Self-healing materials are artificially created substances that possess self-healing properties without the exertion of any external force. These materials repair themselves and are highly demanded owing to their self-healing capacities that reduce the extra cost of maintenance. The self-healing process of these smart materials starts with responding to change in external stimuli such as temperature, light, and others. The most commonly used self-healing materials are elastomers and polymers, whereas it covers a wide range of materials from metals to ceramics. The global self-healing materials market is expected to expand at an encouraging CAGR during the forecast years. The ability of self-healing materials to repair itself substantially helps in reduction of the maintenance and repairing cost which paves their path into many end-user industries such as energy, pharmaceuticals, building and construction, electronics, and automobiles among others.

Geographically, the global self-healing materials market has been segmented into five major regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, North America, and the Middle East and Africa. The Europe region is projecting dominance over the global self-healing materials market owing to the extensive research that is being carried out for the development of innovative materials that possess self-healing properties and increasing utilization of advanced technology for manufacturing such materials in this region. Rapid advancement of technology and skyrocketing demand for self-healing materials in various end-use industries are propelling the growth of the self-healing materials market in the North America region. Growing infrastructural development and increasing utilization of technologically advanced solutions in construction and building industries in the emerging economies are fueling the expansion of the self-healing materials market in the Asia Pacific region. Rapid expansion of various end-use industries in the developing countries of the Asia Pacific region is also contributing to the growth of the self-healing materials market in this region. The Middle East and Africa region is projecting slow growth in the global self-healing materials market owing to the poor economic conditions, lack of awareness regarding the availability of such materials and low demand form the end-use industries in this region.
