Conductive Polymers generating potential for new technologies, to witness a CAGR of 10.7% during 2017-2023

NEW YORK, Nov. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global conductive polymer market is expected to witness a CAGR of 10.7% and is projected to reach USD 9,980 Million by 2023. Factors propelling the growth of conductive polymer market include increased usage of conductive polymer in various applications, growing demand for intelligent material owed to its properties, industrialization and economic growth in emerging nations.

The report segments the Conductive Polymer market by Type (Inherently Conductive Polymer, Polyaniline, Polyphenylene Based Resin and Others), by Application (Antistatic Packaging, ESD & EMI Protection, Capacitors, Actuators, Sensor, Batteries, Solar Cells and Others) by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW)). The report studies the global conductive polymer market over the forecast period (2017-2023).

Conductive Polymer refers to the organic polymers which conduct electricity, in the form of metallic conductivity or in semiconductors form. The properties such as chemical resistance, flexibility, dimensional stability, and strength enable conductive polymers to find its application in various end-user industries. The processability, mostly by dispersion is the advantage of conductive polymers. These polymers offer high electrical conductivity but lack similar mechanical properties to other commercially available polymers. In order to fine-tune the electrical properties, the method of organic synthesis and advanced dispersion technique can be used.

Conductive Polymers- Catering Organic Photovoltaics Demand

Organic solar cells are light weight and incur low manufacturing costs unlike the conventional photovoltaics, providing a cost-effective solution for photovoltaic applications. The rising awareness towards conservation of the environment has created a high demand for sustainable source of energy. The shifting focus of governments towards renewable sources of energy such as solar energy is anticipated to drive demand for organic solar photovoltaics. According to a study conducted by Frankfurt School & United Nation Environment Program, solar energy incurred the largest investment of USD 113 billion, accounting for 47% share among other renewable energy sources investments, in 2016. The huge investments in solar energy are attributed to shifting focus towards sustainable energy, reducing solar photovoltaic costs and government involvements, leading to the increase in demand at commercial and residential levels, having a positive impact on conductive polymers demand.
