Medical Coatings Market 2021 Outlook, Current and Future Industry Landscape Analysis 2026

Medical device components and electronics require protection to be effective. Electrical charges, moisture, bodily fluids, and contamination can render a life-saving device useless and ineffective. Medical coatings need to be ideal for most types of substrates, including metals, glass, plastics, ceramics, and silicone rubber, and should be sterilizable on all of them. Physico-mechanical coatings are those designed with physicomechanical properties such as moisture, chemical, and electrical barrier properties as well as tribological (lubricous) properties. The damage to the mucosal lining has led to the development of antimicrobial coatings with biological function (antimicrobial activity) and physicomechanical function (lubricity). Medical device coatings are significantly used to enhance the performance of devices and augment product surface function. In addition, coatings help in reducing friction between tissues and devices, provide wetting, surface coverage, and coating homogeneity. Most medical devices require non-stick coatings over electrical insulation, molded, biocompatible, or other finishes.

Medical Coating Market: Drivers

The increasing demand for coatings for life-saving devices from the medical industry is expected to increase the consumption of medical coatings. In addition, the rising demand for life-saving devices from emerging economies of the Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to increase the consumption of medical coatings. However, the availability of substitutes, product aging, low shelf life, and rising costs could hamper the growth of this market. In addition, varying government regulations for medical devices across countries may hamper the growth of the medical device coating market to some extent.
