Global Intelligent Polymer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An intelligent polymer is a synthetic material that has been designed to respond to its environment. This could include changing shape or color in order to communicate information, or even repairing itself autonomously. The potential applications for such materials are vast and varied, but could include everything from smart fabrics that change color based on the temperature, to self-healing materials that can fix themselves when they are damaged.


Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is one of the most important technology used in the production of intelligent polymer. Intelligent polymers are those which have special functional groups that can react with other chemicals to produce desired products.

Physical vapor deposition is a chemical process where solid material is converted into gaseous phase, which in turn condenses on a surface to form desired product layer.


Intelligent polymer is a new term used for the intelligent application of any polymer. These materials have unique properties such as conductivity, shape memory, biocompatibility & flexibility which make them very useful in medical devices & implants.

Application Insights:

The application segment includes biomedical & biotechnology, automotive, electrical & electronics, textiles and others. The other applications include food packaging and medical applications. Electrical & electronics is expected to be the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for intelligent polymers in various end-use industries such as healthcare equipment and appliances; consumer durables; industrial robotics; mobile devices including smartphones and tablets; smartwatches etc.

The textile industry is also anticipated to witness significant growth on account of increasing demand for clothing among all age groups across the world especially during winters. Moreover, growing trend of e-commerce has further accelerated the growth of this industry which in turn will boost market size over next seven years or so.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global intelligent polymer market in 2016 with a revenue share of over 30%. The growth is attributed to the presence of major industry participants, high R&D investment by them and their efforts to commercialize products at an early stage. North America has one of the highest per capita income levels that enables people to choose from various advanced technologies. This factor is expected to have a positive impact on regional demand for intelligent polymer solutions over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period owing its rapidly developing economies such as China, India and Japan along with other Southeast Asian countries. Increasing population coupled with rising living standards are expected drive product demand in these regions which would subsequently propel market development during the forecast period. In addition, increasing government spending on healthcare & medical research will also support regional growth through 2030  at a CAGR exceeding 6% from 2017to 2018).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and construction industries for lightweight materials that can improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.
  • Growing demand for medical implants, prosthetics, and other biomedical applications made from biodegradable polymers.
  • Rising awareness of the environmental benefits of intelligent polymers over traditional plastics materials.
  • Advances in polymer engineering that are making it possible to create more sophisticated smart polymers with new properties and applications.
