Hydrophilic Coating Market

Market Insights on Hydrophilic Coating covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Hydrophilic Coating Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016 - 2026

Hydrophilic Coating Market: Overview

Hydrophilic coatings are wettable and low friction coating applied to the medical devices such as guide wires, catheters and cannulas. It reduces the occurrences of inflammation and damage caused by the medical devices, when they are used on a patient.

These coatings exhibit water attracting characteristics. Hydrophilic coatings reacts on water and produces hydrogel material, which are lubricious and wettable and suitable for biological interactions. They are also used in optical devices such as camera windows, outdoor surveillance, outdoor displays etc.

Hydrophilic coatings are used in automotive parts such as body for glazing and rear-view mirrors as an anti-fog agent. In October 2016, Surmodics, Inc. launched new series of hydrophilic coatings named Serene coatings. They can be used on different substrates of medical devices used in clinical areas such as peripheral, coronary, neurovascular etc.

Hydrophilic Coating Market: Drivers and Restraints

The conventional lubricative coatings such as silicone oils and glycerine, which are used instead of hydrophilic coatings have many disadvantages, which is the major driver for the growth of global hydrophilic coating market.

These coatings get separated from the medical equipment, when being used and reduces the lubrication causing discomfort and high injury risk. Hydrophilic coatings are used wide range of applications ranging from automotive, medical devices, optical devices etc., which is expected to drive the consumption of this type of coatings.

Automotive manufacturers are continuously striving to enhance the safety and performance of the vehicle. Hydrophilic coating has significant role in improving the safety precautions and overall look of the vehicle, which is anticipated to boost the growth of global hydrophilic coating market.
