TOKYO, June 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to Acumen Research & Consulting, the global antimicrobial plastics market size was valued at USD 26,981 Million in 2021 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030 and reach the market size of USD 51,468 Million by 2030.
Plastics are incredibly significant materials that give several benefits in both individual and social lives. Plastics are constantly piling up in the environment, and due to their poor biodegradability ratio, this problem will remain for centuries. Until recently, oceans were thought to be litter dumping grounds, resulting in serious environmental issues from persistent poisons. However, plastic and plastic particle waste endangers or kills aquatic creatures and penetrates the food chain, causing health issues. The development of concepts and methods to reduce marine plastic pollution is in high demand.

To mitigate such environmental repercussions, studies show that antimicrobial compounds can extend the longevity of a plastic product. Once incorporated into the plastic, they will attempt to limit the presence of microorganisms, which can cause the plastic to degrade faster. This means that an antibacterial plastic product will remain longer, making it easier to harvest if it is disposed of carelessly.
Antibacterial plastic is a type of plastic that has the ability to kill or limit the spread of bacteria such as molds, pathogens, algae, and microorganisms that can infect the plastic. Antimicrobial polymers employ antimicrobial compounds to protect a polymer’s surface from microbe formation and to provide increased surface protection between extensive cleanings. Antimicrobial treatments protect against microbial breakdown and can lower the amount of some product-damaging bacteria when contrasted to an untreated surface. Furthermore, antimicrobial polymers are gaining popularity because they are more hygienic, reduce biofilm formation, and protect against discoloration and bad odors. Furthermore, because antimicrobial plastics are less inexpensive than ordinary plastic, it is used in a variety of applications.

Global Antimicrobial Plastics Market Growth Aspects
Rising urbanization, greater demand from the packaging and hospitality industries and higher disposable incomes all contribute to market expansion. Antimicrobial polymers also have improved chemical stability, chemical and heat resistance, high stiffness, and mechanical characteristics. Furthermore, antimicrobial plastics have several benefits to the market such as increased hygiene awareness, improved lifestyle habits, and the replacement of conventional materials with plastics. Additionally, the market is being driven by rising demand for antimicrobial plastics in end-use sectors such as building construction, automotive, consumer items, and packaging. Increased R&D expenditures for enhanced density and efficiency production costs are predicted to create antimicrobial plastics with potential markets. However, constraints such as environmental and safety restrictions, as well as government instructions on the use of plastics, impede the growth of the antimicrobial plastics market. In addition, the global antimicrobial plastic business is hampered by fluctuating raw material prices.
COVID 19 Epidemic And Growing Concerns About Antimicrobial Plastics, Drive The Market
Despite the face protection, social distance, and severe hygiene practices, sterilizing every surface is almost impossible. As a result, self-cleaning qualities are necessary to neutralize contaminated bacteria and limit their spread. With a relatively high proportion of COVID-19 cases in the world, antimicrobial polymers in a variety of applications are in high demand. Antibacterial polymers are suitable for non-toxic polymer equipment because of their strong antibacterial activity, durability, hardness, and visibility. The increased demand for medical equipment is driving the growth of antimicrobial polymers in the healthcare industry. Demand for antimicrobial plastics in the healthcare and medical industries are driven by the growing need to repel surface diseases as well as increased awareness about antimicrobial polymers.
