Cleanrooms are in huge demand within the pharmaceutical, biotech and medical devices industry. Various pharmaceuticals, such as vaccines, injections, and ointments, and medical devices such as implants and surgical equipment need to be prepared in an environment that is free from microbes and particulates. Cleanroom offers suitable environmental conditions by lowering the level of pollutants, such as dust, chemical vapors, microbes, and aerosol particles. Such conditions can be prepared only in cleanrooms. Several legislations have been passed worldwide, regarding the manufacturing of medical devices in cleanrooms. These legislations focus on the manufacturing of contamination free products, which can be used directly for internal purposes without the risk of infection.
The technological advancements in the field of cleanroom technology help to improve the efficiency of cleanrooms with production of better quality sterile products. It helps in providing an ideal environment to manufacture products with low pollutants. The technological advancements help to overcome defects in designing and workflow of cleanrooms, which is driving the demand for cleanrooms.
The restraints associated with the global cleanroom technology market include the high cost of cleanroom equipment such as HEPA filters, fan filter units, HVAC systems, laminar air flow systems, bio-safety cabinets, and air showers and lack of lack of properly qualified and skilled workforce.
