Global Stretchable Conductive Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Stretchable conductive is a material that can be stretched to twice its original length without breaking and still maintain electrical conductivity. This makes it ideal for use in stretchable electronics, such as wearable technology and medical implants. Stretchable conductive materials are also more durable than traditional metal wires, making them less likely to break during normal wear and tear.


Graphene is a form of carbon with an atom-thin layer of single-layer graphene sheets. It's properties are similar to that of the graphite in natural graphite, but it has superior electrical and thermal conductivity. Graphene can be used as a replacement for silicon in many applications due to its stretchability property which allows it to be easily incorporated into complex structures like microchips or solar cells.

Carbon Nanotube:

Carbon nanotubes are single-walled carbon molecules that are rolled into a hollow tube. Due to their excellent mechanical properties, they have found widespread applications in stretchable conductive materials. These tubes can be made as long as required and their diameters can be varied accordingly for use in electronic devices or medical implants.

Application Insights:

The wearable electronics segment is projected to emerge as the fastest-growing application over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for fitness tracking devices, smartwatches and other similar products. The biomedical segment is also expected to witness significant growth during the same period owing to rising applications in drug delivery systems, implants and sensors.

Stretchable conductive materials are used in medical applications including wires made of silver or gold for operating rooms, sutures made of silver or carbon nanotubes that can be embedded into organs after they are repaired by surgeons. These wires have a high resistance when they come in contact with body fluids such as blood which makes them an ideal material for use in catheters that are used during heart surgeries.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of a large number of research universities and institutes that are engaged in R&D activities related to conductive materials. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand from end-use industries such as biomedical, electronics, automotive, and others for developing products with enhanced performance characteristics at low costs. This can be attributed for driving industry expansion across countries such as Japan, India, South Korea among others which will propel market growth during the projected time frame.

Europe was another major regional segment occupying a share of more than 20% in terms of volume due mainlyto graphene based products being extensively used across various applications including wearables sector especially by companies like Fitbit Inc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for stretchable conductive in wearable electronics
  • Rising demand for stretchable conductive in medical devices
  • Growing popularity of stretchable conductive in automotive applications
  • Proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and increasing demand for flexible sensors
  • Technological advancements and innovations in the field of stretchable conductive
