Based on resin type, the report categorizes the global conductive polymers market into the following segments:

  • Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resin
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin
  • Polyphenylene-based resin
  • Polycarbonate resin
  • Other resins

The top three revenue-generating resin segments in the global conductive polymers market are discussed below:

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resin

ABS resins are the most popular resins of the conductive polymers market, generating almost 23% of the overall revenue. The unique characteristics of ABS include impact resistance, machinability, chemical resistance, and easy to glue and paint,” says Mahitha Mallishetty, a lead analyst at Technavio for plastics, polymers, and elastomers research.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a thermoplastic polymer that is usually synthesized through emulsion polymerization. ABS is widely used in applications that require superlative surface quality such as domestic appliances, pipes and fittings, electroplatable automotive interiors, covers, support blocks, structural components, housings, and exterior trims.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin

The PVC resin segment is the second largest revenue generator for the conductive polymers market, and projected to be worth USD 1,355 million by 2021. PVC is the most commonly available and versatile thermoplastic that can be used alone or in blends with other polymers. The PVC resins segment is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period due to their cost-effective, easy to process, and flexible nature. PVC is also used as the base polymer for carrying out studies on proton-conducting films with application in proton electrochemical cells.

Polyphenylene-based resin

The global conductive polymers market by polyphenylene-based resin was estimated to reach USD 1,098 million by 2021. The market segment is projected to showcase significant growth, at a CAGR of almost 9% over the forecast period,” says Mahitha.

Polyphenylene-based resins such as polyphenylene oxide, polyphenylene sulfide, and polyphenylene ether are widely adopted in the conducting polymer market due to their greater temperature and chemical resistance. They are highly preferred for taxing and intricate automotive applications such as motor vehicle component manufacture.
