Antimicrobial Coating Market to Show $5 billion by 2021

The antimicrobial coating provides protection to the surface or the product on which antimicrobial coating is applied. The coating which helps to kill, prevent, discourage or perform as a combination of the actions to lessen the growth of micro-organisms such as germs, viruses, bacteria, fungi & molds and parasites is called as an antimicrobial coating. Antimicrobial coating possesses excellent abrasion & scratch resistance, heat resistance, chemical resistance, adhesion promoting surfaces etc., due to which it is used in many applications. The antimicrobial coating has been adapted to perform a dual role that is, to protect human beings from diseases causing micro-organisms and reduce the risk of infections as well as protecting the application surfaces at the same time.
