About Us

About Us

Our focus is on commercialization and the ways that companies can monetize their current and planned offerings. We have an extensive data set on the applications for smart and highly functional coatings and surfaces, as well as their underlying materials and technologies and in how they are being utilized in industry segments globally.

We provide a mix of offerings for our clients ranging from full coverage programs, to reports, forecasts and one-one client specific engagements.

Our Approach:

Our approach to analysis begins with conducting research that considers and evaluates the multiple factors that drive or hinder market performance.  We account for the current state of technology and materials, demand patterns, macro and micro trends, installed base, shipments, alternatives, and more.

We apply our decades of experience in analyzing and forecasting markets to apply a sanity check that less senior analysts often eschew in favor of excel models based on simplistic formulas that are designed to push out never-ending growth forecasts, web scraping and relying upon copy paste and AI generated outputs. .

Our products and services can be purchased as a comprehensive program, in reports, or market or product/materials specific forecasts.
