The global antimicrobial coatings market is expected to witness increase in demand for water-based coatings such as, high solids, powder, and radiation-cure coatings with antimicrobial activity in the coming years. This is mainly because of increase in number of stringent environmental regulations in different geographies such as North America and Europe that has created demand for inorganic coatings.

According to the report, Sick Building Syndrome is increasing at a fast pace because of the decreasing quality of air. This particular syndrome mainly occurs when air pollutants are trapped in an area giving rise to health problems. Generation of this particular problem makes the need for indoor air quality products to increase in demand. One of the most important causes of poor indoor air quality is deterioration and poor maintenance.

Further, the report states that new legislation and growing microbial resistance against metal ions and antibiotics and development of resistant strains has resulted in coating manufacturers seeking alternatives to traditional antimicrobial coatings. Development of antimicrobial agents with low toxicity and ability to inhibit microbial contamination is a key issue in the development of new coatings for healthcare, packaging and food and pharmaceutical production.
