Medical Device Coating Market to Cross Over USD 18.3 Billion by 2035 | Roots Analysis

Published: February 2024

According to a recently published report by Roots Analysis, the growing preference for medical devices with antimicrobial coating drives the medical device coating market.

Medical Device Coating Market Overview

The global medical device coating market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.7%  from 2023-2035, reaching USD 18.3 billion by 2035.

Medical coating adds a hard surface to the devices to protect them from abrasions, chipping, and scratching. The healthcare industry utilizes a wide range of metal equipment, instruments, and tools to perform surgeries. These devices have to be coated with an additional layer of antimicrobial material for absolute sterilization and long shelf life. Owing to the growing requirement for medical devices such as implants, surgical instruments, catheters, and other invasive devices, medical device coating players emphasize innovation to enhance the biocompatibility of the devices. Notably, multiple types of medical device coatings have been developed by key market players that can accommodate the multifunctionality of these medical devices. In addition, several surface modification technologies have been developed to improve the physicochemical properties of medical devices. Driven by the ongoing research on medical device coating to enhance its biocompatibility, it is anticipated that the market will grow during the forecast period.
