Revenue of Antimicrobial Coatings Market from 2017 to 2021 Compared to Demand Outlook for 2022 to 2032

As per the Global Antimicrobial Coatings Market research by Fact.MR - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, historically, from 2017 to 2021, the market value increased at around 9.5% CAGR.

Several factors that influence Antimicrobial products' development are the increased usage of antimicrobial coatings to restrain healthcare-associated infections, the heightened allocation of resources to create more awareness about antimicrobial-impregnated packaging to lower microbial contamination in packaged foods, and improved awareness.

For the past few years, healthcare-associated infections have been the most frequent adverse occurrence in both developed and developing nations. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that 10% of patients from developing nations and 7% of patients from industrialized countries respectively, had at least one infection related to healthcare while undergoing treatment.

Similar trends in healthcare-related ailments are also observed in North American countries. For instance, according to a study, a European study found that illnesses linked to healthcare affect over 26,09,911 persons each year.

Several universities, institutes, organizations, and producers of antimicrobial coatings in Europe joined forces in 2016 to form AMiCI, with the goal of educating people and organizations about the study and application of antimicrobial coatings to lower the risk of healthcare-associated infections.

The global market is thus anticipated to expand as a result of rising awareness campaigns and hospitals’ active involvement in lowering healthcare-associated infections through the use of antimicrobial coatings.

What Factors Are Propelling Antimicrobial Coating Demand?

The key factors propelling the Antimicrobial Coating demand are increased healthcare-associated infections (HCAI) and a rise in the number of microbes. According to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, 37,000 people die as a result of healthcare-associated infections (HCAI), which affect more than 4 million people annually.

The global healthcare industry faces a huge problem in battling illnesses related to healthcare. HCAI infections are the sixth most common cause of death in Western nations. It is far worse in developing nations.

Surfaces must increasingly be shielded from bacteria and other microorganisms. Antimicrobial coatings appear to be the best choice in this situation. Coating the surface with antimicrobial agents is an easy process that results in a longer-lasting and safer solution.

The growth in the market of Antimicrobial Coating is also fuelled as it provides, protection against microbes, and fewer disinfectants are required. Besides, they also increase the value of infrastructure and provide extended life to the structure.

Category-wise Insights

Why Medical Devices Category is projected to Witness the Fastest Growth in the Antimicrobial Coatings Industry?

Antimicrobial Coatings Market through the medical devices category is the largest revenue contributor and is anticipated to account for a CAGR of 14.4% during 2022–2032. The expansion of this market can be attributable to rising healthcare-related risks and expanding government efforts to combat diseases brought on by tainted medical equipment.

Antimicrobial coatings are used in healthcare-related associations (HAIs) to reduce the risk of infections brought on by those settings. Examples of bacteria and viruses that frequently raise the risk of HAI include MRSA, E. coli, and VRE. Even after repeated contamination and usage, products with an antimicrobial coating have a tendency to reduce the growth of bacteria and viruses in hospitals, facilities, patient rooms, medical facilities, and medical PPE areas.

Hospital beds, medical footwear, shelving units, dental trays, medication dispensers, medical drapes, furniture, shelving units, and surgical drapes are a few examples of items that use antimicrobial coatings to reduce the risk of HAIs and keep the environment clean, which is essential for patient recovery.

What was the impact of Covid-19 on the Antimicrobial Coatings Market?

Due to Covid-19, significant growth in demand for antimicrobial coatings was observed. Surface coatings, such as antimicrobial coatings, are utilized in healthcare institutions, public transportation, and other work locations to prevent the virus from spreading. Antimicrobial coatings have the power to thwart and reduce the risk of bacterial and viral infections that aim to spread the Covid -19 infection.

Depending on the climate and the surface, the SARS-CoV-2 virus is expected to live on surfaces for anywhere between 2 hours and 9 days. Additionally, SARS-CoV-2 is seen as a real hazard since it can spread through high-touch surfaces. In turn, this has inspired and enticed major market players to introduce cutting-edge antimicrobial coatings that are specially made to suppress the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

During Covid-19, the demand for antimicrobial coatings rose not only in the healthcare industry but also in the food industry. The processing and food industries are required to maintain microbiologically safe working and environmental conditions.

The coronavirus's advent has increased the demand for antimicrobial coatings, which are necessary to ensure sanitary working conditions in the food industry, packing, and delivery.

The usage of antimicrobial coatings in the food packaging sector is steadily rising, along with adherence to convective sanitation guidelines in the food industry. For better hygienic conditions, a company that packages ready-to-eat deli meat employs antimicrobial coatings. The worldwide market is driven by these factors in terms of adoption and demand.
