Main markets are in construction and exterior protection (mainly in anti-weathering coatings and glazing) and interior household protection for surfaces (easy clean and anti-microbial coatings).More Details
A number of multinational companies are heavily involved in developing new technologies for application across a wide range of markets and most brand owners with products related to surfaces (especially household care, paint, varnish and lacquer companies) are heavily involved in R&D; however the main thrust for innovative applications is provided by SMEs such as Nanopool, P2i, Alexium and Sarastro. Revenues will total approximately $2117.75 million (Optimistic estimate) in 2015.
The market for nanoscale anti-microbial, easy-clean and self-cleaning coatings will grow across all sectors over the next few years, with the medical, household care and food processing markets all experiencing large growth, driven by the need for improved sanitary facilities and also pushed by the vast improvements these coatings offer as germ and dirt repellers. These will find their way into brand products in supermarkets and sanitary nanocoatings are finding widespread application in Germany, Taiwan, Japan and China.
