ResearchMoz has added a new report titled, ‘The World Market for Nanocoatings’ to its list of offering. In the worldwide coatings field, nanocoatings pave the way for potential opportunities.
The use of nanostrucutred materials improves the functional properties of coatings such as ultraviolet stability, flame retardancy, corrosion resistance, mechanical, chemical and gloss retention properties.
Nanocoatings’ major end user markets are automotive, household cleaning, military and defense and construction and exterior protection. In the automotive industry, nanocoatings are used as hydrophobic, anti-corrosion and thermal barrier coatings. They have been used as anti-microbial and clean coatings in the form of after treatment sprays or pre-coats for cleaning household surfaces.
In the defense and military market, they find applications as protective fabrics for soldiers and anti-corrosion coatings for combat vehicles. It is the largest market for nanocoatings and will retain its share thanks to the ever-increasing demand of anti-corrosion coatings. Nanocoatings’ application as protective coatings in adverse conditions and pipelines will increase their sales in the gas and oil industry.
Nanocoatings may be used as a substitute for conventional coatings in the mid- to long-term in applications such as transportation, auto refinish, wood, marine, industrial production, architectural, anti-microbial, packaging and protective coatings. Nanocoatings will experience growth in almost all the sectors in the coming five to ten years, especially the food processing, household care and medical markets will grow rapidly thanks to the demand for enhanced sanitary facilities and widespread advancements offered by nanocoatings.
The report includes company profiles of more than 250 nanocoatings application developers. The report discusses several coating types including thermal barrier, flame retardant, ultraviolet resistance, self-cleaning, easy clean and anti-fouling, wear resistant, corrosion resistant, anti-scratch resistant, microbial or anti-bacterial and anti-fingerprint. The report provides forecast analysis for the market until 2017.
