Antimicrobial plastics are polymer materials infused with antimicrobial agents and additives to kill microorganisms, such as bacteria, algae, and fungi, and inhibit their growth on the end-use products. The continuous and repeated use of plastic materials causes hygiene-related concerns, increasing the risk of contamination and pathogenic diseases. Commodity plastics, engineering plastics, and high-performance plastics are majorly used in applications such as medical & healthcare and packaging.
“Inorganic additives is projected to be the fastest-growing additive for antimicrobial plastics market between 2021 and 2026”
Antimicrobial additives are of two types: inorganic and organic. There is a higher demand for inorganic antimicrobial additives mainly due to their non-volatile nature, high thermal stability, and widespread applications. Inorganic antimicrobial additives are widely used in the healthcare, packaging, and construction industries. Silver is the most commonly used inorganic antimicrobial additive. It is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, sustainable, and has excellent safety.
“High-performance plastics segment is projected to be the fastest-growing type for antimicrobial plastics market between 2021 and 2026.”
The antimicrobial plastics market is segmented into three different types: commodity plastics (PE, PP, PVC, PS, PMMA, PET, and PUR), engineering plastics (ABS, PC, PA, POM, and others), and high-performance plastics. Each plastic has its unique properties that are considered for specific applications. After the outbreak of COVID-19 at the beginning of 2020, there was a surge in demand for antimicrobial plastics in different industries. High performance plastics differ from other plastics—commodity and engineering—primarily due to their temperature stability, chemical stability, and mechanical properties. This type of polymer is used in high-end products. It is used in premium cars for reducing the weight with the same strength as that of metal. Similarly, it is also used in medical equipment where mechanical properties, thermal stability, and other features along with antimicrobial protection are required.
“Medical & Healthcare is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing application in antimicrobial plastics market between 2021 and 2026.”
The medical & healthcare segment is estimated to be the largest and fastest-growing application of the antimicrobial plastics market during the forecast period. The medical & healthcare segment leads the antimicrobial plastics market owing to the rising incidence of life-threatening diseases such as H1N1, nosocomial infections, COVID-19, and other health-related issues. Increasing consumer awareness about personal hygiene and the quality of medical equipment is expected to drive the market in the segment. In 2020, the most demanded industry was medical & healthcare owing worldwide outbreak of COVID-19. In some countries, temporary hospital setups were built in a short span of time to handle the high number of COVID-19 patients. Therefore, this scenario also generated a high demand for hospital beds, and other medical equipment made up of antimicrobial plastics.
