Self-Healing Materials Market Drivers
Low Maintenance Costs
The maintenance costs related to self-healing materials is almost nothing or very less, because the material maintains itself or is self-healing. Therefore, no separate costs have to be made for maintaining such materials, which means it can be divided over a long period. The depreciation costs are also relatively less, due to the self-healing nature of the materials, making it economical.
Growth in demand for sustainable infrastructure
The demand for a sustainable infrastructure from various end-use industries such as construction & building, automotive and electrical & electronics industry is driving the self-healing materials as they offer a long-lasting and durable quality of materials for various applications across many end-use industries.
Self-Healing Materials Market Challenges
High prices of Self-Healing Materials
The high prices of self-healing materials are one of the biggest challenges in the self-healing materials market. The high quality of such materials attracts high prices, which is not affordable by many small manufacturers and business and therefore pushes them to resort to cheaper alternatives.
Material aging and deterioration
Self-healing materials are subject to aging and deterioration, which is one of the major challenges of the self-healing materials market. Since, the self-healing materials are chemically advanced materials, their shelf-life is less compared to materials with simple chemical composition. This is one of the major hurdles which acts as a challenge to the self0healing materials market.
