Cleanroom spending dominated by Asia for foreseeable future

August 25, 2011 — Asia’s cleanroom hardware and consumables spending will hit $7.5 billion in 2015, comprising over 60% of the global market, according to the latest revision to the McIlvaine Cleanrooms: World Markets report. America and Europe make up the bulk of the remaining market. Cleanroom demand comes from the concentration of semiconductor, flat panel display, memory storage, and solar panel manufacturing in Asia.

Hardware (cleanroom constructions, walls, floors, filters, HVAC, instrumentation, benchs, and mini-environments) will account for $2.9 billion of that $7.5 billion. This is a modest increase from 2011’s $2.3 billion in cleanroom hardware spending for the region.

Consumable purchases (clothing, gloves, wipes, masks, supplies, and chemicals) in Asia will reach $4.6 billion in 2015, up from $3.7 billion in 2011. 2015 cleanroom consumables purchases in Asia will be greater than those of the entire world in 2010. Europe and America will spend roughly the same amount, $1.5 million, on cleanroom consummables in 2015.
