Electroactive Polymer Market by Type (Conductive Plastic, Inherently Conductive Polymer, Inherently Dissipative Polymer), Application (ESD Protection, EMI Shielding, Actuators, Capacitors, Batteries, Sensors), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

Electroactive Polymer Market by Type (Conductive Plastic, Inherently Conductive Polymer, Inherently Dissipative Polymer), Application (ESD Protection, EMI Shielding, Actuators, Capacitors, Batteries, Sensors), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

The electroactive polymers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2017 to 2022
The electroactive polymers market is estimated at USD 3.51 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 5.12 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the electroactive polymers market can be attributed to the increasing demand from the ESD protection, EMI shielding, actuators, and other applications across the globe. Electroactive polymers find applications in various end-use industries because of their unique properties. Contrary to conventional materials (metals), electroactive polymers products are lighter in weight, durable, and have better conductive properties.
However, environmental non-compliance owing to their improper disposal are identified as restraints to the growth of electroactive polymers market across the globe.

Among types, the inherently conductive polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Among types, the inherently conductive polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. EAPs are cost-effective options for robotics and luminescent applications in comparison to metals and semiconductor materials. These polymers can be modified to get the desired properties, for example, low driving voltage. This has led to increased demand for fabrication and precision instruments. Countries such as India and China with large populations provide an opportunity for the electroactive polymers market owing to the increased demand for consumer electronics. Moreover, conductive polymers possess properties, such as easy moldability, easy processing, low weight, corrosion resistance, and design flexibility which is attracting many electroactive polymer manufacturing companies.

The Asia Pacific electroactive polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific electroactive polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. An increase in manufacturing activities combined with the region’s emergence as a cost-effective production hub is expected to drive the electroactive polymers market. Rapid industrialization in this region plays an important role in fueling the demand for EAPs in ESD and EMI protection, consumer electronics, and paints & coatings applications. In this region, the demand as well as manufacture of consumer electronics has increased significantly and is expected to drive the need for EAPs in the near future.
