Global Electroactive Polymers market report of 2017 provides a detailed market overview as well as industry analysis for / of companies, manufacturers and distributors covering data on gross margin, cost structure, consumption value, sale price and more.

The Report Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Electroactive Polymers Market 2017-2021

The Report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global electroactive polymers market: 3M, Agfa-Gevaert, Celanese, Covestro, Merck, and Parker Hannifin.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Sumitomo Chemical, Arkema, Solvay, KEMET Corporation, and Optotune.


Commenting on Global Electroactive Polymers Market, an analyst team said: “One trend in market is use of EAP for generating electricity. The UN estimated that tidal waves could generate 29,500 terawatt-hours of energy each year. Research projects regarding energy harvesting from tidal waves using EAP-based systems are under progress. Using EAP-based systems will lower the production costs and improve the durability of the system. They are based on deformation of EAP, which absorbs energy from the tidal waves and converts them into electricity. They are also free of any mechanical absorbers, which was a reason for the failure of many Wave Energy Conversion (WEC) devices in the past. In addition, the power generators used for the generation of electricity from tidal waves require an energy transduction technology that operates efficiently over a range of frequencies.”


The Report analysts forecast the global electroactive polymers market to grow at a CAGR of 7.45% during the period 2017-2021.

According to Global Electroactive Polymers Market, one driver in market is increased use of touchscreens. Haptic technology in electronic devices allows the users to perceive touch sensations. An actuator made of EAP, which is embedded in the device, helps in creating this touch sensation and making it more realistic. Many consumer devices are equipped with this technology. This technology is gaining prominence due to the increase in competition among the vendors catering to the hand-held device market. This is because it helps in creating differentiation and enhances customer loyalty.

Further, Global Electroactive Polymers Market states that one challenge in market is limitations associated with dielectric polymers. The use of polymers with high dielectric constants and application of high electric fields cause large forces and strains. Dielectric EAP actuators require large electric fields (~100 V/mm) and can induce significant levels of strain of up to 10%-200%. The voltages used are close to the breakdown strength of the material. Therefore, a safety factor that lowers the potential of breakdown must be used. Dielectric polymers have a low elastic modulus and tend to exhibit deformation when subjected to an intense electric field. Using such high field levels for achieving a definite polymer thickness can be disadvantageous for many applications. Therefore, polymers with high dielectric constant are required to reduce the effect of the driving electric fields. Therefore, the low elastic modulus of dielectric elastomers hinders their applications in various fields.

China Relay Market by Manufacturers, Regions (Province), Type and Application, Forecast to 2022

A relay is an electrically operated switch. Many relays use an electromagnet to mechanically operate a switch, but other operating principles are also used, such as solid-state relays. Relays are used where it is necessary to control a circuit by a low-power signal (with complete electrical isolation between control and controlled circuits), or where several circuits must be controlled by one signal. The first relays were used in long distance telegraph circuits as amplifiers: they repeated the signal coming in from one circuit and re-transmitted it on another circuit. Relays were used extensively in telephone exchanges and early computers to perform logical operations.
