The antimicrobial coatings for medical devices market in Europe is expected to grow from US$ 519.14 million in 2022 to US$ 1,086.64 million by 2028. It is estimated to record a CAGR of 13.1% from 2022 to 2028.
Burgeoning Use of and Demand for Medical Implants
With the increasing number of medical procedures and demand for advanced devices, the threat of high-risk infections from superbugs, such as MRSA, Clostridium difficile , and Pseudomonas aeruginosa , is also increasing.Implant-associated infections (IAIs) are leading to a large number of deaths and high medical costs.
The number of knee and hip implant surgeries performed every years is increasing with the surging prevalence of osteoarthritis and other similar conditions.Patients with osteosynthetic implants around the hip and knee show higher infection rates after joint arthroplasty.
The "Clinically Asymptomatic Patients Show a High Bacterial Colonization Rate of Osteosynthetic Implants Around the Knee but Not the Hip" study, published in the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in 2019, revealed that staphylococci are the most common causative agents of periprosthetic joint infections.Antimicrobial coating of medical devices and equipment appears to be the most proficient means of improving infection control in a healthcare setting.
A wide variety of coating technologies and antimicrobial agents are available for medical devices and surgical implants.
The Europe antimicrobial coatings for medical devices market is subsegmented into Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and the Rest of Europe.Germany and the UK are among the most significant contributors to the market in this region due to the increased prevalence of implant surgeries, whereas France and Italy are estimated to be the fastest-growing markets for antimicrobial coatings for medical devices.
The market growth in these countries is attributed to the availability of the best healthcare facilities and a surge in healthcare expenditure in these countries.
