The global market for antimicrobial medical product coatings is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% in revenue in the period 2021–2026.

New York, April 8, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – announces the release of the report “Antimicrobial Medical Device Coating Market – Global Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026.” – utm_source = GNW

The antimicrobial medical coating market is an integral part of the global medical coating market. The use of antimicrobials in medical products is increasing due to their biocompatibility, non-toxicity, durability and biostability. The growing popularity of antimicrobial technologies in healthcare facilities is contributing to market growth. Demand for antimicrobial coatings will increase with the growing percentage of the elderly population and the increase in chronic diseases in both developed and developing countries. The adoption of innovative surface technologies will also significantly boost the demand for antimicrobial coatings for medical equipment.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the antimicrobial medical product coating market over the forecast period:
• Outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic
• Availability of companies providing coating systems
• The emergence of nanoparticle coating technology
• Increasing the use of minimally invasive surgeries

The study considers the current scenario of the antimicrobial medical products coating market and its market dynamics for the period 2020 to 2026. It includes a detailed overview of several drivers of growth, constraints and trends. The report also offers aspects of market demand and supply. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent companies operating in the market.

Global segmentation of the antimicrobial coating market for medical devices
The Global Antimicrobial Medical Product Coatings Research Report includes detailed segmentation by material, device, and geographic area. Metal-based antimicrobials can provide solutions to the viability of infectious diseases. These solutions offer high efficiency at low dosing levels without the development of resistance – metal-based solutions, which have been a widespread commercial application of silver and copper for decades. Silver is a long-lasting antimicrobial agent applicable in several areas, from household to medical use. It is effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Innovations in product formulations and increased awareness of antimicrobial coatings are expected to boost demand for silver coatings.

An increase in catheter-related infections is likely to increase the use of antimicrobial dressings. Due to the growth of microbial flora and biofilm formation, catheter-related diseases are on the rise. Catheters are the most prominent medical devices that require antimicrobial coatings. Increased use of catheters in elderly patients is another factor for market growth. Although several agents can be used for coating, silver is a widely used antimicrobial agent. Silver and silver nanoparticles have shown high efficacy in reducing microbial growth and preventing biofilms on catheters.

In 2020, North America accounted for over 44% of the global market share of antimicrobial coatings for medical products. The region is growing due to the large number of elderly population and the prevalence of nosocomial infections. Increased spending on the healthcare industry is driving the market in the region. As the geriatric population increases, so does the frequency and prevalence of chronic conditions that require surgery. An effective reduction in HAI and increased spending on health care on medical devices will increase the demand for antimicrobial dressings and antimicrobial dressings for wounds. Increasing exports of medical devices and advances in medical technology and growing demand for home health care are increasing the demand for antimicrobial solutions in the region.
