The Europe antimicrobial coatings market size is expected to reach a valuation of USD 6060 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period (2022–2030). Antimicrobial coatings are microbe-resistant coatings containing antimicrobial agents that inhibit microbial contamination. They are widely used in the construction, food, and healthcare industries. They are used on doors, glass panels, walls, doors, HVAC tents, and counters, among other things. Antimicrobial coatings are also applied to masks, textiles, gloves, and carpeting. The growing demand for high-quality, quick-response coatings against a wide range of pathogens is expected to drive the Europe antimicrobial coatings market. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light how critical it is to take measures to avoid the spread of microbial contamination across a variety of different surfaces. As a direct consequence of this, antimicrobial coatings and the benefits that they can provide have gained extensive attention during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has had a positive impact on the market.
Antimicrobial coatings come at a premium price compared to more conventional coatings. The cost of antimicrobial coatings varies according to several factors, including quantity, purity, procurement purpose, and geography.
It is possible that surface modifications and coatings will record a CAGR of 9% through the year 2027 in Europe. Due to the severity of the illnesses that can be caused by pathogens like listeria found in food products, manufacturers will be compelled to use antimicrobial coatings that are resistant to listeria. Food products can have a longer shelf life if they are packaged in materials that have these coatings applied to them.
When antimicrobial coatings are applied to a surface, not only is the surface's durability and appearance enhanced, but the application of these coatings also helps to protect the surface from the invasion of microbes. As a consequence of this, these coatings are utilised extensively in order to prevent the germination of pathogens that are capable of causing infectious diseases such as Ebola, influenza, mumps, measles, rubella, and chickenpox. Aside from this, there is a growing awareness about the sick building syndrome all over in Europe. This is a condition that occurs when the occupants of a building experience severe health problems as a result of the deteriorating air quality. As a result, there is a greater demand for antimicrobial coatings for use in building interiors.
The market is segmented into on the basis of 4 things product, type, applications and region.
The ability of silver ions to inhibit the growth of germs makes them a desirable component for use in antimicrobial coatings. These coatings find use in a variety of industries and settings, including the food and healthcare industries. Even after being cleaned and exposed to water on a regular basis, the silver-based durable coatings continue to function properly. Product demand for building interior application should be increased by the expanding construction industry, as well as the growing demand for products that can improve hygiene.
The ability of copper antimicrobial powder coatings to provide resistance to pathogens that can harm the human body reduces the microbial burden on hospital surfaces significantly. Copper-based antimicrobial coatings are expected to be in high demand because they have a higher antimicrobial activity than silver-based powder coatings. Increased demand for antimicrobial powder coatings from the medical and healthcare industries, as well as increased concern for health, hygiene, and safety, are likely to open up new growth opportunities for the region's coatings market.
It is common practise to use antimicrobial coatings to keep HVAC systems like air conditioners and ventilators as well as heat pumps and fans free of microorganisms in buildings. Mould can grow on the surfaces of ceilings, walls, and automotive components. These coatings are effective in preventing mould growth and regrowth on those surfaces.
Antimicrobial coatings could benefit from an increase in air pollution from large industrial sites in Europe, as well as climate change, which could lead to an increase in indoor air pollution. The industry demand for indoor air quality applications will be stimulated by a growing focus on taking measures to limit pollution, save money in healthcare, improve quality of life, protect the indoor environment and boost worker productivity.
Over USD 105 million was generated by the Europe antimicrobial coatings market in Europe from the food segment in 2020. Antimicrobial coatings have applications in food processing facilities, factories that manufacture on a large scale, dairies, and the utensils and containers that are used during the manufacturing process. As a thin layer of protection, these coatings are applied to food contact surfaces and the packaging of food products.
The regions under Europe are classified into 4 parts, first being Germany, then UK and France and lastly rest of the Europe.
In 2020, Germany dominated Europe's industrial sector. The nation is home to one of the most cutting-edge healthcare systems in the world as well as the largest market for medical equipment in all of Europe. This factor has the potential to play a significant part in boosting the use of antimicrobial paints in medical devices, which can protect both patients and medical professionals from potentially dangerous microbes.
