Covid-19 Scenario:

  • There has been a considerable increase in demand of biomedical devices and related products such as ventilators and face masks in which shape memory polymers and self-healing polymers are used. These products are effective in avoiding transmission and treatment of affected patients.
  • The production of N-95, one of the effective face masks to prevent infection, rose considerably as the pandemic hit the world. Consequently, the demand for smart polymers increased.
  • However, the demand from the automotive industry has been declined as production activities of electric vehicles and other automobiles have been halted due to lockdown enforced by governments.
  • Majority of skilled workers from the manufacturing plants have migrated to their hometowns. Owing to non-availability or less availability of workforce, the production of smart polymers has been affected considerably.

The report offers a detailed segmentation of the global smart polymers market based on type, stimulus, application, and region.

Based on type, the shape memory polymers segment contributed to the highest market share in 2019, accounting for more than two-fifths of the total market share, and is projected to maintain its lead during the forecast period. Moreover, the self-healing polymers segment is projected to register the highest CAGR of 13.1% from 2020 to 2027.
