Electroactive polymers are a class of polymers that undergo a change in shape or size in the presence of an electric field. Electroactive polymers are cost-effective and lightweight, and are widely used in sensors and actuators in many end-use industries.
Increasing use of electroactive polymers in the healthcare sector and rising adoption of electroactive polymers across a range of manufacturing industries owing to lower cost than other alloys and metals, are among some of the major factors expected to drive market growth.
In addition, rising demand for lightweight and low cost materials that have ease of synthesis and are durable and strong, as well as increasing importance of artificial and biomimetic muscles to resolve health-related issues are among other factors driving market growth. Growing popularity of smart fabric and rising use of electroactive polymers in electronic wearables and printed electronics market are other factors.
However, impact of these polymers on the environment is a major factor that could restrain growth of the global electroactive polymers market to a certain extent.
Moreover, rising demand for new sensors, coupled with increasing R & D activities in robotics, owing to the wide use of actuators in robotics is expected to create lucrative opportunities for major players operating in the global market.
By Product Type:
Among the product type segments, the inherently conductive polymers (ICPs) is expected to account for major revenue share, owing to presence of excellent properties such as environmental stability, high processability, and enhanced transparency.
Among the application segments, the actuator application segment is projected to dominate other segments in terms of revenue in the market, and is projected to maintain its position over the forecast period. This can be attributable to high operative efficiency over conventional materials.
The North America electroactive polymers market is expected to account for a majority revenue share in the global market, which can be attributable to increasing consumption of electroactive polymer as well as rising use of electroactive polymer as a base material in automobile, electronics, and electrical industries. In addition, presence of a large number of electroactive polymer manufacturers in the country, especially in the US, is projected to support market growth.
Revenue from the Europe market is expected to register a moderate growth rate, followed by the Asia Pacific market. The Asia Pacific electroactive polymers market is estimated to register a significantly higher growth rate during the forecast period. Rising production of consumer electronics in Japan, China, Taiwan, and South Korea, owing to rising use of nanotechnology, coupled with growing favorable regulatory support is expected to drive growth of the Asia Pacific market.
