Published: 16 Dec 2016

Coatings for wearable devices are mainly based on precious metals such as silver. These coatings are very expensive and increase the overall price of the wearable devices. The recent trend is to develop of polymer-based coatings and nanocoatings that can offer unique and specialized properties and more cost-effective than precious metals. Developing coatings that are biocompatible and environment friendly is also a key focus area. The stakeholders are anticipating a steady increase in this sector owing to the significant growth of the wearables market. The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Coatings, wearable devices, precious metals, silver, polymers, nanocoatings
