Coatings Facilitating Energy Conservation and Promoting Sustainability

This research service brings out the strategic developments in the energy saving coatings landscape on a global scale. With increase in sustainability initiatives along with current influence of several environmental or green regulations has created an opportunity for coating manufacturers to develop energy saving coatings that can conserve energy costs and reduce energy expenditure, especially in building and construction domain. This research service brings out the strategic global innovations and technology developments in the energy saving coatings landscape along with a technology road map that highlights the adoption of these coatings in various sectors.

Key Findings

1. As sustainability initiatives gain momentum, importance for energy conservation along with clean energy generation has become important. Energy saving coatings can be used for promoting sustainability by helping in increasing energy conservation and reducing energy consumption, especially in buildings and construction sector.
2. While energy saving coatings have a wide application potential, their widespread adoption is seen in the building and construction industry followed by infrastructure, industrial and consumer applications. The trend is expected to continue for the next three years, mainly due to the rising sustainability initiatives across the globe.
3. Increasing the efficiency and durability of energy saving coatings will help in increasing the commercial adoption of the coatings in the forthcoming years. Research efforts related to the use of biodegradable materials including biocomposites and nanobiocomposites for development of bio-based coatings will increase their sustainability quotient.
4. While technology developments are seen across the globe, countries such as China, South Korea, USA, and Germany are leading in research developments. Research focus is currently focused on enhancing efficiency and durability.
5. Research collaborations and funding activities from government and private players in this domain are likely to facilitate faster and increased commercial product development. In addition, the intellectual property protection and expansion strategies taken up by companies will help in broadening the research database and spur creative developments.
6. Differentiating the product for specific applications, revamping innovation portfolio, and investing in specific coating developments are strategies followed by companies to manage R&D activities, and in turn, improve product development. Also, with higher revenue generation, the organization’s market share and position will improve.

Technology Snapshot

Energy conservation is one of the efficient ways of promoting energy efficiency and sustainability. Reduction of energy consumption is one of the most popular ways of energy conservation, in both industrial and commercial sectors. Use of energy saving coatings has been touted as one of the fool proof ways for energy conservation and reduction of energy consumption.

• Energy saving coatings can be in the form of paints, powder, foam, sprays or thin layer film/sheet coatings that can be applied to any targeted surface.
• These coatings can be fine tuned to reduce solar, thermal, environmental (internal and external) energy consumption, and also increase energy efficiency according to end application needs.

• Energy saving coatings can be fine tuned to enhance:
- UV absorbing properties and surface hardness.
- Thermal properties–heat reflectance, insulation and moisture penetration.
- Resistance to dirt, pollution, and so on–stain resistant
- Reduction of efflorescence
- Noise cancellation and reduction
- Resistance to chemicals and abrasion.
- Resistance to fire
• Prevention of biofilm formation.

• Could save amount spent on energy by reducing a building's cooling load and minimizing solar gain.
• Can extend life of roofing systems of buildings and construction materials.
• Can be fine tuned to emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds.
• Can increase adoption of environmentally friendly and low carbon foot print coating products.

• Low durability, resulting in reoccurring replacement of coatings.
• Lack of customized coating solutions for specific industrial applications.
• Lack of bio-based materials in coating solutions.

Energy saving coatings, like any other coatings can be either powder-based or solvent-based. In the past few years, with technological advances in nanotechnology and surface modification techniques, use of nanoscale coatings have also gained prominence. While all energy saving coatings are aimed to decrease energy costs in various applications, they can be subdivided into different types based on their specific functionality.
