By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “2015 Top Technologies in Materials & Coatings “ report to their offering.

The research service provides an in depth analysis of the top 10 materials and coatings technologies that are expected to have the highest impact across industries and applications. Each technology is analyzed in terms of its market potential, application segmentation, innovation landscape and IP landscape.

Key funding deals and the innovation ecosystem along with the technology development and adoption scenario are also highlighted. The research service also provides a trend analysis of the materials and coatings sector and the key challenges that are prevalent in the sector.

Innovations in materials and coatings sector is focused towards multi functionality and high performance attributes. While cost effective technologies with value for money is still prominent, reduction of raw material use and more energy efficient processes are also noticeable.

The lightweight composites technology is establishes in the automotive and aerospace sectors with its use is emerging in sectors such as offshore, transportation, oil &gas and construction market. The need for reducing carbon emissions and increasing fuel efficiency are the major factors that help in increasing the adoption of lightweight composites.

Need for materials with tunable properties and high functionality are the major factors that help in increasing the potential of polymer chameleons. The ability of the materials to react to external stimuli and retain their original shape once the stimulus is removed helps its adoption in healthcare, protective coatings and self healing structures.
