In 2017, the global conductive polymer market size was valued at USD 3.64 Billion. Due to increasing awareness towards protecting electronic devices medium from electromagnetic interference (EMI), electrostatic discharge (ESD), radio frequency interface (RFI), has resulted to expand the global conductive polymer market size. Moreover, accelerated manufacture of electrical vehicle have a positive impact in the market.
Growing importance of electronics devices with reduced sound levels because of tight laws obligatory to manage pollution is anticipated to lead patrons procuring semi conductive plastics as well as ABS and PPS in situ of typical metals and ceramics. Rising importance of ionic polymers in industry on account of providing supreme dimensional stability yet pretty much as good conducting characteristics is anticipated to stay a favorable issue. These materials are electro active in nature and used for providing characteristics including smart optical property, efficient mechanical flexibility and high thermal stability. ABS, polycarbonates (PC), polyphenylene rosin, nylon, synthetic resin terephthalate (PPS) and polyvinylidene chloride (PVC) are the majorly used product.
Leading players of the global conductive polymer market include 3M, Solvay SA, KEMET, Celanese, Hyperion Catayst International, Heraeus, Covestro and SABIC. Heavy reliance on rock oil costs is anticipated to stay a difficult issue for manufacturers. Development in electronics sectors of China, Japan, and Asian country is projected to force industry participants to ascertain their production units within the neck of the woods.
