Cleanroom refers to a room in which concentration of air borne particulate matter (such as dust, hair, bacteria, and fungus) is controlled. A cleanroom is constructed in a manner to minimize the generation, introduction and retention of particles inside the room; this is done by maintaining suitable temperature, pressure and humidity conditions. Globally, the cleanroom technology market is witnessing significant growth due to increasing demand for certified products, sterilized pharmaceutical products, and its wide applications in the manufacture of aseptic implants and medical equipment.
In addition, rising regulatory concerns regarding the packaging, manufacturing, and processing of better quality products, and the safety of people associated with such work are driving the cleanroom technology market. However, factors such as lack of experienced professionals and high cost associated with the setting up and maintenance of cleanrooms are restraining the growth of the global market for cleanroom technology. The global cleanroom technology market was estimated to be USD 3,156.0 million in 2014. It is likely to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2014 to 2020, and reach a value of USD 4,290.1 million by 2020.
Based on geography, North America is the largest segment of the global cleanroom technology market. The North America cleanroom technology market was estimated to be USD 1,209.3 million in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 1,580.8 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2014 to 2020. On the basis of product type, cleanroom equipment is the largest segment in the overall cleanroom technology market. On the basis of the application, the pharmaceutical segment dominates the global cleanroom technology market. On the basis of construction, the cleanroom technology market has been classified into standard/drywall cleanrooms, hardwall cleanrooms, softwall cleanrooms and terminal boxes/ pass-through cabinets; of which standard/drywall cleanrooms are the largest segments.
Kimberly-Clark Corporation, E.l. Du Pont De Nemours And Company and Illinois Tool Works, Inc. are the leading players in the global market for cleanroom technology. Some of the other major players include Royal Imtech N.V., M+W Group, Azbil Corporation, Clean Air Products, Inc. and Alpiq Group.
Cleanroom technology is used for the manufacture of aseptic medical goods or for research and development purposes. Cleanroom refers to an enclosed space maintained in such a way so as to reduce contamination during processing. They can control the concentration of airborne particles such as particulates (including dust, hair, and skin), chemicals (including oil, grease, metal ions, and vapors), microorganisms (including bacteria, and fungus), and radiations (including ultraviolet radiations). Temperature, humidity, pressure, electrostatic charge, magnetic flux, and other factors inside a cleanroom can also be manipulated as per the need. Various equipment, such as high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) filters, fan filter units, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, air diffusers and showers, laminar air flow systems, and bio-safety cabinets, are used to maintain aseptic conditions inside a cleanroom. Cleanroom consumables can be segmented into safety consumables and cleaning consumables.
North America dominates the global cleanroom technology market. This is due to improved healthcare infrastructure and technological advancements. Asia is expected to experience a high growth rate in the global cleanroom technology market in the future. This is due to improving healthcare infrastructure, rising popularity of certified products, and increasing adoption of cleanroom technology by the healthcare industry in Asian countries.
