Antimicrobial Coatings Market Size 2020-2026: Robust antimicrobial coating applications in the food industry

Author : Ravi Chawat | Published Date : 2020-08-28 

Antimicrobial coatings are known to help stop the spread of pathogens that may lead to any disease, which is extremely integral in hospitals where people already have weak immunity. Additionally, these products carry the potential to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning in a medical environment.

The antimicrobial coatings are extensively used in public construction solutions to coat walls, counters, and handles. These provide safety to the infrastructure and control the presence of bacteria in and on buildings. These coatings extend proven protection from microbial attachments by controlling the development of unwanted organisms such as mold, bacteria, and fungi.

Due to their myriad applications, these coatings are applied to doors, walls, glass panels, counters, and HVAC tents. Antimicrobial coatings are also sprayed on textiles, masks, carpeting, and gloves.  

A rise in the construction of commercial, residential, and industrial establishments over the past several years due to economic improvement in both developed and developing nations has supported the demand for the coatings. Reports estimate that the construction sector in Australia generates approximately USD 247.79 billion in revenue, accounting for nearly 9% of the country’s total GDP.

Antimicrobial coatings help in reducing food contamination incidences

Antimicrobial coatings find extensive application in the food sector as they reduce the propagation of listeria and other bacterial infections. Moreover, these coatings provide quick reaction time, superior efficiency, and low toxic residual levels.

The rapid increase in population globally has amplified the demand for food and beverages. In the year 2018, the European food industry registered a turnover of USD 1.24 trillion, indicating the substantial opportunities for antimicrobial coating producers.

According to a report furnished by the World Health Organization in the year 2019, nearly 600 million people fall ill, and 420,000 lives are claimed annually due to contaminated food. Contaminated food contact surfaces are partly responsible for such cases.

Food contact surfaces in food processing units are prone to contamination with various unwanted microorganisms like Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. In order to reduce contamination and the spread of the disease, these surfaces are widely treated with antimicrobial coatings.

Global antimicrobial coatings market share has witnessed considerable gains over the years due to strong application in the healthcare and medical equipment industry. High end commercial and residential projects have registered an increase in the demand for the products to help in reducing air pollution levels.

Prominent coatings producers include AK Steel, DuPont, BASF, Nippon Paints, Sono-Tek Corporation, and Akzo Nobel N.V. among various others.
