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% between 2017 and 2022. The increase in consumption of personal care & hygiene products is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the hydrogel market during the forecast period. In addition, the rise in disposable income of consumers and increase in the applicability of hydrogels in the healthcare industry are other factors influencing the growth of the hydrogel market.

The hydrogel market has been segmented on the basis of raw material type, form, composition, application, and region. Based on composition, the polyacrylate segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the polyacrylate segment can be attributed to its superior properties, such as high water retention ability and flexibility.

Based on application, the agriculture segment of the hydrogel market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022, as the use of hydrogels helps prevent soil erosion and enhances crop yield.

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the hydrogel market in 2016. This market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. The growth of hydrogel market in emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, and South Africa can be attributed to the increase in consumption of hygiene products and rise in the production of commercial hydrogel contact lenses.

Hydrogel Market

The poor response of hydrogels in external environment acts as a restraint to the growth of the hydrogel market. Hydrogels are polymeric networks that swell quickly by absorbing large quantities of water or other biological fluids and de-swell in response to the changing environmental conditions. This process of de-swelling makes hydrogels too fragile and hampers their physical strength. Moreover, the response properties and elastic properties of hydrogels are altered with the changing environmental conditions. Furthermore, lack of awareness regarding hydrogels among end users is another factor restraining the growth of the market.

The hydrogel market is led by major players in the healthcare and chemicals industries. Johnson & Johnson (US), Cardinal Health (US), The 3M Company (US), Coloplast (Denmark), B. Braun Melsungen (Germany), Smith & Nephew (UK), Derma Sciences (US), Royal DSM (Netherlands), Dow Corning Corporation (US), Paul Hartmann (Germany), Momentive Performance Materials (US), Ocular Therapeutix (US), ConvaTec (UK), Ashland (US), Evonik Industries (Germany), Cosmo Bio USA (US), MPM Medical  (US), Molnlycke Health Care  (Sweden), Hollister  (US), Medline Industries (US), Gentell  (US), and Alliqua Biomedical (US) are key players operating in the hydrogel market. These players have adopted various strategies to expand their global presence and increase their market share. Mergers & acquisitions, expansions, and new product launches are some of the key strategies adopted by leading players to strengthen their position in the hydrogel market.
