Smart polymers market expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.9% during the forecast period
The smart polymers market is projected to reach USD 2,071.1 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 21.9% between 2017 and 2022. Smart polymers are also known as stimuli responsive polymers that react to different external stimuli such as pH change, UV light, temperature change, pressure, magnetic or electric field, and enzymatic changes. Increasing adoption of smart polymers in the automotive and drug delivery sectors is expected to drive the global smart polymers market during the forecast period. High cost of technology development and polymer production may act as restraints for the smart polymers market.
Physical stimuli responsive polymers projected to be the fastest-growing type of smart polymers
The physical stimuli responsive polymers segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Polymers under this type respond to several stimuli such as temperature, light, pressure, electric field, and magnetic field. The growth of this type of polymers is directly associated with the growing demand for innovative technologies in end-use industries such as biomedical & biotechnology, automotive, and textiles.
Biomedical & biotechnology industry projected to be the fastest-growing end-use industry for smart polymers
The smart polymers market in the biomedical & biotechnology industry is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period.
