Anti-Microbial Coatings Market Outlook - 2027
The global anti-microbial coatings market was valued at $4.0 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to reach $11.6 billion by 2027. The market is projected to experience growth at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2020 to 2027.
Viruses are a group of heterogeneous organisms that feed on the host’s body. They have no metabolic activity of their own and completely depend on the host for living. Protection from virus can be achieved only when the contact with the living host is cut off. The molecular structure of a virus contains a protein coat that protects it. However, when controlled on the surface level, the virus can be contained and further spread can be prevented. Anti-microbial coatings are used for the purpose of containing the virus on the surface. Nanoparticles attack the virus’s surface and do not allow the protein formation, which cuts the further spread.
The anti-microbial coatings market is driven by increased demand for the product during the pandemic situation. The need to prevent the spread of the virus has driven the demand for anti-microbial coatings, further fostering the market growth. Moreover, high demand from indoor air/HVAC applications has also positively impacted the market growth. However, lower R&D activities and lack of demonstration proving the effectiveness of such coatings have always restrained the anti-microbial coatings market growth. Furthermore, challenges faced during the pandemic have certainly made industries aware about the importance of such coatings and opened opportunities for the industry growth. R&D activities are being carried out at deeper level and faster pace, which can result in enhanced and more reliable solutions, thereby offering wide opportunities for the industry growth.
The key players operating in the anti-microbial coatings market are Arkema SA, Nippon Paints Holdings, Co. Ltd., PPG Industries, Inc., Akzo Nobel N.V., BASF SE, DuPont De Nemours, Inc., Biomerics, Axalta Coating Systems, LLC, nano-Care Deutschland AG, Bio-Fence, and The Sherwin-William Company. The players are continuously researching and working toward finding the impact of several anti-microbial coatings on coronavirus.
Anti-Bacterial is projected as the most lucrative segment.
Anti-microbial coatings market, by type
Based on type, the anti-bacterial coatings segment dominated the market owing to its wide use. However, the same segment is expected to grow at faster pace, owing to its demonstrated effectiveness against various bacteria. Moreover, the rise in demand for these coatings during the pandemic also acts as driving factor for the market growth.
By Coating Material
Silver is projected as the most lucrative segment.
Anti-microbial coatings market, by coating material
Depending on coating material, silver dominated the anti-microbial coatings market share, followed by copper. Silver and copper have been in use for a long time as anti-bacterial and anti-microbial as they are toxic to micro-organisms. The use of silver and copper has not demonstrated any harmful effects on human beings. Therefore, this resulted in their wide acceptance for several medical purposes. Moreover, as they are abundantly present in natural, their ease in availability in large amounts also acts as the driving factor for the anti-microbial coatings market growth.
Medical is projected as the most lucrative segment.
Anti-microbial coatings market, by application
On the basis of application, the medical segment dominated the market share and is expected continue during the forecast period. This is attributed to the product’s wide use in medical products, surfaces, door handles, devices, and others that require regular cleaning and disinfection. Moreover, during the current pandemic outbreak, disinfection and regular sanitization of surfaces have changed the way the world is living. Therefore, anti-microbial coatings offer long and reliable solution by decreasing the number of disinfection and sanitization activities on per day basis.
Liquid is projected as the most lucrative segment.
Anti-microbial coatings market, by form
Based on form, liquid coatings dominated the market share. However, spray coatings are expected to drive the market growth, owing to ease of use and increase in demand from the commercial and residential sectors.
Asia-Pacific is projected as the most lucrative market.
Anti-microbial coatings market, by region
North America dominated the market share in 2019. However, rise in product demand from across the globe is expected, owing to the COVID-19 outbreak. The most affected areas in the world are anticipated to boost the demand for anti-microbial coatings as they are effective in preventing the spread of the virus. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at higher CAGR, owing to rise in demand for the product and improved healthcare systems.

Anti-microbial coatings are used to prevent the spread of microbes on surfaces. The COVID-19 outbreak has increased the demand for disinfection of surfaces on a regular basis. However, regular cleaning activities and deep level sanitization can be costly and rigorous & tiring activity. Anti-microbial coating offer protection for longer time period as it prevents surface spread of microbes. It has also proven effective to prevent the spread of hospital-acquired infections (HAI). Therefore, rise in demand for anti-microbial coatings from the medical industry as well as commercial & residential sectors, owing to the COVID-19 outbreak drives the anti-microbial coatings market growth. In addition, demand from indoor air/HVAC application also drives the anti-microbial coatings market growth. However, lack of R&D activities in the sector restrains the market growth. Furthermore, the COVID-19 outbreak has provided new opportunities for the market growth as market players are investing huge amounts in R&D activities.
