Regulatory Mandates, Governmental Norms Boost Global Cleanroom Consumables Market

Typically, a cleanroom refers to a facility for scientific research or manufacturing that has a highly controlled environment. So much so that in a clean room, the degree of presence of even common pollutants such as dust, chemical vapors, airborne microbes, and aerosol particles is specified by the permissible level of particulate matter per cubic meter and particle size specifications. In a typical city environment, the ambient air outside a cleanroom comprises 35,000,000 particles with a diameter of 0.5 mmm and more per cubic meter, which corresponds to an ISO 9 cleanroom equivalent: the lowest level of cleanroom standards.

In a nutshell, a cleanroom is any contained space that is equipped to reduce particulate contamination and keep a check on other environmental parameters such as humidity, temperature, and pressure. Common sources of contamination include facility (walls, room air, paints, leaks etc.), tools, people, and the products themselves (flakes, chips, debris). 

What Causes Contamination of Cleanrooms?

Out of these, people cause the highest contamination of a cleanroom environment. To support this, it is proven that the mere presence of an individual produces 100,000 particles every minute. Thus, the movement of individuals and every object that they come in contact with in a cleanroom need to be free of contamination. With stringent regulatory mandates in place to keep a check on product quality, especially in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, cleanrooms and their associated products, which are commonly known as cleanroom consumables, will witness strong demand in the foreseeable years.

The advantages of cleanrooms and cleanroom consumables are myriad. First and foremost, the utilization of cleanroom consumables facilitates smoother manufacturing, as the environment and equipment are checked for permissible contamination levels, which helps in maintaining product uniformity and product quality as well.

Thus, cleanroom consumables are of paramount importance for scientific research and manufacturing units that are involved with human gains and human safety directly or indirectly.

Analysts at Transparency Market Research (TMR) have charted some of the vital product segments and regional markets that have come to the fore in the global cleanroom consumables market in recent years:
  1. In a cleanroom environment, safety consumables and cleaning consumables are the two major products segments that are used. Lotions, apparels, and hand cleaners are some of the safety products, whereas wipes, mop systems, bags, labels, sticky mats, cleanroom documentation, tapes, and containers are some of the cleaning consumable products.
  2. Some of the major industries that utilize cleanroom consumables are pharmaceuticals, hospitals, manufacturing, biotechnology, semiconductor, and medical devices. The utility of cleanroom consumables for these industries lies in their importance for human safety and healthcare.
  3. Asia Pacific will emerge as the fastest growing region for the cleanroom consumables market in the near future. This is mainly due to the rapidly growing pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries in the region.
