Global Hydrogel market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 6.5%, in value terms, during 2018-2023. High adoption rate of sanitary products, growth in the demand for soft contact lenses, availability of numerous chemistries and formulations, medical advancement and improved patient convenience are some factors, that will propel the demand for hydrogel over the next five years. APAC is anticipated to remain a strong contributor in the Hydrogel market in the forecast period, owing to growing demand for hydrogel market in emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil and others. APAC is expected to register faster CAGR than any other region, backed by increasing consumption of hygiene products.

Some of the major players operating in the global hydrogel are

Cardinal Health, Smith & Nephew, 3M, Johnson & Johnson, Coloplast, B. Braun Melsungen, Derma Sciences, Medtronic, Royal DSM, DOW Corning etc.

TechSci Research performed primary as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study. Initially, TechSci Research sourced a s globally. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also enquired about their competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include manufacturers, distributors and dealers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analysed form, raw material, composition, application & regional presence of all major hydrogel manufacturers across the globe.

TechSci Research calculated the market size for the global hydrogel using a bottom-up approach, where manufacturers’ value data for application of (contact lenses, wound care, personal care and hygiene, drug delivery, agriculture & others), hydrogel was recorded as well as forecast for the future years was made. TechSci Research sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives, and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company annual reports, white papers, investor presentations and financial reports were also used by the TechSci Research.


Key Target Audience:

  • Global hydrogel manufacturers
  • Research organizations and consulting companies
  • Organizations, associations and alliances related to Hydrogel
  • Government bodies such as regulating authorities and policy makers.
  • Industry associations
  • R&D Institutions

 The study is useful in providing answers to several critical questions that are important for industry stakeholders, such as manufacturers, dealers, distributors and policy makers, which market segments should be targeted over the hydrogel coming years (next five years) in order to strategize investments and capitalize on growth of the market.
