Self-Healing Material Market
Self-Healing Material Market

The global self-healing materials market is likely to showcase a growth of around 50% during the forecast period. Self-healing materials are materials or products which are artificially created and have the built-in ability to autonomously heal damage to themselves without external or human participation. Self-healing materials repair themselves and are high in demand due to their self-healing capability which can reduce the extra cost of maintenance. Modern self-healing materials are glass, rubber, plastic, metals, and others. These materials may heal stresses at the micro level such as small cracks. This can considerably improve the lifespan of the material. Currently, self-healing materials development is either at the preliminary or product level and so these materials are yet to be available for many applications. Applications of self-healing materials are expected almost entirely in all industries in the future. The very few applications being developed to date are mainly in the automotive, aerospace, and building industries. For example, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd has commercialized the world’s first self-healing clear coat for car surfaces.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst material types, the concrete has a prominent share in the market in 2020”

Based on material type, the market is categorized into concrete, coatings, polymers, asphalt, fiber-reinforced composite, ceramic, metals, and others. Among these, concrete has a prominent share in the self-healing material market. Concrete is a conventional material largely used in construction. It is widely used in the construction of dams, ports, storage tanks, tunnels, roads, subways, and others. In spite of these, it is strong and durable.

“Amongst industry, the building and construction considerably have a large share in the self-healing materials market”

Based on industry, the market is categorized into building and construction, transportation, electrical and electronics, general industrial, healthcare, and others. Among these, building and construction considerably have a large share in the market. As the population is increasing demand for buildings and houses is also increasing. Moreover, the rising use of self-healing materials in the non-residential construction sector, for durability and high strength is one of the factors driving the self-healing materials. Further, increasing public and private investments in construction activities is also a factor fuelling the demand for self-healing materials in the construction & building sector.

“Asia-Pacific accounted for a considerable share in the global self-healing materials market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of self-healing materials, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World. The large base of the industry in the Asia-Pacific region helped the region to obtain a significant position in the market. Further, increasing focus on research & development activities to improve the adoption of the latest technology is likely to propel the market for self-healing materials.
