Hydrophilic coating is a type of coating, which is utilized to reduce surface friction and improve lubricity. The expression "hydrophilic" implies attraction toward water. As such, it promptly wets out when presented to moisture. Most hydrophilic coatings comprise a freely cross-connected polymer covering that will promptly take up fluid when presented to outside. This covering that surrounds the gadget behaves such as a minute sponge and the water (or other fluid) gives incredibly low contact friction as long as the covering stays wet. Gadgets covered with these coatings show pull powers as low as 3 grams and CoF esteems as low as 0.01. This undeniable degree of lubricity empowers gadgets to explore convoluted anatomical pathways while decreasing tissue irritation and adding to patient comfort.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • Owing to the outbreak of COVID-19, national and international transport has been hampered, due to restrictions imposed by several governments. This has led to demand and supply disruptions for the global hydrophilic coating market.
  • Pharmaceutical sector has witnessed a huge expansion during the COVID-19 pandemic. Technological advancements in healthcare equipment where hydrophilic coating is used is expected to provide opportunities for the market growth post-pandemic.
  • Automotive industry has been severely affected due to the nationwide lockdowns. It has hampered the automotive production in various countries. Being the major application area for hydrophilic coats, it restricts the growth prospects for the hydrophilic coating market.
  • The global hydrophilic coating market is expected to observe a moderate decline in its growth rate, since the hydrophilic coats are highly utilized in medical, industrial, commercial, consumer, and aviation sectors, which are severely affected by the pandemic and observed substantial decline in their demand.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Healthcare sector is expected to dominate the global hydrophilic coating market owing to major applications of hydrophilic coats in the manufacturing of medical devices. Hydrophilic coats are preferred by most of the industries because they provide more evenly wet and lubricated surface than its alternatives. Factors such as high production cost and low shelf life are restraining the growth of the hydrophilic coating market. Hydrophilic coating is used to coat in the products that has a unique or high curves or three-dimensional shape. Looking at the demand of the different advance medical devices in the various health system, it is expected to increase the demand for hydrophilic coating in the market. 

Market Trends
