Specialty Polymers Market size in terms of volume and value 2020 by SMR Estimate
Polymers exhibiting special properties such as ability to conduct heat compared to conventional polymers are known as specialty polymers. Specialty polymers are differentiated into six types such as thermoplastic polymers, biodegradable polymers, polymer composites, liquid crystal polymers, electroluminescent polymers, and conducting polymers. They are highly in demand and exclusively employed in various end-applications such as construction, automotive, medical, electronics, cosmetics and others.
