Consumption Demand from Asia-Pacific, Fueled by Fastest Growth for Phase Change Materials will Drive Global Smart Materials Market to Surpass $93 Billion by 2023

Friday 22 Jun 2018

Industry Experts, Inc. introduced the new market research report on Smart Materials. According to this comprehensive in-depth market report, exploring the market for various materials types/sub-types of smart materials, entitled "Smart Materials - A Global Market Overview" reveals that the Asia–Pacific is estimated the largest market in 2017 accounted US$16.2 billion. The region is also projected the fastest growing market through to 2023.

Smart Materials constitute a class of advanced materials capable of sensing and responding to a wide variety of stimuli that can include electric and magnetic fields, temperature, pressure, mechanical stress, hydrostatic pressure, nuclear radiation and pH change. The inherently unique characteristics of these materials make it possible for them to revert back to their original state after the external stimulus is removed. This next generation of intelligent materials displays adaptive capabilities and alters its physical properties such as shape, stiffness and viscosity in a specified manner. Smart Materials have multiple functionalities, such as self-adaptability, self-sensing, self-healing and memory, which allow them to be used in a variety of applications.

As per the findings by the analysts at Industry Experts Inc., Phase Change Materials (PCMs) constitute the fastest growing material type with a robust 20% CAGR in the global market for Smart Materials. The increasing application of structural products in applications, such as building resources, electronics cooling, energy storage, shipping and packaging would further propel demand for these materials. Piezoelectric Materials corner the largest share of the global Smart Materials market, accounting for a forecast 66% share in 2018.

The report reviews, analyses and projects the Smart Materials market for the period 2014-2023, globally and the regional markets comprising North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and Rest of World in terms of value in USD million. The regional markets further analyzed for 15 independent countries across North America – The United States, Canada and Mexico; Europe – France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom; Asia-Pacific – China, India, Japan and South Korea; and South America – Argentina and Brazil.
