Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Nanocoatings Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
Nanocoatings are materials which are manufactured by shrinking raw materials at the molecular level to form a denser product. Nanocoatings are preferred over traditional coatings due to their lower VOCs content. In addition, nanocoatings have characteristics such as scratch, UV, chemical resistance, low maintenance, anti-corrosion and color and gloss retention among others. Nanocoatings are classified as anti-fingerprint, anti-microbial, anti-fouling and easy-to-clean, self-cleaning (Bionic and Photocatalytic) and others (specialty coatings, etc.).
Anti-microbial is the most used nanocoating across various end-users. Anti-microbial nanocoatings are used by end-users such as medical and healthcare, water treatment, food manufacturing and packaging. Anti-fouling and easy-to-clean nanocoatings are the second largest market for nanocoatings and find applications in marine, food manufacturing, automotive and electronics among others. Anti-fingerprint nanocoatings are expected to grow in the near future due to increasing demand from the electronics, automotive, medical and healthcare. Other types of nanocoatings find applications in buildings & construction, packaging and textiles.
The global nanocoatings market is growing owing to the huge demand from medical and automotive coatings industry. Growth in the coatings sector coupled with rising demand, urbanization in BRIC countries has been driving the global nanocoatings market in the past few years. Additionally, European governments have stringent regulations associated with coatings industry due to VOCs content.
Nanocoatings offer environmental benefits due to low VOCs in it resulting in more demand in upcoming years. However, the health and environmental concerns is likely to hamper the growth of the nanocoatings market. Increasing application scope of smart coatings market coupled with growing electronics and automotive industry in India and China are expected to open opportunities for the growth of the market over the coming years.
Anti-microbial nanocoatings were the majorly consumed nanocoatings in the market in 2012 and accounted for around 29.6% of the global demand. Anti-fouling and easy-to-clean nanocoatings were the second largest consumed nanocoatings in the market. They are expected to grow within the forecast period on account of their increasing usage in end-users such as industrial engineering, marine, food manufacturing, automotive and energy among others.
Anti-fingerprint nanocoatings are expected to be the fastest growing over the forecast period due to rising demand from electronics, medical and healthcare. Demand for other nanocoatings such as specialty coatings is expected to be steady due to a substantially higher demand from other nanocoatings in the near future.
