Bioinspired and Nanoengineered Surfaces Market

  1. 1. Bioinspired and Nanoengineered Surfaces:Technologies, Applications and GlobalMarketsOver the past decade, bioinspired structures—ranging from various plant leaves, to insects, gecko feet, crustaceans,and even butterfly wings—have been the subject of intense scientific scrutiny. In many cases scientists haveunraveled and replicated the underlying physics and chemistry of these intriguing structures, leading to the prospectof designing artificial ”nanoengineered” surfaces (NES) suitable for a multitude of commercial applications. Initiallythese novel surfaces are being explored specifically in terms of managing their interactions with liquids, vapors,solids, and light.Purchase a copy of this report @ surfaces promise to improve numerous industrial processes as well as a variety of consumerproducts. For example, commercially existent self-cleaning glass products—which rely onsuperhydrophilic/photocatalytic coatings—are already generating significant revenues. Within the next five yearsother anticipated commercial market developments range from: Biomedical—hospital and personal care antibacterial treatments, and anti-biofouling marine coatings. Automotive—water/dirt/insect repellent, and antifrost, antifog, and antireflective surface treatments. Aviation— de-icing and aerodynamic/fuel-saving metal protection coatings. Building and Architectural Materials—self-cleaning glass and cement, and anti-glare aluminum and plasticbuilding products. Electronics—superhydrophobic waterproofing and oleophobicity for hearing aids, mobile communicationdevices, and nanotextured LCD panels for retail displays. Energy—long shelf-life batteries, fuel cell components, HVAC heat exchanger coils, oil and gas flowequipment lubricants, oil/water separation and remediation, rigid and flexible solar panels, and wind andsteam turbines. Optics—anti-reflective mobile device displays, mobile device security, flat panel glass displays andnanophotonic (non-pigmented) cosmetics. Textiles— waterproof building awnings and high-performance sports apparel. Other—self-cleaning toilets.With these impending commercial developments and their enormous business potential, BCC provides the first timelymarket report focusing on nanoengineered surfaces—where they are currently and where they might be in the nextdecade.Get complete copy of report @
  2. 2. Study Goal and ObjectivesThe primary objective of this report is threefold: Assess the current state of the art in NES technology. Identify the current market players seeking to exploit NES. Evaluate actual or potential markets in terms of specific application sectors, subsectors and projected 10-year market revenues.Methodology and Sources of InformationThis report was primarily derived from the enormous amount of technical literature relating to biomimetic andnanoengineered surfaces. This was complemented by USPTO patent analysis based on specific keywords, businessnews disclosures, investment news reports, company profiles and the latest press releases. Due to the immaturenature of this market, primary sources were not a significant source of information.Request a Sample of this report @ for more details.
