Market dynamics


Drivers in the Anti-Microbial coating market


In the recent past, Anti-Microbial coating has gained so much attention in the medical and healthcare sectors. This is mainly due to rising concern about different infections and coronavirus. The government is also taking initiatives to prevent the spread of various infections. In the healthcare sector, the leading cause of morality is HAIs. According to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, around 1.7 million patients in the United States are infected by HAIs, and 100,000 patients die from the infections. The spread of HAIs is directly or indirectly related to medical devices. They occur during the treatment procedures.


The medical devices are the playground for the bacteria, and it is nearly impossible for them to clean with the help of antibiotics. Due to that, several medicals devices are not Anti-Microbial coated. The Anti-Microbial coating can prevent the spread of infection of the bacteria. As a result, it is highly used in the medicals, and it is driving the Anti-Microbial coating market. Apart from that, Anti-Microbial coating is used in paint, polymers to stop the prevention of harmful bacteria. So, the wide range of applications of Anti-Microbial coating will boost the Anti-Microbial coating market growth.
