In this era of science where we want things to get more durable and affectless from outer element like corrosion, wear, water, friction, biofouling etc, in this which reduction of wettability is an important phenomenon. we try to mimic water repellence property from our nature to reduce contact with water like a lotus leaf, rose petal, cicada wings etc, this effect is known as superhydrophobicity. In this paper, we have discussed a general introduction about superhydrophobicity and will focus on its application in different fields. In this review paper, there are a lot of examples of coatings that are made by different researchers. We have discussed extensive area of application of superhydrophobicity like corrosion reduction, marine industries, aeroplane industry, self-cleaning, anti-icing, wear resistivity etc.
