Hydrophilic coatings are coatings that exhibit water attracting properties by participating in hydrogen bonding with water. Hydrophilic coatings are wettable and lubricious and can be applied to a variety of surfaces and materials. These coatings are generally ionic and negatively charged which aides in the formation of hydrogen bonds with water. In medical devices, hydrophilic coatings are used to create lubricious surfaces which reduce the trauma and irritation caused by the insertion of a medical device into the body. Hydrophilic coatings also help prevent bacterial colonization of the medical device and thus help to reduce the possibility of infections.
Medical sector is expected to have the highest demand for hydrophilic coatings in the coming years owing to its requirement in medical devices. There has been a massive increase in the expenditure on high-end medical devices due to the continuous need for proper medical and healthcare facilities, increasing health awareness and ageing population.
Hydrophilic coatings are required on windshields and mirrors of vehicles since the coating provides a water run-off, hence giving safety and comfort to the driver of the vehicle. With the rising demand for lightweight and electronic vehicles globally, the demand for hydrophilic coatings from the sector is expected to grow at a rapid pace. Additionally, countries such as China, India, Brazil, and France have witnessed an increase in the total automotive production in 2017, which provided a boost to the demand for hydrophilic coatings from the automotive sector.
