The Global Antibacterial Glass market has been witnessing growth in the demand for antibacterial glass from the Food and Beverage industry. The major reason behind this growth is the increased number of instances of food poisoning. Many recent food poisoning cases in the US and food hygiene-related issues in Europe in 2011-2012 have forced Food and Beverage industry vendors to take preventive measures. For instance, hundreds of people fell ill after consuming Salmonella-tainted salmon in the US in 2012. Also, the increasing consumer awareness about contaminated food has increased the concern for food safety. Antibacterial glass is best suited for structures where hygiene requirements have high priority. They also prevent fungi from multiplying. These factors are forcing Food and Beverage industry vendors to adopt antibacterial glass to prevent instances of food poisoning.
The increasing number of cases of HAIs is a major factor driving the growth of the Global Antibacterial Glass market. It is estimated that every year 1.7 million cases of HAIs occur in the US and 99,000 people die from such infections.
Further, the low awareness about antibacterial glass is a major challenge faced by the vendors.
