Stimuli-responsive polymers, which are also called “smart polymers,” are a group of high-performance materials that can change their physical and chemical properties in response to external stimuli like temperature, humidity, pH, or electric and magnetic fields. These materials are also called “smart materials.” Intelligent polymers include Poly-N-Isopropylacrylamide (PNIPAAm), chitosan, polythiophene gels, polythene glycol copolymers, and some polypeptides.
Smart polymers are smart, adaptable materials that can be used for different things, like detecting and acting. Also, these materials can keep their original properties and heal themselves even though they can react to stimuli.

Some of these smart materials, like polyacrylamide derivatives and chitosan, are also called “dual stimuli responsive” because they can react to more than one stimulus, like both temperature and pH.
Smart polymers are used to make fabrics that can withstand harsh environmental conditions and adapt to their surroundings. Based on how these materials react to different stimuli, they can be used to make temperature-sensitive, shape-changing, color-changing, pH-responsive, and electronic textiles.
Increasing demand for polymers that respond to physical stimuli
Most of the market is made up of polymers that respond to physical stimuli. These materials are very sensitive to changes in the environment, such as in ultrasonic waves, electric potential, temperature, UV rays, and magnetic fields. The growth rate of the smart polymer market is likely to be driven by the growing demand for polymers that respond to physical stimuli.
Surging usage in drug delivery system
Smart polymers are used a lot in drug delivery systems because they keep the level of drugs stable in the therapeutic window, make patients more likely to take their medicine as prescribed, and let doctors check the level of medication. The growth of the smart polymers market is expected to be driven by a rise in the importance of synthesis and design of effective drug delivery systems in health care.
Smart polymers are becoming more popular because they have good qualities.
Smart polymers have good qualities like being flexible, tough, resilient, and safe for living things. These polymers are hard to damage or break down. These things have made it easier for many industries to use smart polymer in their most important applications. So, smart polymers are used to make smart materials like phase-change materials, smart textiles, sensors, actuators, and a lot more. The smart polymers market is likely to grow because more and more people want these products.
Smart polymer is in high demand in many industries
Smart polymers are used in many different ways. For example, these polymers are used to make sensors and actuators, hydrogels, and packaging that breaks down over time. Smart polymers are also used a lot in healthcare and biomedical engineering, which gives the smart polymer market a lot of room to grow.
Increase focus towards expansion
To get a competitive edge in the smart polymer market, most of the big companies are shifting their attention to making new and innovative products and increasing their production capacities. Market growth is also expected to be helped by the growing number of partnerships for making advanced smart polymers.
Smart polymer’s possible side effects
Smart polymers are very bad for people’s health, which is likely to slow the rate of growth of the smart polymer market over the next few years. Health risks include skin flushing, stomach upset, coughing, and damage to the kidneys.
Also, problems like thermosensitive polymers with high burst drug release, the lack of biocompatibility of the polymeric system, the low mechanical strength of the gel, which could lead to dose-dumping, and the gradual decrease of pH of the system due to acidic degradation are major factors that slow the growth rate of the market.
