Superhydrophobic Coatings Market Driven by Increasing Demand from Consumer Electronics Industry

Superhydrophobic coatings are a naturally occurring phenomenon in which the topography of a surface contains projections to minimize its contact with water. This keeps the surface free from water and the various complications that can arise as a result of that. This includes the growth of molds and several other microorganisms, and the risk of degenerative chemical reactions such as oxidation.


Multiple plants use naturally occurring versions of superhydrophobic coatings to keep their leaves free from moisture; the lotus plant is the most famous example of the phenomenon. Human efforts to mimic this phenomenon have picked up speed mainly after the development and establishment of nanotechnology, which has allowed us to construct superhydrophobic coatings at the nano scale.

Increasing Demand from Consumer Electronics Industry Drives Superhydrophobic Coatings Industry


In recent years, the global consumer electronics industry has been driven at a robust rate by the increasing disposable income of consumers in developing regions and the improvement in the services offered by consumer electronics, which has served to expand the industry’s target customer base. Waterproof consumer electronics are becoming a standard in the industry, particularly regarding portable devices such as smartphones and tablets. This is a major driver for the demand from the global superhydrophobic coatings market, as the consumer electronics industry is expected to expand steadily in developing economies in Asia Pacific and Latin America in the coming years.


Superhydrophobic Coatings could Revolutionize Solar Power Industry


Solar power is a crucial part of the global alternative energy scenario and is becoming popular around the world. However, a major restraint on the solar power market is the drop in efficiency brought about by the presence of even thin layers of dirt, which can significantly reduce the solar energy reaching the cell. Regular washes are the most commonly used solution against this, but allocating that much water to solar power is not feasible in regions such as the Middle East, which receives high amounts of sunlight but lacks fresh water. As a result, superhydrophobic coatings are being considered for use on solar cells, where they would actively prevent dirt particles from settling on the cell. This is a major opportunity for the global superhydrophobic coatings market in the coming years.
