Advanced Materials: 2017 Taxonomy Update

May 5, 2017 | State of the Market Report

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.

Coverage Areas

  • Accelerating Materials Innovation
  • Advanced Materials
  • Emerging Ecosystems in Agrifood and Health
