Hydrogel Market by Raw Material Type (Natural, Synthetic, Hybrid), Composition (Polyacrylate, Polyacrylamide, Silicon), Form (Amorphous, Semi-crystalline, Crystalline), Application (Contact Lens, Personal Care & Hygiene), Region - Global Forecast to 2022

“The hydrogel market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.04% from 2017 to 2022”
The hydrogel market is estimated to be USD 11.43 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 15.33 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.04% from 2017 to 2022. The rising disposable income of individuals, growing population, and increasing awareness regarding hygiene are factors contributing to the growth of the hydrogel market in emerging economies, such as Asia Pacific and Latin America. However, the changing physical and chemical properties of hydrogels are acting as a restraint to the growth of this market.

“Based on composition, the polyacrylate segment accounted for the largest share of the hydrogel market in 2016”

The polyacrylate composition segment led the hydrogel market in 2016; this segment is projected to retain its leading position through 2022. Polyacrylate is the most commonly used hydrogel with significant characteristics, such as transparency, elasticity, and water locking ability. The polyacrylate hydrogel is extensively used in various products, such as paper diapers, sanitary towels, inflatable flood sandbags, protection materials, waterproof tapes, expansion toys, and water retaining gel for plants.
“Based on application, the personal care & hygiene segment accounted for the largest share of the hydrogel market in 2016”

Based on application, the hydrogel market has been segmented into wound care, personal care & hygiene, drug delivery, agriculture, contact lens, and others. The personal care & hygiene segment led the hydrogel market in 2016. Acrylate-based superabsorbent hydrogels are used in personal care products, owing to their ability to absorb fluids. Thus, hydrogels are increasingly utilized in personal care products, thereby contributing to the growth of the personal care & hygiene segment.

“The hydrogel market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period”

The hydrogel market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Among all countries in the Asia Pacific region, China was the largest market for hydrogel in 2016. The hydrogel market in India is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increase in disposable income of individuals has led to a rise in demand for personal care products, which, in turn, has contributed to the growth of the hydrogel market in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, increase in agricultural activities, especially in China, Indonesia, and India, is another significant factor driving the growth of the hydrogel market in this region.
