Antimicrobial Coatings Market Statistics – 2030

The global antimicrobial coatings market forecast was valued at $3.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $11.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2021 to 2030.

Antimicrobial coatings are type of coatings that are incorporated with specific chemicals used to hinder the microbes and pathogen growth through cellular membrane perturbation. These coatings increase surface durability, appearance, and improves corrosion resistance, apart from serving its role of suppressing microbial growth.          

Antimicrobial coatings play a vital role in healthcare industry. Healthcare facilities tend to face the risk of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Antimicrobial coatings help to minimize the spread and risk of microbes and germs that are usually present on high touch surface areas such as switches, doorknobs, and others, in healthcare facilities. In addition, antimicrobial coatings are used on catheters, surgical devices, medical instruments & trays, and medical electronics in order to minimize the risk of spreading infections. Other examples such as medical fabrics, gloves, surgical masks, bandages, and woven & non-woven hospital textiles, use antimicrobial coating products for minimizing the risk of healthcare associated infections. Coupled with technological advancement, antimicrobial coatings can also be used on medical implants, which is driving their demand in the global market. For instance, according to the European Centre for Disease prevention and Control, over 4 million people are acquiring HAIs, which in turn has led to death of 37,000 people annually. In order to prevent this, proper use of disinfectants and antibiotics are employed. However, use of antimicrobial coatings in the healthcare sector and equipment minimizes the risk of HAI. Antimicrobial coatings are considered an effective and potential tool against bacterial growth in the healthcare industry. All these factors collectively surge the demand for antimicrobial coatings, thereby augmenting the global market growth.

However, antimicrobial coatings pose several risks such as emission of active ingredients, release of toxic contaminants into eco-system, and others. Antimicrobial coatings tend to release active agents that further slowly enter into eco-system and in turn leads to health hazards. In addition, antimicrobial coatings based in silver, zinc, and copper tend to release toxins that are dangerous to oceanic creatures such as fish and crustaceans. Emission of active-nano ingredients and slow infusion associated with use of antimicrobial coatings further increases the risk and development of adaptive microbes and drug-resistant bacteria. 

On the contrary, vessels and equipment present in the cargo ships and passenger ships are continuously exposed to oceanic conditions such as high salt content and other harsh oceanic conditions. This in turn increases the tendency of microbial growth such as microorganisms and algae that in turn leads to biofouling of these vessels and equipment. Biofouling leads to high frictional resistance, decreases the shelf life of the equipment owing to biocorrosion, and increases fuel consumption of the ships. Bacteria and microbes tend to colonize faster on the man-made materials coupled with favorable oceanic conditions. Small colony of microbes and bacteria leads to formation of bio-film on the surface of ships that in turn leads to degradation of parts causing stimulated biocorrosion. Use of antimicrobial coatings to overcome the stimulated biocorrosion is anticipated to offer new growth opportunity in the market. 

The antimicrobial coatings market is segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of type, the market is categorized into silver-based, zinc-based, copper-based, polymer-based, and others. By end-use industry, it is classified into healthcare, building & construction, food service packaging, aviation, marine, and others.

Antimicrobial Coatings Market, By Region

The Europe antimicrobial coatings market accounted for 38.6% of the market share in 2020, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period. Increase in number of bacterial infections spreading through medical devices has escalated the medical cost associated with recovery of patients and number of deaths associated with the infections. Thus, different technologies and products are used and adopted to minimize the incidence of infections associated with medical devices. Modification of device surfaces with use of hydrophilic polymeric antimicrobial surface coatings tends to minimize the risk of adherence of microbes and bacteria on device surfaces. Polymer based antimicrobial coatings are designed to offer non-fouling characteristic on the applied surface and minimize the protein adsorption of pathogens that subsequently minimizes the microbial adhesion.

Analyst Review

The global antimicrobial coatings market is expected to exhibit high growth owing to its use in marine, aerospace, healthcare, and food packaging sector. There are several food safety regulations put forward in order to control the contamination of food items and other perishable goods that are packed. However, environmental conditions and equipment lapses are considerable factors that lead to harboring of bacteria on these packed food products. The incorporation of antimicrobial coatings on food contact surfaces supports food industry and food packaging authorities to uphold cleaner surroundings during storage, production, and delivery, and while serving packed food to the consumers or customers. Presence of bacteria acts as a catalyst for growth of microbes and bacteria, which in turn leads to illness and food spoilage in food processing and packaging facilities. 

Antimicrobial coatings are used in aviation industry to enhance and increase the hygiene and protecting surfaces in aircraft cabins. Airplanes are highly susceptible to microbial breeding owing to presence of large number of people in a confined place or area inside the airplane cabin. During boarding of airplane, bacteria and viruses tend to enter cabin environment, which in turn increase the risk of microbial contamination.

Thus, use of antimicrobial coatings play a crucial role in curbing the spread of viruses and microbes. Key-players in the antimicrobial coatings market are launching innovative products to curb the spread of COVID-19 infection that can be spread through the contact of aerospace parts such as belt buckles, armrests, and tray tables.
