Increasing adoption of cleanroom robots in electronics, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical industries to minimize risk of contamination and maintain maximum cleanliness is a key factor driving revenue growth
NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Reports and Data has published its latest report titled "Cleanroom Robots Market Size, Share, Trends, By Type (Articulated Robots, Parallel Robots, SCARA Robots, Collaborative robots, Cartesian Robots), By Component, By End-use (Food and Beverages, Electrical and Electronics, Optics), and By Region Forecast to 2028."
According to the latest analysis by Reports and Data, the global cleanroom robots market size was USD 4.81 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 12.06 billion in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period, 2021-2028.
Cleanroom is defined as the room wherein major objective is to ensure no presence of airborne particles. Cleanroom minimizes introduction, generation, and retention of particles and contaminants in the confines of the room. Manual cleaning and disinfection are often insufficient to efficiently eliminating presence of pathogens on exposed or contaminated surface. Demand for cleanroom automation solutions such as robots has increased over the recent past, driven by growing need to employ more robust and reliable decontamination procedures with concurrent reduction of time and workload. Rapid growth of medical and consumer electronics industries have further boosted adoption of cleanroom robots for highly sensitive applications and to meet increasingly stringent cleanliness and hygiene standards and regulations mandated by regulatory authorities, and this is expected to continue to drive market revenue growth over the forecast period. In addition, cleanroom robots enhance manufacturing accuracy, efficiency, and productivity, and improve overall safety of sensitive products.
Cleanroom robots are designed to adhere to the robust cleanliness guidelines for facilities where products that are increasingly sensitive to dust and other pollutants are manufactured. These units are specially sealed, are equipped with stainless steel hardware, internal vacuums, and non-gassing lubricants. Most processes that require high cleanliness standards are performed in cleanrooms. Cleanrooms are widely used in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, consumer electronics, and telecommunications industries. Cleanroom robots used in certain pharmaceuticals and medical applications require conformance to cleanroom standards with enhanced speed, reliability, and repeatability. The robots for these cleanrooms are designed with major focus on convenient usage, and to ensure robots do not become a source of contamination, and enable easy cleaning and maintenance. Cleanroom robots are ideal for sensitive tasks such as handling small electronic components, minimize contamination during manufacturing of wafers and microprocessors, and to ensure safety of pharmaceuticals produced. Cleanroom robots can effectively and safely automate pharmaceutical and medical device industries by maintaining clean and sterile environments during medical device assembly and production of pharmaceutical products such as tablets, syringes, and IV bags among others. Cleanroom robot automation has largely benefitted the food industry as it has eliminated the need for human interaction with various products and processes, which in turn, has reduced the risk of food items being contaminated to a significant extent. Electronics and semiconductor industries have been rapidly deploying cleanroom robots to ensure components that are sensitive to dust and other particles are safe and uncontaminated to avoid financial burden on manufacturers. Cleanroom robots can automate machine loading and keep production lines clean. In order to reduce dependency on humans in challenging areas of manufacturing and production, manufacturers across the globe are rapidly adopting cleanroom robots – particularly driven by rising need to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Cleanroom robots have a number of challenges concerned with precision, accuracy, and constant threat of contamination. In addition, high costs of installation and maintenance of cleanroom robots can potentially limit their adoption and can hamper market growth to a certain extent over the forecast period. Using stainless steel bearing and cleanroom grease can be a simple and effective way to mitigate risks of contamination from robots and ensure smooth running of facilities.
