Cleanroom technology is used to create a given contained space with reduced particulate contamination while maintaining other environmental parameters of temperature, pressure, and humidity. These are used by industries to render their products free from the adverse effects of small particles during the manufacturing process. The global cleanroom technology market is projected to grow at USD 6.5 billion in 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period 2022-2030. The cleanroom technology market is segmented into products, construction, end user, and geography. Among the available product categories, consumables lead the global cleanroom technology market in 2021.
Insight by Product
The various products used to offer cleanroom technology solutions are consumables and equipment. The largest market share is of consumables registering 65.1% in 2020. This large share is due to the large volume of consumables used to maintain cleanrooms. The consumables are also cost-effective, since these products have negligible costs of installation, and also have a low maintenance cost. The commonly used cleanroom consumables include safety consumables such as apparel and gloves, and cleaning consumables such as vacuum systems, disinfectants, and wipes.
Additionally, the equipment used in cleanroom technology are heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, fan filter units (FFUs), air showers, laminar airflow systems, and biosafety cabinets. The industry players are developing technologically advanced equipment that will lead the category to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
Insight by Construction
On the basis of construction, the market is characterized by standard cleanrooms, hardwall cleanrooms, pass-through cabinets, and softwall cleanrooms. Hardwall cleanrooms held the major share in the global cleanroom technology market in 2020, owing to the economical benefits associated with it softwall cleanrooms. Additionally, the large stability and fast installation facilities of hardwall cleanrooms mark its high demand during the forecast period.
Insight by End User
The various end-user of cleanroom technology includes pharmaceutical industries, biotechnology industries, and medical device companies. Cleanroom solutions are also used widely in the life science industry, food and beverages, hospitals and academic research institutes, and semiconductor industries. The pharmaceutical industries are the major shareholder based on end-user for the cleanroom technology market and is also estimated to lead based on size during the forecast period. The category’s large size is due to the increase in the number of biopharmaceutical industries, with the requirement for certified cleanroom components.
The rising demand for technologically advanced cleanroom products, with increasing industry preference for certified products, are the primary factors to drive the growth of the global cleanroom technology market. The rise in the prevalence of infectious diseases, particularly in developing economies requires the adoption of cleanroom technology, which is projected to drive the growth of the market in the future. Moreover, the growth of sterilized pharmaceutical products and the rise in demand for cleanroom technology solutions in various industrial practices are factors that will drive the growth of the market.
Compliance with stringent government regulations with respect to cleanroom technology solutions is another driving force to the growth of the market. The key players in order to meet the varying requirements of their diverse customer base, offer customized solutions of cleanrooms, that provides ample opportunity to the manufacturers to expand their customer base and also favors industrial growth, globally.
North American cleanroom technology market held the largest share of 42.4% in 2020, majorly due to factors such as the rise in the adoption rate of cleanroom technology solutions, compliance with government regulations for cleanrooms, and the presence of several major players in the region.
Moreover, cleanroom technology products are expected to witness the highest demand in Asia-Pacific, during the forecast period. Factors such as the rise in research and development facilities in several industry sectors and the increase in the prevalence of infectious diseases are expected to drive the growth of the regional cleanroom technology market. Furthermore, the government initiative to develop and maintain healthcare infrastructure by increasing healthcare expenditure as a percentage of the GDP is also a driving force for the growth of the cleanroom technology market in Asia-Pacific.
GLOBAL CLEANROOMROOM TECHNOLOGY MARKET SHARE, BY REGION (2020)
Clean Air Products Inc. introduced its CAP-583 stainless steel hardware modular cleanrooms. The new modular cleanroom system has stainless steel doors and frames integrated into wall panels and all doors have National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved hinges for easy cleaning. The modular system is available in a variety of modular sizes and can be customized to the application.
In March 2018, William Hughes Group, after its acquisition of the ultrasonic cleaning company AC Services in 2015, installed an 80m² high specification clean room rated at Class 7 in accordance with ISO 14644-1. Ultrasonic cleaning can be utilized by companies to subcontract their cleaning requirements for aerospace and hydraulics, defense, nuclear, medical, electronics, and oil and gas industries.
