In medical facilities it is necessary to equips materials and surfaces with a high level of hygiene using antimicrobial agents to protect them against bacteria and other microorganisms to prevent infections caused by bacteria and contribute significantly to reduce health costs. Benefits of nanoscale coatings in this sector include long lasting antimicrobial effect, constant release of the active substance, effectiveness against bacteria and other micro-organisms, no chemical impurities, easy processing, no changes in the characteristics of the equipped material, and no later declaration of the equipped material. Nanocoatings are already finding application in life sciences & health care in enabling anti-bacterial surfaces for medical catheters, added to paints and lacquers used to coat, operating tables, door knobs and door handles in hospitals and as ultra-hard porous coatings for surgical and orthopedic implants like screws, plates or joint implants.

The medical market will be a high growth area of nanoscale coatings over the next 5-10 years, and this is reflected in the high number of companies exploiting technology in this area, especially in the anti-microbial domain. The main market driver in this area is the prevention of the spread of deadly infections in medical facilities. Drug-resistant bacteria, the so-called "superbugs," are a growing problem in hospitals worldwide and poor hygiene among staff is often blamed for the spread of such infections. They kill about 25,000 people a year in Europe and about 19,000 in the United States.

There are now numerous nanomaterial based-products on the market for household care, applied as permanent coatings and protective sprays. One example is easy clean coatings that can be applied to sanitary surfaces in bathrooms, toilets, kitchens or window panes, where frequent contact with water, oil and dirt can quickly soil surfaces. These treatments are extremely popular in German and Asian markets.

Most multinational household care brand owners are conducting R&D efforts in nanocoatings, viewing the area as both, a market opportunity and a threat; self-cleaning and easy clean surfaces can simply be cleaned with water, negating the need for chemical cleaners. Nanoscale silver for example can also be incorporated into an anti-bacterial coating allowing for long term germ repellence. Photocatalytic TiO2 coatings have also been demonstrated to be more long-lasting and effective than standard anti-bacterial cleansers.
Products have yet to reach the market from brand owners, but will likely hit the shelves in the next few years; top up applications for surfaces that may deteriorate or lose their effectiveness over time is one potential opportunity. It is likely that cleaning will still be necessary; however nanocoatings will make it less frequent and easier. Nanocoatings for the Household Care Industry covers all the latest product innovators, products impacting the household care industry and estimated market revenues for this growing market.
