Superomniphobic materials are materials that can repel water, oil, concentrated acid, and alkali and polymer solutions. These materials can be used in the manufacture of stain-proof and spill-proof clothing, protective garments, and other products. Key commercial applications of superomniphobic materials include self-cleaning, non-fouling, drag reduction, corrosion prevention, and liquid separation. Superomniphobic material is usually composed of rubbery plastic particles of polydimethylsiloxane and liquid resisting nanomaterials containing carbon, fluorine, silicone, and oxygen. These materials are usually applied in the form of coatings. The common method employed for the application of superomniphobic materials is electrospinning, which uses electric charge to create fine solid particles from a liquid solution. Liquids that get into contact with superomniphobic materials barely touch solid surface.
The global superomniphobic materials market is driven by the rise in demand for these materials in the textile industry. Increase in demand for high quality clothes that are spill proof and stain proof is propelling the global market for superomniphobic materials. Progress made in chemical science and technology is another important factor driving the global superomniphobic materials market. Recent advancements in nanotechnology and introduction of advanced smart materials have opened new avenues for multi-functional coatings that repel various chemicals. The rate of consumption of superomniphobic materials is on the rise in the defense sector, as superomniphobic materials can be used for clothing for military. These materials can resist corrosion and withstand severe acid and alkali attacks. Thus, superomniphobic materials protect clothing. Recent advancements in technologies are also propelling the global superomniphobic materials market. Fabrication of nanostructured omniphobic and superomniphobic surfaces can be done with the help of various materials which are inexpensive.
Based on type, the global superomniphobic materials can be segmented into water, organic solvents, high viscous liquid compounds and polymers in solvent forms. In terms of application, the market can be divided into textiles, fashion and creative sectors, medical and pharmaceutical, laboratories, and highly specific applications.
