Advancements in medical device designing have led to improvement of existing medical devices as well as introduction of new technologies. These devices are made of metals such as stainless steel, aluminum or ceramic such as bioglass or alumina. Not all these materials are compatible when in contact with tissues & body fluids and can cause complications, for instance, infection and blood clots. Coatings help to remove these difficulties. Some coatings help to make the device biocompatible while others help to prevent microbial infections. It may also be hydrophilic or hydrophobic according to the requirement. Coatings also help to reduce static and kinetic friction between two different surfaces. Based on properties, medical coatings can be broadly classified into hydrophilic and hydrophobic coatings. However, there are other types of coatings such as antimicrobial, protective, optical, lubricious, pharmacological and so. The most commonly used chemistries in coatings are parylene, silicones and fluoropolymers.
The global medical coatings market by value is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2014 to 2019. The high growth is forecasted to be in the Asia-Pacific due to rise of medical device manufacturing in the region. Europe is estimated to have the second highest growth around 6.37% from 2014 to 2019. Coatings are widely used on surgical and institutional equipments, medical devices such as cardiovascular, optical, orthopedic, endoscopic, radiology devices, implants and even on drug delivery systems. Coatings are used in a wide variety of medical devices and equipment. Surgical as well as institutional equipments use coatings. Orthopedic devices, cardiovascular devices, optical devices, endoscopic devices, radiology devices as well as implants use different types of coatings. It can also find use in advanced applications, such as drug delivery and biological interactions. Order a copy of this report at http://www.reportsnreports.com/purchase.aspx?name=327670 .

Coatings used for each application needs to be compatible with the substrate on which it is applied and should withstand the sterilization, cleaning, storage and other conditions in which the device might be used. Hence, before establishing a relationship with the coating manufacturer, especially in case of hydrophilic coatings, the client needs to work with the vendor to determine if the coating is appropriate for the specific device.
