Antimicrobial Plastics Market

The growing demand for antimicrobial plastics from the medical sector is fueling the market for antimicrobial plastics

The global antimicrobial plastics market is likely to showcase a growth of around 9% during the forecast period. Antibacterial plastic is a type of plastic that can kill or limit the spread of bacteria such as molds, pathogens, algae, and microorganisms that can damage plastics. Antimicrobial plastics engage with antimicrobial compounds to protect plastic’s surface from microbe formation and provide increased surface protection between extensive cleanings. Furthermore, antimicrobial polymers are gaining popularity as they are more hygienic, reduce biofilm formation, and protect against discoloration and bad odors. Additionally, the demand for antimicrobial plastics is increasing on account of the rising demand for advanced medical technology in implants, growing demand for artificial organs, smart inhalers, precision medicines, rising preference for minimally invasive devices or surgical procedures, and rise in the need for robotic assistance in surgical procedures. Moreover, the rise in the geriatric population coupled with overspreading of infectious diseases, and the rising prevalence of diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, and cardiovascular diseases, which require complex surgical treatments also propels the market growth of antimicrobial plastics.

Based on additives, the market is categorized into inorganic and organic. Among these, inorganic has a prominent share in the antimicrobial plastics market as it is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, sustainable, non-volatile in nature, and has high thermal stability and excellent safety. Inorganic antimicrobial additives have widespread applications in the healthcare, packaging, and construction industries. Silver is a commonly used inorganic antimicrobial additive. Silver ion is the active ingredient in silver antimicrobials. It is permanent and has high thermal stability and can be integrated into a wide variety of polymers without altering the product exquisite.

Based on type, the market is categorized into high-performance plastic, engineering plastic, commodity plastic, and others. Among these, the commodity plastic has a considerable share in the antimicrobial plastic market. This is mainly attributed to the growing application areas of commodity plastic in consumer goods, packaging, food and beverage, and healthcare industries. Commodity plastics such as polypropylene and polyethylene are the main contributors to the rise in demand due to their improved biocompatibility, moisture resistance, high strength, chemical resistance, and wide range of applications in various end-use industries. Further, the rising building & construction industry coupled with the rising population is estimated to drive the demand for the commodity plastic.
