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

The comany 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, healthcare, textiles and consumer products sectors. It also assesses which combinations of functionalities will be the most successful and quantifies the revenues and volume shipments of smart multifunctionals to each of the end-user segments in a 10-year forecast period, with further breakouts by material type and functionality.
