The microbe growth on regular surfaces doubles every 20 minutes and often results in bad odors, staining, & product degradation. Once microbes have started growing on the surface, it requires constant cleaning to control microbe growth. However, frequent cleaning is not possible and can reduce the product lifespan. This aids the demand for antimicrobial coatings that comprise ingredients to make them effective against fungal & bacterial growth and, in turn, protect the surface from any damage.
The Middle East & Africa Antimicrobial Coatings Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-26. The prime factors driving the market include the rapidly expanding healthcare & food & beverage industries and the increasing production of medical equipment in the Middle East & Africa. These aspects are leading to the continuous demand for antimicrobial coatings around the region. Besides, HVAC industries have also observed a decent accession in the market share due to the adoption of technologies, such as clean & germ-free cool air coming out of air conditioners.
Moreover, antimicrobial coatings can be applied to glass panels, doors, walls, & HVAC systems and sprayed onto textiles and carpets. The snowballing demand for high-quality coatings with quick response time to fight against pathogens is another crucial aspect projected to drive the market during the forecast period.
