DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2022--

The “Smart Surface Market by Solution, Sector and Industry Verticals 2022 - 2027” report has been added to’s offering.

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

While largely in the R&D phase, smart surface technology will soon be productized for certain early adopter applications such as communications, heat dissipation, and various sensing solutions. Some leading companies are focused upon the formulation, application, and characterization of easy-to-clean coatings as well as the development of novel components, such as novel polymers, particles or hybrid materials therefrom.

Smart surface production involves the integration of various technologies that are aggregated into materials to provide many benefits including sensing, temperature control, signal relay, and more. Sensing and coating production are two components of smart surface material production that will be very important in many sectors including construction, energy, transportation, medical and healthcare, electronics, military and security, and others.

Initially, smart surfaces will be placed onto existing facilities such as factory walls, buildings, and other assets. Over time, smart surfaces will be integrated into manufacturing and building materials. In enterprise environments, personnel will become increasingly less aware of the presence of smart surfaces as they will be prefabricated as part of walls, desks, etc.

The anticipated expansion of smart surface technology is going to have a considerable impact on some industry verticals. The transportation industry will be a key beneficiary as smart surfaces are built into vehicles, roadways, railways, and more. The use of antimicrobial surfaces in the medical and healthcare sector is also another major growth factor for the smart surface market.

The communications industry will also benefit from smart surface technology as solutions will facilitate self-adaptable and/or reconfigurable materials that can modify radio signals between transmitters and receivers. This will enhance capacity, coverage, and security. It will also create opportunities for future applications such as positioning, localization, and embedded computing/intelligence. The addition of reconfigurable feature/functionality creates an opportunity to offer wireless-on-demand 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 humans and machines in the case of automation and IoT solutions. To accomplish this goal, the smart surface market for telecommunications and IT will leverage software-defined reconfigurable metasurfaces, controlled by integrated electronics involving edge computing and artificial intelligence.

Looking beyond smart surfaces on infrastructure, there is also a very human and highly personalized aspect of the smart surface market. There are many opportunities for human-machine interactions with smart surface market solutions as they may be constructed/configured to be sensitive to various stimuli such as touch, pressure, temperature, mechanical forces, and others.

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

Select Report Findings:

  • The overall smart surface market is poised to exceed $100 billion by 2027
  • Smart surface solutions in support of 6G networks and devices will reach $16 billion by 2035
  • Testing and simulations will be a very important to prepare for smart surfaces in wireless environments
