Smart Polymers Market summary

Smart polymers, also referred as sensory cues polymers or intelligent materials, may be found in both high-tech and common goods. Sensors and actuators such as artificial muscles, oxygenation of blood and also in cardiopulmonary bypass surgery are among their applications, they are widely used in manufacturing of hydrogel, recyclable packaging, and biomedical engineering.

A minor change in humidity, pH, light, or temperature may cause a big change in smart polymer characteristics, and this non-linear response distinguishes them. Smart polymers have an all-or-nothing reaction that is totally predictable, with the change occurring uniformly across the material. They may change their conformation, adhesiveness, or water retention qualities, but they can revert to their original condition once the stimulus is removed.

These biocompatible, strong, robust, and flexible polymers are classed based on their physical properties or the stimuli to which they respond. They may be characterized as reversible gels covalently cross-linked, free linear chain solutions, and polymer chain grafted on a surface based on their physical form.

Smart polymer systems might lead to more precise and customizable medication delivery. Smart polymeric drug delivery systems that may release encapsulated pharmaceuticals at the right time and place of action in response to certain physiological stimuli.

The development of smart polymeric materials with good biocompatibility and adjustability may hasten the advancement of precision medicine, also known as personalized medicine. Precision medicine is a cutting-edge field of health care that is based on a person's clinical, genetic, and environmental conditions. because smart polymeric materials may be created to have very particular features for individuals
Shape memory polymer (SMP) is a type of smart material that can fix in the momentarily programmed shape and return the original shape when exposed to external stimuli. SMPs' unique and extraordinary qualities are being used to create smart textiles by embedding SMP into the fabric.

In December 2021, a team of scientists from the United States' Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Singapore's Nanyang Technological University NTU Singapore developed a food packing material made of smart polymer that is sustainable, biodegradable, and kills microbes that are harmful to humans. It also has the potential to extend the shelf life of fresh fruit by two to three days.

Ecoatoms, a 4D biomaterials startup, was recently approved into a NASA programme that would utilize technology for commercial suborbital flight experiments. Their approach combines biomaterial and smart polymer biosensor technologies for use in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and defense applications.
