Surface degradation issues caused by wetting and moisture exposure on surfaces that must be dry, such as display screens, fabrics and so on, have triggered the development of technologies in superhydrophobic coatings. These coatings ensure that surfaces remain completely dry by repelling water, liquids or other particles, as well as protect surface properties from degradation. There is an increasing adoption of superhydrophobic coatings across a variety of industrial sectors ranging from pipes to packaging or even garments to gadgets. This briefing will explore how superhydrophobic coatings can be used to address important issues faced due to moisture damage and what are the key success factors and opportunities are in this market.

The presentation seeks to highlight:

  • The technology and product developments in superhydrophobic coatings
  • Factors that propel development of superhydrophobic coatings
  • Identification of market sectors and sub-sectors poised for expansion
  • Opportunities and key success factors in this business

This briefing will benefit technology providers, researchers and product developers, as it will discuss the emerging technology and product trends for superhydrophobic coating and provide future expansion sectors in order to increase their adoption. An interactive Q&A session will also follow after the presentation.

"Preparing either moisture-free or water repulsive surfaces has been a challenge for the material developers of windshields, window panels, optical displays or touch-screens, among other products," said Frost & Sullivan's Technical Insights Industry Manager Aravind Chander V. "Thanks to technological advances in superhydrophobic coatings and their promising potential not to just repel water, but also self-clean surfaces making them 100 percent waterproof, they can now protect surfaces and extend the product's life. According to Frost & Sullivan's research, it is expected that superhydrophobic coatings will see an increased adoption in sectors like textiles and healthcare in the next two to three years."
