Antimicrobial Additives Market Outlook – High growth of end-user industries coupled with augmented usage of silver-based products as antimicrobial additives

Growth of end-use industries such as food packaging, consumer foods and pharmaceuticals is in turn propelling growth in demand for antimicrobial additives. Rising demand for plastic packaging in consumer goods and emergence as a replacement to glass and metals in medical ventilators, heart-lung machines is backing the rising demand for antimicrobial additives. Also, amplifying use of silver-based antimicrobial additives owing to its ability to inhibit microbial growth is complementing growth in the market. Increasing demand for silver-based antimicrobial products owing to properties such as non-toxicity, longevity and eco-friendliness is expected to steer growth in the antimicrobial additives market during the forecast period.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific and MEA region are the key regions in the antimicrobial additives industry. Growing use of antimicrobial additives across the end-user industries such as packaging, healthcare, construction and automotive is the key revenue contributor in these regions. Furthermore, environmental factors such as poor sanitation, air pollution and climatic changes are supplementing rising usage of antimicrobial additives. On the other hand, presence of stringent regulations across various North American countries and increasing fluctuation in the prices of raw materials is expected to inhibit growth of the market. For instance, United States Food and Drug administration regulated the antimicrobial additives under section 409 of Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and all other related as the pesticide chemicals under section 408 of the FFDCA. Additionally, fluctuation in prices raw materials such as zinc and copper is inhibiting the growth of antimicrobial additives market. Leading companies in the market include BASF SE, The DOW Chemical Company, Clariant AG, Microban International, Sanitized AG and A. Schulman, Inc.
