The Global Market for Hydrophobic, Superhydrophobic and Oleophobic Coatings and Surfaces

The Global Market for Hydrophobic, Superhydrophobic and Oleophobic Coatings and Surfaces

There has been significant recent research and commercial activity in hydrophobic, superhydrophobic, oleophobic and omniphobic (HSO) coatings that demonstrate the ability to shed fluids quickly off of surfaces. Superhydrophobic sprays applied by the consumer are available in a number of markets including textiles and architectural coatings.

They are characterized by very high water and oil contact angles and are applied to a wide variety of surfaces and substrates, imparting anti-fingerprint, anti-soil, anti-fouling, self-cleaning, anti-icing, anti-microbial, easy-to-clean and anti-corrosion properties. Other properties that have been incorporated include transparency and colour, anisotropy, reversibility, flexibility and breathability (moisture vapor transfer).

Hydrophobic, superhydrophobic and oleophobic coatings offer a multitude of industrial benefits including:

Consumer electronics
Anti-fingerprint coatings for optical surfaces such as displays and touch panels.
Coatings that self-clean themselves from contamination by fingerprints, greasy smudges, makeup and other natural oils that are otherwise difficult to remove and which significantly deteriorate the view and appearance.
Hydrophobic and olephobic precision optics.
Encapsulation of moisture- and oxygen-sensitive electronics, such as OLED (organic light emitting device) lighting and displays, quantum dot films, photovoltaics, and flexible electronics.
Printed circuit board and semiconductor/semiconductor packaging.
