In this report we identify the opportunities that are emerging from the latest developments in hydrophobic coatings and surfaces. These include important materials based on carbon nanotubes, graphene, nanoparticulate calcium carbonate and various nanocomposites, which are slated to create a new breed of “superhydrophobic” products. The report also covers the latest developments from more conventional silicon-based hydrophobic materials as well as novel patterning approaches to creating hydrophobic surfaces.
In this analysis, the focus is on self-cleaning, anti-corrosion and de-icing, but we also examine the commercial applications for the closely related oleophobic and omniphobic materials.
In putting together this report n-tech has drawn on its extensive experience in the smart materials space as well as interviews with key companies shaping these markets. n-tech believes that this report will provide valuable insight into hydrophobic materials markets that will benefit marketing and business development executives from various parts of the supply chain, including raw material suppliers, chemical and coatings companies, glass companies, OEMs, as well as investors with an interest in the smart materials business.
Applications covered in this report include:
- Solar and wind
- Consumer electronics
- Food processing
- Water treatment
