Application Insights

The indoor air quality segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 27.40% in 2023. Over the past few years, there has been increasing focus on the improvement of air quality to reduce the risk of health problems associated with indoor pollutants. Human health is highly dependent on the building environment. Tight building envelopes and improper ventilation lead to sick building syndrome, in which the patient experiences headaches and respiratory ailments. These factors are likely to elevate the demand for the product over the forecast period.

The mold remediation segment, estimated to have a 14.3% CAGR in the forecast period, is also a significant application for breathable antimicrobial coatings due to the rising use of these coatings in hospital bed trays, surgical trays, medical device packaging, IV stands, medical monitoring equipment, medical carts, wall coverings, countertops, and surfaces. These coatings not only prevent bacterial growth but also act as a barrier against other microbes present in the air. They prevent the device from degradation and enhance its life, which is expected to propel the demand over the forecast period.

Furthermore, from 2020 to 2030, the construction segment is expected to emerge as a prominent market for breathable antimicrobial coatings on account of the increasing demand for bacteria and moisture prevention in residential and commercial buildings. These coatings increase the shelf life of the paint and require low maintenance, which is expected to augment the demand over the next eight years.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global breathable antimicrobial coatings market and accounted for the largest revenue share 41.36% in 2023. Technological advancement, coupled with the presence of numerous market players, is expected to propel the demand over the forecast period. Additionally, rapid growth in healthcare spending and consumers’ increasing willingness to pay are likely to propel growth.
