This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Hydrophilic Coatings Market is accounted for $14.19 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $24.47 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. Hydrophilic coatings are used to reduce surface friction and improve lubricity. The term “hydrophilicity” means attractiveness in the direction of the water. As such, it takes place immediately when it is presented to moisture. These coatings offer versatile properties like high lubricity and flexibility, it is widely used in medical devices to form lubricious surface to prevent injury while inserting the device into the body. Most hydrophilic coatings include a free channel type polymer cover immediately generated from the outside. Hydrophilic coatings are used in multiple medical applications such as catheters, cannulas, and guidewires. This coating also saves the device from any kind of puncture and also provides better insertion characteristics.

Rising demand for highly durable products and increasing demand from the building and construction sector are likely to propel the coatings market. Countries such as India, Germany, the US, and China, among others, are witnessing increasing projects and investments in the infrastructure sector. For instance, National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) was launched with a projected infrastructure investment of around Rs. 111 lakh crore (US$ 1.5 trillion) during FY 2020-2025 to provide world-class infrastructure across the country and improve the quality of life for all citizens.

Market Dynamics:

Driver:

Increasing demand from healthcare sector

Advancements in the medical and health sector are expected to bolster demand for medical devices and these devices are largely using these coatings in order to ensure their proper functioning. These coatings also reduce the insertion pressure and ensure proper functionality without interaction with the environment. These coatings also prevent punctures hence ensuring the safety of medical devices when inserted in biological settings. All of these factors are driving the demand for hydrophilic coatings in the health and medical industry during the forecast period.

Restraint:

High costs to restrain hydrophilic coatings sales

These coatings are very expensive. Hydrophilic coatings manufacturers are investing in the development of new coatings that are more affordable and will see high espousal even in low income economies. Rising health care expenses and the limited shelf-life of certain products are a major constraint. These coatings are majorly used in medical devices such as orthopedic, cardiovascular, optical, endoscopic and radiology devices. The cost of medical implants is very high thus making it less suitable for the market. However, the Hydrophilic coatings market will be restrained to a certain extent by the aforementioned factor by the time companies come out with their affordable offerings.

Opportunity:

Growing technological developments

Cutting-edge technologies are innovative technologies used in anti-fog coatings that expand the product performance and durability. Anti-fog coating helps in clearing out the small droplets formed by the condensation of water and is used in different end-user industries like medical, construction, and automotive due to its properties such as durability, UV resistance, abrasion resistance, transparency, and chemical resistance. The hydrophilic coating has applications in automotive, building construction, and medical devices in various end-use industries. Additionally, anti-fog coatings are also used in applications such as sports eyewear and protective sunglasses, commercial freezers, windows, watches, and consumer electronics displays. Owing to its ability to lower light scattering, there is a significant increase in its usage in different end-user industries. This rise in demand for anti-fog coatings will subsequently provide opportunities to the hydrophilic coatings market.

Threat:

Strict and time-consuming regulatory approval process

Medical devices require going through design confirmation tests to determine whether they meet the stipulations and, hence, require time for approval. Medical OEMs have dissimilar coating materials and methodology options to choose for medical devices. Regulatory bodies do not endorse coatings independently. The participation of the coating supplier in the early stage of product expansion cycle is tremendously advantageous to OEMs and can positively affect the development speed, efficiency, and cost. The coated device needs to be approved or cleared by regulatory bodies. Though, some coating manufacturers perform tests on their coatings to maintain high quality. Major coating manufacturers in the market also maintain a Master File with the FDA, which shows all proprietary ingredients and processes involved with the product. A device manufacturer can incorporate this by referring to their regulatory submissions. This may save time for device development. However, the regulatory approval process remains time-consuming. The approval time varies largely according to device types. Many coating manufacturers provide regulatory services to their customers, under which they may provide regulatory filing support and coating design requirement verification and validation process. Changes in regulations can affect medical device manufacturers as well as hydrophilic coating manufacturers. FDA regulations are likely to become more complicated and expensive in the future. 

The polymers segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The polymers segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to its versatile properties like lightweight, low cost, high durability, portability, and flexibility, it is being widely used in a varied range of industrial applications. Moreover, polymers can be easily made lubricious to facilitate its smooth application and removal. Polymers that dissolve in, or are swollen by, water is known as hydrophilic polymers. Some of the examples of hydrophilic polymers are polyethylene glycol ethers, cellulose, proteins, polyamides, polyacrylic amides, ethoxylated graft polymers, and polyurethanes with polyethylene glycol ether soft segments. The polymers offer resistance to protein absorption. Thus, rising adoption of the polymers for coating applications is improving the growth of the market.

The medical devices & equipment segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The medical devices & equipment segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to increasing healthcare expenditure, rising demand for advanced medical technology and lubricated medical devices, and increasing usage of hydrophilic coatings to coat instruments such as catheters, guidewires, cannulas, and short-term implanted devices. Hydrophilic coatings on medical devices & equipment create a lubricating surface that decreases the trauma and irritation caused by the insertion of a medical device in the body. Additionally, these coatings help to protect the medical devices from bacterial colonization and reduce the risks of potential infections. This coating has expanded the range of treatment areas for neurological procedures, balloon catheter angioplasty, and site-specific drug therapy. Thus rising significance of hydrophilic coatings in medical devices & equipment industry is expanding the market growth.
