In modern times, the electronics are being made stretchable so that they can be used for applications which require them to be reshaped, and get accommodated according to specific shape as well as the reliability of devices which are subjected to strains gets improved due to the use of such stretchable materials. The materials which can be electrically triggered so that they can be reshaped are stretchable conductive materials. The stretchable conductors posses’ excellent conductivity under the large tensile strain and are transparent in visible lights. These materials are used extensively in healthcare and energy applications. They are used in medicines as a component in wearable robots in order to detect the diseases. Moreover, they are also used for detection of glucose level, temperature, and humidity in the human body and for implementing minimal invasive surgeries in hospitals. Apart from medicines, the stretchable conductive materials are also used as carbon-based materials such as stretchable supercapacitors and carbon nanotubes due to their excellent electrical conductivity and high surface areas. The global market of stretchable conductive material is significantly influenced by the growing demand of carbon based materials such as carbon nanotubes which are widely used in various applications such as integrated circuit, emission display, solar photo voltaic cells, fuel cells and emission display among other applications. Moreover, other factors such as technological advancement in industrial applications and growing adoption of the stretchable electronics in the industrial sector due to their improved operational speed also impact the growth of the market across the globe. The technological advancements are being made in assembly techniques, materials and design strategies in order to develop miniature versions of the products. However, some stretchable circuits can have lower life span and the manufacturing process of stretchable can be time consuming as well as laborious which pose some restraints to the market growth. The global market of stretchable conductive material is expected to grow particularly in the region of Asia Pacific on account of expansion of electronics industry as well as rising adoption of wearable devices in the bio medical applications.
