MOTIVATION

Over the past decade, bioinspired structures—ranging from various plant leaves, to insects, gecko feet, crustaceans, and even butterfly wings—have been the subject of intense scientific scrutiny. In many cases scientists have unraveled and replicated the underlying physics and chemistry of these intriguing structures, leading to the prospect of designing artificial ”nanoengineered” surfaces (NES) suitable for a multitude of commercial applications. Initially these novel surfaces are being explored specifically in terms of managing their interactions with liquids, vapors, solids, and light.

Nanoengineered surfaces promise to improve numerous industrial processes as well as a variety of consumer products. For example, commercially existent self-cleaning glass products—which rely on superhydrophilic/photocatalytic coatings—are already generating significant revenues. Within the next five years other anticipated commercial market developments range from:
• Biomedical—hospital and personal care antibacterial treatments, and anti-biofouling marine coatings.
• Automotive—water/dirt/insect repellent, and antifrost, antifog, and antireflective surface treatments.
• Aviation— de-icing and aerodynamic/fuel-saving metal protection coatings.
• Building and Architectural Materials—self-cleaning glass and cement, and anti-glare aluminum and plastic building products.
• Electronics—superhydrophobic waterproofing and oleophobicity for hearing aids, mobile communication devices, and nanotextured LCD panels for retail displays.
• Energy—long shelf-life batteries, fuel cell components, HVAC heat exchanger coils, oil and gas flow equipment lubricants, oil/water separation and remediation, rigid and flexible solar panels, and wind and steam turbines.
• Optics—anti-reflective mobile device displays, mobile device security, flat panel glass displays and nanophotonic (non-pigmented) cosmetics.
• Textiles— waterproof building awnings and high-performance sports apparel.
• Other—self-cleaning toilets.

With these impending commercial developments and their enormous business potential, BCC provides the first timely market report focusing on nanoengineered surfaces—where they are currently and where they might be in the next decade.

STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

The primary objective of this report is threefold:
• Assess the current state of the art in NES technology.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This latest technical assessment and business analysis report should prove an especially valuable resource to individuals and organizations seeking more insight into the current status of nanoengineered surfaces in terms of their stand-alone capabilities, applications, and time-to-market commercial development. The report should prove particularly valuable to development technologists, manufacturers and business investors seeking near-term commercialization opportunities, and companies interested in exploiting the unique capillary and optical interaction phenomena provided by NES.

METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES

This report was primarily derived from the enormous amount of technical literature relating to biomimetic and nanoengineered surfaces. This was complemented by USPTO patent analysis based on specific keywords, business news disclosures, investment news reports, company profiles and the latest press releases. Due to the immature nature of this market, primary sources were not a significant source of information.

ANALYST CREDENTIALS

Primarily while working as a senior scientist at Xerox Research Centre of Canada, he developed an invaluable understanding in advanced materials used in digital printing technologies such as xerography and inkjet printing. Following more recent industrial involvements with the Alberta Research Council and several local universities, his interests have evolved into the realm of nanomaterials and microsystems device integration. He has a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from McGill University and a BSc degree in Chemistry from Surrey University, U.K. His publications include more than 40 peer-reviewed technical articles, 20 patents and one technical book.

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

This report provides:
• An overview of the global market for nanoengineered surfaces, with coverage of the evolution and inspiration through biomimetics and bioinspired designs.
• Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2017 and 2018 and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2022.
• Discussion of fabrication techniques, and properties such as solid-liquid interfaces, solid-solid interfaces, solid-vapor interfaces, biological interfaces, and optical interfaces.
• Examination of applications in terms of end uses and commercial prospects in the areas of biomedical, solar energy, electronics and displays, industrial process management, metal corrosion and wear, personal care such as cosmetics and hearing aids, photonics, protective coatings, and sensors.
• Summary of U.S. assignees by invention topic in regard to patents issued and patent applications.
