Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/19/2019 -- Wound Care and Medical Device Coatings Market – Snapshot
Prolonged usage of medical devices results in adverse factors including wearing out of these devices, rise in infections, development of microbes, and increase in friction and corrosion. In order to counter these adverse effects, medical devices are coated. Different types of surface-coating technologies have been implemented in the recent past. These have helped reduce design complexity and have improved the overall usage of medical devices.
Based on product, the global wound care and medical device coatings market has been segmented into antimicrobial, hydrophilic, drug-eluting, and antithrombogenic & others. Antimicrobial is the most widely used product type of wound care and medical device coatings. The segment is likely to dominate the global wound care and medical device coatings market during the forecast period, due to high demand for antimicrobial coatings for use in the health care industry. Antimicrobial coatings have low cost and high compatibility with various materials of medical devices including metal, plastics, carbon fiber, composite materials, and stainless steel. Antimicrobial coatings resist the formation of microbial growth on the coating substrate. On the other hand, hydrophilic is estimated to be a rapidly expanding segment of the wound care and medical device coatings market during the forecast period. Hydrophilic coatings are gaining significance, as they provide sufficient wetting ability to facilitate smooth lubrication. Cardiovascular devices is likely to be the rapidly expanding application segment of the market during the forecast period.

Wound care is projected to be the rapidly expanding segment of the wound care and medical device coatings market from 2018 to 2026. This is attributable to rapid growth of geriatric population, development of innovative wound care products, increasing number of road accidents and trauma injuries worldwide, and rising number of awareness programs for wound care treatment and management. Medical tapes & bandages is expected to be the dominant sub-segment of the wound care segment, whereas wound drains is likely to be the rapidly expanding segment during the forecast period.
Based on region, the global wound care and medical device coatings market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America dominates the global market, due to favorable health care policies and rising frequency of cardiometabolic disorders such as pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the region. High adoption of advanced surgical treatments, increasing awareness regarding commercially available products, and development of health care infrastructure in the U.S. are likely to fuel the market in the region between 2018 and 2026. Europe constitutes the second-largest share of the global market for wound care and medical device coatings. However, the market in the region is expected to witness sluggish growth during the forecast period, due to stringent regulations imposed by the European Union.
