The global antimicrobial coating market was worth USD 2.44 billion in 2015. Indian pharmaceutical companies are driving into antimicrobial market to be in line with the regulatory standards. The effect of micro-organisms on people improves health concerns owing to boost the market over the forecast period
U.S. FDA and MHRA have raised the concern on the usage of silver in the product which can be a key hindrance for the overall demand. Copper and alloys (bronze, copper copper-nickel-zinc, and others) are an innovation as they are natural antimicrobial materials in antimicrobial surfaces as they can destroy a variety of microorganisms due to their intrinsic properties. U.S. FDA has provided certain regulations for drug-device combinations which except to boost the market over the forecast period. They meet the safety and efficacy part based on specified requirements. In recent past, the application directly on the local surface is considered more. Product Insights Surface modification and coatings dominated the product segment accounting for a market share of around 55.7% of total volume in 2015. Modification and antimicrobial powder coatings are the key product segments in this market. The main concern of paint process segment is protection of the dry film against fungal and algae growth. So, biocides are used to maintain the product’s usage period and to preserve the desired look of the painted surface for a longer period. Medical and surgical devices use the coating of silver nanoparticles which destroys the microorganism cell membranes that are used to avoid bacterial adhesion and formation of bio-film. The extended release of silver Nano particles helps in killing the bacteria near the surface with low toxicity.
