Smart coating is the future of the coating industry. Smart coatings are able to sense the environmental changes such as temperature and stress and respond to the same. The market has gained importance as smart coatings can improve a system’s efficiency by reducing maintenance costs, inspection times, and equipment downtime. These functional coatings are used to reduce the maintenance cost of materials by providing extended life to the components. For instance, corrosion is the most common problem; it causes billions of dollars damage on yearly basis. Smart anti-corrosion coatings are used for addressing the causes of corrosion and inhibiting corrosion by enabling pH-activated release of self-healing capability and triggering microcapsules in smart coatings. On the other hand, ice accumulation is a serious issue in cold climates, and more than 5% of annual production loss is due to icing in such climates. Smart anti-icing coatings reduce costs associated with ice accumulation.

There are six major functions of smart coatings, namely:

  1. Anti-corrosion
  2. Self-cleaning
  3. Antimicrobial
  4. Antifouling
  5. Self-healing
  6. Anti-icing
  7. Anti-fingerprint

Growing urbanization, and increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive & transportation, marine, aerospace & defense, and building & construction are the important drivers for the global smart coatings market. The demand for superior performance, extended product life, and reduction of maintenance cost are leading to the advancement of smart coating products. The advancement of smart coating products will bring substantial business opportunities in the years to come. Smart coating companies are investing in R&D to develop innovative products to earn a competitive advantage and ensure sustainable growth at the core of the companies’ strategy.

The webinar would also highlight the impact of the developments, regulations, and trends on the overall market, and on the future growth.
