Polymer is a library for creating web components whereas Angular is a Framework, and React is a library for building user interfaces. I can't speak personally for using Polymer, but here is an article that talks about why you might want to check it out: https://home-assistant.io/blog/2016/05/18/why-we-use-polymer/. So in the sense that both React and Angular can create components, yes Polymer is similar but only in terms of creating those components, Angular has a lot of framework specific features just like React does.
