(PharmaNewsWire.Com, January 06, 2022 ) The report "Antimicrobial Plastics Market by Type (Commodity Plastics, Engineering Plastics, and High Performance Plastics), Application (Packaging, Automotive, Consumer Goods, Medical and Healthcare, and Building & Construction), Region - Global Forecast to 2025", is projected to reach USD 59.8 billion by 2025 from USD 36.9 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 10.1%. Antimicrobial plastics are polymer materials infused with antimicrobial agents and additives to kill microorganisms, such as bacteria, algae, and fungi, and inhibit their growth in end-use products. The continuous and repeated use of plastic materials causes issues related to hygiene, thereby increasing the risk of contamination and pathogenic diseases.
The major factors driving the antimicrobial plastics market are the growing awareness about health-related issues, rapid urbanization, growing population, increasing demand from the healthcare sector, and wide application areas of antimicrobial plastics.
The commodity plastics segment is estimated to be the largest type segment of the antimicrobial plastics market in 2019.
Commodity plastics are the most commonly used plastics across a wide range of applications. These plastics are used in applications where mechanical properties and service environments are not very critical. Some examples of commodity plastics are PE, PP, PS, PVC, PMMA, PET, and PUR. These plastics are produced in high volume at low cost for the most common disposable items and durable goods. The widespread applications, easy availability, and low-cost materials are the key factors driving the commodity plastics market.
The medical and healthcare application segment is estimated to lead the antimicrobial plastics market during the forecast period.
The medical and healthcare application leads the antimicrobial plastics market owing to consumer awareness regarding health-related issues and life-threatening diseases such as H1N1, nosocomial infections, and COVID-19 in the recent past. As a result, the importance of antimicrobial plastics in medical and healthcare application is expected to increase during the forecast period. Moreover, innovation in the medical and healthcare application, for instance, the development of non-toxic plastic equipment is anticipated to fuel the growth of the antimicrobial plastics market. Surgical and medical devices such as catheters, cubicle curtains, beds, and dental implants are the other medical and healthcare applications of antimicrobial plastics.
