North America Anti-Microbial Additives Market was worth USD 0.8 billion in 2021 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 5.81%, to reach USD 1.07 billion by 2026. The Antimicrobial additives are chemical ingredients which prevent bacterial, fungal, and algal growth in materials that are exposed to high levels of ultraviolet radiations, unsanitary conditions and moisture. These additives are primarily used in applications such as plastics, papers, paints & coatings, textiles, rubber, inks and fabric care to inhibit the growth of undesirable microorganisms and increase the longevity of the substrate.
The market is showcasing evident potential in the mentioned forecasting period. Antimicrobial additives control microbes via many different means and are very diverse. When used in the manufacturing of products they create surfaces and materials unwelcoming to microbes such as bacteria and mould. The properties of silver are high thermal stability, non-toxicity and environmental friendliness which boost the North America anti-microbial additives market.
