Increase in Epidemic Diseases and Increasing Awareness about Hospital Spread Diseases is Expected to Trigger the Growth of Medical Device Coatings Industry

06-Sep-2016 | Zion Market Research

Medical devices which are essential tools used in healthcare industry for daily activities are coated in order to modify the surfaces of devices, equipment, and implants. Medical device coating helps to improve the surface properties of medical devices. Increase in spread of contact diseases, especially in healthcare facility providing sites has resulted in increase in demand for medical device coating. According to Zion Market Research Analysis, the global medical devices coatings market was valued at approximate USD 8.1 billion in 2015 and expected to reach approximately USD 11.8 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of around 7.8% between 2016 and 2021.   

The medical device coatings market has experienced a rapid growth in the last few years on account of the increasing demand form antimicrobial coatings. Based on product, the market is segmented into hydrophilic coatings, anti-microbial coatings, anti-thrombogenic coatings, drug-eluting coatings and other coatings. Antimicrobial coatings and hydrophilic coatings are two major segments of medical device coatings market. Increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures coupled along with technological innovations are expected to propel the market growth in the years to come. However, volatile raw material prices and strict government regulations implied on this industry is expected to affect the industry over the forecast period. Nevertheless, nano – coatings is projected to open up new growth avenues in the coming years.
