Anti-Mar Coating Materials Market and Supply Chain Development
Cover lenses are an exterior component of smartphones or tablets that come with a built-in projected capacitive touch sensor. To sense the capacitance changes of sensors, a finger is placed on or near the sensor. But sticky or sweaty finger tips can leave smudges and fingerprints on cover lens surface and thus affect the user experience. To prevent this from happening, cover lens manufacturers deposit an anti-mar coating material that bonds with the surface of a cover lens using PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) or spray process. This report outlines the development of anti-mar coating materials used for cover lenses of smartphones, tablets and eyeglasses; examines market development and supply chains of those materials.
