Contrary to conventional materials (metals), EAP products are lighter in weight, durable, and have better conductive properties. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the electroactive polymer market during the forecast period.
Among types, the inherently conductive polymers market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Inherentlyconductive polymers include materials, such as polythiophenes, polyanilines, polypyrroles, and polyacetylenes. ICPs are soluble, low-cost organic polymers which have electrical properties like other conductive metals and semiconductors. ICPs are a kind of ionic electroactive polymers which alter shape by motion or diffusion of ions and their conjugated substance. The high demand globally can be attributed to the extensive R&D activities being undertaken in key countries, such as the US, Canada, and Mexico on various potential applications of inherently conductive polymers. The demand for inherently conductive polymers in robotics, artificial muscles, actuators & sensors in the medical, energy harvesting, and electrical & electronics industries is the highest and is expected to drive the EAPs market during the forecast period.
