The South America electroactive polymers market is expected to grow from US$ 185.16 million in 2019 to US$ 245.08 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2020 to 2027. Electroactive polymers are capable of changing size and shape when subjected to an electric field. Owing to this ability of changing size and shape, they are being used in a wide range of applications. Superior redox activity, conductivity, synthetic versatility, and other mechanical properties of electroactive polymers render them fit for use in batteries and electrochemical capacitors. They are being explored for their use as electrodes in batteries due to their ability to undergo reversible reduction and oxidation. Actuators and sensors are the major applications of electroactive polymers, and as these devices are used widely in many electronic devices and equipment, these polymers have wide application in industries such as healthcare, power generation, and electronics. Electroactive polymers are lightweight, low cost, and low driving voltage materials that have increasingly high demand in the automation and electronics industries. As compared to conventional motion-generating devices, these polymers offer enhanced efficiency, reduced wear and tear, and lower power consumption features to actuators and sensors, among others, along with decreasing their costs. These polymers have a wide potential in biotechnological applications such as active catheters, (bio)sensors, actuators, biomechanics, artificial muscles, and drug-delivery systems, mainly due to their simple processability, down-scalability, and low specific gravity.

South America, especially Brazil, witnessed an unprecedented rise in number of COVID-19 cases, which led to the discontinuation of electroactive polymers manufacturing activities; other chemical and materials manufacturing sector has subsequently impacted the demand for electroactive polymers during the early months of 2020.Moreover, decline in the overall manufacturing activities has led to discontinuation of electroactive polymers components manufacturing projects, thereby reducing the demand for electroactive polymers.

Similar trend was witnessed in other South American countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Peru, and Chile. However, the countries are likely to overcome this drop in demand with the economic activities regaining their pace, especially in the beginning of 2021.

The inherently conductive polymers segment led the South America electroactive polymers market based on type in 2019.The inherently conductive polymer is a family of specialty conductive thermoplastic compounds, which fulfill uniform and precise surface resistivity throughout a resistivity spectrum from strong electrostatic discharge to strong anti-static.

These polymers are quite suited for disk-drive components, wafer processing, and cleanroom applications.They are advantageous in automotive applications that need static discharge protection, like fuel system components.

Other automotive uses of these polymers are body attachments, including mirror housings, door handles, bumpers, wheel covers, fenders, and interior parts.
