The five major components of Material Design UI are:

1.Theme

Customize the look of the app theme according to your brand identity with a color palette you control. You can tint the action bar, animations and the status bar using theme

2. List and Cards

Display important pieces of information inside cards that have a consistent look and feel

3. View Shadows

Material design introduces elevation for UI elements. Elevation helps users understand the relative importance of each element and focus their attention to the task at hand

4. Animations

Animations in material design give users feedback on their actions and provide visual continuity as users interact with your app. The material theme provides some default animations for buttons and activity transitions. You can create custom animations for touch feedback in UI controls, changes in view state, and activity transitions

5. Drawables

Vector drawables scale without losing definition. You need only one asset file for a vector image, as opposed to an asset file for each screen density in the case of bitmap images
