Polymer Nanocomposites Market

Nanofillers dispersion in polymer matrices is considered to improve the material's physical, mechanical, and barrier characteristics. These enhanced properties make them more beneficial for use among many others in industrial sectors such as construction, packaging, electrical & electronics.

The automotive industry is poised to become the principal end-user of polymer nanocomposites.  In both indoor and outdoor applications, polymer nanocomposites are used. These nanocomposites are broadly used in the automotive industry due to their high strain carrying capacity considering their lower weight.

Their use in fuel systems is one of the crucial applications of polymer nanocomposites in the automotive industry. Their nano-size makes the texture soft and helps to retain any harm to corrosion and other barriers. The fuel lines are shielded against sour gas, which preserves the characteristics of the base resin. Additionally, these products assist to prevent harmful static electricity from building up and discharging petrol stations. Polymer nanocomposites are also used in the imparting of electrostatic conductivity for automotive exterior plastic parts, such as door handles, mirror housing, fender, etc. Other applications include exchanging membrane switches with thermoformable, printable, capacitive touch sensors in automotive interiors and enhancing other heat and mechanical properties.  Hence, such investments indicate the wait for development and production of new vehicles in the polymer nanocomposites market, which is further expected to drive the demand for polymer nanocomposites market in the coming years. With the region's automakers investing heavily in vehicle innovation and growth, especially lightweight and environmentally-friendly electric vehicles, automotive manufacturing is expected to rise in the coming years.

Due to extensive adoption in production and automotive industries in nations such as India and China, Asia-Pacific accounted for the biggest percentage in the global polymer nanocomposite industry. Between 2016 and 2033, the aviation sector in China is said to be introducing around 6,000 new aircraft. The largest incremental increase in China's national aerial transport industry was in excess of the number of traveler trips in 2018 relative to 2017. The increase in passenger numbers encourages the government to invest more in-flight production, which in turn increases polymer nanocomposites consumption. Industries such as packaging, electronics & semiconductors, aviation, defense, and coatings are constantly discovering new applications that will further ignite the development of the Asia-Pacific polymer nanocomposites market. The Middle East is still underdeveloped with regard to the polymer nanocomposites market.

Key Factors Impacting the Growth of Polymer NanocompositesMarket:

  • Increasing demand in the electronics industry especially in the semiconductor technology segment.
  • Increasing demand in automotive electronic technologies owing to reducing the size of components.
  • The high cost of technology.

Key Developments in the Polymer NanocompositesMarket:

  • In 2012, Arkema announced the acquisition of both Cray Valley and Cook Composites and Polymers.
  • In 2016, DuPont introduced a family of thermoplastic nanocomposites that promise to open new opportunities for the design and production of plastic parts delivering higher performance, lighter weight, and increased molding productivity.
  • In 2019, Evonik acquired Structured Polymers Inc., a US-based technology startup for 3D printing polymer nanocomposites headquartered in Austin, Texas. The acquisition will provide Evonik access to a new patented technology that will allow the company to expand its portfolio of specialty polymer nanocomposites in the additive manufacturing market.
