Cleanroom refers to an enclosed space that is maintained to reduce the contamination in processes that are carried out in it. It may be used for manufacturing medical goods or for research and development purposes. Various equipment used to maintain these environmental conditions in the cleanroom include high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) filters, fan filter units, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, air diffusers and showers, laminar air flow systems, and bio-safety cabinets.
The global cleanroom technologies market is estimated to account for US$ 5,828.7 Bn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
Global Cleanroom Technologies Market: Drivers
Increasing number of cleanroom facilities is expected to propel growth of the global cleanroom technologies market over the forecast period. For instance, in July 2020, Sorrel Medical, a developer and manufacturer of wearable drug delivery devices, started a new manufacturing facility with state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities to accommodate manufacturing scalability of its wearable drug delivery devices.
Moreover, investment in expanding cleanrooms is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in June 2020, Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing secured US$ 16.5 million in financing to add manufacturing capabilities and double the size of their cleanrooms.
Increasing adoption of cleanrooms in the pharmaceutical sector is expected to boost growth of the market. For instance, in February 2020, Caldic Benelux invested in a third cleanroom, allowing expansion of its pharma capabilities.
North America held dominant position in the global cleanroom technologies market in 2019, accounting for 37.1% share in terms of volume, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively.

Global Cleanroom Technologies Market: Restraints
Working in cleanrooms is a complex task that requires trained professionals to carry out operations in an effective manner. Professionals working in cleanrooms need to follow certain set of instructions. Moreover, they require proper skills to work and maintain the environmental conditions in cleanrooms. However, lack of experienced professionals, especially in emerging economies is expected to hinder growth of the global cleanroom technologies market.
Moreover, metal stud or drywall cleanrooms offer low flexibility, which is also expected to limit the market growth.
