Multifunctional Smart Coatings & Surfaces Market Discussed in New n-tech Research Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com02 May 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The next ten years are poised to witness impressive new business revenues produced by smart coatings that display manifold functionalities. Actually, multifunctional coatings and surfaces are reaching the commercialisation stage. Thus, in the construction world, it is now possible to make smart windows that amalgamate self-healing, auto-dimming and solar power generation into a single insulated glass unit (IGU). In the aerospace domain, several smart surfaces have the ability to monitor the structural integrity of wings and fuselage and then make modest repairs automatically. In healthcare, the elaboration of coatings with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects is of obvious significance.
A number of multifunctional coatings have already entered the market, while others are not all set peak time. Much the same can be applied to tools, where there is presently a host of fabrication approaches towards developing multifunctional surfaces – although some of them are not yet capable of covering the vast areas required, for instance, by the walls of buildings.
New research report “Multifunctional Smart Coatings and Surfaces: 2016-2023” prepared by n-tech Research analyses the market for the emerging group of multifunctional smart coatings and associated surfaces. The report provides a technological roadmap for multifunctional smart coatings and surfaces; explores how the technologies and applications in the sector will likely to develop over the next decade. It gives an assessment of the combinations of functionalities that are poised to succeed the most in the market. The study also gives insights into the most marketable combinations of functionality for each industry sector in question. The report presents detailed profiles of the leading players – dominant specialty chemical firms, start-ups and glass companies, engaged in the development of multifunctional smart materials. It also examines how supply chains are developing for their products and where key R&D projects appear to be leading as regard to commercialisation. For each of the various end-user sectors, the report presents 8-year market forecasts; specifically, it uncovers what smart functionality combinations are expected to be the most productive with respect to revenue generation.
Market forecasts include detailed projections of revenue and volume, broken down by end-use sector, type of functionality and product, and material and technology.
