Antimicrobial Coatings Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast, 2012 - 2018


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2015 -- The antimicrobial coatings market manufactures products/coatings that, when applied to a surface, transform it into a material that can fight the existence of microbes such as mold, fungi and bacteria for a long duration at a time.

Trends affecting antimicrobial coatings market growth

In the past few years, the global antimicrobial coatings market has observed significant demand for products that can eradicate possibilities of indoor air pollution. The closed or poorly ventilated indoor environments of most commercial, educational, medical or domestic settings these days hardly leave any scope for free circulation of natural air in these places. This has made indoor air pollution a pressing issue for the health of inhibitors of such areas. Thus, demand for antimicrobial coatings capable of improving quality of indoor air is continuously rising at a good pace for the past few years. According to market analysts, the demand for antimicrobial coatings will increase at a CAGR of 12.8% for this application area through the year 2018.

However, factors such as health issues pertaining to the continuous use of active silver, issue of absorption of nanoparticles through the skin, which may also lead to complex health conditions, and stringent government regulations regarding the accurate definition of these substances are some factors that may negatively affect the market's growth in the coming years.
