Smart materials are defined as a class of reactive materials that changes some of its properties in response to change in the external environment. Several smart materials possess different properties that can be changed. These materials sense the change in the external environment and respond to it by changing their properties in order to adapt to the surroundings. The response of smart materials varies, depending on the chemical structure. For instance, piezo-electric materials produce electricity when mechanical stress is applied, whereas shape memory returns to its original upon change in temperature.

This report estimates and forecasts the smart materials market on a global and regional level. The study provides forecast from 2014 to 2020 based on revenue (US$ Mn).
