Cleanroom technology and management systems are widely used in operating theaters, life sciences, and semiconductor products. The increasing importance and demand for dedicated products, including cleanroom control products and related consumables, used in cleanroom facilities to avoid contamination, is leading to the development of this global market.

Rising urbanization means higher standards of living, which imply an increased usage of electronic devices, improved medicare, demand for smart tech, increased security, and better connectivity. A diverse range of breakthrough technologies is evolving to improve lives, transform industries, connect people, and safeguard the planet for a prosperous and sustainable future, thereby, driving the growth of the global cleanroom consumables market.

The global cleanroom consumables market is estimated to reach values of over $16 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of approximately 9% during 2018-2023.

The various products available in the global cleanroom consumables market are:

1.    Apparel

Cleanroom apparel is made up of a special fabric that does not accumulate dust or particulate contaminants on its surface since they are vital components in maintaining cleanliness inside cleanrooms. Without proper cleanroom apparel, the personnel working in a cleanroom can be a source of contamination. Several industries require different types of fabrics for reusable garments thereby, driving the growth of the global cleanroom consumables market. In industries such as semiconductor, electronics, and aerospace, fabrics made of polyester or carbon grid are most appropriate.

In the medical, pharmaceutical, food and biological industries, fabrics made of a polyester or carbon stripe are preferred. For disposable apparel, non-woven fabrics are used in cleanrooms. Cleanroom apparel can be broadly categorized as disposable and launderable garments.

2.    Gloves

Cleanroom gloves cover hands for preventing particles and marking fingerprints on clean surfaces. These are primarily used in the semiconductor, electronics, pharmaceutical, medical, and aviation industries to prevent and control contaminants inside the clean manufacturing floors. Cleanroom gloves can be broadly sub-categorized into two types that includes natural latex and synthetic rubber gloves. The increasing number of geriatric population, strong growth forecast of the semiconductor and pharmaceutical markets due to the emergence of technologies like IoT, growing safety concerns, government regulations for safety, and efficacy of medicines and drugs are some of the factors attributing to the growth of the global cleanroom consumables market. The other factors are higher hygiene standards, emphasis on increased quality, and use in new markets such as food and beverage production and packaging.

3.    Wipes

Cleanroom wipes are made up of low lint cloth used in cleanrooms to wipe cleanroom contamination and spills. Berkshire provides a variety of wipes that meet the requirements and standards of the semiconductor & microelectronics, healthcare (USP 797), bio-medical & medical device, aerospace & defense, print, university & research, and automotive industries in the global cleanroom consumables market.

BioClean, another major provider of wipes in the industry, offers top quality, low-linting, ISO Class 4 and 5 compatible wipes in a range of sizes and variety of materials. The different type of cleanroom consumables available is dry cleanroom wipes, pre-saturated wipes, sterile wipes, ESD wipe, and microfiber wipes.

4.    Chemicals

Chemicals are not only used as integrated ingredients for products such as swabs and wipes but are also sometimes used in their standalone form. The choice of the chemical is dependent on the substrate type within F&B, medical and pharmaceutical cleanrooms that require large volumes of disinfectants.  Spermicidal and anti-bacterial chemicals are the widely used products in these end uses, with more than one chemical agent being often used for effectiveness in the global cleanroom consumables market. The rise of automated disinfection systems wherein disinfection robots are increasingly being sought by medical centers, research houses, clean rooms, and hospitals will propel the adoption of chemicals in the global cleanroom consumables market.

5.    Others

Cleanroom swabs are the fine-quality special material used in the cleanroom for precision surface or to apply compounds like adhesive, lubricants, or liquids on the work surface in the global cleanroom consumables market. Cleanroom swabs are broadly categorized based on the material used for making them – cotton-tipped swabs, rayon swabs, calcium alginate swabs, nylon swabs, polyester swabs, ESD swabs, and anti-static swabs. Other cleanroom consumables products available in the market are lotion & hand cleaner, stationery like cleanroom paper and ink, floor mats, tapes, labels, and mop systems, etc.

The leading vendors in the global cleanroom consumables market are DuPont, ITW – Texwipe, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Berkshire Corporation, and Aramark Corporation.
