Global Biological Safety Cabinets Market is valued at USD 170.6 Million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 300.1 Million by 2027 with a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period.
Global Biological Safety Cabinets Market: Global Size, Trends, Competitive, Historical & Forecast Analysis, 2021-2027- Increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, rising number of research and development in the field of biotechnology and life science, and growing investments in medical sector are major factors anticipated to drive the growth of Global Biological Safety Cabinets Market.
The tools used for protecting personnel, products and the environment from exposure to cross contaminations and biohazards are called as biological safety cabinets (BSCs). The primary concern of BSC is to work safely with infectious microorganisms and viruses. Protection against aerosols and particulates can be achieved through these biological safety cabinets. Sometimes it is referred as a laminar stream or tissue culture hood. These separated cabinets are basically intended to protect against exposure to particulates or vapour sprayers. A part of the air in many BSCs is recycled once again into the lab through its exhaust HEPA channel. This decontaminates the air of possibly irresistible vapour sprayers, animal dander, or both however don’t decrease exposure to chemicals.
HEPA filter passes the air which provides protection against the high-risk group 4 pathogenic organisms. Biosafety cabinet provides protection personnel handling from infectious material and environment by preventing release of microbes. BSCs reduce risk of contaminant release to the lab and risk of product contamination. They also avoid cross contamination. Biosafety Cabinets are widely used in clinical research, life science, medical and pharmaceutical sectors, drug preparation, chemotherapy preparation, and industrial laboratories. Biological safety cabinets first became commercially obtainable in 1950.
The Covid-19 pandemic has shown a positive impact on the growth of global biological safety cabinets market. The Covid-19 is highly infectious and can be spread very easily from one person to other. Biological safety level is used while working with human specimens, because all human materials must be treated as potentially infectious. Also, grants and funds for the creation of vaccine and drug approval need safe cabinets to avoid the spread of the infection, in this way raise the demand for biological safety cabinets. CDC also published interim laboratory biosafety guidelines, for those labs who will handle specimens from Covid-19 patients, which is positively impacted the global biological safety cabinets market.
Some of the key players for global biological safety cabinets market are
The global biological safety cabinets market is segmented on the basis of type, application, end-user and region & country level. On the basis of type, the market has classified class I, class II, and class III. The class II segment includes type A and type B. On the basis of application, the global biological safety cabinets market is segmented into research and development, industrial, and academic. Based on end-user, the market is segmented into diagnostic & testing laboratories, pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, and others.
On July 1st, 2019; Telstar launched a high-performing, comfortable, clean, energy-saving high innovative range of high-end Class II Biological Safety Cabinets. The new ergonomic BiOptima cabinet Telstar is designed to be completely adapted to the operator’s physical attributes, for high-risk microbiological research and highly toxic applications featuring low noise levels, low power consumption, and low maintenance costs. The new high-end Class II biosafety cabinet guarantees optimum efficiency and high-level energy savings, as well as presents a new breakthrough ergonomic design. It was available in two varieties according to the EN12469 standard. A BiOptima standard model integrated with two HEPA filters for microbiological research with biological agents (bacteria, viruses, etc.) and allergens and second is BiOptima Cyto. It has three HEPA filters, according to the DIN12980 norm, addressed to work with high-risk microbiological and highly toxic applications, such as the production of cytotoxic drugs. It has been certified from the European EN 12469 standard for Microbiological Safety Cabinets, by TUV Nord in Hamburg (Germany).
One of the major factors driving the growth of the global biological safety cabinets market is increasing prevalence of infectious diseases. A biological safety cabinet (BSC) is the main apparatus utilized in diagnostic and examination research laboratories to protect the item, the individual, and the environment. Therefore during working use of biological safety cabinets is most important as it contain components like laminar flows, ultraviolet lamps and HEPA filters, ultraviolet lamps which create a sterile environment in workstation. Thus, increasing number of infectious diseases will directly increase the market of biological safety cabinet market, as they are used during diagnosis of disease and other study related to disease. For instance; according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, approximately 10 million people had tuberculosis infectious disease, globally.
In addition, another factor driving the growth of the market is rising research and development activities in the field of biotechnology and life science. During research and development in biotechnology labs work involves toxins, infectious components as well as working with tissue culture or cell culture or in microbiology labs where product contamination must be avoided. Protection of user the work product, and the environment, and mitigation of cross-contamination on the work surface are needed. Biological safety cabinets are used in the laboratory for prevention of lab acquired infections to personnel. Thus, applications of biological safety cabinets driving its growth in research and development. For example; Air science developed The Purair BIO biological safety cabinet (BSC) is certified for security and performance in accordance with NSF/ANSI Standard 49 and EN12469 which certifies Class II, Type A2 biological safety cabinets for the research reason.
Furthermore, growing investments in medical sector is also fostering the market growth. The pharmaceutical companies must follow definitive contamination prevention and strategies to create safe and hygienic sterile environment. Thus, there is a necessity of biological safety cabinets in the medical sector and investments it further fueling the growth of the market. For instance; according to the Federal Research and Development, the American Association for Advancement of Science had funded $54,565 million to businesses for new scientific development.
However, high cost of biological safety cabinets and other alternatives may hamper the biological safety cabinet’s market growth. In spite of that, technological advancement to develop more innovative biological safety cabinets can provide various opportunities for the further growth of the global biological safety cabinet’s market.
North America is expected to dominate the global biological safety cabinets market due to rising number of chronic diseases, adoption of superior technologies, and presence of key companies in this region. One of the major factors driving the growth of biological safety cabinets in North America is increasing number of chronic diseases. For example, in 2019, Thermo Fisher Scientific launched two class II biosafety cabinets, Herasafe and Maxisafe 2030i systems, which are more advanced as compared to the already available biosafety cabinets.
The Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the global biological safety cabinets due to the increasing biomedical research and research by pharmaceutical players for drug development and supportive government initiatives. For instance; Indian government announced plan to set up BSL-3 Laboratories under Pradhan Mantri Atmanirbhar Yojana according to India Brand Equity Foundation under Union Budget 2020-21.
The regions covered in global biological safety cabinets market report are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Rest of the World. On the basis of country level, the market of global biological safety cabinets is subdivided into U.S., Mexico, Canada, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, China, India, Japan, South East Asia, Middle East Asia (UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia) GCC, Africa, etc.
