Report summary

Microban International, headquartered in Huntersville, North Carolina, USA, is an established leader in global markets for antimicrobial technologies and odour control. It offers a portfolio of products comprising additives, coatings, finishes and treatments which provide protection against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, mildews, moulds and yeasts.

The company supplies its products to a wide range of sectors, including automotive, consumer electronics, construction, education, food services, health care, home appliances, packaging, and textiles and clothing. In fact, it caters to more than 300 companies in 30 countries across Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Canada, Mexico and the USA.

However, Microban International faces fierce competition from local rivals in North America and innovative companies in Europe who are seeking to maintain leading positions in their respective markets. Looking ahead, Microban International's future looks bright--especially as global markets for antimicrobial textiles and odour control textiles are forecast to grow.

However, in order to capitalise on future market growth, Microban International must respond to concerns about the impact which its products have on the environment and on human health. For example, concerns have been raised about the toxicity of metals in odour control treatments, the use of potentially harmful nanoparticles in antimicrobial technologies, and the slow rate at which products treated with antimicrobial agents biodegrade.
