  • Valuable insight into future trends, details on products, and information on coating manufacturers who supply the materials, the medical device companies which use it and the members of the healthcare that influence purchases.
  • Details pertaining to technologies including alloy, ceramic, combination, energy-absorbing, energy-emitting, micro and nano, protective polymer, and surface treatment. 
  • Comprehensive profiles of major players in the industry.


This study looks at medical device coatings and surface treatments from the perspective of both the supply and demand side of the equation that is from coating manufacturers that supply the materials, the medical device companies that use it and the members of the healthcare community who influence purchases.

Consistent with the scope of the study, the format of this report is arranged to present its five-year forecasts as a series of tables. Each of those tables presents U.S. current dollar demand values for coatings and surface processes for 2012 and 2013, and the five-year period from 2014 through 2019. Separate sets of forecasts are presented for the:

  • Eight types of coatings and surface treatment technologies.
  • Nineteen healthcare areas that correspond to FDA medical device review panels.
  • United States, European Union, other developed nations and the rest of the world.

In addition to forecast tables, the report includes informational tables. These summarize FDA Freedom of Information act data about generic types of devices, their use within each healthcare area, and the regulatory pathway and burdens imposed upon them. Supplier detail includes the global distribution of production facilities, location and coating-related proprietary names. An appendix contains the abstract of major coating-related patents, including their initial assignees.

Report Highlights

  • The value of worldwide sales for all categories of coatings and surface treatment processes used in manufacturing medical devices reached $2.96 billion in 2005.
  • Fueled by an explosive growth in high-value combination products, such as arterial stents and antimicrobial-coated catheters, the global medical device coatings business will experience an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 12.4%, reaching worldwide sales of $5.31 billion by 2010.
  • The swift acceptance of drug-eluting stents as a "gold standard" treatment by surgeons around the globe suggests that the demand for other coated versions of existing medical devices will be equally swift. Our analysis further suggests that there will be a correspondingly swift acceptance of new coated devices as they are introduced.
