Published on 2021-04-08. Author : SpecialChem

The global antimicrobial coatings market size is anticipated to reach USD 21.5 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 13.1% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.

Increasing concerns among consumers and various manufactures about cleaning and preventing the growth of bacteria, mold, and fungi on buildings, equipment, etc. are expected to drive the product demand.


Impact of Covid-19

The product demand is expected to increase in the medical devices and packaging application industry owing to the rising cases of Covid-19 around the world. The continuously growing demand for medical devices and packaging products for Covid-19 will positively affect the market. North America is expected to dominate the global market due to the presence of major healthcare product manufacturers in the region.

Silver-based biocides are widely used in medical applications owing to their excellent antimicrobial properties. Recently, a new U.S.-based othiazolin-based biocide, n-butyl-1,2-benzisothiazolin-3-one is also used as an antimicrobial agent to prevent the spread of germs. Moreover, the rising demand for implantable medical devices and the increasing burden of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) is expected to aid the overall demand over the next eight years.

On the basis of product, the global market is segmented into antimicrobial powder coatings and surface modification & coatings. The surface modification & coatings segment was the prominent product segment and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 53% in 2020. The antimicrobial powder product segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period due to the high demand for silver-based, copper-based, and other coatings.

Silver-based products are used as antimicrobial agents owing to their properties, such as non-toxicity, continual performance for a long duration, eco-friendly nature, high thermal stability, and protection against microbial growth.
