Transparency Market Research (TMR) presents a research report on the global antimicrobial powder coating market. The report divulges details of the market’s progression for the 2013-2019 period. In the economic development of a nation, advancement of chemicals and materials and ancillary industries is important to safeguard the structural and functional performance of vital physical objects. Antimicrobial powder coatings constitute an essential class of chemicals. The usability of these substances and the many questions that are in the interest of entities involved in their business are discussed in this report. The report is titled “Antimicrobial Powder Coating Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019.”
The report says that antimicrobial powder coatings are of three types – natural, inorganic, and organic – depending on the constituent material used in their composition. Primarily composed of copper, silver, and other heavy metals, inorganic material powder coatings dominate the market due to their high performance level. Silver is extensively used for antimicrobial powder coatings due to its high biocompatibility.
The report finds out the many reasons why antimicrobial powder coatings are increasingly being used across a large number of end-use industries. Industrialization and urbanization have been largely responsible for increasing air pollution, thereby tarnishing the quality of products exposed to it. These include furniture, textiles, and electronics, among other objects that need protective coating to minimize damage. Antimicrobial coating powder, if applied on the surface of these objects, creates a barrier, preventing bacteria or fungi from attacking these objects. Construction applications also exhibit substantial demand for these coatings, since they prevent damage to material structures for construction applications.
Increasing air pollution levels that have serious health implications have necessitated the use of air purifying agents. To address this, antimicrobial powder coatings are increasingly being used for improving indoor air quality and physical objects are coated with antimicrobial powder to minimize bacterial growth. Organic powder coatings are bio-compatible and free of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that are not detrimental to the environment as well.
In the coming years, food and healthcare applications will exhibit the highest demand for antimicrobial powder coatings. This is because stringent regulatory mandates in place to keep a check on the suitability of food and medicine meant for human use has necessitated controlling surface microbial concentration. These products, if coated with antimicrobial powders on the surface, reduces chances of bacterial and fungal growth.The report analyzes the global market for antimicrobial powder coating for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World regions. North America is the largest market for these products, due to properly laid out regulations that strictly control microbial concentration on orally consumed items such as food and medicine.
