The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Hydrogel Market.
It was estimated prior to this unanticipated outbreak that the Hydrogel Market was expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period. However, the gradual slowing down of industries will undoubtedly impose limits on the previously estimated growth rate.

Hydrogel is a three-dimensional network of hydrophilic polymers that can hold a large amount of water while maintaining the structure due to chemical or physical cross-linking of individual polymer chain. They have the ability to swell in water. There must be at least 10% water content of the total weight/volume for a material to be a hydrogel. Hydrogen undergo a volume phase transition in response to physical and chemical stimuli such as temperature, electric and magnetic fields, solvent composition, light intensity, and pressure, pH, ions, and specific chemical compositions and are capable of returning to their initial state after a reaction as soon as the trigger is removed.
