Self-healing materials are smart materials that can retain their shape in response to external factors such as light, temperature, moisture, and others. Prime examples include fiber-reinforced ceramic composites, fiber-reinforced polymer composites, and metal alloy composites. Applications in high-temperature resistant sectors are likely to drive its need. The global self-healing materials market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) contains astute insights and predictions based on historical trends and the current economic situation. Estimations are made for the period of 2018 to 2023 (forecast period) while keeping in mind the impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Scope

The global self-healing materials market is set to expand at an impressive growth rate during the forecast period owing to its ability to self-heal any damage in regards to external factors. It can command a huge demand from industries of aerospace, automobiles, building & construction, chemicals, and energy. Investments in research and development for materials not requiring frequent maintenance and renewal have culminated insignificant results. Recently, a group containing members of Kyushu University and RIKEN developed a new material made from ethylene which can retain its shape in acidic or alkaline solutions.


The global self-healing materials market is segmented by product type, technology, and application.

By product type, it is segmented into ceramics, coatings, concrete, and polymers. Among the segments, the concrete segment is expected to be dominant in the market, while asphalt is anticipated to show an impressive CAGR during the forecast period. Asphalt can find major applications owing to its usage in great quantities by the construction sector.
