Research and Markets has added a report on "Nanostructured Coatings: Applications and Markets to 2015" to their catalogue.
In 2009, the global market for nanoscale coatings and thin films accounts to an approximate amount of $2.4 billion dollars. By 2016, it is estimated to increase to $13 billion dollars. The major current markets include exterior and interior household protection, aerospace and automotive protection such as self-cleaning, anti-fouling, self-healing, easy-clean, conductive, scratch-proof, and dirt-resistant coatings, and textile protection such as bacteria and anti-stain coatings
The markets predicted to have rapid growth rates in 2016 is textiles, medical, interior and exterior household protection markets due to the huge demand for repellent and protective coatings. Conductive carbon nanotube coatings have potential applications in electronics and automotive industry and this will .definitely continue to grow.
The report provides information about the major markets for nanocoatings such as automotive, consumer goods, electronics, packaging, aerospace and defence, textiles, building and construction, household care, and healthcare. Breakdown of revenues by nanomaterials and markets; key market players, nanocoatings products by markets and application profiles of over 100 nanocoating companies are also included. Marketing applications for coatings with features such as thermal insulation, conductivity, easy clean, stain repellency, anti-fogging, scratch resistance, photocatalysis, barrier, anti-corrosion, anti-microbialism, smartness, and self-cleaning forms another section of the report. Key nanomaterials for thin films and coatings; and more than 140 tables and figures about nanocoatings are a part of the report.
