The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has positively influenced the market owing to the growing need to maintain a contamination-free environment while sample collection and testing of COVID-19 suspected cases. Rising research and development activities to develop vaccines against COVID-19 have driven pharma and biopharmaceutical companies to invest significantly in the market in order to maintain a contamination-free environment. Moreover, the significant investments in generic drug development owing to the expected expiration of 20-year patents for a number of branded drugs in the coming years is further expected to increase the demand for these products including equipment and consumables to eliminate contamination during the production procedures.

Additionally, an increase in the number of hospitals and Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs), owing to various benefits offered by them, is further increasing the demand to maintain an antimicrobial environment by minimizing the level of airborne particulates in these facilities. Government initiatives undertaken to increase the production of protective masks during the COVID-19 pandemic are further aiding the growth of the market for cleanroom technology. For instance, in April 2020, KOLMI-HOPEN (part of Medicom Group) in collaboration with the Government of France initiated the production of masks in a 14,300 square meters production site, which is equipped with an ISO 8 classified cleanroom of more than 1,000 square meters. Thus, increasing demand for these consumables and equipment, especially protective masks, due to the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide is expected to drive the market for cleanroom technology.

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the designing and manufacturing of medical devices, equipment, and consumables. During the pandemic, various medical device manufacturers have increased their production to meet ever-increasing customer demand. Since they are an integral part of the production process in the medical sector, thus the demand for these products is expected to witness growth during pandemic times.

Furthermore, the growing need for personal protective equipment (PPE) to be used during the vaccination campaigns has led to an increase in short-term contracts with providers to ensure an uninterrupted supply of cleanroom consumables and equipment during the COVID-19 scenario. The majority of the manufacturers have increased their production capacity in order to meet the increasing demand.

Product Insights

In 2020, the consumables segment dominated the market for cleanroom technology and accounted for the largest revenue share of 54.1%. The frequent use of consumables and high sales of cleanroom consumables majorly gloves, unlike cleanroom equipment, is another key factor attributable to the segment’s largest share. Cleanroom consumables are either reusable or disposable and are frequently required in production capacities in various end-use sectors such as pharma companies, biotech companies, hospitals, and diagnostic centers. The other key reasons that can be attributed to the growth of the segment are bulk purchase by manufacturing companies, and high demand for preventing contamination by personnel, convenience, and various alternatives developed by the key players.

However, the equipment segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment owing to the growing use of various cleanroom equipment including Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning System (HVAC) systems, laminar airflow units, air showers, air diffusers, fume hoods, desiccating cabinets, pass-through systems, and air filter systems. Key players are offering customized products that are cost-effective. Moreover, advancements such as flexibility of the facility construction are further driving the demand for equipment in various industrial sectors.

End-use Insights

By end use, the pharmaceutical industry segment dominated the market for cleanroom technology and accounted for the largest revenue share of 40.3% in 2020. The growth is owing to stringent regulations regarding the approval of pharmaceutical products, which has led to an increase in demand for cleanroom technology. For pharmaceutical production, air with low particulate matter is required. Installation of cleanroom technology equipment, such as HVAC, air showers, and air diffusers, ensures the highest product quality with minimum wastage and maximizes yield, and optimizes the production process. Owing to the abovementioned factors, the application of cleanroom technology in the pharmaceutical industry has increased, representing high growth potential.

However, the biotechnology industry segment is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate of 7.2% over the forecast period owing to increased acceptance of biotechnology products globally. Cleanroom technology is extremely critical for biotechnology-based operations such as R&D, biocontamination control, pilot studies, and production facilities owing to the sensitivity of processes. Thus, demand for cleanroom technology is expected to increase due to growth in the biotechnology industry, globally, over the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market for cleanroom technology and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.5% in 2020. This can be attributed to the well-established healthcare infrastructure in this region, the local presence of key pharmaceutical and medical device companies, an increase in the burden of non-communicable diseases, and a rise in awareness about cosmeceuticals and nutraceuticals. In addition, stringent regulations regarding the approval of healthcare products in this region, such as the U.S., have led to increased demand for cleanroom technology.

However, in Asia Pacific, the market is expected to grow fast over the forecast period. The pharmaceutical industry in Asia Pacific is considered the third-largest after North America and Europe. Thus, investment for developments in the healthcare industry is also rising in this region. The increase in production of generic drugs owing to patent expirations of branded drugs, growing geriatric population, and increasing burden of non-communicable diseases are the major factors driving the growth of the pharmaceutical industry in Asia Pacific, thereby attributing to the growth of the cleanroom technology market.
