Driving Factors

The healthcare sector has increased the deployment of antimicrobial-protected tools in order to offer a safe environment for patients and personnel. To meet the industry's stringent patient safety standards, the medical coating is an important operation in the manufacture of medical equipment. The medical coating maintains the equipment's antibacterial and inhibits liquid penetration.


The increasing use of minimally invasive surgical treatments is likely to produce profitable consequences for the medical coating market expansion. As the prevalence of cardiovascular illness, arthritis, and cancer rises, so does the demand for minimally invasive surgical treatments.


There has been a surge in the demand for medical devices that can traverse through intricate and sophisticated sections of the body, such as cameras, screening procedures, ventilation systems, surgical equipment, implants, and many others.Hydrophobic or hydrophilic coatings are used to make these devices easier to implant into convoluted and narrow capillaries and to reduce tissue injury.Medical-grade coatings are of vital importance in such medical treatments since they are cost-effective and need less time.


Restraining Factors

Raw material price volatility has a significant impact on the price of coating fabrication. The rising cost of raw materials like silicone rubber and PTFE is projected to restrict the product's availability.


Market Segmentation

   In 2021, the antimicrobial coatings segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period

On the basis of Type, the Global Medical Coating Market is segmented into hydrophilic coatings, antimicrobial coatings, anti-thrombogenic coatings, hydrophobic coating, and others. Among these, the antimicrobial coatings segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast. On a variety of medical items, medical equipment, and surfaces, the antimicrobial coating is used to prevent the growth of bacteria and germs and to stop the spread of infection. The EPA has also approved the use of the antimicrobial coating in HVAC systems as a safe and effective method of reducing odor-producing microorganisms in hospitals, medical equipment, and water filters. Thus, as the healthcare industry grows, so does the need for antimicrobial coatings to maintain a sterile, hygienic, and safe hospital environment.


  • In 2021, the fluoropolymer segment is dominating the market over the forecast period

On the basis of material, the Global Medical Coating Market is segmented into metals, ceramics, polymers, fluoropolymer, silicone, parylene, and others. Among these, the fluoropolymer segment is dominating the market over the forecast period. Fluoropolymers are further classed as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF), and others. Fluoropolymers are dry and inert, making it difficult for practically any chemical to adhere to and react with a coated surface. Fluoropolymers have a quasi, stable, and smooth surface, which makes them suitable for a variety of applications such as anesthesia delivery, agitation shafts, sterilization equipment, centrifuge components, saline packaging, implants, tubes, surgical tools, and others.


  • In 2021, the medical devices segment is dominating the market with the largest market share of 58% over the forecast period

Based on the application, the Global Medical Coating Market is segmented intomedical devices, medical implants, medical equipment & tools, protective clothing, and others. The medical devices sector leads the market with a 58% market share throughout the projection period, owing to an increase in the number of general operations including the usage of such equipment.Modern developments and ongoing research have led to a vast variety of applications for numerous medical devices.The increased prevalence of ageing population around the world is one of the primary factors driving the need for medical equipment, which is projected to drive market growth.
