A clean room is a controlled environment, typically used for manufacturing and scientific facilities. It has low levels of pollutants, such as airborne microbes, chemical vapors, dust and aerosol particles. The level of contaminants, in a clean room, are controlled to be exact, which is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter of air of a specific particle size.
The global clean room technology market was valued at USD 3.32 billion in 2016. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.47% and is projected to reach a value of USD 4.38 billion by 2021. Cleanrooms are practically used in every industry where pollutants can affect the manufacturing process, from pharmaceuticals and semiconductor manufacturing to industries where the critical manufacturing process is common, such as aerospace, defense, optics and energy.
Some of the major drivers for the cleanroom technology market are technological advancements, rise in safety concerns and high healthcare expenditure in the developed regions. Demand for quality products, growing semi-conductor industry (especially in Asia-Pacific) and the expansion of pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries are further propelling the demand in this market. However, some of the major challenges for the global cleanroom technology market are the lack of skilled workforce and high costs of installation. The quality of products is foremost essential in this market and maintenance of quality over a long period is challenging. Moreover, the market is also witnessing a change in regulations that are becoming increasingly stringent.
In terms of equipment, HVAC systems were occupying the major share of the market in 2015, followed by HEPA & ULPA Filters and Fan Filter Units (FFUs). These three segments together comprised of a share, which was close to 60% in 2015. In terms of overall clean room technology components, cleanroom consumables are projected to witness the highest growth rate (of more than 5.3%) during the forecast period, 2016 - 2021. By end-user industries, pharmaceuticals and biotechnological industries currently occupy the major share of the market, while semi-conductor manufacturing industry is expected to witness a very high relative CAGR over the next five years.
The market is dominated by North America, followed by the European region, which is benefitting from the technological advancements and innovations taking place in the healthcare industry. However, the growing healthcare/pharmaceutical market, with the continued initiatives taken by the governments towards the safety of products, and the increasing demand for better quality healthcare products, will generate significant growth in the emerging economies by 2020. India and China will have the fastest growing markets in cleanroom technology during the forecast period (2016 - 2021).
Some of the important players of the cleanroom technology market are Royal Imtech N.V, Azbil Corporation, Taikisha Ltd, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Ardmac, Ltd and Ansell Healthcare.
