Global Electroactive Polymer Market is projected to grow at an impressive CAGR during the forecast period due to increase in end use industries. In 2021, the market value of the Indian textile industry was worth USD 223 billion.

Over the next five years, the demand for Electroactive Polymers will increase due to the increased use of touchscreen smartphones, enhanced electroactive polymer properties, increased demand for lightweight and cost-effective polymers, increased use of eco-friendly materials, and the need for manufacturing flexibility. Due to the presence of numerous significant manufacturers, APAC is likely to continue to play an essential role in the electroactive polymer market over the forecast period. APAC is anticipated to see the highest CAGR of any region, supported by rising demand for electronic applications.

Growing Demand for Electroactive Polymer in Smart Fabrics

Sensing and Actuating microfibers are textiles directly woven with electromechanical systems like sensors, actuators, electronics, and power sources. Electroactive Polymers (EAPs) are suitable for usage as smart fabrics due to their adaptability and affordability. The development of smart fabrics uses polypyrrole and polyanilines. The need for EAPs in smart fabrics is anticipated to rise in the upcoming period due to increased R&D across countries like the U.S., China, and Japan undergoing dramatic economic expansion. According to the National Council of Textile Organizations, “In 2021, the value of U.S. man-made fiber, textile, and apparel shipments totaled an estimated $65.2 billion, compared with $60.8 billion in shipments in 2020”.

Rising Demand for Actuator Application Segment

Over the recent years, there have been technological advancements that have brought radicle development in the Actuators utilized as a significant application for Electroactive Polymers. Remarkable advances in upgrading the actuation strain of Novel Applications such as microfluidic systems and tissue engineering have also emerged, enabling the demand for Actuators resulting in the forecasted growth of the Global Electroactive Polymer Market.
