Global Self-healing Materials Market: Overview
Self-healing materials refer to materials that have the ability to repair damages without human intervention. These materials are inspired from biological systems that display the ability to restore after being damaged.
Self-healing materials are categorized as biomaterials, reversible polymers, inorganic capsules, self-healing coatings, shape memory materials, and vascular systems. These materials are used across several end-use industries such as automotive, healthcare, military, construction, electronics, aerospace, and energy generation.
The market study is a collective of facts and factoids that presents developments in the global self-healing materials market in a chronological order.
Global Self-healing Materials Market: Trends and Opportunities
The key factor driving the self-healing materials market is that self-healing materials significantly reduce the maintenance needed for restoring damages. Self-healing materials such as self-healing mortars and self-healing cements used in the construction sector have displayed significant demand over the past few years. The trend is expected to continue in the forthcoming years as well.
The Automotive sector displays a significant demand for self-healing materials. This is because automotive OEMs apply an exterior covering to automobiles that work as a healer in the event of a scratch or a cut. Thus, the frequency of maintenance required due to scratches and cuts on automobiles is reduced significantly and also the frequency of regular maintenance.
The electronics industry displays a significant demand for self-healing materials. Electronic giants such as Apple and LG are recommending the usage of self-healing materials in electronics such as laptops, desktops, and mobiles.
The healthcare industry presents lucrative growth opportunities to the self-healing materials market. This is because self-healing materials have the potential to be used in the production of biomimetic, thereby bolstering the growth of the self-healing materials market.
Global Self-healing Materials Market: Regional Outlook
North America is anticipated to be the leading regional market for self-healing materials. Increasing research and development initiatives for the development of self-healing materials has led to the significant growth of North America self-healing materials market. Europe is also expected to be a significant regional market for self-healing materials due to their increasing utilization in construction, electronics, and automotive end-use industries. Besides this, Europe has a developing healthcare industry with massive investments in biomimetic. The presence of several major OEMs in the region are also boosting the growth of this regional market.
Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as a significant market for self-healing materials due to their increasing applications in construction and automotive applications. In particular, economic development in countries such as China and India propelling the construction sector is also leading to the growth of this regional market.
Latin America is expected to display steady growth in the self-healing materials market predominantly driven by the growth of the construction sector in the region. The regional market of Middle East and Africa are expected to rise on similar lines on account of economic development in South Africa and economic development in countries of GCC.
