A recent report published by
Infinium Global Research on the antimicrobial coatings market provides an in-depth
analysis of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as regional
antimicrobial coatings market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers,
restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional antimicrobial
coatings market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a
comprehensive presentation of trends, forecasts, and dollar values of the global antimicrobial
coatings market. According to the report, the global antimicrobial coatings
market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13% over the forecast period of
The global antimicrobial coatings
market was valued at USD 4.5 Billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 9 Billion
in 2028, with a CAGR of 13% during the forecast period. Antimicrobial coatings
are forms of coatings that are incorporated with specific chemicals utilized to
hinder microbes and pathogen growth through cellular membrane perturbation.
These coatings increase surface durability, and appearance, and improve
corrosion resistance, except serving their role of suppressing microbial
growth. The advancement of antimicrobial nanocoatings through green chemistry methods
is a promising way for potential environmental applications. These coatings
increase the overall lifespan of objects, as they're protected against
discoloration, odor, and other damage caused by microbial activity. It also
reduces the necessity for harsh cleaning agents and disinfectants required to
cope with stubborn microbes publically facilities. This also results in a
reduction in the environmental impact of using these cleaning agents in
buildings, especially medical facilities.
Growing concern regarding
cleanliness in various professional industries has led to the rapid development
of this industry. These are utilized to protect surfaces against
micro-organisms, which primarily include parasites, germs, bacteria, and
unwanted micro-organisms. Amid the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for
various pharmaceutical products, disinfectants, and sanitizers has increased.
This, in turn, is driving the demand for antimicrobial coatings in medical
devices application. The most important driving factor for the market is the
growing demand for antimicrobial surfaces because of the increasing numbers of
diseases and increasing demand for indoor air quality items like HVAC. In
modern society, the key issue is the growing number of diseases that are caused
by microorganisms. Increasing microbial resistance to metal ions, antibiotics,
and resistant strain growth has created awareness among the coating
manufacturers to do alternatives to standard coatings. Increasing demand for
such coatings because of the surge in the number of diseases will boost the
expansion of the market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of
products has effects on the expansion of the market. Moreover, the growing
usage of antimicrobial coatings in novel applications like COVID will provide a
big growth opportunity for the market.
An antimicrobial coating is
extremely important today in light of the COVID-19 pandemic because it's also
used on the walls, floors, and railings of hospitals and schools and
residential, industrial, and institutional countertops and is sprayed onto
masks, gloves, and other textiles. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, much
research is being focused on the advancement of antimicrobial coatings. Some
antimicrobial coatings can kill viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms.
One example of a coating approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
is Caliwel™ BNA Coating from Allistagen Corporation. This coating relies upon
has been proven effective against over 20 life-threatening bacteria, viruses,
and fungi, as per the corporate. Food contact surfaces (FCS) in food processing
facilities may become contaminated with a variety of unwanted microorganisms,
like E. coli O157:H7, L. monocytogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. To decrease
contamination and also the spread of disease, these surfaces are treated with
sanitizers or have active antimicrobial components adhered to them.
Based on the region, the worldwide
antimicrobial coatings market is segmented into the Asia Pacific, North
America, Europe, and also the Mideast & Africa. Among the regions, North
America holds the largest share of the worldwide antimicrobial coatings market.
The growing exports of medical devices, along with advancements in medical
technology are contributing to the market growth within the region.
Additionally, the presence of medical coating manufacturers in this region with
companies increasingly engaging in strategic collaborations with the
manufacturer is driving the market growth. Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region
is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate within the worldwide antimicrobial
coatings market over the forecast period.
