Dublin, Oct. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Growth Opportunities for Global Antimicrobial Technologies Enabled by COVID-19" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Antimicrobial technology has previously seen wide adoption in antimicrobial additives, coatings, and films in consumer health applications.
However, with the emergence of COVID-19, the demand for antimicrobial technology has driven innovations, such as graphene nanoparticles (NPs), photocatalytic additives, and antimicrobial polymer nanomaterials, in developing high-temperature resistance, non-toxic antimicrobial disinfectants, and long-lasting antimicrobial technology adoption in consumer health, building and construction, automotive, and consumer goods applications.
Antimicrobial technology materials include antimicrobial polymers; composites, metal-based antimicrobial agents; nanomaterials; natural-based antimicrobial agents; antimicrobial peptides (AMPs); and other materials, such as phenolics, amidines, and biguanides.
Due to their stable structure, metal ions and metal-oxide ions have found use in medical and food packaging applications. The use of ultra-thin two-dimensional materials like black phosphorus and graphene on antimicrobial surfaces has been a focus of technology development initiatives following the outbreak of COVID-19.
In addition to antimicrobial surfaces, implants, medical devices, food packaging, building and construction materials, and textiles have all experienced a spike in interest for antimicrobial coatings.
The need for active packaging that exhibits high antimicrobial features for food and personal care applications following COVID-19 has prompted industry stakeholders and researchers to continue pursuing their work with natural antimicrobials such as chitin-chitosan and peptides to develop biodegradable, safe, yet high-performance antimicrobial films.
The research will answer the following questions:
- What factors will drive antimicrobial technology adoption post COVID-19?
- What challenges and impediments restrain antimicrobial technology adoption?
- What initiatives are industry participants undertaking to accelerate adoption across industries?
- What previous challenges does antimicrobial technology adoption across applications address?
