Polymer Chameleons Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Polymer Chameleons in Medical and Health Sector- Polymer chameleons are those stimuli-responsive polymers that quickly alter their microstructure in response to atmospheric changes. Polymer chameleons can be used to replace intraocular inserts, intervertebral plates, and vascular inserts in customized prosthetics. Also, an increasing demand for polymer chameleons in drug delivery systems for specific applications.  Increasing demand for polymer chameleon Polymer chameleons are increasingly being used in the healthcare and medical sectors owing to an increased focus on smart materials and extended shelf lives which is boosting the polymer chameleons market.
  • Increasing Use of Polymer Chameleons in Aerospace Industry- Particularly for deployable structures and components, the aircraft industry uses polymer chameleons. Optical reflectors, morphing skins, trusses, hinges, booms, and antennas are some of the main applications. In addition, various patents for applications involving shape memory polymers (SMPs), such as tuneable automotive brackets, intravascular delivery systems, grippers, and hood/seat assembly vehicles, have been filed by top polymer chameleon manufacturers. Therefore, it is projected that the increasing use of polymer chameleons in the aircraft sector will propel the market's growth rate.
  • Growing Environmental Awareness- The demand for polymer chameleons is anticipated to increase as environmental issues and sustainability are given more global attention. More than 55% of people, according to a recent survey performed in 24 countries, are more aware of their environmental effects.

Challenges

  • Exorbitant Cost of Raw Materials- The high cost of raw materials is one of the major factors predicted to slow down the polymer chameleons market growth. For instance, the cost of raw materials needed for producing polymer chameleons keeps fluctuating, which in turn increases the cost of raw materials for manufacturers.
  • Lack of Availability of Raw Materials
  • Stringent Government Regulations
