The scope of this study encompasses both ICPs and conductive polymer composites, both in applications where the two types of conductive polymers compete as well as ICP markets independent of traditional conductive plastics. Applications in which the two types of conductive polymers compete include ESD/antistatic packaging and electrostatic spray painting, as well as other applications. Unique ICP applications include batteries, transistors, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), capacitors, corrosion-resistant coating products, membranes and sensors, among others. Global market for electroactive polymers reached 447.3 million pounds in 2015. The market is expected to reach 725.8 million pounds by 2021 from 484.9 million pounds in 2016 increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4% from 2016 to 2021.
