Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/09/2018 -- Hydrophilic Coatings Market – Market Overview
Hydrophilic Coatings offer reduced surface friction and enhanced lubricity, acting as a microscopic sponge and water or any other liquid provides excellent low friction characteristics as long as the coatings remains wet.
The primary driver of the Global Hydrophilic Coatings Market is the increasing demand for controlled lubricity of medical devices surface. These coatings are suitable for biological interactions as they react with water to form hydrogel material which reduces the insertion force and avoids possible puncture damage. Hydrophilic Coatings are biocompatible and prevent any minute chances of infections due to their anti-microbial properties. These coatings are used in catheters, guide-wires, and cannulas as they reduce the occurrences of inflammation and damage caused by these devices. The other market drivers include their use as an anti-fog agent in automotive parts and in marine industry to reduce kinematic friction between the coated boats and water surfaces. The coatings are also used in ophthalmology for placing intraocular lenses (IOLs) devices to reduce the catastrophic bursting incidences and incision size, which is likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
