Market Overview

Conductive polymers (CPs) are a new class of electronic materials, which have been widely adopted ever since their discovery. Conductive polymer has many advantages as compared to non-conductive polymer, which is primarily due to its electronic and optic properties. Properties of conductive polymers include dimensional stability, flexibility, chemical resistance, and strength. Conductive polymers are used in artificial muscles, fabrication of electronic device, solar energy conversion, rechargeable batteries, and sensors. Conductive polymers are also used in the production of light emitting diode (LED) based backlight displays of cell phones and television screens as thin conducting layers between two electrodes.

The photovoltaic industry is a growing market for conductive polymers, as these polymers are an efficient alternative to silicon. The use of conductive polymers for protection of metals against corrosion has gained huge attention during the past few years. The design and development of conductive polymer-based coating systems with commercial viability is expected with the use of nanotechnology and has received substantial attention. Conductive polymer also finds its use in a number of biological and medical applications.
