DUBLIN, April 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Global Market for Nanocoatings" report to their offering.
There has been a huge increase in applications of new coatings technology over the past few years, across multiple industrial sectors. The global trend for the coatings industry is for multi-functional, decorative/aesthetically enhanced and service free or low maintenance coatings with enhanced protection. Environmental sustainability is also an important factor, especially in North America and Europe.
The nanocomposite coatings, nanostructured thin films and nanostructured surfaces (for the purposes of this report generically referred to as nanocoatings) market has witnessed substantial growth in the last decade. Nanocoatings are being increasingly applied in consumer electronics, exterior and interior protection coatings, solar panels, medicine and healthcare, automotive, aerospace, packaging and oil and gas industries. Nanocoatings can significantly increase the cost/benefit ratio of existing and new products, provide cost effective solutions and improve performance for longer periods, and are opening up new market opportunities in the global coatings sector. Commercial and manufacturing institutions globally are turning to nanocoatings to further enhance current commercial coating products or add completely new properties to existing surfaces.
Growth in the conventional coating industry has slowed in the past decade, but specialized coating surface engineering sectors are witnessing strong growth, driven by the needs of high-end industries, such as oil and gas and consumer electronics. Product innovation, increased need for protective and hygiene coatings and the need to meet stringent environmental regulations is driving market demand across a wide range of markets.
Global nanocoatings market drivers
In the coating sector, high transparency, water proofing, oxygen barrier function and enhanced protection against corrosion, heat, ice etc. are increasingly important requirements and have been driving the adoption of nanocoatings. The incorporation of nanomaterials into thin films, coatings and surfaces leads to new functionalities, completely innovative characteristics and the possibility to achieve multi-functional coatings and smart coatings.
The key element that nanocoatings provide is protection-from ice, pollutants, UV, fire, heat, bacteria, marine life, touch and corrosion. These factors cost global industry billions in maintenance, loss and downtime each year and can pose a significant public health hazard.
This new 754 page report is the most comprehensive yet published on the nanocoatings sector.
