Two-dimensional (2D) ferroics, including ferromagnets, ferroelectrics, ferroelastics, and multiferroics, recently have been theoretically proposed or experimentally revealed. The research has attracted tremendous attention because of the novel physics and promising applications for nanoelectronics, revealing ferroics in the 2D limit. In the present Perspective, we comprehensively review the recent research progress and also the proposed applications of 2D ferromagnetic, ferroelectric, and ferroelastic materials from theoretical and experimental viewpoints. We then introduce the coupling between ferroic orders and highlight the latest research on 2D multiferroic materials. The promising research directions and outlooks are discussed at the end of the Perspective. It is expected that the comprehensive overview of 2D ferroic materials can provide guidelines for researchers in the area and inspire further explorations of new physics and ferroic devices.
