Growth factors

In the recent years there has been a great demand for antimicrobial coatings in various industries especially the healthcare industry and the medical industry across the developed as well as the developing nations. This growth is majorly due to the various initiatives that are taken by the government in order to prevent the transfer of various diseases through the human contact or touch. All the health care institutes many patients that suffer with various diseases and this place could be a hub for transferring diseases from one person to another and in order to prohibit this there has been an increased use of antimicrobial coatings in these institutes. About 1.7 million people are affected with many diseases that can be transferred from one person to another through the surfaces in the United States. There has been an increase in the deaths that occur due to these diseases.

The increased use of medical devices for one or more person is the carrier of such diseases. When different patients come in contact with these medical devices for undergoing different types of procedures or treatments the risk of acquiring these diseases increases. And in order to prevent the spread of disease in this manner there is an increased use of antimicrobial coatings in the medical industry. The use of medical devices for invasive surgeries or the use of these devices that enter to human body the risk is increased. All of these medical devices used in the healthcare facility happens to be a ground for the breeding of such bacteria. The bacteria continue to grow on these surfaces and it becomes extremely difficult to disinfect these devices or clean these devices with the already existing antibiotics. In order to prevent the spread of these diseases where is health care facilities and the manufacturers have started making use of antimicrobial coatings during the manufacturing of such products. The governments of the developed as well as the developing nations are also supporting the policy especially in the North American and the European region.

Growing awareness regarding the availability of these coatings and the benefits offered by the use of antimicrobial coatings is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Increase in the number of initiatives taken by the government in various regions to provide safety to the patients and to enhance the number of precautions taken in order to prevent the spread of any diseases will be helpful in the growth of the antimicrobial coatings market in the coming years.

Antimicrobial coatings are used on many different electronic products as well as consumer goods. The increased use of antimicrobial coatings on the electronic products and the consumer goods Is due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Growing concerns over the spread of the virus caused a great demand for antimicrobial coatings.
