The Global Market for Anti-fingerprint Nanocoatings

The Global Market for Anti-fingerprint Nanocoatings November 2015

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.
