Summary
The smart polymers industry has gained momentum in the past decade.Smart polymers are a branch of conventional polymers, but the characteristic of bio-mimicking differentiates them from conventional polymers.

These very bio-mimicking characteristics are the reason smart polymers are under research and development for applications in biomedical and bioengineering fields. Other areas where smart polymers are used today include food packaging, coatings, fabrics, sensors and actuators, and electronic and automotive components.
