Electroactive Polymers Market Demand 2021 Top Companies, Drivers, Trends, Revenue, Top Leading Countries and Prominent Players Forecast
Electroactive polymers (EAP) are a type of elastomer (flexible, elastic polymer) that changes its shape and size when an external electrical field is applied to it. Due to this interesting property, EAPs are used in various applications including construction materials, automotive parts, plastics, and clothing.

Moreover, made using a low-cost manufacturing process, electroactive polymers are extremely cost competitive. As a cumulative result of these advantages, EAPs are extensively used in various applications such as actuators, sensors, ESD & EMI protection, drug delivery systems, robotics, and electrostatic plastics among others.

Major Players:

Key players leading the global electroactive polymers market include Parker-Hannifin Corporation (U.S.) Solvay (Belgium), Agfa-Gevaert Group (Belgium), Merck Sharp & Dohme Corporation (Germany), 3M (U.S.), The Lubrizol Corporation (U.S.), Premix (Finland), Novasentis, Inc (U.S.), PolyOne Corporation (U.S.), and Kenner Material & System Co., Ltd (China) among others.
