Medical device coatings (MDC) are materials that provide greater flexibility or adjustability to the physicians and reduce the thrombogenicity in patients. These materials enable reduced injury to the blood vessels and help to lower the friction between medical devices and tissue. These materials provide wetting, uniform adhesion, wear resistance, and coating homogeneity. The global medical device coatings market is anticipated to grow during the forecast period, owing to rise in preference for implantable & non-implantable medical equipment, growth in the number of private & public hospitals, and increase in demand for coatings due to their improved biocompatibility between live tissue and medical devices.
