Research and Markets: The Global Market for Photocatalytic Nanocoatings Report, 2015

November 30, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “The Global Market for Photocatalytic Nanocoatings” report to their offering.

Photocatalytic self-cleaning coatings are a significant market for nanoparticulate titanium dioxide (TiO2). Nano-TiO2 surfaces (coated with 10-20nm layer of TiO2) are commercially available and have been used in (mainly in the Japanese and European markets) in water and air purification, self-cleaning glass, concrete products and a variety of coatings applications. These coatings greatly benefit building maintenance, especially for skyscrapers, as they reduce the need for costly surface cleaning. Various types of surfaces with TiO2 can be covered to make them self-cleaning under sunlight as well as room light. Thus, surfaces based on paints, ceramics, glass, cementitious materials containing active photocatalytic titania nanoparticles have widespread applications to create environmentally clean areas within their proximity.

Self-cleaning photocatalytic nanocoatings utilizing UV light are currently suitable mainly for exterior use for inorganic surfaces and coatings.

Photocatalytic materials operating at the wavelength of visible light are also widely studied. Industries impacted by self-cleaning photocatalytic coatings include:

– Architectural glass and construction (including road)

– Medical (self-disinfecting coatings)

– Food production and packaging

– Water purification

– Air purification (indoor)

– Solar coatings.
