Global Functional Polymer Market: Notable Developments

  • According to a new study, polymer-based Nano medicine can revolutionize the treatment of cancer in the near future. As per the study published in the Journal of American Chemical Society (JACS), polymer and Nano medicine combination results in negligible immunotoxicity and high level of therapeutic performance for cancers. Researchers in the study developed a theranostic supramolecular polymer using β-cyclodextrin as the host. This advanced potion delivered superior ant metastasis capability, and antitumor performance. This development can propel the functional polymer market significantly, thanks to a growing number of cancers worldwide.
  • Polymer based techniques are widely being experimented in the medical sector. A recent study has paved way for artificial limbs, guided by light. A new polymer based material mechanism enables shrinking of materials and changes in shape as needed. The study presented at American Chemical Society’s national meeting, the researcher said, they can apply the new polymer in any 3D network and turn it into a stimuli-responsive material. Growing research and development activities such as these driven by growing interest in polymers are expected to create significant opportunities for many players in the functional polymer market.
