Bioﬁlms affect many industries and our daily lives. Their formation and growth processes have common essential factors, but some of their components differ from one environment to another. Bioﬁlms have a negative side in that they cause many problems. However, on a positive note, they provide beneﬁts if used properly and effectively. Therefore, it is very important to be able to control bioﬁlm formation and growth. In this chapter paper, we describe future trends for the research and applications of bioﬁlms and the types of results that we can expect.
