Published: 3 Mar 2017

Biomimetics is the study of nature and natural phenomena. Principles of biomimetics can be for applied for technology and product development to address application specific challenges. The concept can help adoption of products with higher performance in several application spaces. In Europe, Japan, and the US. Biomimetics is being recognized as the technology of the future and there is increasing interest related to R&D and funding. Technologies inspired from sharkskin, naturally mimicked proteins, and lotus leaf phenomena have been developed for use in aerospace, marine, medical, and automotive industries. 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: Biomimetic, lotus leaf phenomena, natural resources, spider silk
