Smart Materials Market to Hit Around US$ 112.5 Billion by 2030

The Smart Materials Market size is expected to hit around US$ 112.5 billion by 2030 expanding growth at a CAGR of 14.5% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

The global Smart Materials market size was valued at US$ 40.7 billion in 2020. Smart materials are adaptive or intelligent materials which pose intrinsic and extrinsic capabilities. These can be altered by external stimuli, such as moisture, temperature, electromagnetic field, and pressure to obtain the desired functional effects. In addition, these materials are dynamic in nature and respond to their immediate interaction environments by adapting their characteristics. Advancements in the materials science sector resulted in the development of materials for specific applications, which was previously not possible with the use of conventional materials, such as polymers/plastics, metals, glass, and ceramics. Smart materials are capable of working at a very basic functional level, such as temperature and can be used in very complex technical systems by incorporating additional functionalities and properties. For instance, smart materials can be used in energy supply systems for microelectronic components.

Smart materials are used in applications, such as transducers, actuators & motors, and structural materials. The market for smart materials is driven by the rise in adoption of smart materials products among various end-user industries, such as defense & aerospace, automotive, and consumer electronics; supportive government initiatives & plans; and increase in R&D investment by prominent players to optimize the cost and quality of smart materials. There is a high demand for smart materials on account of potential growth in emerging economies as well as evolution in Internet of Things (IoTs).

Value Chain Analysis

The value chain of smart materials observes the presence of large number of stakeholders from the raw material providers to final end users. Each of these stakeholders share a specific value at their point of operation, and in turn, contribute to the competitive value of the product. R&D activities, innovations, and marketing strategies further enhance the value associated with end-deliverables by each player, who operate in the global smart materials industry.

Government Initiatives and Incentive Programs

Currently, some specific group of industries, such as small and medium enterprises (SMEs) lack in terms of adoption of smart materials due to high cost. Introduction of several initiatives and programs to encourage industries to invest in and utilize smart materials is projected to impact throughout the forecast period.

Substantial Investment in R&D

Increase in demand for enhanced smart materials and products from various industries, such as construction, manufacturing, and automotive are anticipated to encourage key players operating in the smart materials market to invest considerable amount on research and development to introduce efficient products and stay ahead in the competition.

Actuator & Motors

Actuators are the components of machine that respond to change in mechanical property, such as viscosity or dimensional change. For instance, a simple amplifier which converts low energy signal into high energy signal. Smart materials, which include shape memory alloys, magnetostrictive materials, piezoelectric ceramics, and magnetorheological/electrorheological fluids are integral parts of actuators. On the other hand, motors are also actuators that convert electrical energy to mechanical energy through the production of continuous angular rotations.

Loudspeakers are used as acoustic actuators for active noise control applications. Pneumonic and hydraulic actuators are frequently found useful when large force, low frequency, and displacements are required, while the shaker/electromagnetic actuator are used to respond against an inertial electrodynamic mass. Actuators have the potential to enhance vehicle performance and fuel economy to ensure convenience and comfort. In actuation technologies, shape memory alloys are used for tight-integration and small-scale applications, such as in small-displacement tensile motors. Nowadays, actuators have become an inseparable part of robotics where pedal motors, manipulator joint motors, deployment motors, drive/steering motors, and sampling tool motors are used. Key players are inclined to enhance, design, and develop process of actuators to make actuator compatible with wide range of applications.
