Polymer Gel Market Analysis
A polymer gel is a type of gel that is made up of a three-dimensional cross-linked polymer network that may be distorted extensively. This is conceivable because these gels are soft and filled with a liquid solvent such as water or another liquid solvent that imparts deformation capabilities in various forms and sizes. The lengthy polymer molecules network maintains the integrity of the liquid and gives it a solid appearance. It depicts a wide range of stimuli-responsive actions in response to changes in the environment. It is mostly used in drug delivery actuators, sensors, and modulators, as well as to keep various polymers distinct. Apart from that, it is used in robotics, petrochemicals, paints and coatings, and chemical manufacture all over the world. Based on the type of solvent employed, polymer gels can be split into two groups: hydrogels and non-aqueous gels, which use an acid solution in a polar organic solvent. Polymer gel systems, which are made up of a network polymer and a solvent, are unique. Polymer gels can be made by either establishing solutions or swelling a polymer in a solvent with a low solubility limit.
Covid-19 Impact Analysis
- A significant number of Polymer Gel companies in numerous ways felt the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, and they are now focusing on long-term growth.
- Amid lockdown imposed by the government to contain the spread of Covid-19 has led to disruption of the supply chain resulting in non-availability of the raw material and halted production activities. This is likely to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
- However, the market is expected to grow from 2021 and onward as developing countries have lifted the lockdown restrictions to start the economic activities resulting in growing demand for polymer gel from cosmetic and personal, building and construction industry.
Top Impacting Factors
Because of the constantly developing personal care market, demand for polymer gels is expected to expand significantly during the forecast period. Because of its great absorption capability, polymer gel is primarily driven by demand from the personal care industry. The expanding growth in numerous end-use sectors in the Asia Pacific area is likely to drive up demand for polymer gel. Polymer gels are commonly utilised in the production of diapers all over the world. A rapidly growing new-born population as well as a growing awareness about personal cleanliness are driving diaper demand. Furthermore, increased female labour force participation and rising disposable income are supplementing demand for infant diapers, which is fueling total market demand.
- Agriculture makes widespread use of polymer-based biodegradable materials, which helps save irrigation water. Biodegradable polymer-based products reduce irrigation water use by 40% to 70%. Polymer gels also aid in the reduction of fertiliser use in agriculture. The polymer-based gel aids fertiliser binding to the roots, preventing fertiliser leakage into the earth.
- With the growing popularity of smart farming approaches such as water conservation and fertiliser reduction, the worldwide polymer gel market is expected to grow.
- One of the important drivers driving market expansion is a significant increase in the use of polymer gel due to its low tack, effective absorbent and non-oily qualities.
- It is also used to make facial masks, mascaras, cuticle coatings, and transparent gels in the personal care and cosmetics industries.
- The development of innovative technology, as well as advances in production procedures, for better quality products, is a trend that has emerged in the manufacturing sector. PHASE transition has recently acquired significance among numerous technical developments. The manufacturing business is booming, thanks to increased R&D expenditures and new regulatory requirements.
- Saudi Arabian Amiantit Company, Ma's Group Inc., Sumitomo Seika Chemicals Co. Ltd., LG Chemicals Ltd., BASF Corporation, Dow Chemical’s, Chemtex Specialty Limited, Enduro Composites Inc., Evonik Industries, FIMA Group Ltd., and Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd. are among the major players in the global polymer gel market.
- North America is predicted to lead the global market and will likely do so for the foreseeable future. The region's dominance can be ascribed to rising demand from a variety of end-use sectors as well as the presence of key players operating in the region.
- Increasing awareness of skincare, consumer spending, and the ageing demographic are all contributing to the personal care industry's rise in Asia Pacific. Over the projection period, anti-pollution, carbonated skincare, halal beauty, and TMC-based products are likely to drive the personal care sector.
