Materials Informatics: The Next Research Revolution?

Discovery, selection, and optimization, and commercialization of advanced materials is a slow and expensive process that often fails to deliver desired results. Today's materials design software alone cannot accelerate this commercialization process and deliver better performing parts and products at lower cost. Materials informatics is an artificial intelligence technology that is now demonstrating cost savings, time savings, and performance improvement at the material and process levels. This report covers the emerging startup landscape, key case studies at the materials and process level, the application of the technology to different classes of materials, and provides strategic recommendations to companies looking to innovate across the materials-to-product value chain.

Advanced Materials: 2017 Taxonomy Update

We are updating the Advanced Materials coverage taxonomy to reflect the continually developing landscape of emerging material technologies and evolving priorities among our clients. Compared with the coverage in 2016, the current Advanced Materials taxonomy still includes three main technology branches, including Surfaces, Structures, and Future Material Platforms, but with several adjustments. We added dynamic coatings and emerging adhesives and sealants as sub-branches in Surfaces. Also, we expanded Structures to include innovations which improve insulation and flame retardancy.
