Cleanroom Activity Remains Highest In Asia

Electronics and generic pharmaceutical activity in Asia continues to fuel cleanroom growth.  McIlvaine tracks the major projects in 80A World Cleanroom Projects.  

While the largest number of new cleanrooms are small, the investment per room is low.  As a result, a relatively few large cleanroom projects account for 50 percent of the filters, fans, HVAC, walls, benches and other hardware.  The large rooms also contain more high purity space.  An ISO Class 1 room builder would likely spend ten times as much per square foot for filters as would an ISO Class 8 room builder.  

For management it is very valuable and feasible to track the large room activity and thus pursue a large portion of the market directly. The large room projects slated for start up in 2016 provide an example.

Sixteen   large cleanroom projects are slated for the U.S. A solar cell project will startup in Brazil.  Nine pharmaceutical and biotech cleanrooms will be completed in France, Germany,   Iceland, Switzerland and the UK.  The rest of the projects are in Asia and are listed below.
