Antibacterial Glass Market Analysis

Antibacterial glass has been known to prevent transmission of fungi and bacteria. It will prove efficacious against bacteria, including Escherichia Coli, Staphylococcus Aureus, and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. It can be produced by using silver or by combining both zinc and copper. Owing to the superior antibacterial properties and ability to interrupt chemical bond among bacteria cells, silver is used for the production of antibacterial glass. The silver which is used in microbial inhibition can be applicable in various forms, including silver salt, silver nanoparticles, and silver zeolite. Antibacterial glass finds its application in hospital, defense equipment, mirrors, wall covering, and touchscreen electronic goods. Processes such as coatings and infusions are used to manufacture antibacterial glass. They are particularly used in environments that require a high degree of sterility. Rise in need for sterile environment particularly in vulnerable spaces such as ICUs, geriatric wards, and hospitals is a key factor that contributes toward the growth of the global antibacterial glass market.

Key drivers of global antibacterial glass market

Increase in demand for antibacterial coating from several end-user industries such as hospital and food & beverage is anticipated to augment the growth of global antibacterial glass. Its functionality to curb the transmission of microbes makes its favorable when compared to other alternatives, thereby boosting its demand, globally. In addition, increase in pervasiveness of nosocomial infections, which cause urine tract infections, bloodstream infections, and pneumonia is projected to positively influence the growth of the antibacterial glass market. Moreover, this glass is efficient against extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL), therefore, offer a higher level of hygiene and sanitation in medical institution.

Market scenario: opportunities and challenges

Increase in need for antimicrobial glasses in consumer electronics such as phablets, tablets, and phones is expected to act as an opportunity in the near future, which will positively encourage the antibacterial glass market growth during the projected timeframe. In addition, hospitals are susceptible for bacterial growth, thus they require a pathogen-free environment. Hospital departments such as burn units, maternity wards, geriatric units, oncology, and various other surgery departments utilize antibacterial glass, which augment the growth of the global market. In addition, owing to rise in health concerns, the healthcare sector has witnessed significant development in in the recent past, and is expected to continue a similar trend over the next few years. This trend is projected to benefit the global antibacterial glass market growth. However, low market penetration along with high product price is expected to restrain the market growth. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis

Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global antibacterial glass market is expected to witness a slowdown during the next couple of years. Governments of various countries have implemented lockdown, which has led to shutdown of factories in scores of cities and provinces across the world, thus leading to predictions of a sharp slowdown in the output from commercial to industrial sector. Declining growth of the oil exploration activities is one of the key factors that is likely to negatively impact the growth of antibacterial glass market. Moreover, companies are dealing with missing sales and disrupted supply chains as production activities are shutdown. However, rise in focus of the medical sector toward new product development to counter infections and diseases is anticipated to further promote the growth of the antibacterial glass market.
