Biological Safety Cabinet Market Overview:


The biological safety cabinet market size is projected to grow at CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Biological Safety cabinets are biocontainment equipment generally utilized in biological research centers and laboratories to ensure the protection of the personnel involved in the research, and to prevent any environmental hazard. The Biological Safety Cabinets are categorized as Class I, Class II, Class III cabinets. The class I cabinets tend to protect the personnel and environment. The cabinet is not designed to offer product protection, contamination of samples is the higher degree of risks featured in the class I category. Since the laboratory research works involve pathogens and other harmful organisms, a potential protective environment is necessary. A HEPA filtered cabinet can potentially remove harmful bacteria and viruses. 


Installation of UV bulbs is recommended to proper disinfection properties and reduces the exposure risk in the laboratories. For germicide and virucide disinfection, UV radiation is utilized in the Biological Safety Cabinet. There are certain standards and regulations in the maintenance of the biological Safety cabinet. The primary tests include, Air velocity, Air barrier testing, filter integrity, gas tightness, leak testing, particle counting with the work zone, UV light effectiveness are some of the key tests to be performed to ensure they comply with the country’s standards and regulations.


COVID 19 Analysis:


The COVID has hit several industries and commercial units. Sudden changes in the global economy, reduction in production units have created a huge uncertainty throughout the world. Such condition has propelled the researches and vaccinations against deadly viruses. Several organizations have increased their investments in researches and research-related activities. 


Such factors have increased the demand for the biological safety cabinet market. The COVID samples are processed at the laboratories which require significant protection for the personnel involved in the testing. Such factors are stimulating the overall growth of the biological safety cabinet market during the pandemic. Additionally, pharmaceutical manufacturers also utilize diagnostic labs to check the microbiological quality of drugs. The widespread pandemic and growing viral infections have augmented the overall growth of the Biological Safety Cabinet industry. 


Biological Safety Cabinet Market Dynamics:


Drivers:


The increasing risk of pandemic and viral infections across the globe has stimulated the demand for the biological safety cabinet market. In recent times, pandemics and communicable diseases are tremendously growing, On the other hand, the prevalence of chronic illness is increasing therefore the pharmaceutical companies are increasing the production of medicines due to increasing demand. These are considered as the primary factors for the growth of the Biological Safety Cabinet industry.


The features like HEPA Filters, ultraviolet lamps, laminar flows are enhancing the protection and offer a sterile environment for the research works. The quality of service offered by the Safety cabinet is considered the primary driving factor for the growth of the Biological Safety Cabinet industry.


Opportunities: 


Pharmaceutical companies are focusing on the microbiological quality of drugs. The microbiological quality of medicines is crucial for efficacy and patient safety. The regulations and laws also impose strict laws regarding quality control. The microbial contamination of the drug could affect the patients’ health and bring in long-term effects such as cancer or other health issues. These factors present a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the industry.


The increasing chronic illness and infectious diseases are also presenting a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the Biological Safety Cabinet industry. A recent study from the World Health Organization has estimated that there were over 10 million people affected by tuberculosis with over 1.1 million children were affected by the condition. Such estimates have stimulated the growth of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry across the globe, which has significantly affected the growth of the industry.


Restraints:


The increasing trend of compounding isolators is hindering the growth of the Biological Safety Cabinet industry in recent times. The compounding isolator is capable of providing higher air quality and uncompromised isolation continuously, the supreme quality and performance of the isolators are currently considered as the competition for the growth of the industry.


Increasing costs for the setup and manufacturing of the cabinets and regular maintenance of the cabinets require dedicated efforts and significant costs. These are considered as primary restraints for the growth of the industry.


Challenges:


The costs of the biological safety cabinet range between USD 9500 and USD 12000, which is considered as heavier costs for the smaller pharmaceutical organizations, Moreover, the class I type is not adequate to protect the product integrity. Product quality is considered the primary challenge in the Biological Safety Cabinet industry.


The reluctance in accepting the product in the market is also considered as the challenge for the overall growth of the industry. The restrictions and regulations regarding the utilization of UV bulbs in the safety cabinets are also considered as the primary challenge for the growth of the industry.


Cumulative Growth Analysis:


The recent advancements brought in by the manufacturers of the Biological Safety Cabinets have increased the overall growth of the biological safety cabinet market. The attractive features such as proprietary airflow, energy optimization, and efficiency, flexible structure, height stand that enhances the workflow, UV light, arm protecting aids, armrests are propelling the overall demand for the industry. The digital interface in the cabinets enables easy control and reduces the complexity during the operations. These factors are expected to fuel the growth of the industry in the forecast period.


However, proper certification and maintenance are necessary for the steady growth of the market. As the researches might involve hazardous elements, they must be regularly inspected by trained personnel and must acquire certification that they are safe.


Value chain analysis:


The vital procedures such as centrifugation, vortexing, handling infectious materials require safety measures. These procedures should be done in the Biological Safety Cabinets. The researchers could choose from varied options of cabinets that offer varying degrees of protection. Considering the operations, they could choose from Class I, Class II, Class II types of cabinets. Class II has two types with it. However, the prominent type used in the US is Class II type A.


The demand for the Laminar flow hoods cabinets has reduced because the cabinet offers a sterile environment for the work area however exposes the worker to hazardous air. On the other hand, the chemical fume hoods offer protection for the workers but don’t provide a sterile work environment. Such factors are hindering the overall growth of the biological safety cabinet market. However increasing investments in the industry, medical sector and life sciences in recent years are stimulating the growth of the industry.
