Medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and semiconductor industries are the primary users of cleanroom technology
The increasing application of cleanroom technology and management systems in operating theaters, life sciences, and semiconductor products is a major driver for the global cleanroom consumables market growth. The increasing usage of cleanroom control products and related consumables to avoid contamination has increased the demand. Medical, pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and semiconductor industries are the primary users of the cleanroom technology.
The market is set to display impressive growth during the forecast period with some key trends emerging, such as the increased diversity of substrate materials driven by continuously evolving end-user expectations and the rise of industry 4.o and IoT. Further, specialized manufacturing and high-tech R&D, which was once a stronghold of the US and a few European economies such as France, Nordics, and Germany, is set to expand in emerging economies with the next-generation large-scale manufacturing centers to be planned predominantly in the APAC region. The same is likely to be significantly complemented by an overwhelming rise in global automation expenditure that eventually warrants the need for sensors, power tools, and IoT interfaces, all of which can offer significant employment of cleanroom over a medium to long-term while ramping up the end-user industries’ efficiencies manifold.
Moreover, governments across the world are actively involved in setting standards for cleanroom consumables products. Consequently, they are tightening the regulatory and monitoring system, while filtering out below standard and low-quality products from the market. Asian pharma experts engaged in the manufacture and export of cleanroom consumables are making highly sophisticated products, to enable them to compete in the global pharmaceutical market and match stringent regulations and standards set by American and European governments. Hence, the increased stringency over the use of these products is expected to boost the market during the forecast period.
The global cleanroom consumables market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period 2018−2024.

The medical devices and services industry is engaged in providing services to treat patients with curative, preventive, palliative, and rehabilitative care. The major influencer in the global medical device market growth is the focus on health outcomes and cost. Currently, China is the third-largest medical device market due to its large population and strong economic growth. Other major growth drivers include increasing health awareness, aging population, greater healthcare expenditure, and strong government initiatives in building hospitals and healthcare institutes. The growth in the medical devices and services industry supports the cleanroom consumables market directly in sectors such as patient monitoring and drug delivery. The market for the medical devices in China and India is growing with stupendous growth rates, thus boosting the market in APAC. The growth can be attributed to several factors, including government incentives, reforms in the healthcare sector, and domestic demand for healthcare facilities.
The global defense spending was $1.5 trillion in 2015. The US is the leading spender, followed by China, Saudi Arabia, and the UK. The increased defense expenditure worldwide is expected to increase cleanroom applications in the defense sector. China has spent massively at an annual rate of 9% over the last two years. India, South Korea, and Japan are also increasing their defense spending due to concerns over China’s intentions, North Korea’s nuclear policy, and increasing unrest in the Middle East.
Cleanroom Consumables Market: Product Types
Strict safety regulations are expected to be the principal growth driver for the global market
Strict safety regulations imposed by the WHO, OSHA, FDA are expected to be the principal growth driver for the global cleanroom consumables market. The US, China, South Korea, and Taiwan are likely to boost the growth of the worldwide cleanroom apparel market during the forecast period. APAC dominates the cleanroom apparel market. The region is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The highest CAGR can be attributed to the growing demand for new setups, as well as the increase in semiconductor and microprocessor fabrication units from several countries, including China, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan.
Cleanroom gloves are primarily used in the semiconductor, electronics, pharmaceutical, medical, and aviation industries to prevent and control contaminants inside the clean manufacturing floors. The market growth is likely to be driven by multiple factors: the aging population, driving innovations in healthcare and disease control; stable growth forecast of the semiconductor and pharmaceutical markets due to the emergence of technologies such as IoT; growing safety concerns; government regulations for safety and efficacy of medicines and drugs.

Key Vendor Analysis
The global cleanroom consumables market is highly fragmented, with vendors offering their products at varying prices. The rapidly changing technological environment could adversely affect vendors as end-users expect innovations and upgrades. The present scenario is forcing vendors to alter and refine their unique value proposition to strengthen market presence. All key vendors have a global presence in the three major geographical regions - North America, APAC, and Europe. However, there are other vendors providing products with similar specifications at low prices. This will intensify the price war among vendors during the forecast period. The market confronts the threat of infiltration with low-quality products from Chinese vendors. Major vendors continually compete among themselves for the leading position in the market, with occasional spurts of competition coming from other local vendors.
Further, companies with better technical and financial resources can develop innovative products, which could pose a threat to competitors' products and could make their product non-competitive and even obsolete before they can recover the R&D and commercialization costs. Therefore, vendors should develop new technologies and remain abreast of the upcoming technologies to retain a competitive edge over other vendors.
Many global players are expected to expand their presence worldwide during the forecast period, especially in the fast-developing countries in APAC and Latin America, to gain more market share. Besides, improving global economic conditions would fuel the growth of the market, thereby increasing the market attractiveness for new product launches.
