A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting revealed that global antimicrobial coatings market was worth USD 3.3 billion in the year 2020. According to the study, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.5%, earning revenue of around USD 6.6 billion by the end of 2027. The global antimicrobial coatings market is gaining significant traction because of its prominent use in healthcare, HVAC systems, construction, and other industries. Increasing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs, and using antimicrobial coatings to sterilize medical devices are also driving growth in the antimicrobial coatings market.

Antimicrobial coatings are used to kill microbial attacks and prevent their growth and spread. During the forecast period, demand for antimicrobial coatings is likely to expand due to the increased construction of hospitals and other healthcare facilities, residential buildings, offices, and other commercial spaces, particularly in emerging markets. While antimicrobial coatings are relatively effective at preventing some bacteria, low health and hygiene awareness in low-income nations could act as a major impediment to the growth of the global antimicrobial coatings market.

Growing Demand in Food and Packaging Industry is Expected to Drive the Global Antimicrobial Coatings Market

The growing use of active antimicrobial packaging is offering growth opportunities to the global antimicrobial coatings market. Using antimicrobial coating in packaging for food products with a limited shelf life is expected to extend their shelf life by preventing bacterial or fungal growth during production, storage, and distribution. This helps prevent a large percentage of food from getting spoiled and lost to the manufacturers and sellers. Therefore, the food packaging industry is significantly adopting this chemical, which is anticipated to drive the global antimicrobial coatings market in the forecast period. The researchers from Victoria University of Wellington have made the breakthrough in antimicrobial coatings to kill over 650 different types of bacteria in food, including Salmonella ingestion, Norovirus, Listeria monocytogenes, and Campylobacter.

Expanding Product Ranges and Improved Supply Chain Is Projected To Boost the Global Antimicrobial Coatings Market

With emerging economies and low-income countries presenting lucrative growth opportunities for the antimicrobial coatings market, the manufacturers of this chemical are working on expanding their distribution channel, which is expected to improve the product penetration. To expand their regional presence, the manufacturers are establishing production plants and factories in high potential regions, such as India and China. Furthermore, they are also adopting automation and innovative technologies like trackers and sensors for efficient inventory management. Such efforts are expected to drive the global antimicrobial coatings market in the forecast period.
