About the Report:

Details about the report, “Multifunctional Smart Coatings and Surfaces: 2016-2025” including a downloadable excerpt are available at:

n-tech believes that the coming decade will see substantial new business revenues generated by smart surfaces that exhibit multiple functionalities — notably various combinations of color shifting, antimicrobial, self-cleaning, self-healing, self-dimming glass and photovoltaics.  In most cases, these surfaces will be created through multilayer coating approaches, but in some instances, embedded sensors or special surface patterning will be used to achieve the required functionality.  There will also a growing number of smart coatings capable of delivering multifunctionality in a single layer.

This report identifies the opportunities that these trends create in the construction, automotive, aerospace. Health care, textiles and consumer products sectors.  It also assesses which combinations of functionalities will be the most successful and quantify the revenues and volume shipments of smart multifunctionals to each of the end users segments in a ten-year forecast period, with further breakouts by material type and functionality.

Companies discussed in this report include: 3M, Aerospace Technologies, AGC Automotive, AkzoNobel, Alcoa, Alenia Aermacchi, Audi, Axalta, BASF, Big Sky Technologies, BMW, Boeing, Casalgrande, Cima Nanotech, Clariant, Corning, Covestro, Crossville, Dassault, Diamon-Fusion, Dongfeng, DSM, DuPont, Essroc/Italcementi, Evonik, Faurecia, Ford, Gelest, Gentex, Green Earth Nano Science, GreenShield, Grupo Antolin, Guard, Haruna, Hawker Beechcraft, Heliatek, HzO, InspecTech, Jotun, Kansai Paint, Klingshield, Life Material, Lufthansa Technik, Luna Innovations, Mercedes, Microban, MMT Textiles, Nano Lab, NanoFlex, nanoShell, Nanosonic, Nippon Paint, Nissan, P2i, Photon et Polymers, Pilkington, PPG, PureTi, Reckli, Research Frontiers, Saab, Schoeller, Sciessent, SLIPS Technologies, Sto, Structural Monitoring Systems, Sunpartner, Toto, Toyota, Ultratech, Valspar, Vestagen and Yengfeng
