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. Consumption of smart polymers in this end-use industry is growing due to the rising demand for highly efficient polymers to manufacture effective drug delivery systems and phase separation processes. The use of smart polymers for the treatment of cancer and diabetes has gained significant importance as these can deliver the therapeutic agent for a prolonged period of time at the targeted diseased area.

North America projected to be the fastest-growing market for smart polymers

North America is projected to be the fastest-growing market for smart polymers between 2017 and 2022. This high growth is due to increasing advancements in biomedical technologies and high investments in R&D activities. The US is projected to be the fastest-growing market for smart polymers in North America, followed by Canada and Mexico. Rising technological advancements in end-use industries, such as automotive, medical, textiles, and footwear are driving the smart polymers market in this region.
