1. Conductive Polymers: Technologies and Global MarketsPublished:October 2011No.Of Pages:228Price:US $ 4850INTRODUCTION* The global market for electroactive polymers was $1.9 billion in 2010. This market isexpected to be around $2.1 billion in the year 2011 and forecasted to grow up to $3.05billion by 2016 at a compound annual growth rate of 6.1%.* The market for conductive plastics was $1.7 billion in 2010, which is expected to grow to$1.8 billion by 2011. This market is forecasted to reach around $2.4 billion by 2016 at aCAGR of 5.9%.* ICPs are still considered an “emerging” market, but have started to “penetrate,” albeitslowly. The market for ICPs was $227 million, which is expected to grow from $297 millionin 2011 to $639 million in 2016 at a CAGR of 16.4%.STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVESThe major objective of this report is to measure and analyze markets for inherentlyconductive polymers (ICPs) and, somewhat, to a lesser extent, traditional conductively filledthermoplastics, in terms of their competitive scenario in specific applications. Another goalis to develop a reasonable scenario for inherently conductive polymers markets outside oftheir competitive posture vis-à-vis traditional conductive-filled thermoplastics.The latter group is often called “conductive plastics.” However, in several market reportsthese materials are often termed “conductive polymers,” which often leads to someconfusion.Often ICPs and conductive plastics are termed “electroactive polymers/plastics” while inother studies the phrase “electroactive” polymers includes very highly specialized polymerswith both electrical and/or optical characteristics (electro-optic polymers).Browse All Chemicals Market Research ReportsREASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYConductive plastics are made from traditional thermoplastics containing fillers that renderthem conductive, while ICPs conduct electricity on their own, and electro-optic polymersdevelop optical characteristics under influence of an applied electric field.Although conductive plastics mimic conductivity of metals (particularly copper and steel),insulative resins employing conductive fillers (e.g., metal or carbon powder or fiber) achievea measure of conductivity. However, there are generally compromises in terms of
2. processibility or performance or overall economics; thus, the search for alternate“conductive plastics” such as ICPs.By the mid-1990s, commercialization of ICPs was still in its infancy. Production of thesematerials had been scaled up from grams to pounds, but overall global production andconsumption totals are still negligible due to overall instability and higher prices.Even though several major companies have “given up” on ICPs, researchers and othercommercial and educational institutions are pushing ahead. Literally hundreds of papers andpatents on ICPs are published each year. Clearly, there are a great many scientists andcorporations who are still optimistic about significant commercial successes of ICPs and,indeed, usage has increased over the last several years.Electro-optic polymers (EO polymers) are further removed from commercialization thanICPs. However, there might be greater potential in the long term for EO polymers,compared with those of ICPs, because optical applications may be farther reaching thanelectrical uses.Clearly, there is a need for an objective appraisal of ICPs versus traditional conductiveplastic markets.ICPs have a wide variety of potential applications, such as electrostatic dissipation (ESD)control, light emitting displays, capacitors, electrostatic paintable plastics, antistaticpackaging, corrosion-resistant paints/coatings, and other more esoteric markets such asrechargeable batteries, smart windows, and electronic membranes. Currently, most ICPslack sufficient conductivity to be effective for EMI shielding.In many of these applications, ICPs are beginning to impact conductively filled traditionalthermoplastics, while the “market” for EO polymers is still not expected to becomesignificant until the middle of this decade, at the earliest.SCOPE OF THE STUDYThe report Conductive Polymers: Technologies and Global Markets will cover both ICPs andconductively filled thermoplastics in terms of their competitive scenario as well as to assessICP markets independent of traditional conductive plastics.Typical applications for conductive plastics include ESD/antistatic packaging, electrostaticspray painting, as well as other applications, while, as noted, ICP applications includebatteries, transistors, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), capacitors, corrosion-resistant coatingproducts, membranes, sensors, etc.It should be made clear that mention of new conductive polymer activities are a veryfrequent occurrence in the trade press and/or company press releases.To quantify estimated volumes for basic ICPs such as polythiophenes, polyanilines, orpolypyrroles is exceedingly difficult mainly because these materials are usually not used asexistent solids or liquids in the “neat” form, except for several types of films or “pastes.”
3. Polythiophenes, for example, are mostly sold in very dilute solutions (less than 5%concentration), while polyanilines are often used as 25% emulsions. ICP “volumes,”therefore, are almost always reported by weight as dilute solutions or emulsions and overallglobal estimates derived from various suppliers, the trade press, or reports vary by severalhundred percent. The major players in the ICP business are almost always unwilling toprovide even the broadest estimates because of the wide disparity of concentrations of theICPs along with the proprietary nature of this information.The overall market data is global, but further segmentation into major geographic areas wasnot feasible.METHODOLOGYBoth primary and secondary research sources were used to gather information, including:* Complete literature review on products and technology* Patent search* Contacts with key personnel from producers, suppliers, and end usersANALYST’S CREDENTIALSResearch analyst Mel Schlechter has more than 40 years in the chemical industry, andspecializes in plastics market research.
