Smart coatings are coatings that respond to the environment. They respond to external stimuli such as dirt, light, pH changes, temperature, impact, and fatigue. For instance, in aerospace, smart coatings can indicate damage to a gas, an oil or aero engine.
Smart coatings are used in an array of end-use industries such as building and construction, automotive, military, marine, electronics, aerospace and defense healthcare, and others (others include marine, power, textiles, oil and gas, and food processing). Based on region, the market is divided into Asia- Pacific, North America, Europe, South America and Middle East and Africa. The report covers market drivers, restraints, opportunities and challenges that determine the scope of the market and its trends.
The smart coating is a booming industry and market has grown significantly during the past few years. In the next five years, it is expected to grow even more rapidly. The market has continued to expand, and new technological developments and industry changes also have taken place. A broad range of global end-use industries such as consumer electronics, aerospace and automotive will increase market demand. The superior properties of smart coatings are key factors driving growth of the smart coatings market. Also, the rapidly rising demand for self-healing coating for automotive exterior applications should also drive demand. However, the high cost of this multifunctional coating could hamper the
markets growth during the forecast period.
Sales of smart coatings products are projected to continue growing at a healthy rate during the next five years, driven by increasing demand for rearview mirrors, engine components, self-healing glass and smart windows in the automotive sector; flexible insulators, smartphones, and stretchable wearables in the consumer electronics sector; self-healing concrete, smart glass, and self-healing road surfaces for the construction sector; and wind energy, solar panels, and gas turbine coatings for power in the energy sector.
Other relevant factors that will positively affect the future expansion of the smart coatings market are as following:
- Overall improvement in global real estate and construction markets.
- Expansion of the green building sector.
- Increasing electronic content in the automobile, aerospace and marine sectors.
- Development of materials with advanced properties, such as faster switching rates.
- Introduction of new materials and fabrication methods suitable for mass production, which will also lead to reduced production costs.
- Greater market penetration of smart coating products in developing countries."
