Smart polymers or polymer chameleons are environmentally sensitive and stimuli-responsive materials that undergo rapid changes in their microstructure which are activated by variations in their surroundings. PH, ultrasound, heat, ionic strength, magnetic & electric fields, among others can be classified under external stimuli. These alterations can be reversed/returned to their original structure/state upon the removal of the trigger.
These polymers have characteristics like adaptability and compatibility which support various valuable tools for medical treatment. Polymer chameleon manufacturers are presently formulating resources that assist in biosensor designing, drug delivery systems, wound treatment and other metabolically regulated systems. Owing to its expansive applications, the polymer chameleons market is slated to grow significantly.
In the medical sector, polymer chameleons have promising applications such as therapeutic agents, culture support systems, tissue engineering, the delivery technique of actuator systems, etc. In recent times, new areas of application such as implants, pharmaceuticals, medical diagnostics, and treatment sectors have been initiated.
Regulations applied to monomers and synthetic resins play a crucial part in the development of this market.
In terms of product insights, segmentation of the global polymer chameleons market is as follows – shape memory, photo-responsive, thermos-responsive, electroactive-responsive, magnetically-responsive, enzyme-responsive, pH-responsive, and self-healing among others. The shape memory polymers segment is anticipated to experience the highest rate of growth over the forecast period. These are altered products whose physical and chemical properties are transformed to offer an active shape ‘memory’ characteristics.
The application aspect of the market has been segmented into – smart drug delivery system & implants, textile engineering, bioseparation, and automotive & transportation among others. The increase in the use of engineered polymers for effective drug delivery has proven to be more advantageous due to its measured drug release patterns that mimic biological demands. They operate automatically and do not require additional transducers, sensors, pumps or switches. Increasing biomedical applications are expected to boost the growth of the global polymer chameleons market.
In automobile manufacturing, polymer chameleons are now being utilized in a range of diverse applications as replacements for petroleum-based plastics.
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the biggest and accounted for a majority of the global polymer chameleons market in 2018. Many companies in this region are focused on developing innovative product portfolios, particularly in R&D facilities for the medical and therapeutic sectors. An increase in the number of manufacturing units paired with the implementation of innovative technologies is slated to boost the production of smart polymer chameleon products over the foreseeable future.
Europe is also expected to witness considerable market growth owing to an increase in the requirement for chameleon materials by several foreign players in this region. Furthermore, favorable amendments and regulations by the EU and the European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organizations (EPRO) are expected to play a crucial role in this region’s market growth over the forecasted period.
