Global Smart Polymer Market 2018-2023: Segmented by Type, Application, and Region - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Smart Polymer Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Region - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global smart polymer market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period, majorly driven by the applications of shape memory polymer in automotive and textile industry.

Textiles integrated with SMPs can help in achieving different 3D forms in garments. Window curtains or films with SMPs can also act under the influence of external stimuli by opening and closing intelligently. The changes in microstructure and macrostructure properties of smart clothing in response to stimuli can help in achieving heat and moisture management of human bodies. With the rapid development of SMPs for integrating SMPs into automotive subsystems and textiles, the use of SMPs in the automotive and textile industry is expected to grow in multiple dimensions, as a result of their promising potential applications.

Thermo-Responsive Polymers the Dominating Type: Therapeutic agents, such as drugs, cells or proteins can be mixed with the polymer forming a gel deposit and injected over the damaged area after increasing the temperature. Medical advancements, emerging biotechnologies, and an overall increasing healthcare industry are expected to drive the demand for thermo-responsive polymers.

The demand for smart polymers is high in North America, owing to the increase in research initiatives for the implementation and commercialization of smart polymers. United States has the largest share in the global healthcare market and rapid growth of the medical industry in the nation is expected to augment the demand for smart polymers. Furthermore, rise in adoption of smart polymers in diverse applications such as drug delivery, food & drug packaging, tissue engineering, and robotics are the major factors that boost market growth in the forecast period.
