“Over the years, the medical devices manufacturers are looking for antimicrobial coatings which are biocompatible, non-toxic, and biostable for a wide range of medical devices. The demand for these antimicrobial coatings has increased significantly, owing to the increasing risk of hospital-associated infections (HAIâs).
Based on the type of material, the global antimicrobial coatings for medical devices market is segmented into metallic coatings and non-metallic coatings. The metallic coatings segment is expected to be the largest segment in 2015. However, the non-metallic segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment in 2015. The metallic segment is further sub-segmented into silver coatings, copper coatings and other metallic coatings which include zinc and titanium. The silver coatings segment is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing segment in 2015. The non-metallic segment is further sub-segmented into polymeric coatings and organic coatings. The polymeric coatings segment is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing segment in 2015.
Based on the devices type, the global antimicrobial coatings for medical devices market is segmented into catheters, implantable devices, surgical instruments, and other devices (Mandrels & Molds, Guidewires, Epidural Needles, and Elastomeric Seals). The catheters segment is expected to be the largest segment in 2015. However, implantable device segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment in 2015.
North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global antimicrobial coatings for medical devices market for medical devices, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the world (RoW) in 2015. In the coming years, the antimicrobial coatings for medical devices market is expected to witness the highest growth rate in the Asian region, with emphasis on India, China, and Japan. These countries are expected to increase revenues for the manufacturers of antimicrobial coatings.
The global antimicrobial coatings companies adopt various strategies (agreements, partnerships, mergers, collaborations, acquisitions, new product launches, geographical expansions, acquisitions, certifications, and grants, among others) to increase their market shares and establish a strong foothold in the global antimicrobial coatings market for medical devices.
