Global Electroactive Polymers (EAP) Market Research: Information By Product Type (Conductive Polymers, Inherently Dissipative Polymers, Others), By The Application (Actuators, Sensors, Esd & Emi Protection, Others) - Forecast Till 2023
Electroactive polymers (EAP) are a type of elastomer (flexible, elastic polymer) that changes its shape and size when an external electrical field is applied to it. Due to this interesting property, EAPs are used in various applications including construction materials, automotive parts, plastics, and clothing.
Moreover, made using a low-cost manufacturing process, electroactive polymers are extremely cost competitive. As a cumulative result of these advantages, EAPs are extensively used in various applications such as actuators, sensors, ESD & EMI protection, drug delivery systems, robotics, and electrostatic plastics among others.

January 15, 2019 --- Pliant Energy Systems LLC (the US), a leading global company conceptualizing, patenting, and developing technologies in the fields of energy harnessing and marine robotics announced that its Velox robot, an Agile Amphibious Swimmer which was earlier confined for marine or underwater uses can now be used on lands as well.
This futuristic robot could feature a propulsion system that can recharge itself in the wind and sea waters due to its fins that are made of electroactive polymers. These fins can generate electricity by expanding and contracting. With the electrical current the material moves, much like biological muscles. The robot's biomimetic propulsion is just the beginning.
Although the natural habitat of this robot is underwater, where its surging propulsion system can keep up with any target this amazing robot soon will be the future of amphibious drones.
