The Global Market for Advanced Bactericidal & Viricidal Coatings and Surfaces provides an indepth market analysis of Advanced Bactericidal & Viricidal Coatings and Surface solutions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the latest technology developments. Industry interest in these types of coatings products was previoulsy hindered by high price, and mainly limited to food packaging and healthcare settings. The pandemic however, has created a significant market opportunity for companies to develop Advanced Bactericidal & Viricidal Coatings and Surface solutions that can counter the health hazards caused by bacteria and viruses for a wide range of applications.
Advanced Bactericidal & Viricidal Coatings have numerous applications, for virtually all surfaces including:
fabric (mask, gloves, doctor coats, curtains, bed sheet)
metal (lifts, doors handle, nobs, railings, public transport)
wood (furniture, floors and partition panels)
concrete (hospitals, clinics and isolation wards)
plastics (switches, kitchen and home appliances).
Report contents include:
Current technology and materials used in Advanced Bactericidal & Viricidal Coatings and Surfaces.
