Cleanrooms are environments used in semiconductor, biotechnology, medical devices, life sciences, and aerospace industries. Cleanroom cables are flexible in nature, and do not emit dust particulates into the controlled environment. Cleanroom is usually an enclosed area or space which has controlled environment in terms of airborne particulates, microbes, contaminants of dust, pollutants, and chemical vapors. The environment is controlled with specific temperature, humidity and pressure conditions. It was observed that there is an increasing application of cleanrooms in nanotechnology sector due to the manufacture of minuscule products. These rooms help in production and testing phases that involves small particles that must be handled carefully to prevent the transfer of dust or any other form of contamination. These factors are boosting the adoption of cleanroom cables. Cleanroom cables enable the production of defect-free nano products by preventing contamination by unwanted elements. Increasing awareness and adoption of cleanrooms in colleges is to offer students high-end research facilities.
Cleanroom cable market in Asia comprises of several well-known local and international vendors and suppliers. The prominent vendors in Asia’s cleanroom cable industry are LEONI, Alpha Wire, Igus, SAB Brockskes, Cicoil, W. L. Gore & Associates, Helukabel and Gore. Cleanroom cable market in Asia is categorized into single core cable and multi core cable. Geographically, the cleanroom cable market in Asia is spread across China, India, Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia and other regions.
According to the study “Asia Cleanroom Cables Industry Situation and Prospects Research report”, cleanroom cable market within the medical segment includes pharmaceuticals, biotech, medical devices, hospitals, and life sciences which is witnessing a rapid growth due to need to avoid contamination. Modified polyphenylene ether thermoplastic cables have a reduced rate of outgassing and are more compact than the available traditional wires. Thus, these materials are increasingly preferred for cleanrooms over traditional PVC cables. Cleanroom cables are smaller and lighter than PVC cables with superior dielectric strength.
Key factors responsible for the growth of cleanroom cables market are increasing healthcare industry, stringent healthcare regulation, demand for quality product, rise in healthcare spending, increased demand for sterilized pharmaceutical product, growing prevalence of contagious and infectious diseases. It was observed that the establishment of cleanroom in healthcare facilities is expensive and will restricting the growth of the market in Asia at a minimum level.
Industrialization in emerging economies such as China and India has led to significant growth opportunities in the cleanroom cable technology market. Consumers’ awareness and dependence on electronics, semiconductor industries, and pharmaceutical industry will drive the adoption of cleanroom cables. Cleanroom technology market is expected to witness a steady growth due to rising regulatory framework, growing pharmaceutical, biotechnology industry and demand for quality products. Additionally, the increasing adoption of modified polyphenylene ether thermoplastic cables will drive the cleanroom cable market during the next few years.
