Glen Allen, VA:  NanoMarkets today announced that it will be releasing a new report on smart coatings in early January of 2015.  The report titled, “Smart Coatings Markets 2015-2022” continues the firm’s coverage of smart coatings and materials coverage that dates back to 2010.    Additional details about the report are available at: ; The report is available at pre-publication pricing on orders placed by December 31, 2014.

About the Report:

Smart coatings are coatings that dynamically adapt their properties to an external stimulus and they are of growing commercial importance.

NanoMarkets has been covering the smart coatings market for four years and believes that the market opportunities for these materials has never been better.  The firm sees revenues from these interesting materials increasing rapidly in key sectors of the economy including construction, automotive, medical, consumer electronic goods and the military.  These are all market sectors where the “smartness” and functionality of materials – rather than price – shape purchasing decisions.

This report assesses the latest technical developments in the smart coatings space.  As in previous NanoMarkets reports, this report analyzes both the relatively mature sectors of the smart coatings market (e.g., self-cleaning coatings), but in the latest 2015 report the firm has also added coverage of newer areas such as smart multi-layer coatings and smart coatings for air purification.  The report also includes NanoMarkets’ latest take on manufacturing; coating technology as it applies to smart coatings specifically.

The report also includes highly granular eight-year forecasts for all of the main market sectors where smart coatings are being – or will soon be – used. These forecasts are in both volume (square meters) and value ($ millions) terms and for each end user sector we include separate forecasts for all the main classes of smart coatings.  The report also contains a comprehensive analysis of product/market strategies and supply chain issues in the smart coating space.

Initial list of companies expected for assessment include: 3M, Aculon, AkzoNobel, Alcoa, Axalta, Bayer MaterialScience, Cardinal Glass, Castolin Eutectic, CHT Group, Corning, Dow Chemical, Dow Corning, DuPont, Gentex, Hempel, Jotun, Landec Intelligent Materials, Lonza Industrial Solutions, Lubrizol, Microtek Laboratories,Pilkington, PPG, Praxair Surface Technologies, Reactive Surfaces, Saint Gobain, Sherwin Williams, SRI International, Tristar Coatings
