To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

The value chain of antimicrobial additives starts with the raw material required for manufacturing various products with antimicrobial qualities. The basic raw materials used for producing antimicrobial additives are silver, copper, and zinc. Different types of processes such as injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding are used in the manufacturing of products with antimicrobial qualities. Antimicrobial additives are mixed with polymers for making masterbatches. These antimicrobial additives are used in plastic, metal, and ceramic during manufacturing process and then supplied to the different end-use industries. Major value is added to the antimicrobial additives during the manufacturing process. A great amount of effort and expertise is required to manufacture antimicrobial products suitable for different end-use industries. The major end-use industries where these manufacturers supply antimicrobial additives include healthcare, food & beverage, packaging, construction, automotive, and others.

The global market size of antimicrobial additives is projected to reach USD 3.95 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 6.7% between 2016 and 2021. The growing packaging industry in all regions is expected to generate demand and drive the antimicrobial additives market during the forecast period. The packaging industry accounted for more than 26% of the antimicrobial additives market in 2015. Silver possesses properties such as non-toxicity, environmental friendliness, and high thermal stability which boost the global antimicrobial additives market.

The healthcare industry dominated the antimicrobial additives market during the forecast period, followed by the packaging industry in 2015. The packaging industry is projected to witness the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. The growth is mainly due to the rising demand for antimicrobial packaging for food, pharmaceutical, consumer goods, and industrial applications.

The antimicrobial additives market is classified on the basis of application, namely, plastic, paints & coatings, pulp & paper, and others. It is dominated by the plastic application because plastic restrains the growth of microorganisms and helps in preventing harm caused by the presence of bacteria, fungi, and other parasites. The paints & coatings application is projected to register the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021, in terms of value.

The antimicrobial additives market is classified on the basis of type, namely, inorganic (silver, copper, and zinc) and organic (OBPA, DCOIT, and Triclosan). Silver is the major type of antimicrobial additive and accounted for the maximum share of the market in 2015. This is due to its non-toxic, environmental friendly, and high thermal stability properties.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for antimicrobial additives. The growing end-use industries such as healthcare and packaging in the region are expected to drive the increasing demand for antimicrobial additives. The Middle East & Africa is projected to be the second fastest-growing market between 2016 and 2021. This growth is attributed to the rising packaging industry in the region.

Antimicrobial Additives Market

The major factor restraining the growth of the antimicrobial additives market is the high raw material price and stringent regulations. The basic raw materials used in the manufacture of antimicrobial additives products are silver, copper, and zinc. The cost of these raw materials is very high. The high cost of silver antimicrobials limits their use in various products, especially in the developing regions of Asia-Pacific and South America. This issue restrains the growth of the market. Some of the key players of the antimicrobial additives market are BASF SE (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Clariant AG (Switzerland), A. Schulman, Inc. (U.S.), Polyone Corporation (U.S.), Sanitized AG (Switzerland), Microban International (U.S.), Biocote Limited (U.K.), King Plastic Corporation (U.S.), and Steritouch Ltd. (U.K.). These players compete with each other with respect to prices, and offer wide range of products to meet the market requirements.
