Global Smart Materials Market – Overview
Smart materials are designed materials which possess one or more than one property which reacts to changes in environment. The changes altered can be controlled by external factors like pressure, humidity, temperature, moisture and many others. There are a number of types of smart materials available such as piezoelectric materials, thermo-responsive materials, magneto restrictive materials, PH-sensitive materials, chromogenic and many others. In general all these materials are classified into two categories active and passive. Active materials are capable of changing their geometrical shape when forced by an external factor such as electric and magnetic fields. piezoelectric materials, magneto-strictive materials and other ER fluids are considered as active smart materials. While, passive materials lack the natural capability to transduce energy.
Due to the varied response to the external factors, these materials find wide range of applications in automotive, consumer electronics, healthcare, military and defence and many others. Smart materials integrated with sensors and micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) are deployed widely in healthcare for cure monitoring, as artificial organs, healing process , joint replacements and many others. The rising demand for piezo –electronic devices in various end-user applications are fuelling the market growth. The rising demand from structural engineering, nuclear industries and military organizations are driving the market.

April, 2018 – Researchers at Dartmouth College U.S., developed a smart ink that turns 3D-printed structures into objects that can change shape and colour. The printing material is made from integration of intelligent molecular systems into molecular gel which helps in transforming structures from nanoscale to macroscale. By using smart materials the printed objects can be reduced to 1% of their original sizes with 10 times the resolution.
Dec, 2017 – Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, U.S., developed smart walls, which are capable of responding to touch, swipes, taps and gestures. The walls are capable of adjusting the colour based on the electronic appliances working. Users can control the electronic appliances with gesture movements on walls.
