Shape-memory Polymer Market Key Takeaways


Shape memory polymer is a polymeric brilliant material that, when triggered by an external stimulus such as temperature, power, attractive field, light, synthetic chemicals, and so on, may return from a distorted transitory form to its unique changeless state. The polymer is first shaped into a permanent shape using conventional methods, then warped into the desired temporary shape using a technique known as programming.

Textiles combined with these SMPs can aid in the creation of various 3D shapes in clothing. Under the impact of heat, window curtains or films containing temperature-induced SMPs can also act, changing the microstructure and macrostructure characteristics of smart clothing. As a result of the foregoing, temperature-induced SMPs are expected to account for the majority of market share during the period.

With a market share of about 65 per cent in 2020, the biomedical end-user sector led the shape memory polymer market. Devices for diagnostics and surgery are among the biomedical uses of SMPs. Market participants are conducting extensive research to discover new creative uses of SMPs in the biomedical industry. Many SMP-based medical devices, such as catheters, sutures, stents, and cannulas, have resulted as a result of this. They're also utilized in pacemakers and artificial hearts as components.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increasing use of shape memory polymers for effective medication administration in cardiovascular stents, healthcare, splints, orthopaedic braces, catheters, and orthodontic is projected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Rising demand for aerospace and automobile segments is expected to fuel market growth in the coming years.
  • Relatively low stiffness values are estimated to impede market growth.
  • Rapid growth of the shape memory ceramics and alloys throughout the world are major factors pushing the market expansion during the forecast period/in the coming years.
  • Surge in R&D investments and technological advancements are expected to create opportunities for the market players.
