Europe Cleanroom Technology Market
The prevalence of infectious diseases is growing rapidly all across the globe, including Europe. A very recent example is that of the COVID-19, which is spreading at a very quick pace around the world. The fact that there’s no vaccine yet for curing the diseases is a major cause of concern. European countries, including Italy and the U.K. have been hot hardly by this deadly virus, owing to which the demand for the cleanroom technology in the region is rising, as they are vital for the drug development process.
This is due to the fact that these products are used widely for maintaining the aseptic environment in a number of industries. Safety, including apparel and gloves, and cleaning, vacuum systems, wipes, and disinfectants, are the two types of consumable that are used in cleanrooms. Different types of cleanrooms are pass-through cleanrooms, standard cleanrooms, softwall cleanrooms, and hardwall cleanrooms. Out of these, the demand for standard cleanrooms was the highest in the past, which is due to the presence of large medical device and pharmaceutical companies that opt for standard cleanrooms to produce critical products.
Other than this, the demand for hardwall cleanrooms is also predicted to increase in the years to come, which can be ascribed to the rising research and development activities in pharmaceuticals in the region. The process involves heavy usage of hardwall cleanrooms, which are designed specifically for research activities. Medical devices, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries are the major users of cleanrooms in the European region. The pharmaceutical industry made the most use of cleanrooms in the past, owing to the growing number of pharma companies and increasing investments in pharmaceutical research activities.
The rising incidence of infectious diseases is one of the key factors resulting in the increasing demand for the cleanroom technology in Europe. As per the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is one of the most prevalent diseases in the region, with almost 30,000 new cases recorded every year. It was reported that approximately 29,444 people were suffering from HIV in 31 countries of the European Union (EU) in 2016. The other most common diseases prevalent in the region are hepatitis B, respiratory tract infections, and tuberculosis, which is raising the demand for drugs and medical devices.
The other major factors propelling the demand for cleanroom consumables and equipment in Europe are the soaring investments in research and development (R&D) aimed at producing new medicines for the treatment of various diseases and ailments, and the growing biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in the region. As per the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA), investments worth $41,822.4 million were made by the industry in R&D in 2016, which significantly pushed the adoption of cleanroom technology in the region.
In Europe, pharmaceutical production is increasing at a rapid rate, mainly due to the rising demand for drugs, on account of the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and surging geriatric population. As per the EFPIA, the region reported pharmaceutical production worth $337,825 million in 2016. Apart from pharmaceutical, cleanrooms are required in the medical devices and biotechnology industries. Out of these, the pharmaceutical industry recorded the highest usage of cleanroom consumables and devices in 2017, primarily due to the rising number of pharmaceutical companies in Europe, which are mandated to have cleanrooms.
Germany recorded the highest adoption of the cleanroom technology in Europe in the past, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the increasing number of cleanroom technology providing companies and ballooning incorporation of cleanroom products in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in the country. France is predicted to register the fastest growth in the adoption of the cleanroom technology in the continent in years to come, owing to the presence of numerous companies offering and using these solutions. As a result, the European cleanroom technology market will grow rapidly in France.
Hence, it is clear that owing to the burgeoning demand for a pollutant- and contaminant-free environment in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical devices industries and increasing awareness regarding hygiene and sterilization, the demand for cleanrooms will rise in Europe in future.
Within the region, Germany emerged as the largest European cleanroom technology market in the past. The country is known specially for its emphasis on quality and has a highly-developed healthcare system, in terms of infrastructure. In addition to this, the country is witnessing a steady demand for innovative minimally invasive equipment and therapeutic and diagnostic medical devices that are utilized in the field of neuro-surgery, dermatology, gastroenterology, and urology, which is also leading to a rising utilization for cleanrooms. In the coming years, France is also projected to register significant demand for cleanrooms because of the presence of major companies in the domain and enhancing healthcare infrastructure.
Hence, the demand for cleanrooms in Europe is growing due to the surging prevalence of infectious diseases.
