Global Market for Anti-Fingerprint Nanocoatings - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mwzxgs/the_global_market) has announced the addition of the "The Global Market for Anti-Fingerprint Nanocoatings" report to their offering.

Touch-based technology has lead to a high demand for clean surfaces presenting a perfect, hygienic optical appearance insensitive to fingerprints. As a result, the market for anti-fingerprint nanocoatings will grow significantly in the next decade. Transparent anti-fingerprint nanocoatings also find application on stainless steel surfaces and plastics for designer surfaces in car interiors and households. Main markets include:

Optics

- Anti-reflective films

- Optical filters

- Ophthalmic lenses

- Mirrors.

- Laser optical windows

- Camera lenses.

Interiors (Household Kitchens, Catering, Food Processing)

- Surfaces of metalized plastic or stainless steel (such as on ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators)

- Treated glass

- Earthenware

- Ducting.

Electronic Displays

- Liquid crystal displays

- Plasma displays

- Handheld electronic devices.

Automotive

- Windows/mirrors

- Interior surfaces

According to Toray Industries, if effective anti-fingerprint coatings technology can be commercialized, a market will be created on the scale of an annual coating area of 6,000,000 m2. Companies developing anti-fingerprint nanocoatings are mainly based in Germany, the United States, Japan and South Korea. Main players are large multi-national glass, chemicals and coatings companies. There are also a number of SMEs, mainly based in Germany with reasonable revenues in this and other nanocoating markets.

Market report contents include:

- Market assessment for anti-fingerprint coatings in automotive (displays, glass), construction (rails, exterior steel surfaces), electronics (touch panels), interiors (kitchens, decorative surfaces, glass, catering, food processing and military sectors (touch panels).

- Market revenues through to 2025.
