The Rapid Self-Healing Gel Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% in the forecast period of 2023-28, cites MarkNtel Advisors in the recent research report. The growing application of the rapid self-healing gel and its rising popularity in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is aiding the market's growth. Likewise, the demand for novel drug delivery systems and massive research and development investments in biomedical engineering to fulfill this demand has further supported the market's growth.
Besides, the prolonged life span of self-healing hydrogels, even after being exposed to external tensions, along with the ability to repair themselves while providing comfort and pain relief, amplifies the application and demands for Rapid Self-healing Gels. Moreover, the compatibility of hydrogels for developing artificial natural structures like cartilage, ligaments, and tendons has led to the rising application of the gel. Furthermore, the flexibility of self-healing hydrogels makes them ideal for in-situ injection of cells, medications, or proteins into the healed area, further states the research report, "Rapid Self-Healing Gel Market Analysis, 2023."
The market is broadly fragmented based on Cross Linking and Application. Further classifications of Cross-Linking Types include Physical and Chemical. Based on application, the industry is categorized into Wound Healing, Drug Delivery, Tissue Engineering, 3D Printing, Surface Coating, Soft Robots, and others.
The Introduction of Hydrogel, Injected Through a Syringe, Promotes Drug Delivery Application
Application through Drug Delivery is expected to occupy a significant market share during 2023-28. The segment’s success is attributed to the soaring demand for a novel drug delivery system. Additionally, massive research & development investments have further accelerated the market. On a similar note, the self-healing hydrogel that can be injected through a syringe while carrying two drugs, introduced by US researchers, has further elevated the preference for the Drug Delivery segment. Furthermore, the ability of self-healing hydrogels to be molded into precise shapes, provide treatment over longer durations and target specific tissues has led to the added eminence of the market.
