Glen Allen, VA:  Industry analyst firm n-tech Research today announced that it will be releasing its annual survey of the smart coatings market in late June of 2016. The report titled, “Smart Coatings Markets 2016-2025” provides a unique collection of market analysis and forecasting that provides companies a single source of comprehensive smart coatings data. Details of the report are available at:   The firm is offering pre-publication pricing on the report through June 24, 2016.

In advance of the report the firm has released a preview of the report titled, “ Smart Coatings in Aerospace Markets” that examines the market trends opportunities for smart coatings within the aerospace sector.  Persons interested in receiving the paper may do so by requesting a copy via the n-tech Research website at

From the paper: 

Aerospace coatings represent a well-defined segment of the coatings industry as a whole and one that is open to new types of coatings and coating processes and has embraced nanocoatings throughout the aerospace industry.  Plasma spray and 3D printing are also in use on critical parts in aircraft engines and other components. As n-tech sees it, there are no barriers to entry for smart coatings suppliers in aerospace markets based on a perceived need in the industry to adhere to traditional materials.

But the real question for firms making smart coatings is, can these coatings be sold as enabling important advantages along the dimensions of (1) safety (2) comfort (3) fuel economy (4) other operational efficiencies. As n-tech sees it, these are four established areas where aircraft manufacturers—if convinced that their use of specialist coatings can lead to demonstrable cost or performance improvements—will quickly make commitments to new coatings.

About the report:

In its report, “Smart Coatings Markets 2016-2025”, n-tech identifies the emerging market opportunities for smart coatings across a wide range of applications in consumer products, medicine and healthcare, construction, automotive, marine, energy and military areas.  The report examines the use of a wide variety of materials with self-healing, anti-corrosion, anti-fouling, self-cleaning, self-monitoring, self-assembling and other smart functionalities.  Multifunctional coatings that combine two or more of these functionalities are also discussed.

Finally, we provide a roadmap and ten-year forecast (in volume and value terms) for smart coatings in each sector covered and, where possible, we provide breakouts by materials type.  In addition, the report also assesses the R&D and marketing strategies of the leading firms that are active in the commercialization of smart coatings.  In addition, the report also examines how smart surfaces will find their place in smart environments where they must compete with embedded sensors and smart coatings.
