Government initiatives to promote automobile industry coupled with the heavy investment from the global automobile manufacturers, especially in the Asia Pacific region has resulted in escalating growth of the regional automobile industry. In 2018, annual automobile production in India increased by 8% as compared to the production in 2017. Similarly, Japan, one of the leading automobile manufacturers has witnessed a growth of over 5% in the annual automobile production over the past two years.
Despite a saturated automotive industry, increasing demand for vehicles in the U.S. has increased the annual automobile production by 1.1% in the country in 2018. Increasing spending power, robust economic growth and continuously increasing demand will propel the development of automobile industry which in turn will drive SMP demand in coming years. Research and development investments from the leading shape memory polymer manufacturers for exploring the new applications of SMP in automobiles such as SMP-based vehicle seats, etc. will boost the product demand in near future.
Based on material, shape memory polymer market is classified into polyurethane (PU), acrylic, epoxy, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and others which includes PEEK, bio-PDO, polyethylene, etc. Polyurethane material segment is likely to grow at a CAGR over 25% in the forecast timespan. Polyurethane is used for the production of blood-contacting devices like artificial arteries & veins or heart valves. Rapid advancement of polyurethane based-SMP coupled with their extensive application range in the biomedical industry will prosper the growth of this segment and will be the chief factor behind its larger market share throughout the forecast timespan.
