This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE covers innovations on superhydrophobic coatings, low emission coatings, and anti-bacterial coatings, and other coatings. Significant breakthroughs in coating technologies toward their application as superhydrophobic coatings, low VOC coatings, and anti-bacterial coatings are seen to be driving the advanced coatings and surface technologies business. Developments in superhydrophobic coatings that can sustain prolonged exposure to sunlight and also have the ability to self-heal are key to overcome durability challenges in these coatings/materials. Further, coatings that promote usage of low VOC process and are more environmentally friendly are finding wide acceptance in packaging for food and beverages. Also, developing coatings for preventing the growth and accumulation of harmful microorganisms is a key research focus. Coatings that utilize zinc hydroxyapatite and cationic polymers are also gaining attention. 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: Superhydrophobic coatings, self-healing coatings, anti-bacterial coatings, low VOC coatings, water-based coatings, coatings with high thermal stability, regeneration coatings
