The Global Market for Anti-Fingerprint Nanocoatings
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:
Laser optical windows
INTERIORS (Household Kitchens, Catering, Food Processing)
Surfaces of metalized plastic or stainless steel (such as on ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators)
Liquid crystal displays
Handheld electronic devices.
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.
