The demand for hydrophilic coatings is high in medical devices and equipment industry as the industry consumes a significant amount of the overall coatings manufactured. The product creates a lubricious surface resulting in the reduction of medical device stiction, thereby aiding the device positioning by reducing the risk of infection. As a result, the demand for the product is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period.

The surface wettability of materials plays a key role in ensuring the safety and comfort of the drivers, irrespective of the weather conditions. As a result, the hydrophilic coatings are applied on the windshields and mirrors of the vehicles. In addition, the coating generates a good water run-off which enables its use in the evaporators of automotive systems, driving its demand in automotive industry.

The hydrophilic coating market is highly competitive on account of low product differentiation. The major players in the market including Biocoat Inc., Aculon Inc., Harland Medical Systems Inc. and Surmodics Incorporated are constantly undergoing strategic alliances and diverse product innovations to gain market share.
