Research and Markets has released a new report, titled The Global Market for Self-Healing Materials, Polymers and Coatings to 2033. According to the report, the need for sustainable manufacturing solutions is driving the growing market interest in self-healing materials, polymers, and coatings. The use of self-healing materials, polymers, and coatings can prolong the life of industrial materials, reducing plastic usage and negating the need to maintain and replace infrastructure.
Self-healing materials and coatings can heal or repair themselves automatically and autonomously from damage (e.g. mechanical or corrosion) without any external intervention. This process leads to the (partial) restoration of the original properties of these materials, in particular the mechanical properties.
Inspired by natural biological systems, continuous efforts are being made to mimic natural materials and integrate self-healing capabilities into coatings, polymers, and polymer composites. Main types of self-healing systems are intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic self-healing is chemically driven by non-covalent bonds or reversible chemical bonds. In extrinsic systems microcapsules or vascular networks release healing agents to damaged locations or wounds. The Global Market for Self-Healing Materials, Polymers and Coatings report provides a comprehensive review of this technology area, players, and market.
Report contents include:
- Global revenues for self-healing materials, polymers, and coatings-historical and forecast to 2033.
