The growth of this market is majorly driven by the rising demand for sterilized pharmaceutical formulations, increasing demand for medical devices. The technological advancements in cleanroom technology along with the increasing demand for cleanroom technologies in developing economies are expected to offer significant opportunities for market growth in the coming years. 

The use and maintenance of a cleanroom is a complex process. Usually, the cost of construction of standard cleanrooms for pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing may range between USD 100 to more than USD 1,000 per square foot. Also, the price per square foot is not the same for ISO 6 and ISO 8 cleanrooms. 

Cleanrooms are mostly designed according to customer requirements based on product specifications and customer-specific design requirements. However, there are no specific guidelines for cleanroom designs for different application areas or product types. This leads to several challenges for cleanroom manufacturers, as they need to follow different designs every time.
