“Antibacterial Glass Market Size By Application (Hospitals, Food & Beverage, Military Equipment, Household/Residential), By Active Ingredient (Silver), Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2016 – 2023.”

Antibacterial Glass Market size will grow from USD 160 million in 2015 to over USD 270 million in 2023, as reported by the latest study by Global Market Insights, Inc. Growing prevalence of nosocomial infections or Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) will drive the global antibacterial glass market over the next few years.

Growing popularity of antimicrobial/antifouling coatings coupled with technological innovation will drive industry demand on a global level. Silver, with more than USD 148 million in revenue for 2015, is expected to remain the preferred active ingredient due to its low toxicity to humans and antifouling nature.

Other active ingredients include powder coatings of materials such as copper, zeolite, silicon, and titanium. Copper is slowly becoming the material of choice and dominating the other powder coatings market to a large extent and is looked at a key substitute for silver. 

Hospitals continued to dominate antibacterial glass market share in 2015, with more than USD 68 million in revenue; isolation rooms, burn units, hematology and oncology units are key application areas. Antibacterial glass provides an architectural solution to these ailments and can be used in furniture, partitions, and intensive care units among others. This segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast time-scale. Companies looking to venture into the market have been targeting hospitals as the preferred end-use industry due to the high expected demand for antibacterial glass in this sector.

Flat glass used for antibacterial glass production is made from float glass, which requires silicon dioxide (sand), sodium carbonate (soda), calcium carbonate (limestone), and other additives. While AGC’s process involves infusion of silver ions into the glass, companies such as Nippon Sheet Glass (NSG) use a combination of coatings to reduce viral contamination.

Apart from high technology markets of the U.S. and the European Union, awareness levels in large consumer markets of China, India, Brazil and other developing countries is significantly lower. This has emerged as one of the key challenges for market participants in recent times. 

There are high entry barriers to the industry, which can be attributed to infrastructure and capital investments needed for participants to manufacture on a commercial scale. Existing suppliers have been trying to establish themselves on a broader level, and have float tanks and production sites across the globe.
