Cleanroom Consumables: Market Expansion to welcome New Entrants


26, May 2022

Cleanroom consumables are products like gloves, face masks/face shields, footwear, etc., used to maintain contamination within strict limits. The segment forms an integral part of the healthcare, semiconductor, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and other hi-tech manufacturing industries.

According to the Triton market research report, the global cleanroom consumables market is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 10.23% during the forecasted years, 2022-2028. The adoption of a sedentary lifestyle has become the prime factor in augmenting the prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide. This has allowed several emerging countries to mandate the use of cleanroom technology in their healthcare sector to ensure the safe manufacturing of electronic healthcare devices.

Moreover, companies with complex design and high-performance requirements are majorly focusing on building stringent quality standards for their products. For instance, UVEX Safety Group introduced a unique UVEX phynomic airLite safety glove that protects against mechanical risks. To incorporate the changes, the companies are extending their manufacturing units with cleanroom consumables, such as gloves, face masks/face shields, etc.

Key Growth Partners to the Cleanroom Consumables Market

  • Reinforcement of Semiconductor Industry by European Union

    To regain the global dominance, European Union’s initiative to enhance the investment in advanced manufacturing and packaging has rewarded the semiconductor industry. As semiconductor manufacturing plants majorly use cleanroom environments to control various sources of contamination, the demand for cleanroom consumables has increased significantly in the said industry.

  • Spread of Nanotechnology Industry

    The proliferation of nanotechnology start-ups has escalated the need for cleanroom technology. Many companies establish a limited initial investment that confines their spending on production costs. As a result, the cleanroom providers are prompted to develop small-scale solutions that provide equivalent effective results as larger-scale solutions. Therefore, the nanotechnology industry will heighten the market for cleanroom consumables in the upcoming years.

Top Segments Driving the Market Growth

The cleanroom consumables market is segmented into product type and end-user. The top segments driving the market’s growth are:

Face shields/face masks account for the largest share in the Product Type segment

The product type segment includes face shields/face masks, hoods, footwear, gown/overalls & aprons, gloves, wipes, disinfectants & cleaning products, and cleanroom packaging. The growing demand for superior quality face shields/face masks has allowed suppliers to maintain a robust supply chain, augmenting the market growth.

Electronics and semiconductor is the largest end-user of the market.

The growing demand for sensors, electronic components, and ICs in emerging technologies has induced the growth of the electronics and semiconductor segment. Also, rapid development in the production of powerful generations of processors increases the need for a cleanroom environment to ensure the robust quality of the products.

The Middle East and Africa to grow at the fastest CAGR of 11.80% from 2022 to 2028.

The United Arab Emirates holds the largest share in the region. The key factor driving the market’s growth is the expansion of the pharmaceutical industry and high investment in the semiconductor industry, which boosts the demand for cleanroom consumables.

Asia-Pacific led the global market at a CAGR of 11.51% in 2021

Owing to the presence of largely untapped markets for the pharma industry and the rising incidence of chronic disease in the healthcare sector, the region is likely to present a significant need for cleanroom consumables. Moreover, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan are leading semiconductor manufacturing hubs, thus boosting the demand for cleanrooms.

Competitive Strategic Analysis

The top companies in the market are Valutek, Berkshire Corporation, Kimberly Clark Corporation, Nitritex Ltd, Superior Cleanroom Products LLC, Helapet, Aramark, etc. These companies are strategically leveraging initiatives like technological advancements and product innovation to enhance their profitability and share. Also, SMEs are increasing their presence by tapping into new markets.

  • In April 2020, DuPont partnered with the US Department of Health and Human Services and FedEx to hasten Tyvek garments to COVID-19 relief efforts.
  • In May 2021, Helapet developed a new 1L Sterile Sharps Bin range to dispose of cytotoxic and standard contaminated waste.
  • In January 2022, Kimberly-Clark introduced powder-free Kimtech Opal Nitrile Gloves manufactured without vulcanization accelerators 1 or added sulfur. It eliminates the risk of Type I and Type IV glove risk reactions.

Closing Statement

The R&D of improved quality products and pharmaceutical drugs and a positive attitude by end-users have accelerated the use of cleanroom consumables in various industries. Also, rising priority against environmental contamination and the adoption of strict clean environment standards within the manufacturing units worldwide are expected to create prospects for the cleanroom consumables market.
