Antimicrobial coating is a chemical applied to a surface to inhibit the growth of disease-causing germs. These coatings increase the surface's durability, attractiveness, corrosion resistance, and other characteristics, but they also protect against microorganisms that cause disease. Chemicals are employed in antimicrobial coatings to break cellular membranes and prevent pathogen growth. Antimicrobial coatings are frequently utilized to protect surfaces as well as people. Antimicrobial coatings are mostly graphene, polycationic hydrogel, silver nanoparticles, polymer brushes, dendrimers, copper, and copper alloys.
According to the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, healthcare spending in the United States climbed by 4.60% in 2018, hitting USD 3.6 trillion. Healthcare spending accounted for more than 17.70% of the country's GDP in 2018, and this trend is likely to continue over the forecast period. According to the same source, healthcare spending in the United States is predicted to grow at a 5.40% annual rate from 2019 to 2028, reaching USD 6.2 trillion.
This rapid development is projected to be driven by the rising demand for medical care among the aging population (65 and older), the prevalence of chronic disorders and diseases, infrastructure improvements, and technology innovations. As a result, demand for antimicrobial coatings is likely to rise as the medical device market grows.
Antimicrobial coatings can be found on catheters, implanted devices, and surgical equipment, among other medical devices. One of the most effective ways to increase infection control in healthcare without jeopardizing patient care is to use antimicrobial coating technology. Illnesses from medical devices are more prevalent, leading to healthcare-associated infections (HAI). As a result, antimicrobial coatings on medical devices aid in preventing the growth and spread of bacteria and germs.
The medical device industry is growing at a rapid pace worldwide. Increased healthcare spending, the developing home healthcare sector, the growing senior population, notably in North America and Europe, and the rising frequency of cardiovascular illnesses are driving medical device demand.
Furthermore, the medical device industry's growth has been aided by rising demand for better healthcare facilities and an increase in the number of hospitals. North America surpassed Europe as the leading market for medical equipment in 2020. Rising healthcare spending and the existence of well-equipped hospitals and healthcare centers in North America are fueling the need for medical devices. Over the forecast period, increasing demand for medical devices will likely fuel demand for antimicrobial coatings.
As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, demand for antimicrobial coatings has increased significantly in several industries, including protective gear, consumer goods, and electronic devices. Protective garments to prevent COVID-19 infection are now being developed by many established enterprises and startups.
For instance, in April 2020, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) announced the development of spray-based antimicrobial coatings for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as face masks, that will kill 99.9% of germs and viruses. In April 2020, an IIT-Madras startup created clothing with antibacterial fabric to combat COVID-19.
As a result, technological advancements concerning the market trends will likely provide lucrative opportunities for established vital players to expand their innovative product portfolios and gain market dominance.

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the antimicrobial coatings market growth. Antimicrobial coatings have become increasingly popular in the medical and healthcare industries. Antimicrobial coatings got a lot of attention during the COVID-19 pandemic. They were utilized to limit the spread of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) at various temporary and existing healthcare facilities.
For the global antimicrobial coatings market, the post-pandemic period will be crucial. As the COVID-19 outbreak passes, the market's growth will moderate slightly. Other factors, such as the increasing importance of cleanliness to prevent illnesses worldwide, will continue to drive market growth over the forecast period. Overall, the global antimicrobial coatings market will swiftly rebound and show signs of growth following the pandemic.
North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Central and South America, and the Middle East and Africa make up the market's five regions. North America and the Asia-Pacific are the two most important markets for antimicrobial coatings. Out of all the regional countries, the United States has the most tempting market potential for market players, majorly driving the North American market. Rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries, the availability of novel implant devices, and modern healthcare infrastructure are expected to be favorable growth factors in the United States over the forecast period.
The United States is likely to play a significant role in the overall growth of the North American market. Due to the country's well-developed healthcare infrastructure and reimbursement coverage, high demand for sophisticated healthcare services is likely to increase demand for medical devices, driving demand for antimicrobial coatings over the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is expected to be the second-largest market for antimicrobial coatings, with an expected market value of USD 7,131.19 million by 2030. The market is expected to be driven by the key end-use industries of healthcare, construction, food processing, and packaging. Due to the robust manufacturing base of the packaging products sector in India, China, and Japan and the expanding sales of e-Commerce and packaged food products, the regional market is anticipated to rise.
In Europe, one of the primary factors regulating the antimicrobial coatings market expansion in the region is stringent regulations on VOC emissions from coatings and technological advancement in the medical sector. Consumers are likely to spend more on effective and innovative medical treatments, general operations, and in vitro diagnostics, which will drive demand for antimicrobial coatings over the forecast period in the European market.
Healthcare spending is anticipated to climb steadily throughout the Central and South American regions during the forecast period. Governments around the area are working on several efforts to strengthen public healthcare systems despite budget constraints. Several initiatives encourage more private investment in the region's healthcare sector to enhance current healthcare infrastructures in key nations, including Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela. As a result, demand for antimicrobial coatings in the medical device application segment increases.
Over the forecast period, the increased use of antimicrobial coatings in medical devices is likely to fuel demand for antimicrobial coatings in the Middle East and Africa region. Over the forecast period, rapid population growth and high rates of lifestyle-related illnesses, together with ambitious healthcare infrastructure development, are expected to enhance the demand for medical devices in the region.
