A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on hydrophilic coating market provides an in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as regional hydrophilic coating market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional hydrophilic coating market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of global hydrophilic coating market. According to the report, the global hydrophilic coating market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
Hydrophilic coating is used to reduce surface friction and
improve lubricity. These coatings absorb water and comprise more than 90% water
when wet. They find applications in medical, automotive, electronics and
several other end-use industries. These coatings are used on bathroom mirrors,
eyeglasses, optical lenses, covers for headlights, outdoor floor lights,
automotive mirrors, instruments in humid environments and other vehicle windows
and several others.
The increasing application of the hydrophilic coating in the
medical sector is driving the growth of the market. The major factor
contributing to the growth of the hydrophilic coating market is its increasing
application to coat instruments such as catheters, cannulas, guidewires, and
short-term implanted devices. In addition, the growing demand for less invasive
medical procedures is increasing the application of a hydrophilic coating. They
are used for coating medical equipment and needles as it greatly reduces
friction between the equipment and the patient’s skin. Thus, lowering the pain
and unnecessary discomfort. Furthermore, the rising applications of these
coatings on automotive mirrors and in several electronic applications owing to
the several benefits offered by the hydrophilic coating promote the growth of
this market. These coatings are durable, antifogging, easier to clean and
accumulates less dirt. However, the high cost of hydrophilic coating hampers
the growth of the market. Moreover, rising applications of hydrophilic coating
for several biomedical types of research creates fruitful opportunities for
Geographically, North America is the dominant region in the
global hydrophilic coating market. The increasing use of hydrophilic coating
for medical applications drives the growth of the North America hydrophilic
coating market. The rising geriatric population, high-income levels and
increasing demand for less invasive medical procedures favor the growth of the
North America hydrophilic coating market over the forecast period. Asia Pacific
region is anticipated to grow at the highest rate over the forecast period
owing to the growing applications of the hydrophilic coating across end-use
industries such as automotive and electronics. In addition, the rising
automotive sales contribute in this region contributes to the growth of the
Asia Pacific hydrophilic coating market.
