The Market for Anti-Fingerprint Nanocoatings will grow Significantly in the next Decade

Touch-based technology has lead to a high demand for clean surfaces presenting a perfect, hygienic optical appearance insensitive to fingerprints. As a result, the market for anti-fingerprint nanocoatings will grow significantly in the next decade. Transparent anti-fingerprint nanocoatings also find application on stainless steel surfaces and plastics for designer surfaces in car interiors and households. Main markets include:


  • Anti-reflective films
  • Optical filters
  • Ophthalmic lenses
  • Mirrors.
  • Laser optical windows
  • Camera lenses.

Interiors (Household Kitchens, Catering, Food Processing)

  • Surfaces of metalized plastic or stainless steel (such as on ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators)
  • Treated glass
  • Earthenware
  • Ducting.

Electronic Displays

  • Liquid crystal displays
  • Plasma displays
  • Handheld electronic devices.


  • Windows/mirrors
  • Interior surfaces

According to Toray Industries, if effective anti-fingerprint coatings technology can be commercialized, a market will be created on the scale of an annual coating area of 6,000,000 m2. Companies developing anti-fingerprint nanocoatings are mainly based in Germany, the United States, Japan and South Korea. Main players are large multi-national glass, chemicals and coatings companies. There are also a number of SMEs, mainly based in Germany with reasonable revenues in this and other nanocoating markets.

Market Report Contents Include:

  • Market assessment for anti-fingerprint coatings in automotive (displays, glass), construction (rails, exterior steel surfaces), electronics (touch panels), interiors (kitchens, decorative surfaces, glass, catering, food processing and military sectors (touch panels).
