Global Nanocoatings Market Valued at $1.4 Billion in 2012

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Global Market For Anti-Fingerprint, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fouling, Easy-To-Clean And Self-Cleaning Nanocoatings 2013" report to their offering.

Nanocoatings are routinely applied to a wide variety of substrate materials (plastics, glass, metals, ceramics and textiles). Due to the properties inherent at the nanoscale, the coatings are typically multifunctional, exhibiting one or combinations of the following properties: scratch and abrasion resistance, anti-static, oleophobic, easy-to-clean, anti-reflective, anti-microbial activity, sensor and catalytic activity. They are mainly used for the prevention of soiling (incrustation/clogging; protein adhesion/cell adhesion; biofilm formation); aging/degradation; and friction/wear.

Markets include:

  • Medical (Short term disposables and Long-term reusables)
  • Food manufacturing
  • Packaging
  • Textiles/ leather
  • Marine Coatings
  • Water treatment
  • Public places
  • Electronics
  • Household
  • Construction
  • Automotive/ Transport
  • Engineering
  • Energy
