World Hydrogel Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2015 - 2022
Hydrogel is a water-insoluble polymer chain network that can retain high water content within its structure (about 90% water in the gel base). Hydrogels are used in hygiene products such as baby diapers, sanitary pads, adult incontinence pads, and soft contact lenses. In addition, they are increasingly used in wound care dressings for cleansing and debriding necrotic tissues in wounds. They are also used during the treatment of partial or thick wounds, necrotic wounds, burns, and autolytic debridement.
