The Conductive Polymers Market is expected to experience a CAGR of over 12.3% during the forecast period.
Conductive polymers belong to the family of plastics. They are lightweight, flexible, and inexpensive plastics that conduct electricity. They are known to shrink, swell, and bend when stimulated by electricity. Conductive polymers are further classified into Inherently Conductive Polymers (ICP), Inherently Dissipative Polymers (IDP), Conductive Plastics, and Other Conductive Polymers. Conductive polymers find wide application in anti-static packaging, capacitors, textiles and fabrics, batteries, sensors, actuators, solar cells and organic transistors. Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polycarbonate, polyphenylene-based resins, polyethylene and polypropylene together make up about three-quarters of all conductive polymers used. Through constant R&D activities, scientists have made several polymers conductive in recent years. These include polypyrrole, polyamine, polythiophene, and polyacetylene.
Traditionally, carbon-based polymers have been viewed as electrical insulators. Such polymers can be given a degree of conductivity by adding amounts of a conductive additive, typically carbon, nickel or silver. 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. 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 useful mechanical or physical properties and processing benefits of a polymer. The use of ICPs for practical applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices is under study. Although stability and processing issues have yet to be overcome for worldwide acceptance, the potential of these materials is immense.
In February 2018, the development of nanocomposites based on conductive polymers for electrochemical biosensor applications was launched.
In April 2021, the new conductive polymer ink for next-generation printed electronics is unveiled.
In December 2003, the use of artificial intelligence methods to design new conductive polymers was developed.
