Hydrogel Market Trends

With the slowdown in world economic growth, Medical Grade Hydrogel industry has also maintained a relatively optimistic growth. In this blog you will find out more about the research on hydrogel, its amazing healing properties, its current Market Scenario and its future market trends.


First lets understand about what exactly is an hydrogel. Hydrogels are network of polymer chain which are that are hydrophiliic but are sometimes found as colloidal gels in which water is the dispersion medium. Its probably one of the most commonly used bio-materials, which consist of around 90% water and 10% natural or synthetic polymers. Hydrogels have received considerable attention in the past 50 years, due to their exceptional promise in wide range of applications from Implants to drug delivery systems(DDS). Its self-healing property is due to Carboxymethyl Chitosan and Cellulose Nanocrystal. These tough gel adhesives has several years of shelf life and anti-bacterial ingredients engraved in them. These can incorporate bioactive agents to further enhance skin regeneration for burn wound, thus helps in wound healing too.

Research Statistics

The National Laboratory Astana at Nazarbayev University developed a new wound healing ointment to improve the recovery of patients using these medical grade hydrogels. University scientists have recognized hydrogel's natural properties, focused on processes that are on-going and also understood its future trends. They are quite aware that developing countries like Kazakhstan would benefit from these for coping with various patients dealing with various chronic traumatic injuries. The USA too has this critical concern on severe injuries like diabetic foot. Thus, they are looking forward to an aid which does not have any adverse side effects or any allergic reactions. This new product improves patients for not only injuries but also skin burns. Thus its estimates that this product could potentially treat patients as well as save the overall cost of the wound care industry.
