Europe Hydrogel Market by Form (Amorphous Hydrogels, Semi-Crystalline Hydrogels and Crystalline Hydrogels); By Raw Material (Synthetic, Natural and Hybrid Hydrogels); by Composition (Polyacrylate, Polyacrylamide, Silicone-Modified Hydrogels, Agar-based and Others); By Product (Semi-Crystalline Buttons, Amorphous Gels, Impregnated Gauze, Films & Matrices, Hydrogel Sheets); By End-User (Contact Lenses, Hygiene Products, Wound Care, Drug Delivery, Tissue Engineering and Others); by Region (UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Rest of Europe) – Analysis of market share, size & trends for 2016-19 and forecasts to 2030
Hydrogel interlinks with polymer structures that absorb and hold large quantities of water in a 3D way. A hydrogel is a material that can enlarge and retain water without mixing with water. The water absorption potential for hydrogels is derived from the hydrophilic functions linked to the polymeric backbone. The dissolution resistance of hydrogel comes from the physical or chemical cross-links among the polymeric chains. They occur naturally in the form of polymer or can be produced synthetically.
Europe Hydrogel Market is expected to reach USD XXXX million in 2030 from USD XXXX million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the market are discussed below. High sanitation rate, the increasing consumption of contact lenses, the availability of various chemicals and formulations, the advancement of medicines, and patient convenience are some factors that drive demand for hydrogel during the projected timeframe.
Europe Hydrogel Market: Segments
Super absorbent semi-crystalline hydrogel
Europe Hydrogel Market is segmented on the basis of form into amorphous hydrogels, semi-crystalline hydrogels and crystalline hydrogels. Amongst all these, the semi-crystalline segment captured a major market share of XX% in 2019 and is forecasted to grow at fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Semi-crystalline hydrogels consist of superabsorbent hydrogel polymers. Thus, they are used in the injury treatment for pressure sores, veiny leg ulcers and after operative wounds.
Europe Hydrogel Market: Market Dynamics
Growing demand for drug delivery
To overcome limitations on current medication preparations, controlled drug delivery systems are used for the delivery of medication at particular rates for a predetermined time. Two factors can be used to control hydrogel structures with high porosity: the level of cross-linkage in the matrix and the affinity of hydrogel to the aqueous medium where inflammation takes place.
Increasing usage of contact lenses
Contact lenses are a major field for the application of synthetic hydrogels. The immediate placing on the corneal surface of contact lenses avoids the diffusion of oxygen in environmental conditions and thus interrupts the natural physiology of the cornea generating stress so that the highest oxygen conductivity must be obtained from good contact lenses.
Europe Hydrogel Market: Regional Analysis
Europe Hydrogel Market is segmented on the basis of regional analysis into six major regions. These include UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Rest of Europe. Geographically, UK is expected to dominate the market in Europe over the forecast period, owing to increase in number of investments & expenditure in healthcare sector, expansion in research & development activities, and geriatric population’s preference for disposable lenses are likely to boost the demand for hydrogel in the region.
