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.

INSIGHTS BY 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 industry. 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 for cleanroom chemicals, primarily cleaning and storage chemicals, was dominated by APAC with a share of 47% in 2018. The region is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The market in North America is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 7% during the forecast period
Aerospace, electronics and semiconductor, and pharmaceutical industries have tremendously contributed to the growth of the APAC cleanroom consumables market shares. The clusters of specialized research, development, and production in South Korea, China, Japan, and other countries, including Taiwan, Singapore, and India have accelerated growth in recent years. The presence of a low-cost manufacturing base in the APAC region lowers the cost by 11–22% than Europe and Latin America, thereby providing a competitive edge to the industry. The APAC region is expected to witness rapid growth due to the high demand for cleanroom facilities from several end-user industries during the forecast period.
In North America, the market for small-scale research and specialized manufacturing facilities is growing and becoming more competitive than sizeable offshore manufacturing units. However, with the trade-off between automation and labor-intensive manufacturing, the market has favored the former and is a restraint for small manufacturers. The North America region is rapidly evolving with the adoption of modern machinery and technology – this is mainly to gain a competitive edge in the high-cost and competitive market of North America.
Factors such as growing commodity pricing, increasing consumption, improving business confidence, and strong exports are primarily driving the growth in the Latin American region. Though political uncertainties and socio-economic strife remain the largest challenges for economic growth in Latin America, the steady FDI inflow, which is 12% of the world’s FDI, is likely to help in the growth. Therefore, the factors mentioned above are expected to provide traction to several end-user industries, thereby contributing to the growth of the cleanroom consumables market in the region.
