Rise in Startups for Coating Medical Devices

There has been significant growth in start-up organizations that provide coatings for medical devices. These start-ups are offering robust and state-of-the-art coatings for a wide range of medical devices across key applications. Over the few years, new entrants are gaining significant traction with their novel coatings and coating technologies that are improving the effectiveness of medical devices.

Tractivus, a Spanish start-up, offers antibiofilm coatings. This start-up’s proprietary technology, PHOBOSTech, involves coating thin nanoscale layers onto a surface that offers antibacterial properties. The high hydrophobicity of the coating restricts bacterial adherence to the surface without antibiotics or drugs. The company currently focuses on urinary catheters and tracheal stents, with many more coatings in the pipeline.

Key Insights

  • The global medical device coatings market is growing at a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period.
  • Hydrophilic coatings accounted for the highest share of more than 31% in the global medical device coatings market due to their wide application on medical devices for lubricity and compatibility.
