Rise in development of sustainable antimicrobial additives

The manufacturing of antimicrobial additives results in emission of volatile organic components. These volatile organic components cause health related disorders such as conjunctival irritation, fatigue, skin problems and others. Therefore, the regulations on antimicrobial additives has increased along with growing public awareness. The manufacturers focus on development of sustainable and non-hazardous products. For instance, Henkel AG & Co. KGAA developed sustainable polyurethane adhesives, with no added formaldehyde for building products. Moreover, many manufacturers such as Sika AG, is focused on innovating sustainable antimicrobial additives products. Therefore, the development of non-hazardous and sustainable antimicrobial additives is projected to drive the market.

The rise in decorative coating and top coat protection applications

Silver based additives form a cost-effective solution for paints and decorative coatings. The antimicrobial additives are incorporated in the inks and lacquers.
