In the year 2015, organic antimicrobial accounted for over 51% of the total global volume of additives. On account of the high toxic nature of Triclosan and oxybisphenoxarsine (OBPA) there was a restriction on usage and sales of the product. Such bans are expected to slow down the market growth over the forecast period.

The inorganic additives segment is anticipated to witness a significant growth owing to rising use of silver based additive. Silver being known to restrict microbial growth and symbolic properties like non-toxicity, durability, environmental friendliness, & good thermal stability is increasing its application as an antimicrobial agent.

In 2015, the demand for this additive was at peak at about 18.3 kilo tons. Increasing demand for these products due to rise in use of plastics as substitute instead of the conventional materials like metal and glass in may medical instruments such as aesthetic machines, medical ventilators, electrocardiograph and heart and lung machines is likely to propel the use of these products.

These products find applications in paint and coating as they help in limiting the growth of microbes on metal and wall surfaces, that may substantially damage the surfaces. The rising demand for such antimicrobial paints and coatings in construction and automotive sectors is expected to drive the industry growth in the comings years.

Owing to growing usage of hygiene products and medical equipment in Asia Pacific, healthcare sector is foreseen to witness substantial amount of growth in revenue at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2016 to 2025. The increasing demand for additives for coating medical devices such as CT scanners, infusion pumps, X-ray machines, dialysis machines, medical imaging machines is projected to augment market development.
