Cleanroom Technology Market Analysis

The Global Clean Room Technology Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. The cleanroom technology market has earned some encouraging strides on the back of adopting cleanrooms in manufacturing environments. Regulatory constraints and consumer requirements for better quality products in these environments have augmented the steady evolution of the market.

  • There is a growing demand for certified products across various end-user industries. Various quality certifications, like National Safety and Quality Health Standards (NSQHS), ISO checks, etc., have been made mandatory to ensure that the standards for manufacturing processes and manufactured products are upheld.
  • These quality certifications need products to be processed in a cleanroom environment to ensure minimum possible contamination. As a result, the global market for cleanroom technology has been witnessing significant growth over the past few years.
  • Apart from the rising demand for certified products, the growing importance of using cleanrooms in the healthcare industry is critical in driving the studied market. Increasing regulatory concerns for the betterment of the quality of healthcare products and ensuring workers’ safety in the industry are the primary reasons behind the growing importance of cleanroom environments in the healthcare industry.
  • The rapid growth of the healthcare sector in China, India, and other major developing countries offers several opportunities to develop the market studied.
  • Sectors that demand cleanroom environments had made significant manufacturing expansions in 2021, and cleanroom developers have taken part in multimillion-dollar projects for space, pharmaceutical, hi-tech, and industrial production.​
  • The majority of builds observed in the pharmaceutical sector in 2021 were in Europe and the United States. For instance, in February 2022, AES Clean Technology, a provider of high-performance cleanroom facilities within the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical sector, announced a USD 14.2 million investment to open a new manufacturing facility in Manheim Borough, Pennsylvania. The new advanced facility will serve as a manufacturing hub for the company’s modular cleanroom systems. As part of the project, AES Clean Technology planned building renovations, purchased the latest production technologies to manufacture its cleanroom products, and trained new employees.
  • The market studied is projected to benefit from the growth and investments of pharmaceutical CDMOs. For instance, in May 2022, AdvanceTEC, a company operating in cleanroom design, construction, and mission-critical process integration, announced that it had been awarded a large-scale cleanroom design-build contract serving a leading EPCM and leading biotech CDMO. As a part of the project, AdvanceTEC will be leveraging its off-site prefabrication and staging facility to enhance scheduling, site logistics, and safety. This facility is planned to be outfitted with primarily CNC, ISO 7 Class 10,000, and localized ISO 5 Class 100 clean spaces.
  • The Asia-Pacific is also a strategic location for investments in hi-tech applications. In 2021, hi-tech cleanroom investments were seen across Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong, uniformly.​ For instance, in October 2020, the Translational Research Institute (TRI) announced a clinical cleanroom facility in Australia. TRI’s T3 Cleanrooms manufacturing and training facility has been designed to help significantly increase workforce skills in cleanroom processes and advanced manufacturing.
  • Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has enabled a surge in laboratory activities. It has forced the activity of sample collections and testing of affected people with the virus, which has, in turn, stimulated the demand for consumables in the cleanroom environment.

Cleanroom Technology Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Cleanroom Technology Market according to our research experts:

Pharmaceutical Industry to Witness Significant Growth

  • The cleanroom technology market has earned some encouraging strides on the back of the adoption of cleanrooms in manufacturing environments. Regulatory constraints and consumer requirements for better quality products in these environments have augmented the steady evolution of the market.
  • The pharmaceutical industry is under continuous development with its research on subcontracting and generic medicines. Therefore, there is a need for stringent cleanroom environment conditions, and in order to meet these conditions, regulations are tightened.
  • The pharmaceutical industry has a wide range of complex finished products, which should be protected from contamination, and is critical for the workers and the products in the pharmaceutical industry. There is a dire need for protective clothing for general maintenance and people who work with active pharmaceutical ingredients in cleanroom environments.
  • Cytotoxic drugs are widely used in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. The toxicity of the drugs presents a significant health risk to the manufacturers, pharmacists, and other healthcare industry professionals, who handle these pharmaceutical drugs. Exposure to these drugs is very common in their work and can occur in different ways. In case of exposure to these drugs, a wide range of effects, such as abdominal pain, vomiting, and allergic reactions, can occur. For decreasing the risk of exposure, pharmaceutical personnel is made to use protective clothing in the handling of cytotoxic drugs to ensure safety and the highest levels of protection and maintain a cleanroom environment.
  • According to Evaluate Pharma, in 2021, the research and development (R&D) spending in the pharmaceutical industry was nearly USD 212 Billion globally, and in 2022 the spending is expected to account for USD 226 Billion.
  • The market studied is anticipated to benefit from the growth and investments of pharmaceutical CDMOs. For instance, CDMOs WuXi and Cambrex have both invested in cleanroom capacity. WuXi invested USD 240 million to construct a new vaccine manufacturing facility in Ireland.

North America to Hold a Significant Market Share

  • North America accounted for the most significant share, primarily owing to the presence of a large number of medical devices, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and biotechnological labs that are the primary users of cleanroom technology.
  • Among the countries in North America, the United States occupies a significant share of the market. At the same time, Canada is expected to witness the fastest growth rate in this region over the next five years.
  • The region is witnessing an increase in investments from government agencies and private organizations to finance the R&D activities of small companies. Initiatives are taking place at the state level as well, which are expected to generate the demand for cleanroom technologies.
  • The Texas Emerging Technology Fund, for example, is explicitly intended to help companies finance proof-of-concept research. The fund finances in biological sciences and biotechnology, as well as engineering, materials science, and information technology, and it has committed funding to individual companies with an investment ranging from USD 500,000 to USD 10 million.​
  • Cleanrooms are classified and regulated by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in the United States and Canada by ISO 14644-1. This regulation constitutes cleanroom classes from one to nine, with one having the highest level of cleanliness and nine being the least clean. The most popular classes of cleanroom environments are ISO class 7 and ISO class 8. Advances in the aerospace sector have been a significant source for cleanroom projects, with various governmental and private organizations investing in increased space for satellite production and testing.​
  • A key sector of the Canadian economy, pharmaceutical companies, are increasingly supported by the government, which offers a business-friendly environment for pharmaceutical companies, which can leverage assets for short and long-term business strategies. The complex manufacturing processes required for certain drugs that require skilled personnel, a stable political environment, and proximity to the end-users of the country are driving the growth of the pharmaceutical CMO market in Canada, in turn driving the Canadian cleanroom technology market.
