On the basis of type, the conductive polymers market is classified into polycarbonates, polyaniline, polyphenylene-based resin, inherently conductive polymer (ICP), and others. Among these, in 2017, the polyaniline category dominated the market with a revenue contribution of more than 30.0%, owing to its application in fuel cells, sensors, batteries, and supercapacitors. Further, its stability at high temperatures and in the presence of corrosive substances has been another reason for its dominance in the market.

Similarly, when segmented by application, electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection, antistatic packaging, actuators, sensors, solar cells, capacitors, batteries, and others are the categories of the conductive polymers market. Out of these, in 2017, ESD and EMI protection was the largest category, with a revenue contribution of over 25.0%. The ability of conductive polymers to reduce the damage caused by transient surges, overcurrent, and overvoltage in several industrial and consumer applications was one of the reasons ESD and EMI protection was the largest application area in the market.

In the past few years, there has been a considerable increase in the usage of electricity, particularly in developing nations, such as India, China, and Indonesia, owing to the improving living standard. The high consumption of electricity, coupled with environmental problems in these countries, has significantly raised the demand for energy-efficient solutions. As a result, fluorescent and compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) bulbs are being replaced by LED bulbs, because these are more efficient and consume less power.

Hence, the increasing preference for lightweight, better-performing and energy-efficient electronic products is escalating the conduction polymer market growth.
