In this data set, n-tech Research forecasts the opportunity for smart surfaces markets across a wide range of applications within the European Market. Smart surfaces are most broadly defined as any surfaces that re-arrange their morphology or composition—and self-enhance their functionality—in response to changes in the ambient environment. Functionalities of smart surfaces include self-healing, self-cleaning, anti-corrosives, etc, but also sensing and collecting of information and responding to stimulus or inputs. Smart surfaces play a critical element in meeting sustainability challenges, improving performance and expanding communications and other functions interesting to markets.
n-tech Research addresses the smart coatings in a separate analysis found here.
The report examines the use of materials such as metal oxides, polymers and biomaterials and more to create smart surfaces, as well as the use of patterning technologies. Sensor types are addressed as well.
The applications addressed within the data include automotive, aerospace, construction, military, energy and medicine, electronics, communications and more.
Forecasts are presented in volume and value terms for smart surfaces and for each sector covered and, where possible, we provide breakouts by materials and sensing type.
Purchasers receive a report and Excel sheet with forecasts and tables.
Breakouts by technology, application, material or geography also available. Please inquire for details.
