“Antimicrobial additives market projected to register a CAGR of 6.7%”

The market size of antimicrobial additives is projected to reach USD3.95 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 6.7% between 2016 and 2021. The growth is primarily triggered by its huge demand from the Asia-Pacific region and growing end-use industries such as healthcare, packaging, food & beverage, construction, and automotive. The government proposals in Asia-Pacific to improve public infrastructure and rising cash-intensive non-residential construction are driving the antimicrobial additives market. This, in turn, is contributing to the increasing demand for antimicrobial additives in the Asia-Pacific region.

“Silver based antimicrobial additives are expected to be the fastest-growing market”

Silver-based antimicrobial additives are projected to grow with the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. Higher demand for silver antimicrobial additive sowing to their on-toxic, environmental friendly and high thermal stability properties is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Also, the increasing demand from various end-use industries such as healthcare, packaging, food & beverage, construction, and automotive is fueling the growth of the silver-based antimicrobial additives market. Since silver is the major type of antimicrobial additive, its growing demand drives the antimicrobial additives market.

“Asia-Pacific projected to be fastest-growing market during the forecast period”

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the largest and the fastest-growing market for antimicrobial additives, globally. Domestic and foreign investments in the key sectors such as healthcare, packaging, construction, and food & beverage have been consistently growing for the past decade.
