Europe continues to fall behind. It will retain strength in pharmaceuticals but will be only a small purchaser in other segments. U.S. giants such as ITW and DuPont are among the major international suppliers of cleanroom consumables.
The industry growth will be in tandem with that of miniaturization. Nanotechnology is allowing the creation of smaller devices. Defects in small devices can be caused by particles smaller than a micrometer in diameter. This creates the need for consumable products which can contain human skin generated particles and consumables which do not themselves generate small particles.
