As per the WHO, out of every 100 patients in acute care hospitals, 15 patients in middle- and low-income countries and 7 patients in high-income countries will be affected with at least one HAI during their hospitalization, and on average, 1 in every 10 affected patients will die from HAI. As per a new study published by researchers with the CDC, hospitals in the U.S. observed a significant increase in HAI in 2020, largely as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the need for the installation of cleanrooms in hospitals has significantly increased to overcome the growing incidence of HAIs.

Within hospitals, cleanrooms are integrated into burn units, surgery suits, isolation areas, and, in certain cases, corridors, which are regularly exposed to biohazardous material. The COVID-19 pandemic boosted industry growth due to the increased demand for cleanroom technologies. The growing need to maintain a contamination-free environment during sample collection & testing of COVID-19 suspected cases and rising R&D activities to develop vaccines against COVID-19 have driven biopharmaceutical & pharmaceutical companies to significantly invest in the market to maintain a contamination-free environment In addition, government initiatives undertaken to escalate the production of protective masks during the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to the growth of the market.

Equipment Insights

On the basis of equipment, the cleanroom air filters segment held the largest share of more than 36.35% in 2022.
