Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA) launches comprehensive analysis of industry segments, market trends, growth drivers, market share, size and demand forecasts on the global antimicrobial glass market. Market segmentation includes Active Ingredient (Silver and Other Active Ingredients).
Growing number of food poisoning cases primarily in the US and Europe with consumption of Salmonella-tainted salmon in recent past forced industry vendors to adopt safety measures. Moreover, several people fell sick due to consumption of contaminated food, which raised food safety standards and people started using antibacterial glass which meets hygiene requirements in food and beverage industry. Antibacterial glass in this particular industry is used for prolonged storage of food in glass containers by minimizing growth of bacteria and at the same time limiting multiplication of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms. In buildings, apartments, and houses, antibacterial glass is mainly used in windows and doors, household equipment, and bathroom showers to restrict the spread of bacteria. In the residential industry, architectural solutions of Antibacterial glass used on mirrors and other surfaces prevent formation and spread of bacteria which is further expected to drive demand for antibacterial glass in residential sector.
Silver is the most widely used active ingredient in the anti-bacterial glass market, with a 90.4% share due to its exceptional attributes in comparison to other ingredients. Silver ions that are diffused on the top layer of antibacterial glass destroy bacteria after reacting with it. The adoption of silver-based antibacterial glass is expected to grow in areas which have warm and humid conditions. The glass provides safety against bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeruginosa, escherichia coli as well as fungi including candida albicans and aspergillus niger. The different forms of silver that are employed to restrict microbes include silver nanoparticles, silver zeolite, and silver salts. Antibacterial glass that is copper-based protects from bacteria by damaging it. Antibacterial glass has the capability to destroy about 99.9% bacteria. Silver-based antimicrobial coatings have long been used in medical devices, given their ability to effectively combat gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and in certain cases yeast organisms like Candida albicans. Further, silver coatings have been widely adopted due to their non-toxicity when in contact with human fluids and tissue. Typical silver-based antimicrobial solutions include silver-zirconium hydrogen phosphate, silver-glass, silver-zeolites, silver cation ion exchange systems, and elementary silver compounds, among others. The ability to produce silver cations is the key to antimicrobial action in many of the silver based systems. Among the several silver based systems, microban silver-glass technology ranks high as it is characterized by highly efficient silver cation release mechanisms; it can be integrated into silicone without causing any impact on the base material's mechanical properties; and has good control over release rates.
