Global Electroactive Polymers Market: Overview

Electroactive polymers (EAPs) are variants of polymers that, under the effect of an electric field, are likely to change shape or scale. In nature, EAPs are extremely flexible since they can be conveniently produced in various forms due to the simplicity involved in the manufacturing of many polymeric materials. In the development of artificial muscles, EAPs have been used to provide the field of robotics with a better reach. Although most historic actuators are made of ceramic material, after it was seen that EAP would exhibit more strain than a ceramic actuator, EAPs have caught up. In the future, numerous factors such as demand for new sensors, emerging EAP applications in molecular electronics and a high commercial value of EAP-based actuators would benefit the market.

Global Electroactive Polymers Market: Growth Factors

Strict regulations drawn up by state legislative authorities with a view to reducing the adverse effects of toxic effluent releases. For example, for waste water discharged to surface water and urban sewage treatment plants, the EPA has established effluent guidelines. The substance is well-known in the waste water treatment industry for efficient coagulation and flocculation and is an ideal replacement for alum because it is less alkaline relative to alum. In comparison, at an equal dosage, the substance produces less sludge than the alum. PAC has broad use in the manufacturing of deodorants and antiperspirants in the beauty and personal care sectors. It is mostly due to the excellent properties of the substance, such as low iron content , high purity, durability, stability, etc., which makes it extremely preferable in the cosmetic & personal care industry.

Global Electroactive Polymers Market: Segmentation

The Electroactive Polymers market is fragmented based on type, and applications. By type, the market is divided into conductive plastics, inherently conductive polymers, inherently dissipative polymers, and others. The conductive plastics led the global market and had a larger share of the total output. These include compounds, antistatic additives, carbon nanotubes, and metal fibres for electrostatic dissipation (ESD)/electromagnetic interference (EMI). These products are used in the form of antistatic materials and are used in industrial screens, translucent displays, actuators, biosensors and organic solar cells. On the basis of end user, the Electroactive Polymers market includes electrostatic discharge protection, electromagnetic interference shielding, actuators, capacitors, batteries, sensors and others.

Region-wise, the global market is segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

Global Electroactive Polymers Market: Regional Analysis

In the recent past, North America held the leading share of electroactive polymers vis-à - vis value. The high demand for electroactive polymers for the manufacturing of specialised medical implants is a key factor in the development of the region's market for electroactive polymers. Another key driver behind the rise of the market for electroactive polymers in North America is the spike in minimally invasive surgical procedures in the United States. Another critical market for electroactive polymers is Europe. Electroactive polymers are indirectly fuelled by countries such as Germany and France that are long-established car hubs. This is because a vast number of engineering and mechanical components that are used in vehicles use electroactive polymers.
