The global self-healing materials market reached a size of US$ 2.0 billion in 2022. Looking ahead, it is expected to grow to US$ 9.6 billion by 2028, with a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.7% during the period from 2023 to 2028.

Self-Healing Materials and Their Applications

Self-healing materials are a new class of smart products or materials designed with built-in healing capabilities. They can repair damage spontaneously or in response to specific environmental stimuli such as pressure, heat, light, solvents, or electromagnetic fields.

These materials are broadly divided into two categories: extrinsic and intrinsic. They encompass a range of materials, including concrete, coatings, polymers, ceramics, metals, and fiber-reinforced composites.

Self-healing materials offer several benefits, including improved performance, safety, efficiency, and longer lifespan while reducing maintenance costs. As a result, they find applications across various industries, including construction, automotive, oil and gas, electronics, healthcare, and energy.
