The $600 million nanocoatings market will grow to more than $5 billion globally by 2013, according to a new market forecast of industrial applications for nanoscale coatings.
“Market Assessment on Nanocoatings,” published by Research and Markets, provides an assessment of industrial applications for nanoscale coatings.
Nanomaterials provide revolutionary properties that are currently incorporated into coatings to provide evolutionary functionalities such as increased scratch resistance, thermal insulation and anti-microbialism.
This already represents a significant niche market, with global revenue exceeding $600 million in 2008. Self-cleaning and self-healing coatings represent the next wave of potentially disruptive technologies that are beginning to impact the market.
By 2013 it is predicted by nanoposts that the market will exceed $5 billion.
This report provides a detailed in-depth assessment of key markets, including textiles, building and construction; market trends and drivers, divided by revenues, sectors and region; nanocomposites; and nanoscale sensors and smart materials.
