The different types of polymer chameleons available in the market are shape memory, thermos-responsive, electroactive and magnetically-responsive, photo-responsive, self-healing, pH responsive, enzyme-responsive, etc. Of these, shape memory polymers are predicted to see massive uptake in the near future.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2017 -- Global Polymer Chameleons Market: Overview
Polymer chameleons, also referred to as "smart" polymers, will likely be the next big hit in the medtech domain. They are stimuli-responsive, environmentally sensitive materials that alter their microstructure due to an external trigger such as ultrasound, pH, ionic strength, heat, magnetic and electric fields, light, and chemical species. The changes are reversible and the material structure can return to its original state on removal of the trigger. These engineered polymers are used as a functional tool for a variety of applications in metabolic control mechanisms and drug delivery implants.
The different types of polymer chameleons available in the market are shape memory, thermos-responsive, electroactive and magnetically-responsive, photo-responsive, self-healing, pH responsive, enzyme-responsive, etc. Of these, shape memory polymers are predicted to see massive uptake in the near future. They can change drastically due to thermal or other such stimuli into an elastic state from a rigid polymer. They can regain their "memory" shape if left uncontrolled.
At present just a handful of top-tier players enjoy a stronghold over the global polymer chameleons market. They are focused on product development and diversification and expanding their global outreach, particularly in high growth markets. They are also resorting to strategic acquisitions to further cement their positions.
