Nanoemulsions have a high potential for development and adoption in the next 2 or 3 years as the delivery vehicle has a number of stakeholder initiatives focused on commercializing new technology innovations. The top markets to focus on in the short term are drug delivery, food and beverages, and cosmetics and personal care as there are a number of research and development initiatives by major technology developers. Innovations in these application areas are expected to be commercialized in the next 2 to 3 years. Drug delivery applications of nanoemulsions have the highest intensity of research and development initiatives, but there is also a rise in commercialized innovations for cosmetics and personal care and new research initiatives in the food and beverages sector. This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE provides an overview of the nanoemulsions adoption trends across drug delivery, food and beverages, and cosmetics and personal care products applications. Emerging opportunities and major stakeholder developments across these application sectors are highlighted.
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.
