Cleanroom consumables market to exceed $8 billion in 2015
The global cleanroom market consists of a plethora of consumables and hard ware products carrying phenomenal precision and quality.
The biotech and pharmaceutical sectors require cleanrooms and controlled environments which need to control the concentration of airborne particles, micro-organisms, temperature, humidity, and pressure.
The cleanroom trends began in the area of medicine and research where experts saw a close relationship between hygiene and manufacturing quality products.
As Indian pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry faces stringent manufacturing and export regulations from Indian and foreign regulatory bodies, companies now are seeking to match up with superior quality in their manufacturing processes, and the demand for cleanrooms is now catching up far more than ever before.
Says Mr P Pradeep, CEO, Whitenair Technologies, "Cleanroom technology has great demand in the biotech sector and is growing day-by-day. The sector is involved in multiple activities such as safety laboratories, production units, bio-exclusion, and animal supply facility to name a few. Cleanrooms and controlled environment play a crucial role in the bio technology industry."
In 2014, McIlvaine predicted that there will be 131 million sq.ft of cleanroom space in use across the world. This is an increase of five percent in 2013.
It also states that in 2013, the pharmaceutical industry employed 2.3 million people in the cleanroom industry, which can jump to 2.4 million by 2015.
In terms of cleanroom consumables, Asia is projected to be the largest hub by 2015 witnessing growth in consumables and hard ware products.
