Self-healing Gel across all industries. But currently, there are no restrictions, and the spread of the virus is also controlled. The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had limited the raw materials supply required for self-healing gel manufacturing during the pandemic. As a result, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to hinder the growth of the rapid self-healing gel market. Therefore, industries are developing and creating healthy competition for the Rapid Self-healing Gel market.
By Crosslinking Type
North America is expected to dominate the global rapid self-healing gel market over the forecast period because of the rising incidence of chronic wounds. For example, according to Ecronicon, approximately 2.5 million people in the United States suffer from pressure ulcers yearly. This is expected to drive rapid self-healing gel market growth in North America.
Asia-Pacific accounted for approximately 15% of the total industry size and is expected to register a CAGR close to 7.5% during the forecast period. High R&D investment and a surge in demand for specialty medical products in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries will significantly impact product demand, triggering a rapid growth of the self-healing gel market in the region shortly.
