The market is showcasing evident potential in the mentioned forecasting period. Antimicrobial additives control microbes via many different means and are extremely diverse. When used in the manufacturing of products they create surfaces and materials inhospitable to microbes such as bacteria and mould. The properties of silver are non-toxicity, high thermal stability and environmental friendliness which boost the global Anti-Microbial Additives Market.

The Antimicrobial additives are chemical ingredients that prevent bacterial, fungal, and algal growth in materials which are exposed to high levels of ultraviolet radiations, moisture, and unsanitary conditions. These additives are primarily used in applications such as plastics, papers, paints & coatings, textiles, inks, rubber, and fabric care to inhibit the growth of unwanted microorganisms and increase the longevity of the substrate.

The market is driven by the rapid growth of the healthcare and packaging industries in the Asia-Pacific region. In the recent times, China, India, Japan and South Korea are observing high demand of antimicrobial additives, majorly due to the growing urbanization, aging population, and increasing lifestyle diseases. This is fueling the growth of the antimicrobial additives market in this region. Properties like non-toxicity, environmental friendliness, flammability, sustainability, and high thermal stability of silver antimicrobial additives contribute to the growth of the antimicrobial additives market. The major factor restraining the growth of the antimicrobial additives market is the high cost of raw materials and stringent regulations. The basic raw materials used in the manufacturing of antimicrobial additives products are silver, copper, and zinc. The high price of silver antimicrobials restricts their use in various products, particularly in the developing regions of Asia-Pacific and South America. These issues restrain the growth of the market.
