Global Antimicrobial Coating Market Outlook
Antimicrobial coatings inhibit the growth of pathogens such as virus and bacteria on surfaces due to which they are consumed in large quantities by healthcare and food processing industries. Healthcare and food processing industries have to ensure sterile environments, and the expansion of both sectors over the years has driven the market towards growth. By 2024, the global antimicrobial coating market is expected to attain a volume of 843 kilo metric tons at a CAGR of 9.4%.
Increasing demand for high-quality internal air purifying products, specifically in the USA, should support the market. The medical and healthcare industry has seen the maximum application of antimicrobial coatings on surgical devices. Governments in almost all countries are enforcing regulations to reduce hospital and food acquired infections; this has provided additional impetus to the market. Growing concerns about air quality and demand for HVAC systems is also likely to give the market a boost.
The indoor air quality sector is likely to be a significant market driver in years to come, especially in nations like India and China where air pollution is fast becoming a major health concern. Antimicrobial coatings are largely non-toxic, biocompatible and bio-stable, which forms another dimension driving market growth. The key driver of the market is the prevention of infection related to surgical devices or those implanted in the patients’ body. Other major consumers include textiles, marine, and construction and building industries.
