Smart Material Market: Overview

Smart materials, also known as intelligent or responsive materials, are materials that have one or more properties that may be influenced by external stimuli such as moisture, stress, light, electric or magnetic fields, pH, temperature, or chemical compounds. Several applications like sensors and actuators, or artificial muscles rely on smart materials, particularly electroactive polymers. The qualities of smart materials adapt to changes in their surroundings. This means that an external condition can modify one of their qualities. This alteration is reversible and repeatable. Smart materials come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each has its own set of attributes that may be tweaked.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the global smart material market from FY 2020 to 2021. This is primarily due to a shortage of raw materials from major manufacturers. Most of the smart material manufacturers are concentrated in Asian Countries, especially China, which provides most of the raw materials required for manufacturing smart materials. However, most of the countries in Asia witnessed the devastating effects of a pandemic that shook the overall industry in China, Japan, and South Korea affecting the overall manufacturing of smart materials worldwide.

Smart Material Market: Growth Drivers

Increased demand from the aerospace industry is expected to propel market expansion.

Piezoelectric smart materials are used in the aerospace sector to help control and maintain airflow over a plane's wings throughout take-off and landing. Additionally, these materials have been shown to manage common aircraft challenges such as engine vibration, excessive cabin noise levels, ice formation on wings, turbulence-induced secondary flows, and surface controls in cold temperatures. Airlines are expected to replace older planes with more fuel-efficient models and expand their fleets to accommodate the continual expansion in air travel across new and existing nations.

Over the last decade, passenger air travel rose at a pace of 6.7 percent each year, greatly above the long-term average of 5 percent. To fulfill passenger demand, several airlines throughout the world added additional jets to their fleets while postponing jet retirements. These factors increased the demand for smart materials.

Smart Material Market: Restraints

The market's growth is hampered by high production costs and expensive R&D expenditure

Smart materials are extremely efficient materials. However, because of the high degree of R&D needed, its performance comes at a hefty price. End-users are looking for materials that are more economical and efficient. As customers want more economical solutions, the value of smart materials falls. Smart labels and tags used in the Smart Packaging industry are costly; as a consequence, the challenge for food and agricultural providers is to reduce the cost of smart labels and expand their range so that they have the same disability as bar codes.

Even the construction industry is cost-intensive, and when choosing building materials, builders strive for both efficient and low-cost solutions. Active suspension systems using smart materials are becoming increasingly popular in the automotive industry. Cost and availability, on the other hand, are stifling demand scenarios. Manufacturers are anticipated to continue to innovate in order to make the technology more widely available.

Smart Material Market: Opportunities

Increasing applicability of smart materials is likely to offer great opportunities for market expansion.

As manufacturing systems have advanced and better materials have been employed, the demand for smart materials has risen across a range of end-user sectors. Smart materials are predicted to increase their applications significantly, and they will play a critical role in the market's growth. As a result, during the forecasted time, the impact is likely to be considerable. Shape memory, piezoelectric, electrostrictive, phase change, magnetostrictive, and electrochromic materials have all seen considerable industrial applications in recent years. In addition, electroactive polymers, ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, carbon nanotube actuators, and conductive polymers are just a few of the emerging materials with a lot of global smart materials market potential.

Smart Material Market: Challenges.

Dearth of experience for developing system-based materials may hinder market growth.

The smart material sector is still developing and newer possibilities are opening with an increase in research activities. However, the synthesis of smart material is complex and requires a skilled workforce to make the product more cost-effective. Moreover, with the increase in complexities of machinery and devices, demand for system-based smart materials is increasing to improve overall productivity. But only few manufacturers operating in the market are capable to produce system-based materials; further, end-user ignorance has hampered the product's economic potential. These factors are acting like smart materials market growth barriers.

Smart Material Market: Segmentation

The global smart material market is bifurcated based on application, end-user, and region.

Based on application, the market is bifurcated into transducers, actuators & motors, sensors, structural materials, and coatings. The actuators & motors segment held the dominating market share in 2022 and is expected to cite a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The major reason for the growth of the segment is that actuators are notably capable of revamping and upgrading fuel economy (mileage) and vehicle execution to ensure comfort and convenience. These days, actuators have become an inseparable chunk of robotics where deployment motors, sampling tool motors, pedal motors, manipulator joint motors, and steering/drive motors are essentially utilized.

Based on end-user industry, the market is segmented into industrial, defense & aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, healthcare, and others. The defense & aerospace industry held the largest market share in 2022 and is further projected to occupy a dominant status and simultaneously grow at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is mainly due to an increase in investment and budget for the defense & aerospace sector among various countries across the globe as there has been an exponential rise in terrorist activities and war situations around the world. Thus, various countries are rapidly increasing their military capabilities to expansively portray their defensive prowess and also to protect their own countries. Therefore, the extensive utilization of smart materials in the aviation and defense industry in numerous countries drives the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

Recent Developments

  • In December 2021, KYOCERA Corporation revealed its HAPTIVITY®i human-machine interface (HMI) technology, a hybrid invention that combines the company's proprietary HAPTIVITY® touch technology with TactoTek Oy's IMSETM, a patented 3D injection-molded structural electronics technology.
  • In March 2021, TDK Ventures, a subsidiary of TDK Corporation, invested in Span, a developer of revolutionary smart electrical panels that seek to provide consumers with the opportunity to manage and monitor their home energy use in real-time via a mobile app. When combined with sustainable energy upgrades like solar panels, house batteries, and EV charging, the Span Smart Panel is very beneficial.
