Sensors play an important role in the manufacturing and industrial equipment industries and are utilised for process control, monitoring, and safety of machines. Actuators have a widespread application in the automotive and automobile industries. They play an important role in both day-to-day tasks like packaging, label scanning, and printing and complex tasks like robotic controls.  This has significantly contributed to the growth of the electroactive polymer industry.

 

The Asia Pacific to Provide Significant Growth Opportunities to the Electroactive Polymer Industry

The Asia Pacific region is estimated to account for a significant share of the electroactive polymer industry. Electroactive polymer requirements in the region have been driven by factors such as increased electronic device production and shifting consumer preferences towards compact and portable consumer electronics and gadgets. South Korea, China, and Taiwan are some of the world’s largest electronics production bases and offer tough competition to European and North American producers. In terms of demand, electronic components in the Asia Pacific have the highest growth rate in the consumer electronics industry. The demand for electronic items is expected to rise consistently in the future as the consumer disposable income increases, consequently propelling the market.

 

Electroactive Polymer: Industry Definition and Segmentation

Electroactive polymer, abbreviated as EAP, is a thin-film polymer that changes its volume, shape, or size when stimulated by an electric field. It can act as a sensor or an actuator. After applying an electric field to the film, it will change in shape and this change in shape can be utilised to move various fluidic types of products. EAP can also generate voltage and can be utilised as an energy harvester. After stretching the film and allowing it to relax again, it will generate a voltage that can be stored in a battery or capacitor.

By product, the market is divided into:

  • Conductive Polymers
  • Inherently Conductive Polymers
  • Inherently Dissipative Polymers
  • Others

Based on application, the industry can be segmented into:

  • ESD and EMI Protection
  • Antistatic Packaging
  • Actuators
  • Sensors
  • Others

The regional markets for the product include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Increasing Demand for Inherently Conductive Polymers to Bolster the Global Electroactive Polymer Industry Growth

Inherently conductive polymers are projected to occupy a substantial market share in the electroactive polymer industry during the forecast period. Inherently conductive polymers are low-priced soluble organic polymers that have electrical characteristics akin to conductive metals and semiconductors. The extensive R&D activities in developed regions like North America on various potential applications of inherently conductive polymers are contributing to the growth of the electroactive polymer industry. Additionally, inherently conductive polymers are in high demand in robotics, energy harvesting, artificial muscle, medical, and electronics industry. The rapid technological advancements in these industries are expected to enhance the product demand in the forecast period. However, electroactive polymers are manufactured from raw materials that are arduously extracted and dangerous to the environment, which may hamper the market growth.
