Use of Hydrogels in Sanitary and Personal Care Product Boosting the Growth of Hydrogel Industry

Hydrogels are found in commonly available products, such as disposable nappies, hair gel, and plant water storage crystals.  Hydrogels are also used in biosensors for immobilisation and the creation of protective layers to control diffusion and enhance biocompatibility. Moreover, smart hydrogels are used as stimuli-responsive materials which can enable sensing and boost performance. Such applications are lubricating the market growth of hydrogels. As more than half of the world population needs some form of vision correction, the use of contact lenses is significantly increasing. The use of hydrogel in contact lenses for greater comfort is further invigorating the industry growth. Moreover, the surging use of personal care and hygiene products is also propelling the market growth.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness robust growth in the market for hydrogels. This is attributed to the rising disposable income, surging demand for hygiene and personal care products, and application of hydrogel in various other industries. Moreover, the increasing popularity of cosmetics and penetration of international brands in countries such as Japan, South Korea, India, and China are lubricating the market growth. North America holds a significant share of the market due to the increasing use of hydrogels in agriculture, biotechnology, and healthcare, among others. Europe is also anticipated to witness vigorous growth due to high per capita income and technological advancements, consequently fuelling the growth of the overall market.

Rising Demand for Hydrogel in the Agricultural Sector to Bolster the Growth of Hydrogel Industry

Hydrogels can increase the water rendition capacity of soils and the net plant yield. Moreover, they can also reduce drought impact on plants and enhance soil fertility, consequently aiding the market growth. Additionally, the surging population growth, rapid climate change, and reduced arable lands have enhanced the demand for high yield and sustainable agricultural practices and are further augmenting the industry growth. The rising emphasis on the use of biodegradable products due to increased environmental consciousness is also propelling the market growth. Innovations and the development of new hydrogels with enhanced physical properties are further driving the market growth. Moreover, very small particles of hydrogel, known as microgels, are used in the drug delivery system, hence aiding the market growth.

Also, emerging knowledge in polymer chemistry and biological processes leading to the rising use of hydrogels is aiding the market growth. The use of hydrogels has increased significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic. The rising need to create efficient and cost-effective vaccines has been prominent since the beginning of the pandemic, March 2020. The creation of hydrogel-based vaccines and the increasing research using hydrogel are significantly boosting the market growth. Moreover, the pandemic has increased not only the health-consciousness but also has increased the need for constant sanitisation. The use of hydrogels in hygiene products is contributing majorly to the overall market for hydrogels.
