Global Smart Surfaces Market Report 2021: Global Market Expected To Exceed $100 Billion By 2026 –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Report “Smart Surfaces Market by Solution, Industry and Verticals 2021-2026” has been added to from offer.

This report assesses the smart surfaces market, including technologies, materials, solutions, and applications. It evaluates supplier strategies, product and service offerings. The report also analyzes the future impact of smart surfaces on key industry verticals, including telecommunications, where they will play a critical role in supporting radio access networks for 5G, 6G and beyond.

Although largely in the R&D phase, smart surface technology will soon be produced for some early applications such as communications, heat dissipation, and various sensing solutions. Some leading companies focus on the formulation, application and characterization of easy-to-clean coatings as well as the development of new components, such as new polymers, particles or hybrid materials from them.

Smart surface production involves the integration of various technologies that are aggregated into materials to provide many benefits, including sensing, temperature control, signal relaying, and more. Detection and production of coatings are two components of the production of smart surface materials that will be very important in many sectors, including construction, energy, transport, medicine and health, electronics, army and security, etc.

Initially, the smart surfaces will be placed on existing installations such as factory walls, buildings and other assets. Over time, smart surfaces will be incorporated into manufacturing and building materials. In corporate environments, staff will become less and less aware of the presence of smart surfaces as they will be prefabricated as part of walls, desks, etc.

The planned expansion of smart surface technology is going to have a huge impact on certain industry verticals. The transportation industry will be a key beneficiary as smart surfaces are integrated into vehicles, roads, railways, and more. The use of antimicrobial surfaces in the medical and healthcare sector is also another major growth driver for the smart surface market.

The communications industry will also benefit from smart surface technology, as the solutions will facilitate the use of self-adaptive and/or reconfigurable materials capable of altering radio signals between transmitters and receivers. This will improve capacity, coverage and security. It will also create opportunities for future applications such as positioning, localization and embedded computing/intelligence. Adding a reconfigurable feature/functionality creates an opportunity to offer on-demand wireless as a service.

Future radio access networks will be highly distributed, flexible (configurable and adaptable) and software-based. RANs will be able to adapt to the environment, network and user needs, which will be both human and machine in the case of automation and IoT solutions. To achieve this goal, the smart surfaces market for telecommunications and computing will rely on reconfigurable software-defined metasurfaces controlled by embedded electronics involving edge computing and artificial intelligence.

Beyond smart surfaces on infrastructure, there is also a very human and highly personalized aspect of the smart surface market. There are many possibilities for human-computer interactions with solutions in the smart surface market, as they can be built/configured to be responsive to various stimuli such as touch, pressure, temperature, mechanical forces, etc.

Materials innovations will improve consumer wearables, improving the functionality of popular devices such as fitness and lifestyle trackers. For example, smart surfaces will benefit the electronics industry, including facilitating the ability to continuously monitor device vital signs.
