Key market trends

Inherently Conductive Polymers (ICPS) To Drive Market Growth

  • Traditionally, carbon-based polymers have been viewed as electrical insulators. Such polymers can be given a certain degree of conductivity by the addition of quantities of a conductive additive, generally carbon, nickel or silver.

  • Inherently conductive polymers were accidentally discovered in the 1970s, by a Japanese chemist, when excess catalyst was added to a batch of polyacetylene. When the resulting silver film was doped with various oxidizing agents, the material was found to have become conductive. This has resulted in the development of several other conductive polymers.

  • ICPs are electrically conductive polymers, in which conductivity results from the presence of carbon-carbon conjugate bonds. These conjugated polymers have interesting and useful properties, due to their delocalized electronic systems.

  • The result is a material that combines the electrical properties of a semiconductor or metal, with the mechanical or other useful physical properties and processing benefits of a polymer.

  • The use of ICPs is under investigation for practical applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices. Although stability and processing issues have yet to be overcome for global acceptance, the potential of these materials is immense.

  • Thus, the demand for intrinsically conductive polymers (ICPS) is expected to increase during the forecast period.

North America dominates the market

  • Conductive polymers are ideal for use in products where space and weight considerations are critical, such as automobiles, airplanes, and portable consumer electronics. Common applications of conductive polymers, which utilize their conductivity or electroactivity, include electrostatic materials, conductive adhesives, electromagnetic shields, artificial nerves, anti-static clothing, active electronics, and aircraft structures.

  • In North America, the United States has the largest market for automobiles and airplanes. The United States is one of the largest consumers of conductive polymers in the world market. A high rate of adoption of the technology in the country is expected to boost the consumption of conductive polymers in the coming years.

  • The United States is one of the largest consumer electronics markets in the world. Electronic gadgets are experiencing a high adoption rate in the country. The United States is one of the technologically advanced countries in the world and people regularly buy consumer electronics.

  • Smartphones, tablets, portable speakers and AI-assisted electronics are experiencing a high growth rate in the region. Other industry segments and sectors are also expected to impact the growth of the market.

  • As R&D operations take place on a large scale in the region, the market is expected to evolve over the next few years. Thus, the US conductive polymer market is expected to grow at a sustained rate.
