Smart coatings are coatings that dynamically adapt their properties to an external stimulus and they are of growing commercial importance.NanoMarkets has been covering the smart coatings market for four years and believes that the market opportunities for these materials has never been better. We see revenues from these interesting materials increasing rapidly in key sectors of the economy including construction, automotive, medical, consumer electronic goods and the military. These are all market sectors where the “smartness” and functionality of materials – rather than price – shape purchasing decisions.This report assesses the latest technical developments in the smart coatings space. As in previous NanoMarkets reports, this report analyzes both the relatively mature sectors of the smart coatings market (e.g., self-cleaning coatings), but in or 2015 report we have also added coverage of newer areas such as smart multi-layer coatings and smart coatings for air purification. The report also includes our latest take on manufacturing; coating technology as it applies to smart coatings specifically.The report also includes highly granular eight-year forecasts for all of the main market sectors where smart coatings are being – or will soon be – used. These forecasts are in both volume (square meters) and value ($ millions) terms and for each end user sector we include separate forecasts for all the main classes of smart coatings. The report also contains a comprehensive analysis of product/market strategies and supply chain issues in the smart coating space.NanoMarkets believes that this report will provide guidance to coatings and other specialty chemical firms, as well as firms making production equipment, and others planning to make investments in all kinds in smart materials.
