Global Hydrophilic Coatings Market Size 2026 | Outlook by Growth Rate, Share, Gross Margin, Business Strategies and Forecast Analysis By Aculon, Biocoat Incorporated, Harland Medical Systems, Koninklijke DSM N.V. and others

Hydrophilic coatings are employed to reduce surface friction and enhance lubricity. The term “hydrophilic” means that it is water loving. In other words, it readily wets out when exposed to moisture. Most hydrophilic coatings consist of a loosely cross-linked polymer coating that will readily uptake liquid when exposed to a source. This coating that surrounds the device acts like a microscopic sponge and the water (or other liquid) provides excellent low friction characteristics as long as the coating remains wet. Devices coated with these coatings demonstrate pull forces as low as 3 grams and CoF values as low as 0.01.This high level of lubricity enables devices to navigate tortuous anatomical pathways while reducing tissue irritation and adding to patient comfort.

Market Analysis: Global Hydrophilic Coatings Market is expected to rise from its initial estimated value of USD 10.64 billion in 2018 to an estimated value of USD 18.76 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 7.35% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. This rise in market value can be attributed to the factors that increase the performance of the products these coatings are applied upon.
